WATCH : Percival Elliot “Forever”

Formed by the belief that true friends can create something meaningful, Olly Hite and Samuel Carter-Brazier united to grace audiences with their poignant lyricism and neo-nostalgic melodies with the unique band,  Percival Elliot. Named after Hite’s great-grandfather, Percival Elliott, born in 1883 was an inventor who created one of the first ice-cream emporiums in Brighton. After discovering a dusty box of trinkets in the back of Hite’s family attic, the untouched time capsule unveiled Elliott’s mysterious inventions, engraved ice-cream paraphernalia, haunting photographs and time-honored war medals. The imagination began to whirl…

A Fire With Friends Features Indie Rock 

ALBUM REVIEW: A Fire With Friends ‘Ghost House’

Scranton, PA indie rock band, A Fire With Friends, have released a new album entitled Ghost House. This is their third release since forming in 2008, and Ghost House is a pretty happy medium from the band’s previous two records. Every now and then, I do enjoy listening to music that isn’t full on rock, and I found A Fire With Friends to be a band that is easy to jam out to, while still maintaining a versatile sound that suits fans of various genres. In this day and age,…

GUEST BLOG: Frank McGinnis Of Time Travels On Modesty And Confidence

I was standing outside of a music venue in Albany, NY with my cousin Richie. I was about to play a solo set of original songs and we were talking about songwriting. At some point, he asked me something along the lines of “how do you know when you’re good?” Similar questions arise on a frequent basis when discussing my music. The most common one occurs when a stranger or new acquaintance learns that I am a singer/songwriter and I have a band (called Time Travels). They simply ask “are…

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: Radio Rescue ‘The Soundtrack To Second Place’

Pop-punk is one of my favorite genres. It’s fun and it’s got an edge. It’s everything I love about music. There’s melody, there’s those sweet songs that entrance you, there’s the songs that fill you with energy, and there’s the moments that leave you grinning a month later. Please follow and like us:

Album Review: Uh-Huh Baby Yeah! ‘Trash Talk’

The true battle in a conflict isn’t the conflict itself, but how you react to it. Some people overcompensate with optimism, some go back to the way they were (if not a bit wiser), and others become bitter. However, I believe that it’s what you do with those emotions that counts. Uh-huh Baby Yeah! have taken all their feelings and made something out of them. Please follow and like us:

ALBUM REVIEW: Terrible Feelings ‘Blank Heads’

Terrible Feelings’ debut EP titled Blank Heads is a pseudo-grunge-punk delve into awesomely melodic and pop infused indie tracks that will keep listeners hitting repeat over and over again. From the get go, the drums pound into a solid beat leading the way for a lead guitar riff reminiscent of the early days of The Offspring. Speaking of such things the female lead has a primal voice, not afraid to let it get wild. All the while keeping a tight reign on the intended moods with big and broad choruses that sink…

Feldspar “The Flat and Paper Sky Vol II” Album Review

It takes a lot of balls to have the first song on your EP void of instruments.  “The Flat and Paper Sky” that opens Feldspar’s The Flat and Paper Sky Vol II features just multi-tracked harmonies that wouldn’t feel out of place on a Fleet Foxes album.   It’s a bold move that works, in part because the voices sound angelic. It’s the voice that carries Feldspar.  On the next track “Bright Blue Eyes”, the band amps it up a bit with some bluesy and reverbed guitar.  It’s equal parts Ten-era…
