I have much love for Dacho. Chief and Doc are probably the two nicest, most chill individuals you will ever meet. This seven-song album marks a proper studio release from the band and, although the production quality lacks a little, the two wonder twins straight-up do work on the music on this album. The musicianship here is exceptional.  … read more

This is what Tenacious D would sound like if they had a pinch of emo in them and listened to Brand New all day long. Patches is good in an acoustic death metal kind of way. This music is really pretty cool for just a couple of guys rocking out on acoustic guitars.  … read more

This music is hardcore aggression and angst with just the right elements of grunge to mix it up into an entirely different concoction. It’s like the gnarliest drink you have ever had that made you feel so good.  … read more

Dreadnought is back again to rock your face off. I had the distinct privilege of reviewing their first album and I wanted to see how the band had progressed in their heavy alternative sound.  … read more

“Ed Hardy” rock is one subgenre of music that for seem reason continues to get more popular every year. [Insert sarcasm.] Bands like the three named above, along with the greatest fucking band of all time, 3 Doors Down, are the reason I love music. … read more

I normally find dancey indie bands really annoying, but Steady Machete is awesome. They are tight as hell and use elements in every song that keep me interested. It’s like a little bit less technical Minus the Bear.  … read more

The Wilderness is definitely solid. The band is tight and the compositions are on point. There is enough variety among the songs to not get too annoyed or bored. However, it’s nothing that is gonna change the world.  … read more

Oh, the smooth, sultry sounds of Jahnre. They soothe the soul and make one think of far-off tropical landscapes and nothing but BTM (big-titty mermaid)s for miles. As much as I feel like the whole no-worries, punk-reggae beach music has run its course, it’s still hard to deny the laid-back attitude of the music.  … read more

Immediately upon listening to Dust and Daylight, I feel like I have been sucked into an old creepy bordello, drunk on some gnarly booze and cavorting around with ol’ busted-ass skeezers trying to get me to spend my time and money on them. … read more

The Vibrant Sound has some seriously cool jazzy tunes. This four-piece band knows how to lay down the creamy sounds. Then, when the band comes in with their falsetto background vocals, it fits the music like they were born to bone for eternity.  … read more
