Andreas drop “Extended Play“ EP
Score: 4/5 Stars
Rock with a Pop beat capturing life’s small moments from an adult perspective. Slightly-skewed and world-weary songs that combine the wry humor of Nick Lowe and Robyn Hitchcock with the sophisticated sounds of Jack Johnson, mellower material from Pearl Jam and G Love. So who are we talking about again? Andreas that’s who. The latest offering “Extended Play” from Canadian 5 piece band Andreas is a delightful album that gleefully moves up and down...

So across my desk slides the new 5 track EP from Hollywood based Matthew Genovese entitled “Chasing the Sun”. During my initial research of Genovese, there were a few lines from his bio that I really liked: Not much can stop 24-year old Matthew Genovese. He was a Dean’s List student on scholarship at Boston’s world-renowned Berklee College of Music, where he majored in songwriting, performance, and guitar. In the spring of 2009 Genovese headed from ‘East to West’ to...

This is the latest 12 song CD from Buffalo based Alt-Rock band Pollock entitled “The Moonlight Show” (2012) Pollock are: Joshua Klein – guitar/vocals / Brian Platter- guitar / Lindsay Leyland- Bass / Mike Quigley – Drums / Aaron Chiz – Synths. I always listen to the opening track extremely carefully. It’s the opening track the band or artists has selected to hit your ears first and foremost. The opening track “Devil” sets the stage...
Twisted Piglet – releases debut CD
3 member English based band Twisted Piglet just dropped their latest CD entitled “Eternity” in 2013. Band consists of: Brodie Payne, Stacey Payne and Paul Reeder. To say the least the music on this CD is as infectious as the band itself. Eternity is a sensational CD. I like the way things kick off immediately with Track 1 “Walk on By”. It delivers a psychedelic guitar/keyboard combination with some amazing vocals that make it a rock solid opener. Right away I...
Arjun releases Space EP
Official URL: http://arjunmusic.com/
This 3 piece Instrumental Rock band from the NY call themselves Arjun. Their latest EP release: Space is sure to be remembered as one of the classic modern Rock-Jazz releases of our time. Its pure funk’d out rock the way it used to be via full-tilt of playing, hooky grooves and a top tiered sound. It’s the ultimate in musical intoxication. Before I get to the review let me first say Space will take you back to a simpler, happier more carefree time. A time before artists...

Genera: Rap, Hip Hop, Dance Pop
Locale: Los Angeles
So who is Lyda anyway? LYDA (real name Ryan Mielke) released his latest, The North Shore EP, on iTunes, SoundCloud and other music providers late last month. I’ve heard my share of rap this year, and most of it is trivial to say the least. Give me something fresh and new within this overly saturated genera please! on North Shore there’s a real sense of cathartic musical independence here via this latest work from LA based Singer/Rapper...
Artist: Escher’s Enigma
EP: From me to There
One of the greatest things a music-lover experiences is the discovery of a new artist so exciting, it makes the listener want to write about it. Sometimes, such jewels are found “underground” rather than mainstream media, but then again, that’s just one of the reasons why the indie scene can be so fascinating; It is a stage designed for creative people, a platform to let their art be seen, and in this case, be heard. Some artists have been...
Artist/Band: The Bend
EP: She’s Evil
CD BABY: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/thebend1
While many feel the music industry is in disarray right now it’s always a breath of fresh air to hear a new and exciting band that’s not afraid to let it all hang out and take chances with their music. With their latest musical offering: Seattle 5 piece unit The Bend, it’s clear to me they have surpassed what I could consider the a-typical musical release from a band in 2013. From the beginning notes of Track 1: “Maharaja” through to...
