LIVE REVIEW: Innings Festival

The best part about music festivals is the wide variety of bands you get to see in one spot. Innings Festival was no exception.

Between the sporting events and the great weather, it is truly a destination for anyone looking to enjoy the outdoors. Day one was a great introduction to the vibe the weekend would…

And their debut album, titled Ceiling Zero, is a blessing in every…

UNSIGNED SPOTLIGHT: Feed Us

Regardless of what you do for a living or where you’re at in life, it’s important to venture outside your comfort zone every so often. Especially in music, where opening your mind a bit more can lead to some incredible new experiences. Which is why when I pressed play on Feed Us‘ 2017 LP Delete Your Account, about 30 seconds in to the first song I realized 1) “This isn’t something I usually listen to but it’s incredible” and 2) “I absolutely want to spread the word about these guys.”…

Michigan alt-rockers Worn Spirit released a brand new EP last week titled I Could Disappear, and today the band is presenting the video for the track “Dissipate.” Worn Spirit’s Michael Poshedly had this to say about the video: “Dissipate” was filmed around Lansing.
