INTERVIEW: Black Bottom Lighters

Every once in a while, you find a hidden gem in your hometown. This hidden gem for me is Black Bottom Lighters. The six piece reggae rock group, hailing from Glendale, Arizona, considers themselves to be “desert reggae”. What that is exactly, I do not know. What I do know is that I’ve had their songs stuck in my head since their set at the McDowell Mountain Music Festival. With their captivating lyricists and wicked drum fills, Black Bottom Lighters are a band that the world needs to look out…

STREAM: Violent Femmes’ New Single “Love Love Love Love Love”

15 Years: That’s how long Violent Femmes fans have been waiting for new material. This week the fans got what they wanted when the band released a new single titled “Love Love Love Love Love” on Soundcloud. The song strays from their acoustic-punk origins, with a slower paced Burbon Street-esque folk-blues style, yet it still carries the same amount of passion that they’ve had for 35 years, with Gordon Gano’s nasaly/angsty vocals and Brian Ritchie’s strong and distinct bass-lines. The song is the lead single off of their new EP, which…

ALBUM REVIEW: Zach E. West ’28 Years Later’

I write with a bit of sadness that I’m reviewing 28 Years Later, quite possibly the final album Zach E. West has created. For almost two years he has worked on this album, and I must say it is a work of art that must have paid off for him. He has a talent for expressing himself in ways that we all can understand and resonate with – not to mention he continues producing music that is absolutely mind-blowing to the average listener. I say this because, it’s not every…
