Black Sugar Transmission “In The City’s Arms” Album Review

Music is a forever evolving animal.  You can choose to evolve with it, or continue to live int he past.  Black Sugar Transmission chooses to live in the former and “In The City’s Arms” just proves this to be true, and true again.  It is pop for those who like pop, rock for those who like rock and experimental for those who drink a lot of coffee and are slightly erratic.

Lost Themes

John Carpenter to Release Debut Solo Album

Legendary horror director and composer, John Carpenter (Halloween, They Live), will release his first solo album, Lost Themes, on Brooklyn label Sacred Bones Records, February 3, 2015. The album, a collaboration with Cody Carpenter of the band Ludrium and Daniel Davies, who score I, Frankenstein, falls into Carpenter’s style of repetitive synth splices that reach some terrifically terrifying crescendos. The first track, “Vortex,” has been released along with a video set to clips from different...

Wormburner Release Third Album

Last Friday evening at the Mercury Lounge in New York City Wormburner, a Brooklyn band by-way-of Hoboken, NJ, celebrated the launch of their third album, Pleasant Living in Planned Communitites. The new album, which is officially released today, is a barreling hurricane of rock anchored by the impish tones of lead singer Hank Henry. A cross between the chaotic beer-soaked party sound of The Hold Steady and an ambiguously Irish punk band, Wormburner have created...

Double Experience

Nerds from our great neighbors from the North can rock!  Double Experience is a lot more than a couple of gamers with instruments.  Their upcoming album goes to show that gamers really do have feelings, and they are not ashamed to talk about em!

Echosmith “Acoustic Dreams”

As we all know by now, these California siblings can rock!  Wait….you didn’t already know that?  “Cool Kids” by the band is being played on almost every radio station out there.  It’s one of the few genre bending tunes that can be rocked on the Top 40 Stations just as easily as it is on the Alt Rock Stations.

The String Arcade: Enrich your Gaming Experience

Free Track Sample (“Grasswalk” – Plants vs Zombies) Music is a vital part of our lives. Regardless if you consider yourself a music lover or not, I can guarantee that nearly everyone has at least one or two songs that they hold near and dear to their heart. Music entertains us but it also enlightens us. A stroke of a bow or a few strums on a guitar can tell you more about an individual’s...

Exclusive Video Premiere for Delhi 2 Dublin’s Turn Up The Stereo (The Funk Hunter’s Remix) and Album Review

Delhi 2 Dublin is a genre defining band if the genre is “World Rock”.  Saying Delhi 2 Dublin is multicultural is an understatement.  The band’s name alone is quite blunt.  Delhi 2 Dublin is just that, a fusion of Indian and Celtic inspired music.  What does that sound like?  Not what you would expect, it’s actually quite awesome.  If you aren’t already confused, let me add this.  They are from Canada, but don’t let that...

Back with their fifth album,  “Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy” are the alt rockers dredg!  If you’re unfamiliar with these California natives, might I suggest you check out their second album, “Catch Without Arms” which was released back in 2005.  Why that album you ask?  I’ll tell ya.  That was the album that turned me onto the band.  I can’t even imagine to guess how many times I’ve listened to the entire CD.  Not just one...
