The Top 10 Songs of September, 2014

Written by : Categories : The Latest Comments: Comments are off for this post

Your opinion matters on Gashouse Radio! We want to know what our listeners think of the songs we play on air. So we have these thumbs up/down buttons that you can use to share your opinion on each track. If a song gets a lot of thumbs down, we pull it from rotation. If a song gets enough thumbs up, it could end up in our Top 10 Countdown, which airs every day at 5am and 5pm.


The Top 10 Countdown tallies the votes from the past 4 days to give you an idea of the current most popular songs on Gashouse. Then, at the end of each month, we tally the votes from the entire month and post them here.


These are the top 10 songs of September, 2014:

Winchester Revival release Eyes in the Canopy

wr8 300x199 Winchester Revival release Eyes in the Canopy


This band from East Bay, California is composed of four members: Kirk Snedeker : drums; Ron Cruz : bass; David Rosenheim : vocals; Matt Glick : electronics; Andrew Lund : guitar, backing vocals


Right from the start this unique band stands out from other artists in a good way within this overly saturated market. Their answer to mundane music is to deliver something unique, and powerful full of light hearted tales of fun and intellectual Rush-type lyrics and wisdom. In this overly saturated market with a plethora of Do it Yourself artists coming out of the woodwork, armed with nothing more than a PC, Microphone, a guitar and a crappy sounding CD – it’s nice to know there are a few artists out there that can still deliver music that will make your jaw hit the floor while inspiring you to start a riot at the same time. These new artists I speak of manage push their music out to the world and much of it is, do I dare say substandard in nature. So enter a hot band like Winchester Revival who just released their much anticipated “Eyes in the Canopy“ EP in 2014. So what do artists like Rush, 311, Hoobastank, Chevelle, and Queens of the Stone Age have that Winchester Revival don’t? Not much if you ask me save the multi million dollars promotional machines and major record label support. These guys are a good band break the mold with their classic neo-alternative rock sound and amazing movements that will mesmerize both the novice and advanced listeners alike.


This CD is shall I say off the hook good with entertaining songwriting that  has deep seeded 80’s rock roots but also possesses elements of Progressive Alternative Rock. Many of these tracks “Chemical Yellow” and Matterhorn” and the breathtaking closer ”Submarine Bell” delivers a smooth rock feel to them while “Wonderland” get my pick for best track on the catalog. The playing skills of this band are all over the map but manage to never cross into “freak show” territory. But getting back to this band – they are a premier talent that makes this whole experience special. Vocals from Rosenheim are intoxicating and the music is like a drug, and with the arsenal of experiences these five gently takes you by the hand and leads you down an impassioned 5 track journey called “Eyes in the Canopy.”

Right now after hearing the music of Winchester Revival I must say they are the quintessential Intellectual Alternative Rock band the world needs right now. If I had to compare them to one band it would be Perfect Circle and Rush because in the end these guys are probably a bunch of cool, intellectual nerds from the Oakland area that decided to form a good rock band, never looking back. I don’t say stuff like that often, and they are at the top of their game with this amazing crystal-clear sound and vibe.


All in all “Eyes in the Canopy” is a great musical advent. Apparently there are still a few bands out there believe in playing and writing music the way it is meant to be played – without airing their dirty laundry in the process.

new music this week New Music This Week

Every week on Gashouse Radio we present some of the latest submissions. These are brand new bands to the station, and we’d like to know what you think of each of them. Simply tune in to The Radar every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We play a round at 9am ET, 2pm and during our show Gashouse Live at 6pm.

When you hear a song you like (and that goes for anytime day/night on Gashouse) share your opinion using the thumbs up/down buttons. They are located on the left hand side under the album artwork. They’re also located above the chat room, and on the Gashouse Radio Android/iPhone apps. These votes determine how often the songs are played in rotation after their week on The Radar. Enough votes could also earn them a spot in our Top 10 Countdown (which airs everyday at 5am and 5pm ET).

Here are the bands providing new music this week on The Radar:

1335410996 Today the Moon  Tomorrow the Sun close 1 New Music This WeekToday the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun: A band of four: two girls, two boys. Noisy, dancy, loud, sincere, sweaty, loveable, hardworking.

Tim Wheatley & Crooked Saint: Since establishing ‘Crooked Saint’, Australian singer/songwriter Tim Wheatley has been hard at it. The last two years have seen him release two independent ‘Alt/Country’ EP’s and two singles, all to critical acclaim, amidst touring the country three times over. In which time ‘Tim Wheatley & Crooked Saint’ has managed to straddle both independent and mainstream radio within Australia with the help of ARIA award winning producer, Paul Mckercher.

Monks of MellonwahThe Monks of Mellonwah are a band from Sydney, Australia whose music displays a masterful and unique blend of intense space, driving riffs and sharp metaphors. Check them out at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA this Friday, June 20th.

Linda Draper: While growing up in a musical household with parents and siblings who are all musicians (father Frederick is a classical guitar virtuoso who studied with Andres Segovia), Brooklyn based lyric slinger/folk-singer Linda Draper listened to everything from Bach to “Bop” from an early age, soon moving on to the church choir and then to writing her own songs on the guitar as a teenager.

MODA: We are a new rock band from Russia! From the city of St. Petreburg , We international team! Drums – Ron Krasinski (Memphis, USA), Bass – Dave Smith (Memphis , USA) , Guitar – Vasiliy Vavilov (Russia) , Guitar – Petr Bodrov (Russia) , Vocal – Vladimir Ranevskiy.

Camp 4 Deranged Kidz: Now for a band that has no sense of musical boundaries, restrictions, or sanity. “The Camp 4 Deranged Kidz” Join the camp.

The Better Half: The Better Half are a straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll band from Philadelphia. With a melody-driven hard rock sound, The Better Half are classic rock and modern alternative all at the same time. While the band is known for it’s high-octane live shows, they are famous for their soft side as well, often playing intimate acoustic shows in smaller venues around the area. The band has shared stages with the likes of Fuel, Halestorm, Cavo, ZO2, Black Stone Cherry, Adelitas Way, Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row), Saves The Day, and more.

Against The Clocks: We are 4 piece Indie Rock band from the Indianapolis area. We have two EPs for download on We play with Wine & Spirit and The Hawkeyes around the Pittsburg area so look for us.
