Snowball Music Festival: 3 Days Mile High

I want to start by emphasizing the importance of keeping an open mind always, but especially when listening to and choosing live music to see. Throughout all of my years of seeing a lot of live music, I have always listened before I judged, and it has afforded me the ability to discover bands and performers that I would have never known about. On the other hand, I know countless people that either stereotype, pigeon hole themselves, or scan lineups and then comment as if they have already attended the event.

Jimkata | Die Digital | New Music Review

Listening to northeastern synth-tinged rock band Jimkata, it’s obvious that these boys want to add their own special blend of spice to the standard of indie fare that’s become business-as-usual in an increasingly predictable genre. And with their fourth studio album, Die Digital, the foursome augments what might otherwise function as stale pop-rock with vintage keys and electronics, adding a layer oftentimes absent from other lyrics-centric acts of this sort.
