Mackin Carroll Drops New EP ‘Damascus’

There may not be any shortage of acoustic folk rock singer-songwriters out there, but the good news is that Los Angeles based Mackin Carroll isn’t just your run of the mill artist. Would it be cliche of me to say that something about his twangy brand of folk stands out? Or that his goofy personality, played out thoroughly in the video for “Sleepwalking”, sets him apart from the pack? Maybe, but it would also be true.  Please follow and like us:

STREAM: Mumford & Sons New Song “The Wolf”

Mumford & Sons have released a new song titled “The Wolf.” The track is off the band’s third studio album,Wilder Mind, which is set to release on May 4 via Glassnote Records. Check out the stream below the jump. The song includes everything that is familiar of Mumford & Sons, but kicked up a notch.

GUEST BLOG: Confessions Of A Lesbian Drummer On Tour

When Infectious Magazine asked me to write a guest blog about being a lesbian drummer on tour, I realized I was a lesbian drummer on tour. I never really thought about my identity in such clear-cut terms, I just kind of…existed. I am Liliana, sometimes Lil or, my personal favorite, Lilisagna. I play drums with too many bands (City In Light, PFL, Hop On Hold Tight) and still decided to join my musical friend, Diana DeMuth, on tour. During shows, my extreme extroversion translates to perpetual pigeon dancing and word-heaving…

GUEST BLOG: Limitations Expanding Creative Possibilities

In the digital age of recording and editing, exciting possibilities have opened up that would have been almost impossible to achieve before. These options have lent themselves to new and exciting ways of creating music. When recording the drums for this record, I had issues capturing the kit as expansively as I wanted because I was limited to working with two channels in a room not optimal for recording. After many attempts and no success, I decided my only option was to think about the drums differently, which ultimately led…
