Return for Refund Is A Radio Favorite Replay

Return for Refund has quickly become a college radio favorite and their self-entitled EP is getting a lot of air play. That rapid-growing following is probably because the band have paid their dues and have made a serious study of some tried and true genres; hard rock and funk with a splash of grunge alt. Return […]

‘Eugene’ is goste’s World

Brooklyn’s goste (Owen Ross) has created a cool little joint with his latest and third project, Eugene. Eugene feels like a city about 2000 years after an apocalypse where things were fucked up for a while but now, we’re aight. At least that’s my very loose interpretation of the images that Eugene produces. goste is […]

It’s been a long time since I’ve heard a rock opera but The Workers certainly conjured up images of Tommy with their latest EP Totem. Lead by Dan Greenwald, Totem is a collection of deliciously odd melodies. The Workers bill themselves at The Talking Heads meets Frank Zappa but I think Totem is even more […]

Nate Paladino Is Your Wicked ‘Good Boy’

Nate Paladino knows his way around some lyrics, navigating with a prankster sense of humor. Funny, poignant and crass, Paladino’s latest EP Good Boy verges on the cynical but pulls back in time to remind us that we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously. Good Boy is a lot of fun. “My Kind of Bitch” is excellent […]
