Saturday, February 6th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

daughter1Daughter-Not To disappear

Released: January 15, 2016

Rate: 10/10

The band Daughter, gained notoriety from their single, “Youth”. Their sophomore album, Not to disappear picks up right where the previous album lefts up. Though keeping with their “indie folk” mixed with similar sounds to bands like Warpaint, Phantogram and the artist “Ben Howard”. Creating an atmosphere, a world all their own, Daughters, gives its listener an array of melodies, colorful imagery, and Elena Tonrah’s voice is the glue that combines everything together creating the energy of Daughter.

Little King-OD1

Friday, February 5th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170Little King: OD1

Released: April 15, 2014

Rate: 4/10

It may be hard to believe but, Little King has been around for quite sometime, having formed in November of 1996. OD1 is one of the latest band released by the trio. The EP is a nod to classic roc, livened up with melodic guitar riffs; with a sound similar to Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith, and many classic rock greats, the group seems to have missed the mark on this particular album.

Pablo Picker: Paper ships

Nathaniel Bellows-The Old Illusions

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

a0894428352_10Nathaniel Bellows: The Old Illusions

Release: June 2, 2015

Rate: 9/10

Hailing from Boston, Massachusett, Nathaniel Bellows releases his first EP The Old Illusions, is definitely quite an album to be introduced to him by. The musician, visual artist and writer has music akin to folk stars, Mumford and Sons and Hudson Taylor. The Old Illusions is simply a man and his guitar; combining Bellows’ haunting voice akin (again) to the baritone base of Marcus Mumford, and his introspective, and colorful lyrics aid in the immense quality of this record.

Stephanie Berlanga: The way things go 

Release Date: December 29, 2011 

Rate: 7/10 

Stephanie Berlanga’s The way things go, is definitely a step in the right direction for this vocal powerhouse. Described, by many as playing “acoustic pop music” Berlanga’s EP definitely shows off her wide range and powerful vocals, the production on the album is amazing especially for someone who is an up and coming artist. The album gives a small insight into what Berlanga can do; she mixes various different genres, including some country, pop, acoustic, and some alternative rock.  (more…)

Allen Stone and Bernhoft

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015 by Rachel

bandKat and I had the absolute pleasure of seeing not only Allen Stone, but also the very talented Bernhoft on November 11th at the Baltimore Soundstage. It is definitely in my Top 3 concerts of all time. Their energy filled the entire room from top to bottom, no corner was left untouched by Allen’s good vibes. The two were a perfect pairing and complimented each other so well.

In addition to getting to see these two, we were also graced with the presence of Allen’s amazing band! They brought the party with them, and spread it out to the crowd! The extremely packed Soundstage was vibin’ and groovin’ in harmony to both Bernhoft and Allen Stone. It was one of those rare, magical concert experiences where everything is just as it should be. I will never forget the way this concert made me feel. There is nothing better than feeling the bass in your chest, standing in the middle of a crowd of fellow fans, all singing along together. It reminds you you are alive and that it’s amazing to be alive.
Alphonso If you haven’t seen Allen Stone and/or Bernhoft perform, they both deserve to be on your “Must-See” list. If you can catch them together on this tour, or the next one (because insider’s note: they’re best friends now), definitely do it! If only to see Bernhoft come out during Allen’s song “Million” and steal the mic and join in with the band! Actually, scratch that, if only to see Allen’s horns players shaking their hips like they’ve never lied a day in their life, in perfect synchronization. It’s truly a sight to behold.

Anyway you slice it, this concert was a religious experience that took me to a place of peace and happiness I haven’t been to in a while.

DJ Spotlight: Legends of Rock Album Review

Friday, October 23rd, 2015 by Rachel

white snake album cover Whitesnake’s new album The Purple Album, released earlier in 2015, shows that after a 35+ year career, they still have relevance today, and are still very talented. This album shows the band’s musical flexibility, with styles ranging from metal, to soft rock, to their more familiar classic rock feel. It should be said that I am only really familiar with their more commercially successful songs, specifically Still of the Night and Here I Go Again, so I am not aware of the band’s evolution in style over the years. However, this does give me a clear perspective on their skill and the quality of the music on this new album. (more…)

St Paul & The Broken Bones Live 9/12/15

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015 by The Professor

Words & Photos by Katie Kazmierski ’18

saintpaul_rhl6 Paul Janeway of Saint Paul and the Broken Bones sauntered on stage in box-toed shoes almost more sparkly than the Rams Head lights. As he opened with the first song I knew that he wasn’t going to put on any ordinary old show, what with his incredible voice and an extremely talented band that compliments it.

Closing my eyes, I felt like I was transported back in time to the 60s when soul music was revolutionary. But instead of Otis Redding, opening my eyes I found Paul Janeway, who looks like just a normal guy—not someone you’d expect to have the extraordinarily powerful voice he does. Turns out he was once just that: a normal guy who worked as an Alabama bank teller. Lucky for us, he met current bassist Jesse Phillips (who Rachel interviews here!) in 2012 and together they embarked on a musical journey with the goal of making music that worked with Janeway’s smooth, soulful voice.

Sweetlife Festival Day 2

Thursday, July 16th, 2015 by The Professor

Sweetlife 2015 sign We sent Phil and Brandon to Sweetlife Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion to shoot some photos and check out some bands.

From a wide variety of food vendors to green power companies, the whole vibe was green, friendly and fun. Brandon covered Day 1, so Phil does Day 2: (more…)
