Umphrey's McGee | Similar Skin | New Music Review

Meshing musical styles ranging from Prog to Pop, with wholesome doses of 90’s Alternative & Electronica, Umphprey’s McGee “Similar Skin” (Release Date: June 10. 2014) reinvents the jam ethos uniquely, truly and respectably with sounds that simultaneously sail and soar.

Christina Rubino | Alive from the Scrapheap | Review

It's easy to know how to categorize an artist like Christina Rubino. Self-described as “a Female Johnny Cash” Alive from the Scrapheap’ is one of the more dark releases I’ve heard this year. It’s not so dark and apocalyptic steeped in the fog of shock mind you, but rather extremely truthful and honest. It’s got sold melodies and impressive musicianship – which is a rarity in today music.

moe. | No Guts, No Glory | Review

Since I began my professional music writing career over 20 years ago, one thing I have taught myself over that time when it comes to new album reviews is to never pass judgment after only one listen.  Yes, there is something to be said about first impressions however one cannot truly digest the music until given ample hearings.

Nick Moss Band | Time Ain't Free | New Music Review

Blending the elements of Blues, Rock, Funk, Jam & Soul, Chicago’s own Nick Moss Band, on this, their 10th album release, bring an electrifying smorgasboard to the table with Time Ain’t Free (Released March 18th 2014 and in stores now).

Eccodek | Singing in Tongues | New Music Review

Never has an LP’s title been more apt—Eccodek’s sixth and latest, Singing in Tongues, is foreign to the letter. (And no, I couldn’t tell you what tongues we’re talking here.)

Henry + The Invisibles | Onemanphunkband | New Music Review

Those on the Henry & Co. payroll say “breezy melodies and relentless grooves” are par for the course with Onemanphunkband... okay, I’ll allow it. Sure, this funky little EP doesn’t really go all that far, but does it even need to?

The Mother Hips | Chronicle Man | New Music Review

The Mother Hips’ve been around long enough and released a helluva ‘nough material that this collection of rarities and demo tapes, Chronicle Man, is gonna be for the band’s ready-converted disciples first and foremost. That being said, I still have my bones to pick with the set, as well as a few highlights of note. Let’s get down to it...

French Style Furs | Is Exotic Bait | New Music Review

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." - Thomas Merton

Joseph LeMay Communicates Truth, Doubt, Love across Seventeen Acres

There are many faces and aspects of love, and Tennessee singer/songwriter Joseph LeMay hits on many of them on his first full length album, Seventeen Acres. From past or potential love to new love to lasting and exciting love, his songs take you through the emotions of such experiences not only as they relate to relationships, but to life in general.

Tribal Seeds | Representing | New Music Review

Representing’s titular track opens harmlessly enough with pan flutes that could’ve come right out of a fifth grade recorder songbook—off-beat, a few clinks on the cymbals, notes here and there... and then those reverb-laden drums start to build in the fourth bar, the trills become methodical... and we’ve arrived.
