Rainstick Cowbell, Hand over the Heart

Rainstick Cowbell, Hand over the Heart

Rainstick Cowbell (Scott Arbogast) in an interesting Slop Folk artist based out of Portland, OR. As I gave this, his fourth release to date a right and proper listen I have to agree with the slop folk comments – but it also has remnants of classic Psychedelic Rock. I’m a huge fan of Psychedelic...

Rachel Lynn Sebastian, Raven Heart

Rachel Lynn Sebastian, Raven Heart

After six arduous weeks of recording, the collaborators were met with a major setback: All twelve “Raven Heart” songs needed to be remixed and re-mastered. The problem was that Rachel Lynn had already scheduled a six-month U.S. tour to promote the album that would not be rescheduled. The decision was made: Cori Jacobs (Master...

Love Jupiter, 1967

Love Jupiter, 1967

Over the years we’ve seen rock, pop, and even hard rock slowly erode into over-commercialized, corporate puppet shows providing music that is extremely sing songy, predictable, popish and highly corporate. I hereby call this new breed of music “Poser Rock” and I want to personally thank all the corporate giants for successfully transforming “Sex...

Wolfgang Douglas, Wonderful Life

Wolfgang Douglas, Wonderful Life

Wolfgang Douglas’s “Wonderful Life” lets loose. Everything within the two songs emphasizes this carefree attitude. Sonically the songs resemble The Strokes’ second album hopped up on unreasonable amounts of caffeine. This means the hooks are strong. Rhythms are out of control moving as fast as possible. Lyrically the two songs reflect this overall gleeful...

Hunter & The Dirty Jacks, Single Barrel

Hunter & The Dirty Jacks, Single Barrel

Here’s to pouring old wine into new bottles. Hunter & The Dirty Jacks, a Los Angeles based blues-rock outfit, have self-released their full-length debut, Single Barrel, without even a blink of irony. While younger, retro-themed bands in other subgenres are increasingly steering towards sharper moments of outright parody, a unit like this never falls...

Sam Northwood, “Want To Be Home”

Sam Northwood is a pop singer out of London, England. His current single is dedicated to raising awareness of being homeless and the trials that go along with the misfortune. This is a cause that I believe is often marred by judgment and ridicule and I am very pleased with his efforts. We can...

RxGF, Any Other Way

RxGF, Any Other Way

RxGF’s “Any Other Way” is what dark wave should be. The edge in the arrangements is nicely complemented by Angeline Schaaf’s powerful emotive voice. Alongside this the music itself benefits from the extensive subtle use of samples which give the overall sound a greyish foreboding atmosphere. For the more decipherable samples the overall effect...

Origami Horses, Trashola!

Origami Horses, Trashola!

“Trashola!” runs the gamut from the Velvet Underground’s party rock to Slint’s Post-Rock. Styles range from noisy abrasive lo-fi garage rock jams to droning Zen-like repetitive pieces. While they extensively reference the past they add their own peculiar take. Unique vocals, the soothing calm of the bass, and the large dollops of distortion that...
