How To Get To Heaven by A Social StateThe second helping from Pennsylvania four-piece A Social State, How To Get To Heaven, opens with a naked, sparse drumming pattern; a simple thudding that invites intrigue, leaving no clue as to what the rest of the album will sound like. Then, 11 seconds in, a searing riff and seething vocal rip through the simplicity.   Following 2013’s Everyone’s Your Friend, A   Read More ...

Rating: 9/10   Kill It Kid is an hot indie/blues rock 4 piece from the UK. They’ve unleashed their highly anticipated second album “You Owe Nothing” on June 6th.   This album comes as a breath of fresh air and right at the best possible time when gritty garage blue rock is making a comeback with bands like Royal Blood and Little Hurricane. This album has all of the right   Read More ...

Review: 8/10   For Fans Of: Incubus, U2, A Perfect Circle   While this album is at home with an unassuming subtlety, Young Fox harness the passion and emotion through their music to spill over you and whisk you away. It’s a great debut from these guys that hits a bullseye with the ‘mood rock’ genre. The sonic presence of the instrumentation will hold it’s own, while the vocals are   Read More ...

Review: 8/10   My Goodness is back with a new album “Shiver + Shake”!! These guys were on my Top Albums of 2011 list with their debut album.   They’re an homage to the 2 man band along the likes of  White Stripes, Black Keys, and Little Hurricane to the grunge era Seattle scene bands who just belt it out 100%. Shiver + Shake is another balls to the wall   Read More ...
