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 […]

About the time of the festival where you realize how much quality sleep you haven’t gotten over the past 48 hours, how much carb-loading you’ve done in the name of trudging to that next stage, how badly you calculated your water/hard alcohol balance and consequently will spend the first half of the work week with […]

Loaded with artists I wanted to see but cursed by conflicts, Saturday was a bit of a disappointment. The breeze that made Friday such a blessing in disguise (no dust storm!) fell away to a typically scorching April sun in the desert. My first stop was no stage but a hefty order of crab fries […]

It was only appropriate that Axl Rose lasted all of one night of Guns N’ Roses’ ballyhooed reunion tour before breaking his foot, resulting in Rose taking a cue from a less fatter veteran in Dave Grohl and performing much of the band’s headlining Saturday set at Coachella in a throne. After all, a solid […]

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, […]

Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of April 15, 2016. Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff or contributors.

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 […]

Talking with Mechina’s Joe Tiberi is always entertaining, because not only are interviews with him basically late night brodowns, but there are no time constraints, no PR people or next interviewers interfering. Time is never of utmost importance with Joe, which is suitable for a guy whose band is still woving together a colossal space […]

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 […]
