Jacob Jeffries Band | Tell Me Secrets | New Music Review

Submitted by Carmen Cojocariu on Wed, 07/18/2012 - 7:07 pm

Jacob Jeffries Band’s album Tell Me Secrets has a lot of secrets to tell. For starters, they can definitely write some poetry. With their plethora of rhymes, Jacob Jeffries Band is a mix of Ryan Adams and their own personal blend of rock. A light piano rock album, Jacob Jeffries sings his heart out.The album consists of self-reflection, break ups, love, and a dash of indie to boot. With easily relatable lyrics, their second track is a great break up song.

Submitted by Carmen Cojocariu on Tue, 07/10/2012 - 12:05 pm

Looking for a jazzy and snazzy indie sound with catchy lyrics and catchier guitar licks? Look no further than Cosmo Jarvis’s Think Bigger. Relaxing, catchy, and a flawless voice—Cosmo Jarvis is just what the doctor prescribed. He has an acoustic sound with vocals kind of like Jack Johnson meets Mat Kearney.The whole album screams, “listen to me! Listen to me!” and it’s hard to really pick your favorite song. The first track, “Love This,” draws you in and makes you listen to the whole album.

Submitted by Carmen Cojocariu on Mon, 06/25/2012 - 5:07 pm

Rightly named Music For My Soul, Domino Effect created an album that elicits a feel good vibe throughout. Starting (and finishing) with a positive message, Domino Effect begins their new album with Chains and It’s Alright. Their sound is reminiscent of a snippet of a few bands.

Dangermuffin | 'Olly Oxen Free' | New Music Review

Submitted by John Mosley on Wed, 06/20/2012 - 6:54 pm

Olly Oxen Free, the newest album from South Carolina-based band Dangermuffin, is a fun listen. Blending elements of roots rock with a sprinkling of southern slides, improvised instrumentals, and meandering drum breaks, the trio plays an interesting sort of rambling-jam music that showcases quite a bit of range.

Eliot Lipp: Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake | New Music Review

Submitted by John Mosley on Tue, 06/12/2012 - 8:01 pm

For the record, I believe that Pretty Lights Music (the label) represents the future of independent electronic music, offering digital, freely available releases to the public and paying the way with goodwill and a collective reputation for putting on tight live shows.

McCauliffe Brothers Band: It's Likely | New Music Review

Submitted by John Mosley on Tue, 06/12/2012 - 7:32 pm

The McCauliffe Brothers Band’s debut full-length, It’s Likely, is, to be quite frank, a mixed bag. A self-described rock/funk/jazz/improvisation/pop act, the North Carolina band treads the line between genres with varied success throughout their first album. To be sure, some listeners will find fault with the band’s musical schizophrenia or the lack of definition in their sound. For my part, though, I enjoyed the set as a whole.
