Our next stop on our tour of Bandcamp’s undiscovered artists takes us to Melbourne, Australia – the land down under. Specifically takes us to one Jesse Glass, a folk singer-songwriter whose music is extremely serine, dreamy, and picture-esque. With only one single out at the time of writing this, Jesse doesn’t have a large repertoire […]


Gates – “Persist in Delusion” We all have those bands that we look back on and wonder how in the world they didn’t take off.  I have quite a lengthy list of talented artists that I believe should be more popular than they are, but Gates has to be somewhere near the top of that […]


One of the very first things I remember loving was blink-182’s “The Rock Show”. Yeah, I was like five at the time, young as shit blah blah blah, but that put me right in the targets of blink’s music. I was the archetype of the demographic that found “The Rock Show” a refreshing change of […]


Let’s Eat Grandma – “Donnie Darko” In terms of underrated pop artists this decade, few are as talented as the duo of Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth – also known as Let’s Eat Grandma.  Perhaps that’s because they’re only 18 (17 at the time of this release) and their 2016 debut I, Gemini went largely […]


Sturgill Simpson – “Breakers Roar” Country music wouldn’t get such a bad rap if there were more Sturgill Simpsons in the world.  Simpson is everything that’s right with country music, and “Breakers Roar” is easily one of the most gorgeous songs that I’ve ever heard.  The strings here swell and ache in gorgeous entanglement, and […]


Carly Rae Jepsen – “Run Away With Me” For the longest time, I never understood the fascination surrounding Carly Rae Jepsen.  She writes cute, catchy 80’s influenced pop songs…and it’s not like she’s the first or even the best to do so.  Like any self-assured heterosexual man should, I jammed out to “Call Me Maybe” […]


Justin Timberlake – “Mirrors” The 20/20 Experience changed the way I view pop.  That may be a bit of a naive take, but it’s true based on my late introduction to modern music (I was that kid in high school who was obsessed with 70’s rock) and the fact that the album – especially Part […]

The Roots – “Stomp/Lighthouse” I have a special relationship with The Roots that I don’t have with very many artists, much less of the hip-hop variety.  They were the first “rap” that I ever listened to on my own.  Purchasing Game Theory from F.Y.E. when I was in high school is still fresh in my […]


Coheed and Cambria – “Key Entity Extraction I: Domino The Destitute” When I fell in love with Coheed and Cambria, it was a swoon over their heavier side: Claudio Sanchez’s bitter lyrics in “Welcome Home”, the epic waves of electric riffs, and the complex solo spanning the latter portion of the song.  That isn’t to […]


Quarter-Year Crisis: My Top Records of 2019 (so far) By: Brandon Nurick If you had asked me in early January whether I thought 2019 could compete with 2018 in terms of releasing an equal (or greater) quantity of obscenely killer music, I probably would’ve upturned my nose, scoffed, and replied with some kind of snarky […]


There Will Be Fireworks – “River” Singing loud enough to wake the dead, not enough now that you’ve left There’s a lot of factors that go into making great music, and too often I believe we focus on the wrong things.  Intricacy and technical prowess can only get you so far; the best bands in […]


Florence + The Machine – “Shake It Out” It’s always darkest before the dawn… Sometimes I’m convinced that Florence Welch doesn’t get enough credit.  Commercially, sure, she receives due monetary cash flow for superb singles like “Dog Days Are Over” and this very song – but as a real, true artist, I’m not sure that […]
