Albums

Locust | You'll Be Safe Forever | Review

For those out of the loop (myself included, prior to a brush-up via press release and some idle internet perusing), Locust originally left its mark in the nineties as the ambient solo venture of London's Mark Van Hoen.

Sarah Petrella | 'Summer' | Review

One can say that Sarah Petrella’s path to the release of her debut EP started from the moment she was born. She wrote her first song before the age of 10, and went on to immerse herself in musical theatre. Now, Sarah brings her lifelong passion for songwriting to the world via a three song EP, titled Summer.

Making Movies: A La Deriva | New Music Review

Good Panamanian acid-jazz-fusion by way of Kansas City can be hard to come by these days. Well, at least there’s Making Movies.

On the whole, the prog-Latino quartet’s self-released second album, A La Deriva, is strange South American psychedelia; in moments, it’s overwhelming or simple, radical or routine. Consistent? No. But there’s something distinctive enough about the record to warrant a listen.

decker. | 'Slider' | Review

A near-fatal car accident would set most bands back months, maybe years. Arizona-based trio decker. pulled through the experience and released their fourth album just six months later. The gritty folk-rock band is led by Brandon Decker, whose first album, Long Days, debuted in 2009. Four albums in four years may seem like a lot, but Decker has been piling up praise with every new release.

Sterling Witt | 'Sterling Loves You' | Review

I always listen to the opening track extremely carefully. It’s the opening track the band or artists has selected to hit your ears first and foremost. The opening track "Perfect Girl” sets the stage rather well for this CD. It was a great intro piece that stuck in my head and had me eager for what was ahead.

E.G. Holmes | 'Wonderful You' | Review

Pianist, Songwriter E.G. Holmes and vocalist David Vanden Enden recently came together for a musical collaboration entitled “Wonderful You”. Want to charm your way into someone's heart and can't figure out how to do it?? Let E.G. Holmes and David Vanden Enden do it for you!! This latest release will work magic for you! What better way to tell someone how you feel then with the gift of music!!

Sarah Kervin | Passing Through | Review

Passing Through is one unique release that certainly doesn’t disappoint. This is one artist that brings to the table effective songwriting via a highly subjective musical delivery. This meshed with a one in a million Modern Jazz sound and effective visuals and vocals makes for a very effective combination.

Hiding From Andy | 'You Can Go Home Tomorrow' | Review

Who doesn’t appreciate a great Christmas song?

A well-crafted Christmas song is akin to a present to the world from the artist who created it. I’m not referring to the type of warmed over, watered down holiday schmaltz that artists rush into the studio to re-record to cash in on their celebrity (Especially now that we can’t get through one holiday without dealing with another; Please people, my turkey is still digesting).

Lotus | Build | Review

For the past decade, electronic rock group Lotus has been building a loyal fan base with their ever-changing blend of jam, funk, jazz, and recently more hip-hop style sounds.

Stages of Sleep | Carousel | Review

I always listen to the opening track extremely carefully. It’s the opening track the artist has selected to hit your ears first and foremost. The opening track "Toys” sets the stage rather well for a melancholy CD like this. It was a passionate intro piece that stuck in my head and had me eager for what lied ahead. All in all the whole CD is brilliantly delivered with a richly woven Alternative-Rock Gypsy Jazz-textures with songs that go far deeper than the next independent artist.
