LIVE REVIEW: TesseracT, Plini, Astronoid

If you ever want to see a diverse group of music fans all together, go to a TesseracT concert. From tweens to parents to couples to your stereotypical metal-head, the crowd was as unique as the sound coming off the stage. Astronoid opened up with heavy hitting drums, sick bass lines, and a trio of guitars. This five piece group certainly have a unique sound that they have coined as “Dream Trash”, which after hearing them play, I don’t disagree. Next up was Plini. Plini is a progressive rock artist…

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I’VE LEARNED: The Music Is Only Half Real

Alright, you’ve read the Buzzfeed style title and have thus been sucked in by my ruse. You’re here, why not stay for a bit, I’ve only been given 500 words so you won’t waste too much time. The most important thing I’ve learned is actually something I came to terms with far too late in my ‘career’ and as such I bring it to you, here, hopefully early doors, so you can interact with it in any way you see fit. Perhaps a lot of it will sound like the…

MUSIC CITIES: Orlando

They call Orlando “The City Beautiful” and that phrase doesn’t stop short of the music scene. I couldn’t think of a better place for our band to call home. Orlando has been so good to us. The melting pot of talent, local support, and the overall sense of community has helped shaped our band in ways that we could never imagine. After touring all over the United States, we’re confident in saying that our scene is one of the strongest in the country. Please follow and like us:

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. This was the first year for this festival in Tempe, Arizona and it could not have been more perfect. For those that have never been to Arizona in March, it is baseball fan heaven. 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…

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…
