ALBUM REVIEW: Rhino House Band ‘Golden Summer’

I love a good indie EP. I love them even more when they are “summer themed.” Rhino House Band’s debut EP, Golden Summer, had me bouncing with anticipation. “Little Things” is a wonderfully catchy, dare I say, summer-esque, anthem for the legions of people whose summers resemble a clever indie film; it embraces the theme of growing up and getting on with your life. The visuals the song puts in your mind are unbelievable. From the well-executed, “Oooh oooh ooh”s throughout the track to the steady beats, it’s hard to…

BAND OF THE MONTH: On Being Human

So lately there’s been this emerging genre of video game rock. And depending on who you are, and where your interests lie, that could either sound really cool, or really terrible. But as someone whose video game interest extends only as far as the nostalgia of playing Mario Party, Kirby, and Pit Fall back in the day, I have to say that I’m pretty intrigued by the whole thing. Especially by California based adventure rock/video game rock band, On Being Human—who just so happen to be our band of the…

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Reverend Mothers ‘Scorched Earth, Part 1: The Rover’

Back in September we reviewed Reverend Mothers’ show with Yellabird in Boston, and to be honest, we kind of raved about them. Back then, we said their live performance elicited images of the late CBGBs, beer stained floors in your favorite punk rock dive, and graffiti filled walls calling out your youth. A feeling of nostalgia for an age that I’d never personally been a part of. When a band can have that kind of impact, you don’t just forget about them. Today, we’re ecstatic to bring you the premiere of…

The Recent Reunion Resurgence & Our Nostalgia Obsession

Nostalgia is strange, and in the current hip culture of 2014 it’s even more bizarre than it used to be.  Now I don’t mean to be nostalgic about nostalgia, but there used to be a time when nostalgic things that we joyously reminisced about stayed in the past, exactly where we remembered them just as we remembered them; all perfect and cleaned up by years of misremembering—and most importantly, in the past.  But recently, we seem to have this fascination with all things ‘90s or vintage and relating to our…

ALBUM REVIEW: Avalon Landing ‘Reside’

The first word that comes to mind when I finish listening to Avalon Landing’s new album, Reside is emotional simplicity. There is nothing unexpected,  but it is calming, mellow, even. It is the kind of music you put on when you need get homework done, or when you need a day to relax on the couch. While listening to the album, I can honestly say I never disliked any of the songs—but I didn’t fall in love with any of them either. I have said in other reviews that great music gives you…

ALBUM REVIEW: Twice My Size ‘Chasing Skylines’

Twice My Size’s new EP Chasing Skylines is nostalgia to me. It’s long drives with my earbuds in and the punk turned way up. It’s stumbling across that Blink-182 album for the first time, and learning how to sing “Na Na Na” with the same accent Tom Delonge does. It’s playing music with friends and pulling faces while we sing to each other. In other words, this EP just makes me happy. It’s entrancing and charming, and I honestly just want to go watch it performed live.  Please follow and…

Album Review: Valaska ‘Natural Habitat’

I am not one to discriminate based on genre. I will happily listen to anything. However, anyone that knows me can tell you, I have a bit of a soft spot for pop-punk and folk (though not necessarily together). Valaska is no exception to this. With the album Natural Habitat, I have found a new album that I like to play on repeat as I draw. Please follow and like us:
