I want to start off with stating that Shark That Got Her has the coolest band name in the whole state of Utah. I have always been a sucker for band names with shark in them, i.e. Sharks Keep Moving and Bear vs. Shark. Getting back on subject, STGH sound nothing like the two previous bands mentioned. … read more

There is only word I can really use to describe Uncle Scam: “Sexxxcellent.” The band, no matter how good they are, has contributed to the English language in a way where it will never be the same. “Sexxxcellent” is the title of the second track on the band’s genre-smashing, provactive full length, and I’m pretty sure the song is about singer Ischa’s sexual encounter with some unnamed grappling partner. … read more

Boy howdy!! The fuzzed-out funk/punk on this EP is so overwhelming that when you listen to it, you kind of feel like you might be sitting in a pile of your own timber. But rest assured, it’s not you that’s causing this feeling—it’s the astounding sounds of Babble Rabbit. I can’t begin to describe how breathtaking this album is. … read more

While the pace of most the songs on Shark Speed’s second release, Education EP, have a pace and tonal energy similar to that of the majority of the songs on VH1’s top 20 countdown there is a style about them that gives them an organic genuine vibe. … read more

Small Town Sinners aren’t what you would expect from a local alt country band. Each one of their songs seems to slightly pull at your heart strings and randomly sneak back into your brain when you least expect it. … read more
