Teen Mom Rocks Mean Tom in the Upside Down

The opening guitar strums to the last furious licks of streaming reverb. This album is soulful and heartfelt from beginning to end. This trio from Washington DC call themselves a little rock band that puts out fuzzy-pop love ballads and from the songs of their first EP Mean Tom they are

Rone – Tohu Bohu (InFiné)

Rone takes a different approach with this album and a groundwork for the future of electronic music Finally, an album by an acclaimed French electronic musician that does not sound so distinctly, well …. French. We have all experienced the piggy back of the Daft Punk generation and second tier DJs

Devil To Pay with Goliathon and No Coast

Venue: Radio Radio, Fountain Square Another chilly night in December for Indianapolis but you would have never known when you entered the bustling Fountain Square area. Not sure the occasion but men and scantily clad women dressed as Santa Clause, happily paraded around the normally tranquil fountain and cut in-between cars

Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band

Venue: The Vogue Theatre, Broad Ripple Between the chain restaurants, bass from club music echoing down Broad Ripple Avenue or frohawk douchebags wearing sunglasses at night; it is getting seriously depressing around here these days.

In the depths of the mechanical, occasionally jarring compositions, one can find melodies that would not

Stumbleine Releases Spiderwebbed on Monotreme Records

Each song has a GQ atmosphere to them. Highly sophisticated, fragile in their own sense and post-modern sterile in production, there is something equally intriguing and frightening to these songs.

neurosis honor selective memory

Neurosis Honor Found In Decay lacks the backdrop for droning dissonance Have you ever had a friend that recommends a band for years upon years but for whatever reason you just never take initiative to look them up? Neurosis is that band to me. Always heard of them but never officially
