A Fire With Friends Features Indie Rock 

ALBUM REVIEW: A Fire With Friends ‘Ghost House’

Scranton, PA indie rock band, A Fire With Friends, have released a new album entitled Ghost House. This is their third release since forming in 2008, and Ghost House is a pretty happy medium from the band’s previous two records. Every now and then, I do enjoy listening to music that isn’t full on rock, and I found A Fire With Friends to be a band that is easy to jam out to, while still maintaining a versatile sound that suits fans of various genres. In this day and age,…

The Gaslight Anthem Boston Calling Live Reviews News 

SHOW REVIEW: Boston Calling, September

In its second triumph, Boston Calling has returned to dazzle music fans with a lavish mix of indie rock, hip-hop, EDM, and everything in between in a two-day takeover of City Hall Plaza. As I enter the grounds, the setup is already worlds better than it was this past May. The process is quick, easy, and painless, with the added perk of a separate entrance for media and a setup that puts the two stages directly across from each other, allowing fans to easily migrate from one to the next without…

Album Review: Ivan & Alyosha ‘All The Times We Had’

It seems many bands coming out lately are trying to emulate what has been successful for chart toppers in their genre. Take for example, an increased interest in more “folk” music, i.e.: Mumford And Sons. Recently, the arguably neglected subgenre of folk has been producing more artists that are radio friendly. Ivan & Alyosha are striving to break out using this sound, and from what this album displays, they’ll have no problem doing it. What is so interesting about the album is that it does not need highly distorted guitars…

Issues “Black Diamonds” Album Review

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes and Black Diamonds being one of the most polarizing recordings to date in the scene. Issues, comprised of Michael Bohn and Tyler Carter (of Woe, Is Me fame), A.J. Rebollo, Ty “Scout” Acord and Case Snedecor, decided to go all out. Blending genres, especially in the post-hardcore spectrum, can often turn out confusing or just plain awful. While some argue the elements of hip hop, dubstep and pop vocals are out of place on the record, after taking time to listen again,…
