Erick-Blu

From That Summer (Vol.1) Compilation – Victorious by Erick Blu

By: John McCall Some songs are simple. Some songs don’t take a lot of brain power to process and understand the overall narrative behind them. More frequently than anyone wants to admit, often pop songs are just jingles wrapped up like artistic, original tracks that were crafted...

Louise Lemón – “Thirst”

By: Olivia McAuley Interwoven between her ethereal phonics, Swedish musician Louise Lemón injects an edge of darkness to the single "Thirst", taken from her debut album Purge.

The Color Forty Nine

By James Olsen The Color Forty Nine are a group with much to describe about on their first release. Front man, Phil Beaumont, for instance plays the bass but finds a baritone ukulele much easier to travel with, making it the first album that way. Matt Resovich plays...

By: John McCall The album title and cover might make this seem like some alt rock/indie rock collection crossed with a meaningful dose of Americana and that’s definitely part of the story. Labels ultimately fall away, however, and what we really have with Garrett “Sleepy” Zuhoski’s...

Kid Astray – Ignite

By: John McCall Coming stampeding out of Norway with a uniquely Scandinavian thunder is the sensational burgeoning pop group Kid Astray, whose brand new extended play, Ignite, is setting both sides of the Atlantic on fire with its fun hooks and spellbinding layers of dreamy pop synthesizers....

Joyner shares new EP

By: John McCall   Big guns and flashy cars, meaningless sex and a fondness for greed and violence; sometimes it seems like these aren’t just the most popular subjects in popular music today, but instead they’re the only ones we’ve got. But the pessimists be damned; L.A.’s angelic...

Patiently Awaiting The Meteorite

Patiently Awaiting the Meteorite – Electrified

By; John  McCall Oh yeah. The pop world has needed a project like Patiently Awaiting the Meteorite to come down the pike for some time; it’s a collaboration bringing together modern production values and a confident attitude with a commitment to both entertain and deliver genuine...
