Epic Summer

Grade: B+

Matt Koelsch & The Allies’s sophomore album Epic Summer is just delightful. Each song on the album has an attitude of its own, clearly portraying the amazing writing skills of Matt Koelsch. For those who have never heard their music, it’s a mix of blues, folk, rock and country which is represented in this album. Read the rest of this entry »

April 11th, 2014 by Margaret Jokoh

Lithium Burn 

Grade: A

Deleted Scene’s new album, set to release April 15 definitely captures the essence of their music-art rock. Melodic rhythms, infused with some math rock, helps set this band apart from others. This album definitely demonstrates are much this band has grown, how mature they are and how knowledge/talented they are on their instruments. Lithium Burn also gives you a very pop sound, heard on the title track ” Haircuts/Uniforms.” Read the rest of this entry »

April 10th, 2014 by Margaret Jokoh

thNight Riots

Young Lore

Grade: A

California rocker, Night Riots self-funded this amazing EP. Young Lore is just 6 songs of absolute fun-it combines, harmonic vocals, solid drumming and simple yet amazing guitar riffs. The saying, “simple is better” really defines these indie rocker, though each song is clearly thought out, none of the songs are over produced instrumental wise. Read the rest of this entry »

Odludek

Grade: C+

Originally apart of the English rock band, “Doves” Jimi Goodwin’s solo album Odludek falls very short. Odludek is unable to seamlessly blend it’s many different sounds together, with one song being very rock, another being very folk-almost sounding like english rock counterparts, “Mumford & Sons.” This album also, seems to be lacking in quality musically-the vocals lack emotion, while musically everything seems to be all over the place sometimes leaving listeners wondering where one song ends and the next begins.
