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…

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:

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…
