Fast and Loose: The Rich Hands Becoming Gods

Fast and Loose: The Rich Hands Becoming Gods

Fast and Loose The Rich Hands Becoming Gods By Jay Armstrong   Rock n Roll will never die, anyone who tells you it has or soon will is simply growing older, putting on the lame armor of burning out adulthood while slinking off to be forgotten in their anonymous lives, or they are the kind...

Betrayers: 12 Songs To Haunt You

BETRAYERS 12 Songs To Haunt You Review By Jay Armstrong Three years….three years, what a lifetime lays between then and now in this live fast die young freewheelin’ time we lucky few have found ourselves tried and shaped by.

The Reputations: Begging For More

The Reputations: Begging For More

The Reputations: Begging For More By Jay Armstrong With the psych ship sinking, as the old dogs of sleeze and sweat continue fading off into the sunset, while most nights get spent with our eyes rolling at yet another band to show up sadly trying to align themselves with the 90’s soulless resurgence of disaffected...

Standing in the Gap: The Disquiet Vol. 1 Compilation

“In violent times, you shouldn’t have to sell your soul” ~ Tears for Fears (Ian Stanley/Ronald Orzabal) “ Shout”, Songs from the Big Chair 1985   This quote from 1985 is rather poignant in today’s political climate.

Drunk Mums: Promise, Potential, Substance

Drunk Mums Promise, Potential, Substance By Jay Armstrong   Albeit ideal, with how syrupy their self-titled album was in 2012 there seemed only two directions Drunk Mums could go; off to the forgotten edges of rock n roll existence, rubbing shoulders with the likes of bands such as Milk N Cookies who got it right...

G.L.O.S.S. and the Importance of Politics In Music

We can never change the atrocities, we can only hope that through them we may find ways to once more shape our compassion and sadness into beautiful reflections of art worthy enough to stand as beacons in time marking the eternal place where our hearts bore the burden of complete sadness or that our anger...

Review: Sidewave’s Glass Giant Is a Welcoming Homage to 90’s Space-Rock

  Just when you think 90’s bands like Hum and Stone Temple Pilots have lost their stronghold in this day and age, think again. Sidewave, stemming from high-school friendships and stumbled across Craigslist ads, blends experimental textures, heavy percussion with melodic guitar, and the result is a phenomenal throwback to 90’s space-rock while still maintaining...
Calling Out - EZTV

Calling Out – EZTV

  Here we have the number one album of summer. Not THE summer… just summer. If a single season can have a soundtrack, this is it.   Color me impressed as hell with this debut by Brooklyn trio EZTV. Who do I hear behind this band? I find Dire Straits in their riffs. Seriously, these...
