Younger Brother | Vaccine | Review

Purposefully unclassifiable and borrowing from predecessors such as Pink Floyd, The Flaming Lips and, as odd as it may appear, Neil Young,

Strange Arrangement | Polygraph | Review

I don’t want to compare Strange Arrangement to any band; I want to compare them to every band.  Take a taste of all the jamband scene has to offer, take a taste of all the funk, bluegrass, soul, and blues of the past, and add them up.  That is what Polygraph sounds like.  The term “poly “meaning “many “is the flavor of this album, many influences, many arrangements and many different ways to get down. 

Royal Bangs | Flux Outside | Review

Knoxville, Tennessee indie trio Royal Bangs will release their third LP Flux Outside March 29th on Glassnote Records. It’s not everyday that an album like this lands on the desk. Sounds like psychedelic prog-pop, maybe…they prefer to call it “easy shred computer jam.” Whatever it is, the musicianship is incredibly tight, the sound intricate and full.

Dinosaur Bones | My Divider | Review

Toronto based Dinosaur Bones released their first full length album, My Divider on March 8th. Reasonably subtle, it presents itself without a whole lot of pushiness and allows the listener to take their time sifting through and discovering its fullness and vast idiosyncrasies at leisurely pace.

Easy Star All Star | Release First Light | Review

On April 5th, New York City based, multi-ethnic reggae outfit Easy Star All Stars will release their first full length record of original material entitled First Light.

Band of Heathens | Top Hat Crown & the Clapmaster's Son | Review

The latest release from the Band of Heathens shows the group taking things further in terms of versatility of style, and demonstrating a certain maturity in songwriting and production. Top Hat Crown & the Clapmaster’s Son is a refined melding of the five member’s individual talents, and a step into some new territory.

Steven Quiry | Pretend | Review

Steven Quiry’s new release Pretend is fantastic.  I come to this conclusion through a long journey of criticism.  At first, I see the name.  Steven Quiry?  What kind of rock star name is that?  It’s no

Akron/Family: S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT

S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT, is the latest release from Akron/Family, the folksy, electronic madmen behind some of the greatest musical endeavors of the last five years. And this latest adventure, as the title might imply, is quite the undertaking.

Leftover Salmon | Twice in a Blue Moon DVD | Review

"There have been some good times, some hard times, some crazy times, some wild road times, some times where people have passed....but it's good to just keep walking" proclaims guitarist/vocalist Vince Herman before the band launches into their original "Just Keep Walking" from their recently released concert DVD Leftover Salmon Live: Twice in a Blue Moon.

String Cheese Incident | Rhythm of the Road Vol. 1 | Review

Nearly all music fans have specific concerts in mind that most will argue are among the group's best live performances.  Examples include The Grateful Dead from Cornell College in 1977, Phish from Vegas 1996, Widespread Panic's 2000 Athens run
