Delta Spirit

Now that fans have had the chance to soak in Delta Spirit’s sophomore LP, History From Below, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kelly Winrich relishes performing a barrage of live tracks on the band’s national tour. Hot off the presses, Delta Spirit’s forthcoming EP, Waits Room, was recorded in an old chicken coup to harness a vibe of honest, cla

WhiteWater Ramble | All Night Drive | Review

Since the early 90s, Colorado has been the spring board for the burgeoning "jamgrass" revolution.  The popularity of such acts as Leftover Salmon, String Cheese Incident, and Yonder Mountain String Band has led

The Heavy Pets | 'Heavy Pets' | Review

Cut from the same cloth as Animal Liberation Orchestra, G-Love and the Special Sauce, or the Dave Matthews Band comes a jam-pop band for the 21st century known as The Heavy Pets.  This Florida-based collective has been touring like mad since their inception five years ago, and have finally delivered their first full-length studio album.  The result is a sturdy, uplifting project that could cement the Heavy Pets as the next band to break the mold and enter the mainstream.

Keller Williams | thief | Review

Later this month, the enigmatic Keller Williams will release his 756th album. Okay, that number may be off by a few.

Garaj Mahal's Discovery | Out of the Garaj, Into The Open..

“This is just the beginning to my journey with this instrument” –Fareed Haque

Have you felt patronized by music lately?  Do the simple pop schemes disappoint you? Are you looking for something complex and intricate?  Then this is the album for you.  This is musician’s music.  The 12 set track listing is similar to satellite radio, changing frequencies and styles from track to track.  By the third track, “Never Give Up”, Garaj can hush the crowd with the haughty hues and hot-headed harmonies.

Apoc | Boredom Springs Anew | Review

The release of Boredom Springs Anew from Apoc comes just as the flowers bloom. This hip hop act cannot seem to stay put to any single location. Apoc releases tendrils to each place he blooms; he is more like a vine than any flower or houseplant.  When I first met we were both observing the late night bar scene back home in Chicago.  We got to talking after finding out that we both had a passion for writing.  This was over 10 years ago. Look at him now!  This vine has thrived, revived and Sprung Anew!

The Contribution | 'Which Way World' | Review

Born out of the friendly and wooded confines of a Hornings Hideout gathering in 2005, comes a jamband supergroup of sorts called The Contribution.  The project fronted by Tim Carbone (fiddle/vocals) of Railroad Earth brings together seasoned veterans Jeff Miller (guitar/vocals) and Phil Ferlino (keys) of New Monsoon, as well as Keith Moseley (bass) and Jason Hann (drums) of The String Cheese Incident to form a collaborative effort of totally original songs.

The Mynabirds | What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood

With vintage sounding indie bands being a flavor of the year, many bands are relying too heavily on their influences and failing to create something new. In contrast, The Mynabirds create a lively musical synergy on their debut album, What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood. They do not bash the listener over the head with their influences. Instead, they subtly incorporate soul and R & B arrangements into their pop rock sound.
