Nightmare of You sets the tone with “I Was Never A Normal Boy” tune from its Bang CD (2007 The Bevonshire). The lyrics of this song are interesting, though they don’t quite stretch to the vision that the title promises. Close. (This veteran listener would encourage them to keep up the good work.) The title [...]
It’s a rare rock/alternative group that separates itself from the run-of-the-mill bands with a band member on piano and other keyboards. Lydia is on its way, with singer/keyboardist Mindy White.

I realized that the biggest part of the conversation was his ranting about the ‘bad situation in independent local music scene’. “There’s so much knowledge out there, I don’t disagree with you, but it’s scattered all around the […]
Kicked off by heavy slaps of distorted guitar, Tom Flash’s new track “Lose Control” reminds me of the crunchy and ferocious alt-rock of Queens of the Stone Age — especially upon the powerful guitar emphasis from 02:11 to 03:35. The halted tease around 25 seconds in provides an exciting bursting intro to the track’s meatiest sections. The […] The post Tom Flash – “Lose Control” appeared first on .
