Nine Lies – 9 Lies

Nine Lies - Stevie Mann

There is something about listening to rock that makes me excited. I’m not sure what it is or why it happens, but rock peps me up. It energizes me, even when I’m depressed. I could be suffering from food poisoning, keeling over from nausea, and all it takes is a good rock band to cure […]

Qualia – Triptych

Qualia - Triptych

The Astrals, originally formed in France, took their time creating their self-titled EP (starting the project in 2011) so that they could pour everything they had into […]
