UNSIGNED SPOTLIGHT: Laska

Blending a multitude of genres into your music can be either a blessing or a curse. Sometimes the end result is a mess with no identity, or the band isn’t quite comfortable with any one sound, or the music comes out great but can have difficulty reaching new fans. For Minnesota/Wisconsin-based sextet Laska, however, their mix of folk rock, alt-rock, Americana and soul is the kind of sound some artists strive for a decade or more to create. And their debut album, titled Ceiling Zero, is a blessing in every…

UNSIGNED SPOTLIGHT: Feed Us

Regardless of what you do for a living or where you’re at in life, it’s important to venture outside your comfort zone every so often. Especially in music, where opening your mind a bit more can lead to some incredible new experiences. Which is why when I pressed play on Feed Us‘ 2017 LP Delete Your Account, about 30 seconds in to the first song I realized 1) “This isn’t something I usually listen to but it’s incredible” and 2) “I absolutely want to spread the word about these guys.”…

ALBUM REVIEW : Black Veil Brides “Vale”

The leather-clad heavy rockers of Black Veil Brides are back with their fifth full-length album Vale released on January 12, 2018. With Vale being one the first few rock records of 2018, I was curious to see what this addition added to the already expansive discography of BVB, and what it would bring to the rock genre in the new year. On the first listen, Vale plays out as a combination of 2013’s Wretched & Divine and Andy Biersack’s solo record The Shadow Side, as musically the albums share a lot of similarities and themes. From showing…

WATCH : Percival Elliot “Forever”

Formed by the belief that true friends can create something meaningful, Olly Hite and Samuel Carter-Brazier united to grace audiences with their poignant lyricism and neo-nostalgic melodies with the unique band,  Percival Elliot. Named after Hite’s great-grandfather, Percival Elliott, born in 1883 was an inventor who created one of the first ice-cream emporiums in Brighton. After discovering a dusty box of trinkets in the back of Hite’s family attic, the untouched time capsule unveiled Elliott’s mysterious inventions, engraved ice-cream paraphernalia, haunting photographs and time-honored war medals. The imagination began to whirl…
