Review debut album Arbor Labor Union

This is a great debut album if you ask me. I Hear You ticks a lot of boxes for me, musically speaking. Not to mention the clever band name. Their music will appeal to a broad spectrum, though post alternative/grunge rock appreciators will be pleased the most. One...

Review Back in the Ring

https://open.spotify.com/track/1H7EOMFb4qDgoAj2gt9KFN So glad this empress of folk is back (in the ring) after finally releasing her full length new album via Spotify. Though after listening, am definitely planning on making a vinyl purchase. Her '14 How I Learned to...

Review Heat’s ‘Rooms’ EP

I assure you the lead singer is of no relation but does offer an uncanny resemblance to the late Lou Reed (with a twist of Jagger & Dylan). Posting this via Kitsuné since I came across their music while listening to the New Faces II playlist. Really like these French...

Review Jimi: All is by My Side

Was already on my 'must see' musical docu/film list. Had read a bit about it beforehand but purposefully no reviews or anything since I like to watch (and/or listen for that matter) and form my own opinion. As far as Jimi himself is concerned, I also didn't know much...
