In truth, I am still growing up and have a lot of learning to do. However, I can tell you what songs and artists have influenced me the most. In case you were too lazy to scroll to the bottom of this page, my name is Austin Heath and I am an 18-year-old senior in high school….

ALBUM REVIEW: Ray & Remora ‘1994’

It’s been twenty years since the nineties. It was a time before iPods, iPads, and iPhones. A time before Y2K, before the rise of indie, and before music got intimate with technology. Twenty years ago, musical trends were defined by a raw, alternative rock sound. Ray & Remora kindled this sound. On 1994, Ray & Remora played around with music from 1994 and created their debut album — a composition of songs from twenty years ago, vocals that are timeless, and instrumentals that are both distorted and distinctive.

ALBUM REVIEW: Desyre ‘Glamtron’

Glam Rock and the hard rock sounds of the 1980s typically referred to as “Hair Metal” have found a revival in the modern music scene starting in the mid-2000s and expanding into today’s music world.  One of the latest releases of these throw back sounds is Finland’s Desyre with their new album, appropriately titled Glamtron. Glamtron is a fun mix of synthesizers, djent riffs, and  singer, Mazi Bee, channeling Axl Rose without quite reaching that famous vocal range.  Overall the album has quality engineering work, with some nifty fade outs…
