Tides from The Transonics

Written by on 1 September 2021

With so much experimentalism blowing up in the underground at the moment, there’s been a lot of debate among critics as to what constitutes smart compositional dabbling and what is merely a cheap recreation of Sonic Youth, but in the case of the new record Tides from The Transonics, I think the talent of the creators speaks […]

“Grown Up Love” by Ben Bostick

Written by on 19 August 2021

Americana is an easy label to slap on Ben Bostick’s new album Grown Up Love but misses the larger picture. Bostick utilizes an assortment of traditional instruments seldom used in modern songwriting and his influences skew towards the blues/folk end of the spectrum but, more than anything else, these tracks are an auditory document, an autobiographical statement […]

The Color Forty Nine Release New Music

Written by on 24 July 2021

A quaint strum here, an aggressive harmony there. Spun together out of fragmented melodies and broken emotions reimagined in lyrics, we find a bittersweet story to behold in the new album String Ladders from The Color Forty Nine that perhaps speaks to the fractures in alternative music, both self-created and aesthetically inevitable. In songs like the short […]

“The Last Gun” by Eagle Johnson

Written by on 16 July 2021

At once reminiscent of the growling tonal menace of The Stooges and something even further left of the dial, Eagle Johnson’s fretwork in the new album The Last Gun is probably the biggest reason it left me hypnotized upon hearing it for the first time. For the past ten years, good guitar rock has been inconceivably hard […]
