ALBUM REVIEW : 18th & Addison – ‘Makeshift Monster’

With humble beginnings, forming in 2013/2014, the New Jersey acoustic duo Tom Kunzman and Kait DiBenedetto of alternative rock band 18th & Addison set their sights to bring something new and unique to the ever growing music industry.

ALBUM REVIEW: Chrysalis ‘Reminder’

“I will be there through the darkest of your days” is one of those dreamy one-liners that every girl hopes a man (or woman) will coo to her, gripping an acoustic guitar on the deck of a balcony or fireside in a haughty ski resort. Yet it’s the hook in metal band Chrysalis song “Angel,” a warped banger masquerading as a swoonsome confession of unconditional love. Metal isn’t usually associated with such romantic furor, but that’s where the California hardcore outfit swoop in with Reminder, their 11-track  full-length album. The record, released…

ALBUM REVIEW: One Less Reason, ‘The Memories Uninvited’

After 13 years, One Less Reason has established themselves in the business of the 2000s-era rock ‘n’ roll. Memphis-born and fad-tested, the band has maintained their steadfast sound over the course of seven albums – for better or for worse. Their latest release, The Memories Uninvited, is no exception, stringing together 11 songs of unbridled and revved-up band synergy. The Memories Uninvited comes with a sting of nostalgia. The phrase triggers a different part of the unconscious in every listener, stirring up thoughts and memories once buried deep beyond the ability…

ALBUM REVIEW: At The Heart Of It ‘you couldn’t stay’

Over a handful of bands claim to sound like La Dispute or Touché Amore. The thing is, though, none of them really do. Once in a blue moon, a band will release material that actually does sound like these bands, and they almost always exceed our expectations. And, guess what? Today is that day. New Hampshire post-hardcore band, At the Heart of it, bear a striking resemblance to these lucrative, almost unclassifiable bands. The group’s latest EP, you couldn’t stay, is an emotional punch to the gut with a unique…
