‘Heartbeat Serenade’ Americana Road Trip

It’s time for a little ride down the back roads of America by way of CommonUnion59. The duo’s latest record Heartbeat Serenade is a fresh alt country breeze from the minds of Steve McKenzie and Laura Malasig.

‘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.

Lovesucker Is Doing It For Themselves

“‘Indie Funk and Gypsy Soul’ actually have a true meaning or a power source. That is who we are and what we do. Simple as that. There are no examples for those terms because there is no one out there doing this sound, this is OUR sound.” – Zolton Von Bury of Lovesucker I love […]

Dave Plaehn’s ‘Radio Sister’ Is A Musical Road Movie

Dave Plaehn’s Radio Sister is an interesting blend of funk, soul and reggae. At times, I feel like I’m watching an episode of Moonlighting and Bruce Willis still has hair.

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.

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 […]

The Only Cosby You’re Going to Need

It sucks that I need to acknowledge this. A band this excellent should not be saddled with any of the fallout surrounding the Bill Cosby scandal. The only thing they have in common is a last name. So we’re done with that because Cosby the band will instantly redeem the name for you. After playing in […]
