Don’t wanna be an american idiot? Then go see this musical

American Idiot was probably the best jukebox musical I have ever seen. How it would fare for a non avid green day fan like me? I’m no 100% sure but the music is stellar and everyone is very into it. Fair warning, this musical is VERY intense and very explicit. Not just lyrically, the drug … Continue reading

Review: The Heavy Dream – Under The Golden Sun 7″

FFO: The Beatles, Teenage Fanclub Genre Guess: Psychedelic roots rock infused indie pop.     The Heavy Dream indeed.

Record review: Bella Clava – Holy Crow (Grade: C)

Delivers on danceability, but lacks in passion. Holy Crow is a record that begs anyone and everyone to dance. A vintage tinged modern rock album that borrows just as much from mainstays Aerosmith and the Doors as it does  Them Crooked Vultures and Buckcherry. They have a solid groove they’re not afraid to show off, … Continue reading

Get up and ATOM and turn up the Volume!

There’s a new band hitting the scene and they are a whole whack of quirky electric fun. Atom & The Volumes mixes upbeat jams with a youthful, garage rock rawness. Experimenting with levels of feedback and reverb sets a backdrop of kinetic tension – making the music move. Bouncy guitar riffs and Borins’ bright vocals push … Continue reading
