51U9D5Uo+HL._SY300_Frances England-Explorer of the world

Release Date: April 1, 2016

Rate: 8/10

Frances England, a children’s artist releases her new album Explorer of the World is absolutely fun and whimsical. England’s voice is absolutely perfect for children’s music, the primarily acoustic album is not only good for children but is also something adults can get into as well. Her voice is light airy and absolutely infectious, her songs are simply cute and you can’t help but to smile. The production on the album is fairly good, but the songs and the vibe of the songs makes up tremendously for the decent production. If you have kids, or just want music to chill too, I would definitely check this album out!

Toronzo Cannon Interview 2/27/16

Sunday, February 28th, 2016 by The Professor

Bluesman and MTA bus driver Toronzo Cannon lit up the scene at the 2016 Lancaster Roots and Blues Festival with a wild set at the Federal Taphouse to a hyped up crowd. Hitting tracks from his new Chicago Way album (his first on venerable blues label Alligator) and chewing on his Flying V strings, Toronzo had everyone’s attention. Last night, on day 2 of the festival, he jumped on stage with fellow Chicagoans Lil’ Ed and The Blues Imperials for a quick jam at The Chameleon Club. He also, after sharing some pizza and a nice stroll through downtown Lancaster, sat down with me to chat about his new album, touring on his vacation days and driving an MTA bus full time. We had to contend with fan interruptions and noise and finally ended up in a stairwell as he was kind enough to keep talking through the chaos. Toronzo’s getting a lot of well-deserved attention for his music, but don’t expect him to quit his day job!

Rate: 10/10

Stereo Reform is just bound to blow up. With its sound being similar to Capital Cities, Walk the Moon and Fickle Friends, and vocals that are strikingly similar to Nicholas Petricca of Walk the moon, Stereo Reform is the “Next Big Thing”. (more…)

Josh Taerk-Here’s to change

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170-1Josh Taerk-Here’s to change

Release: June 1, 2015

Rate: 5/10

At only 25, Josh Taerk’s album Here’s to change has an old time feel; the album sounds very mature and polished from someone so young. In some instances it sounds like a live album than a studio recording. Lyrics that give off hues of personal experience, triumph and growth radiate through out the entire album. I would say Josh Taerk is a more acoustic, one man version of the band “Train”. (more…)

Betty Moon-Pantomania

Thursday, February 18th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

FOLDOVERBetty Moon-Pantomania

Release: July 28, 2015

Rate: 8/10

Betty Moon, a Toronto born singer, songwriter, producer and filmmaker’s album Pantomania is an album that exhibits her deep sultry vocal tone. Her music as well as the album has vibes from Madonna and musicality similar to bands like WarPaint, Phantogram and Massive Attack. The sound is very spacey/futuristic pop with an underlying rock base executed by the distorted guitars. The sound is very mesmerizing and groovy; one of the songs on the album “Thunder” sounds a lot like “R U Mine?” by the Arctic Monkeys. (more…)

The Benedict Dollyrockers-The Benedict Dollyrockers

Released: November 3, 2015

Rate: 4/10

The Benedict DollyRockers are a country/rock/jam band originally from Coldwater, Michigan, but currently reside in Kalamazoo. Though they call themselves a “jam band” they do not seem very “jam-band”like. It seems like they are perpetually sad, and honestly I wish they were a little more upbeat or enthusiastic. Lyrically they can come off whiny and uninspired, their vocalist has a whiny twang as well that can be very unappealing. Many of the songs on the album can sound pretty repetitive, and honestly can sound the same. Despite this, I do here vibes from the Red Hit Chilli Peppers; as well as that, it is evident from their guitar solos that they are talented instrumentally but they do not utilize their talent very well and its kind of a disappoint.

Daughters-Not To Disappear

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

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.
