R. Missing – Unsummering

rmfeat

There’s really not a lot out there about R. Missing, a band who lists their band members as “She Missing” and “He Missing” on their Facebook page. All I can really say is that they apparently want to fight you.

The History Of Colour TV – Something Like Eternity

THOCTVfeat

The History Of Colour TV may sound like something you’ll see on a mildly interesting episode of “How It’s Made.” However, it’s not. In this instance, we’re talking about a much more ambiguous and non-linear subject. What we’re referencing in these lines is a band with that same name.

The Motel Pines – A Sad History

tmpfeat

According to the Facebook bio, The Motel Pines’ name “represents an older motel in an area where nice new businesses are springing up all around it. Not being phased by all the revitalization, it has stayed true to its old-school vibe.” Drummer Mark Starling describes this as a fitting metaphor for his group because like […]

Indie Christmas Playlist

Spotify has a huge assortment of festive playlists. You can hear anything from LCD Soundsystem creating a Christmas tune to the classic Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. Maybe you’re looking for something that will help get you in the holiday spirit but you’re not really feeling the usual classics that are on repeat in the shopping […]

Jared Mancuso – Superdope

Jared Mancuso is either Buddy Holly reincarnated or a musician born many years too late. He even has the look and the whole nine yards. He’s actually portrayed Holly as an actor and in his own tribute act called Not Fade Away.

King Washington is made up of four dudes – Tyson Kelly on vocals, guitar and keys; George Krikes on guitar and vocals; Billy Lee with bass and vocals and David Contreras on drums. The band is usually defined as having an indie rock sound with a hint of 60’s/70’s influence. This description is pretty spot […]

BRAEVES – Bitter Sea

Sometimes pop music gets a bad rap from music lovers because it’s considered mainstream and thus all pop artists are apparently the same. I’ll agree with the critics to some degree, a lot of pop tunes do sound very similar. LA/NY based quartet, BRAEVES, is redefining pop music with a bit of an indie twist.

Pet Clinic – Sick Witch

Is bedtime not the best time? That seems to be the case for the guys in Pet Clinic.

The Hunna – 100

hunnafeat

Sometimes after listening to a band/an album I’m left scratching my head. I’m left wondering what they were trying to accomplish in the last 12 or 13 tracks. This doesn’t mean the music wasn’t good or the vocals didn’t reach me. It just means that the musician may have some growing to do.

Highland Kites – Let Me Run EP

Highland Kites Let Me Run EP Cover

There is nothing new about putting our struggles to music. After all, the blues genre alone held this as its main purpose. When it comes to inspiration, the darkest times can often jump start a writer’s career. Happy moments can also break through Writer’s Block, but it doesn’t always reach the audience. Sure, everyone has […]
