We previously heard from Atlanta-based electro-pop wizard Joshua Worden last year, when his track “Midnight” showed off how Worden’s warmly tranquil vocals and lush R&B-tinged electro-pop arrangements combined for a sound akin...
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. But there is much more to this Gilbert, Arizona group. In addition to White, the group is composed of Leighton Antelman (vocals/guitar), Steve McGraw (guitar), [...]

It was a shiny day in London, and I was having a coffee with a fellow musician. 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 […]
We previously heard from Atlanta-based electro-pop wizard Joshua Worden last year, when his track “Midnight” showed off how Worden’s warmly tranquil vocals and lush R&B-tinged electro-pop arrangements combined for a sound akin to falling asleep in a bed full of velvet on a rainy summer afternoon. Over a year later, this tranquility is still present in […] The post Joshua Worden – “Boundless” appeared first on .
Brooklyn-based prog-rockers Gone Quite Mad begin their new track “All the Building Blocks” with dexterous guitar licks and a bustling rhythm section touching on jazz and hints of jazz fusion. The vocal incorporation – somewhat meek but melodically playful – reminds me of Dave Matthews’ approach at first, before expanding into a more Josh Homme-like […] The post Gone Quite Mad – “All the Building Blocks” appeared first on .
After a quick jaunt to the UK, Twin Peaks have returned and they have a new video to share, the playful “Making Breakfast,” directed by their regular collaborator Ryan Ohm.
On Content Nausea , we find Parkay Quarts confidently exploring sounds that were previously only hinted at; Townes Van Zandt, Warren Zevon, and Dylan are evident points of departure on “Uncast Shadow of a Southern Myth”, a lonesome tale about “two men tragically colliding in the deep south”.
