ALBUM REVIEW: New Medicine ‘Breaking the Model’

There are three things that put New Medicine near the top of my “new music I absolutely love” list. Number one: The theme behind their newest album Breaking the Model. The name says it all, and anyone who knows me will know that I’m all about stickin’ it to society. So far New Medicine is off to a good start in my book. Number two: This alternative rock quartet is from Minneapolis. It’s not that I feel obligated to like every band from good ol’ Minnesota, but when the band…

ALBUM REVIEW: Nervous ‘Decode’

A great many talented individuals have come from of Boston throughout history — New Kids on the Block, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (and his brother Casey, of course), Aerosmith, Dropkick Murphys, Captain America himself (Chris Evans), Godsmack… the list goes on and on! Needless to say, when I listened to the debut album Decode from Boston-based band Nervous, my expectations were possibly a little higher than they should have been. I wasn’t entirely disappointed. The 9-track Decode is more or less an intriguing one. With vocals that, at times,…

ALBUM REVIEW: Frnkiero andthe Cellabration ‘Stomachaches’

In the days of yesteryear — also known as the early 2000s — a little band called My Chemical Romance owned the alt rock scene. Or at least shared the spotlight with other marvelous bands at the top of their game in the decade. With brothers Gerard and Mikey Way being the most well known of the various lineups for the band throughout the years, a guitarist and vocalist by the name of Frank Iero would be the third peg of the trio of guys that would make up the…

ALBUM REVIEW: Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas ‘Secret Evil’

As a self-proclaimed music critic, I am always looking for (or more accurately, listening for) bands with unique tones that pique my interest. It is definitely part of the reason why my music choices and overall taste are so eclectic. And when I find a band that encompasses a variety of sounds at once? Well that is just a bonus. Case in point: Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas. This quartet from Detroit incorporates a jumble of sounds that makes for an incredibly fun and exciting listen on their debut album,…

BOOK REVIEW: ‘High Notes: A Rock Memoir’ By Richard Loren With Stephen Abney

When people consider the music industry, many probably think of it simply as the musicians themselves, combined with a few managers and groupies. Of course, we at Infectious Magazine know better. We know, and often talk with, many of the vast individuals that make the music world turn. From the managers and road crew all the way to the entertainment journalists and consumers – we all play a crucial role. Richard Loren was a well-known man in the early days of rock and roll. Having worked with various musical artists…

ALBUM REVIEW: Fritz Montana ‘Scaredy Cat’

At first listen, vocals from singer David Marshall will sound freakishly like Jack White and the band’s sound like that of the White Stripes (a compliment by all means, my friends). But with their own brand of blues and other combinations of indie sounds, Fritz Montana’s newest album Scaredy Cat not only mixes Jack White with a bit of Taking Back Sunday, (which let me tell you is actually a fantastic combination) but also brings forth an incredible sound that makes for an excellent listening experience. Having formed in early…

ALBUM REVIEW: Bleachers ‘Strange Desire’

I first heard of indie pop band Bleachers – created by Jack Antonoff (best known as lead guitarist of fun.) and comprised of Antonoff with his pre-fun. band Steel Train – through a lovely little app called Spotify. Thanks to an advertisement for Bleachers’ incredibly catchy hit single, “I Wanna Get Better,” the song became an instant personal favorite shortly after clicking on the ad. Go give it a listen and try to tell me the same didn’t happen for you. In fact, listen to the whole album, which is…

ALBUM REVIEW: The Downtown Fiction ‘Losers & Kings’

A fantastic combination of pop and rock, Virginian band The Downtown Fiction is releasing their second full-length album June 17th, titled Losers & Kings,with their new label Fearless Records. This album is chock full of great energy and fun songs that are often anthem-like in nature. The mix of excellent beats and the semi-boyish voice of lead singer Cameron Leahy (which sounds a lot better than you think), Losers & Kings is incredibly enjoyable and definitely a mood booster if you ever needed one. Please follow and like us:

ALBUM REVIEW: Ghost Town ‘The After Party’

High energy and a haunting theme is what you’ll find from electronic rock band Ghost Town’s new album, The After Party, out June 17th. Called an “audio and visual movement ahead of its time” on their Facebook page, as well as said to “[cater] to the young generation of today while keeping true to the underground scene they come from,” The After Party was definitely an interesting album as a first time Ghost Town listener. From what people would call a sort of “emo” sound that the band encompasses, to…

ALBUM REVIEW: Hannah Thiem ‘Brym’

Those of you that are regular readers of Infectious Magazine know that our reviews often entail the various types of rock, metal, punk, indie, and as a more recent venture, we’ve added pop to our lineup. But every so often (and I usually jump on these as quickly as possible), we have the pleasure to review music that doesn’t really fit into any one of those genres. Hannah Thiem and her newest album, Brym is amongst the latter. Brym (pronounced “Breem”) is Thiem’s first in her solo career; she had…
