Track of the Day

  Carcass: “Heartwork” ———————————————————————————————— When Heartwork was released in 1993, it ushered in a new sound that would eventually become known as melodic death metal. At the time, though, people didn’t know what to think of it and they certainly didn’t know how to classify it —  they only knew they liked it. Heartwork featured a collection of […]

There’s been a lot already said about the latest Taylor Swift single from critics and fans, and not a lot of it has to do with the actual music.  There’s been drama expounded upon and personality quirks analyzed, but I unfortunately keep as many tabs on celebrity feuds and lifestyle happenings as I do my […]

It’s not like we needed any additional reasons to crown Ella as the queen of pop.  At just 20 years old, she’s stolen that crown from Ariana who stole it from Carle Rae who stole it from Taylor.  Well, that’s if you ask me. But personal and irrelevant opinions aside about who owns pop (when it’s […]

Public Enemy… what can be said about them that shouldn’t already be known? They’re one of the most influential Hip Hop artists of the 80’s and early 90’s, due in large part to being one of the first Hip Hop groups to really focus on politics, and the plight of African Americans in general. Their […]

What has 9 arms and sucks? Def Leppard… To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Def Leppard’s break out release Hysteria, and to try to bring back “Throwback Thursday” here is ‘Gods of War’ — easily the best song on the album. Purchase the 30th anniversary release of Hysteria here. Hysteria releases 4 August 2017 through Mercury Records. ——————————————————————————————————

Euphoria.  That’s the word that keeps coming to mind with each new song released in advance of Broken Social Scene’s comeback record Hug of Thunder, set to drop on July 7th.  We heard it on “Halfway Home”, which sounded like a “we are back” statement with layered vocals in the chorus and its twin guitar assault. […]

Artist: Depeche Mode // Release Date: 2/3/2017 Disclaimer: I’m no Depeche Mode expert.  My experience with them is pretty much limited to the famed Violator, as well as a few singles here and there.  That didn’t stop the band’s latest single, “Where’s The Revolution”, from capturing my interest immediately though.  It’s tough not to notice when […]

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 […]
