REVIEW: Kyle Cox “The Plan, The Mess”

“I Ain’t Been Lonely, Until I Met You” kicks off Kyle Cox’s The Plan, The Mess, and is, quite admittedly, a perfect love song. The track tells the story of someone who has been stone-hearted and not needed anybody else until they meet this one person that really brings everything into perspective. With folksy, country edge, this will charm the socks off of anyone that listens to it (see also “Never Looking Back”). Guaranteed. Gentlemen, please take notes: this is what your girlfriend wants to hear. If you’re looking for…

Five Songs For Romantics

People think that all love songs have to be sappy, syrupy messes. And while there is something to be said for those hearts-and-flowers-type songs, they don’t all have to be that way. People need to remember that there are many different types of love, so why should there only be one type of love song? The ones in this list vary in style, but all have love at their core…in one way or another. Check out the list after the jump. Please follow and like us:

ALBUM REVIEW: Bad News Bears ‘Battle Scars’

Human emotions are strange. They fluctuate, they cause a million and one responses, and are also ridiculously hard to translate. However, Bad News Bears new album Battle Scars is a prime example of how real people and emotions can be brought to life through music. Immediately jumping into it, Bad News Bears present “Hold,” which is a summer-track to its core. Add to it the creative choice of words that make up each line, and Mike Sacchetti came up with the recipe for something wonderful. There is something about it…

ALBUM REVIEW: Twin Radio ‘The Coast of Indigo’

Music can convey so many emotions in so many different ways. People can express feelings of pure love with something so heavy, or so seemingly opposite of the typical ballad, and it will still sound like something beautiful. Twin Radio have fine-tuned this ability on their new LP The Coast of Indigo. Please follow and like us:

ALBUM REVIEW: Matthew Vincent (The American Scene) & Alexander Correia ( The Tower & The Fool) Split

I admit to openly liking split EPs, when I know a lot of people don’t. One listen to the Matthew Vincent and Alexander Correia split, and I was hooked, and I know any anti-split listeners will fall madly in love as well. The split begins perfectly with Matthew Vincent’s “Wicked Thirst,” a beautiful acoustic track that will immediately captivate listeners. Each line is filled with stunning emotional depth. It’s a well-written piece, painted with lyrics resembling poetry, and music that is nothing short of fantastic. Please follow and like us:

ALBUM REVIEW: Golden Youth ‘Quiet Frame; Wild Light’

We all know that feeling when a movie starts, as the introductory music begins and the title credits scroll along the screen; it’s almost a nervous feeling: you want the movie to be great, and you’re listening to see if the music will give any indication. From beginning to end, Golden Youth give you that feeling. If their music were featured on the trailer of a film, you’d want to see it. If it were in the movie, you’d know during the opening credits that it was going to be…

ALBUM REVIEW: Her Bright Skies “Rivals”

It is rare to find a band that can truly surprise you. However, Her Bright Skies have managed to, seemingly out of nowhere, swoop in and change the game. Their new album, Rivals, is a wonderful display of artistry, opening on a particularly strong note, “Working Class Punx.” “Bonnie & Clyde (The Revolution)” is an amazing song, documenting the band’s decision to make music their full-time gig and their rise to fame, also with an element of a love-song. This is definitely one of my favorite tracks on the album….

It Boys! ‘Introduction’ Album Review

If one thing is for certain, it’s that good pop albums are filled with songs that are irresistibly catchy, with choruses that have everyone singing along as loud as they can, for reasons they aren’t entirely certain of. Currently, that album is Introduction, the new album from It Boys!. “Start The Party” sets off the album perfectly, as well as setting the mood for the remainder of it. With tongue-in-cheek lyrics, the song is hard to resist, despite your best attempts, especially with the guest vocals of Breathe Carolina’s David…
