Future States – Casual Listener

January 31, 2017 Tyler Miller 0

6/10 From the first notes of the opening track “Forward,” Casual Listener by Future States promises a more experimental foray into some light indie rock. Unfortunately, over the course of the next few songs, these […]


Mimoza H- Uproot

November 16, 2016 Brian Charles Clarke 0

5/10 Mimoza H‘s debut EP Uproot is bleak and powerful. It’s sonically centred around a mix of dense electronics and occasional classical-like arrangements that sound like a cross between Bjork, Chelsea Wolfe, and Florence and […]


Soft Ledges – Soft Ledges

November 11, 2016 Keenan Kerr 0

8/10 My, isn’t this one soft around the ledges [insert goofy smile]. It’s difficult to refrain from making references to the seemingly disappointing results of the U.S elections; however, since Soft Ledges are from Chicago, Illinois, […]


Bloody Death – End Call

October 26, 2016 Richard Brunette 2

3.5/10 At its best, End Call by British artist Bloody Death sounds like songs J. Masics left on the cutting room floor of a Dinosaur Jr jam session. At its worst, it sounds like song […]

6.5/10 Prime Junk‘s latest EP Sunnyvale, follows in the footsteps of classic bands that blurred the lines between melody and dissonance. Their brand of noisy indie rock isn’t exactly innovative, but each track competently pays […]

7.5/10 What goes on inside the human brain? Whatever it is, it’s probably messy, dense, unnerving, and in most cases very, very fuzzy. On their sophomore album Headspace, Montreal power trio Double Date With Death […]


J. Allen – Worry Not

October 8, 2016 Aaron Deck 0

5/10 Production value is an imperative thing when recording. It’s one of those rare, unsung heroes that can make or break any album. Anyone, or their dog, can hook up the ole pro-tools in their […]


The Allegorist – Botanical Utopia

August 15, 2016 Rob Coles 0

8.5/10 The Allegorist’s debut album Botanical Utopia, released on the Kraak record label on June 27, 2016, is unusual for electronic dance music. It’s not the album’s deep, downtempo house beats that sets the Allegorist […]


Outer Spaces – A Shedding Snake

July 17, 2016 Keenan Kerr 0

8/10 Although Outer Spaces vaguely categorizes their genre of music as “very good” on Facebook, they are in fact a pop-rock indie band from Baltimore, MD who recently released their first full-length album. A Shedding […]
