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…

With the release of the Bright Eyes frontman’s new solo album, I took the opportunity to finally grace my ears with the magnificent voice of Conor Oberst. And as I expected, I was not disappointed…

ALBUM REVIEW: Morning Parade ‘Pure Adulterated Joy’

There’s something about Steve Sparrow’s voice (and unique name too) that just sucks you in. Do yourself a favor: right now, before you even read the rest of my review for Morning Parade’s new album, Pure Adulterated Joy – the band of which Sparrow is lead vocalist for – go find a stream of a single off this album (or even a previous album) and just listen to it. Then try to tell me I’m wrong. Pure Adulterated Joy is full of energy through and through, even amidst the handful…
