Oh my god. Babble Rabbit are at it again. Their new full length is totally doparoonie. They just have an angst that seriously rubs off on me and makes me want to jump up and down and put my head through the wall. … read more

Adventure, love and exploration are a few things we remember and look forward to as parts of summer. From the first track, “Fruit of the Moon,” Bramble takes hold of the pieces of summer and creates a wonderful full sound of acoustic medleys and eclectic percussion. … read more

Rouse yourselves from your drug naps and step out of the cold filth and squalor of your squats, all you crusty D-beat kids. Raise your hands in praise because Blitzkrieg Witchcraft just put out the noisiest, shittiest demo ever. Most of it is just freeform chaos influenced by some powerviolence and a lot of thrashy spike and stud garbage. … read more

Carlos Cornia are a group of guys who are clearly fans of kicking back, smoking a “cigarette” and playing their music—reggae-influenced rock.  The songs manage to convey a chiller vibe while not losing their individuality or tune, like so much similar stuff out there.  … read more

Desolation of Eden is a glimpse into Chelsea Grin’s morbid, non-stop nightmare––a familiar, recurring nightmare that fans of chug-chug, double-kick-drum metal have been having for over 20 years now.  Fortunately for Chelsea Grin, this demographic does not embrace change. … read more

1) Music production software has become too easily accessable by regular Joes. 2) Utah will never emerge from the lesser-known Western states as a music powerhouse with music like this. 3) The bands in the above equation are not meant as praise. … read more

I’m pretty sure vocalist Brittney is actually Vanessa Carlton trying to make a comeback, and that’s okay. I admit I enjoy a mainstream pop song from time to time. “I’m Not Welcome Here and You’re a Mess” is pure catchy pop at it’s best—it‘s a shame it clocks in at just over two minutes. … read more

Barring the fact that perplexion is not a real word, the rest of the title of this release bodes well for Lemmon, because I’m sure he thought this shit was solid gold when he made it—and sometimes confidence is key. I tried some fragrant local kush strains and thought, “Hey, maybe this guy is on to something.” Maybe he really is. … read more
