Track of the Day

If you keep up with sultry, emotive, French-Canadian singer songwriters, then surely you grabbed Big Boy, the debut EP from Montreal’s Charlotte Cardin, back in July when it came out.  I’m sure that adding her to our humble database just, like, slipped your mind — so busy, right!!  Such a busy time right now (and also since […]

Brand New: I Am a Nightmare Seven years.  That’s how long it has been since Brand New has released a full length LP, and diehard fans are starting to lose patience with the band’s constant game of cat and mouse, teasing us with a single here or there before completely falling off the face of the […]

  Ariana Grande: Into You Ariana Grande seems to be heating up just in time for summer.  Everything she’s done leading up to the May 20th release of her third full-length LP, Dangerous Woman, sounds sleeker, bolder, and sexier than anything she has released to this point.  It feels like a natural evolution for the pop […]

Radiohead: Burn The Witch It’s not just any band that can drop a single and immediately earn a shout out from Time Magazine. Radiohead is one of the largest cultural phenomena in modern music. They’re as much generational icons as they are musicians, and much in the same way that music used to be able […]

Friday, April 29, 2016 Artist: White Denim Track: “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)” This will certainly be the last time I post a song that is usually associated with legendary saxophonist and noted punchline Kenny Rogers (who didn’t write it – that would be country-pop songwriter/trivia question Mickey Newbury), but “Just Dropped […]

Monday, April 25th, 2016 Artist: Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties Track: “Green Like the G Train, Green Like Sea Foam” We’re still nearly a month away from the official release of Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties’ Bittersweet, and yet we’ve already received an adrenaline boost with the passionate bookends of the three-song EP. […]

Friday, April 22, 2016 Artist: Kevin Morby Track: “Dorothy” Kevin Morby’s latest solo offering, Singing Saw, has been described as “written simply and realized orchestrally.” This statement makes perfect sense within the context of the album – none of the songs feel overly complex in nature, but the delicate addition of instruments like horns and […]

Friday, April 15th, 2016 Artist: All Human (facebook) (twitter) (bandcamp) Track: “And So Peter Dances” I should be less surprised that All Human’s sophomore release has consistently been one of my favorite releases of 2016. Though Teenagers, You Don’t Have to Die! is my first exposure to the brainchild of Adam Fisher (Fear Before, Orbs) and Brian Ferrara (Trophy […]

Thursday, April 14th, 2016 Artist: The Moody Blues Track: “The Morning“ Whereas King Crimson seems to corner the market when it comes to being the pioneers of prog, there was actually a band that King Crimson’s producer, Tony Clark, worked with years before In The Court Of The Crimson King was even conceived.  The name of that band?  Well, […]

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 Artist: Direct Hit! Track: “Forced to Sleep” I don’t think very many bands could make something like the overuse of amphetamines seem so harmless and enjoyable, but then again not every band is Direct Hit! Following in the footsteps of 2013’s satirical Brainless God, the Milwaukee pop-punkers seem to be picking […]

Monday, April 11h, 2016 Artist: Frightened Rabbit Track: “Death Dream“ I remember when I first started getting into music and it felt like every song I heard was speaking directly to me.  It was a great era in my life because everything seemed to carry unprecedented weight, as if the artists were sitting down at a table with […]

Thursday, April 7, 2016 Artist: Bob Dylan Track: “Masters of War” I’m going to cut straight to the chase – Bob Dylan’s ‘Masters of War’ is one of the best songs he’s ever penned throughout his illustrious and weathered career. Not because of musical innovation, but because it contains perhaps the most profound and venomous […]

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 Artist: Saosin Track: “Racing Toward a Red Light Thirteen years after making a lasting imprint in Saosin’s sound, Anthony Green is returning as the band’s vocalist in all of his former glory on the upcoming Along the Shadow. The second single released from the album, appropriately titled ‘Racing Toward a Red […]

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016 Artist: Explosions In The Sky Track: “Landing Cliffs” Explosions In The Sky isn’t exactly a band that strikes joy into the heart of every post-rock aficionado anymore, and it has nothing to do with the band’s talent level.  After all, nobody questions that these guys can play, and some of the crescendos that they’ve crafted […]

Monday, April 4, 2016 Artist: Woods Track: “Sun City Creeps” Woods’ brand of indie folk always seems to find a comfortable sweet spot between eerie and inviting. With a haunting vocal performance from Jeremy Earl and seductive brass, ‘Sun City Creeps’ is every bit as enticing as it needs to be to kick off the […]
