REVIEW: Travis Hayes – ‘Love Songs’ EP

Love songs are everywhere. I’m pretty convinced we hear them for the entire month of February, and they’re usually overdone.

Featuring the vocals of Emily Whitehurst, the small EP packs an unbelievable punch with acoustics that will tug at each individual heartstring. Please follow and like us:

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: 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…
