Forgotten Door release Self-Titled EP

Written by on 29 January 2020

Las Vegas headquartered six piece Forgotten Door’s SELF-TITLED EP certainly pays tribute to iconic acts like Stevie Nicks-era Fleetwood Mac, among others, but there’s much more going on here. Their original compositions boast identifiable reference points without lapsing into outright imitation; it is as if Forgotten Door’s songwriting absorbed those lessons and transformed them through […]

Jonathan Emile’s new single “Moses”

Written by on 28 January 2020

Full of as much ache as the vocal is, the glare of the harmonica’s melody at the start of Jonathan Emile’s new single “Moses” sets the tone for the entire song soon to follow in quite the Dylan-esque fashion. Charged with emotion and a raw vulnerability that isn’t common among the mainstream side of pop […]

Incendiary Heart by Andy Michaels

Written by on 18 January 2020

In his second record, titled Incendiary Heart, Andy Michaels throws out the rulebook when it comes to making a sophomore album and focuses solely on getting back to the basics of songwriting, and though this approach could rightly be described as somewhat minimalistic compared to what he did in Revisited, his 2018 debut, it’s an aesthetic that […]

Flat River Band releases LP 

Written by on 18 January 2020

Guitars sizzle with just the slightest bit of electrified overdrive in “In Another World.” A gentle string section dances around us in a simple strut in “John R. Brinkley.” Melodies rumble with a menacing melodicism in “Wings of a Rumor.” “Beauty Amongst the Trees” calls out to us with its unrealized catharsis just as “Every […]

Baseball Gregg drop new Single

Written by on 12 December 2019

Shot in Hong Kong and filmed in Moscow by Luca Lovisetto and Sam Regan, the companion video to “Hong Kong Hike” is a myriad of images and captures the simplicities of everyday life. Transportation and the pulse of large cities emerge at their core it’s all about the human existence. The smiles are as optimistic […]

City of Love (single) by Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene

Written by on 9 December 2019

Kerry Pastine and her husband/guitarist Paul Shellooe have with “City of Love” a single leaning hard on vintage musical values yet sounding thoroughly modern and never imitative. Yes, Pastine works within an established tradition on this release, but it doesn’t stop her, Shellooe, or the other members of the Crime Scene from recasting these time-tested […]

Captain Profundo by Jesse Rundle

Written by on 6 December 2019

Based on the song title alone, listeners may expect Jesse Rundle’s “Captain Profundo” to be some sort of psychedelic musical trip, but they couldn’t be more wrong. This is a folk song, through and through, with some modern adornments helping ground it in the present. “Captain Profundo” isn’t purist folk, a musical butterfly trapped under […]
