Impresario’s passion and sincerity draws you in during lockdown with ‘Songs From Inside’

Written by on 20 July 2020

Whatever we can say about Impresario, he really means everything he sings. The passion and sincerity are the first hook that draws you in. The album art shows us a Closed Road, but Impresario takes small personal moments experienced during a home lock-down and paints them in a universal way. Is Whatsoever You Do about […]

Forest Ray’s new single/video “Shadows”

Written by on 20 July 2020

Second out of the gate on Forest Ray’s Black Pine album is the new single “Shadows”. Established Seattle band Forest Ray go the distance again with this nod to 60s surf and psychedelic rock. And in the same vein as the song “Honesty”, listeners will immerse themselves in the splendor of twangy guitar melted to […]

HeIsTheArtist’s new single “Boom – Love Version”

Written by on 15 July 2020

Slow and steamy yet not hesitant nor lacking in impulsiveness of the best sort, the groove in HeIsTheArtist’s new single “Boom – Love Version” is as much a communicator of emotion as any of the words being crooned to us are, if not a little more so in a couple of key moments. HeIsTheArtist establishes […]

Billy Ray Rock’s new single “Get the Funk”

Written by on 14 July 2020

Funk has been making a major comeback in the last few years, and for evidence supporting this, I’d recommend taking a peek at the underground pulse and some of its brightest new stars – such as Billy Ray Rock. Billy Ray Rock’s new single “Get the Funk” is a celebration of funk that doesn’t tether […]

Dizzy Box Nine release Faster Than Anticipation

Written by on 10 July 2020

Dizzy Box Nine aren’t trying to keep up with the Joneses of mainstream rock in their new album, the hard and slick Faster Than Anticipation. They aren’t flirting with the synthetic harmonies of a commercially-bankrolled sound, nor do they ever show even the slightest interest in recycling some of the jaded riffing of their punk influences […]

Les Nuby releases debut solo album “Clouded”

Written by on 10 July 2020

Colorful, bright and immediately mood-producing, the first few seconds we hear in Les Nuby’s debut solo album Clouded are defined by the guitar’s melody in “Never Falling Away,” one of the record’s most inspired songs – but not the only track here worth taking a second look at. The hard-charging distortion and glowing vocal harmonies set the pace for […]

Roundeye releases “Culture Shock Treatment” (LP)

Written by on 9 July 2020

They say the third time’s a charm, and this is definitely true of Round Eye’s latest album, the relentlessly volatile Culture Shock Treatment. Culture Shock Treatment clocks in at a mere thirty-nine minutes in total running time, but it includes fifteen songs that are almost guaranteed to quake the ground beneath your floorboards this summer – even at […]

Paul Mark & the Van Dorens’ Gravity LP

Written by on 1 July 2020

Skulking piano keys, smoke-stained harmonies and the occasional blues guitar lead can all be found within the twelve songs on Paul Mark & the Van Dorens’ Gravity LP this June, and in some cases, all three of these elements come colliding into each other in the most epic of ways. Take “The Next Fight” for example; though […]

German band: Riches of the Poor release debut Album

Written by on 30 June 2020

Coming at us in waves of uneven rhythm that collide into one another to form something quite twisted and beautiful at the same time, there’s no stopping Riches of the Poor’s “Not Enough” once it gets started. One of the cornerstones of the band’s new album The Long Way Down, “Not Enough” attacks us with a […]
