‘love for the struggle and love for the mosh’
they have probably passed their emerging status
the Sex-Pistols-inspired Donald Trump imagery
Babetown covering Adams covering Oasis in Taylor Swift’s style?
At the end they could well be like an electro-Morrissey
This woman is a badass and she has the right attitude.
‘The chemistry was immediate”
It’s a hit if they have one, all power chords and wall of guitars
‘When I wrote ‘Play House,’ it was about a boy that made me want to dress super-girly, cook for him and have tiny human babies with him!’
Kiefer has announced a 26-city tour in support of his 11-track debut album ‘Down in a Hole’.
the track basically just keeps on evolving in surprising directions with electronic and synthetic layers, Arabic beats and cavernous vocals
He is the last one of the one-of-a-kinds. This is a much deserved victory lap for a man who’s not sure if he won. But he did’
A deserved reputation as just a pretty face who is more than a pretty face.
Lostlight might not be cool but they should sure get rich.
The EP has a youthful intensity and given the nobody in their twenties trio, Jacob Faber (drums) Nick Kivlen (vox/guitar) as well as Julia, that isn’t quite surprising. There is a sort of inquisitive arrogance to the band, who live together in a four room loft in Brooklyn like they are awaiting for the director of their reality show to shout action.
The Bloodhounds, which are Aaron “Little Rock” Piedraita on rhythm guitar, Johnny Santana on bass, Branden Santos on lead guitar and Mark Schafler on drums and percussion, are releasing their debut album ‘Let Loose’ via Alive Naturalsound, and since the Origami crowd didn’t want to let them go and were asking for encores, they must have played most of the album.
Satellite Sky is a new Australian duo featuring Pete Kicks and Kim Kicks and what more do you want to know when they already have this last name? Yes, they kick ass on vocals, guitar and drums, yes, they are brother and sister and yes, the girl is on drums just like another famous rock duo who were just faking their siblingness.
The EP is kinda exciting in this temperate rock and roll moment: the band seem always on the verge of total collapse, they sound ;ike you just after you’re second Xanax, third line of coke and a double expresso in a bottle of red bull: somewhere between dizzy and dead right. “Handswaps” is a waking nightmare of a song!
Minnow is one of the most highly anticipated independent bands of 2015, and it’s gonna be again a hard one to pigeonhole, but one thing is sure, they were all about moody atmospheres mixing a curious nostalgia with a dramatic and wrapping sound.
a sumptuous symphonic band with layers of instrumentation and a cinematic approach to music. Their album is a lush orchestral affair, with poignant strings and Kristianne Bautista’s amazing and soulful voice. A must have. Essential tracks: ‘Forever Found’
For a foreign band, at the smaller level that they are, Gnarwolves most definitely deserve more praise for their craft and should absolutely be headlining all of the big summer tours found in the American punk world.
