Tuba Skinny
(Pyramid Strut)
2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Traditional Jazz, Blues
Sounds Like: Billie Holiday, Benny Goodman, Squirrel Nut Zippers
Wait, what year is it? Is it the early 1900’s? Throw this album on and you’ll be instantly transported back to that early New Orleans jazz, blues and ragtime era. That’s the feeling you’ll get when you listen to Pyramid Street by Tuba Skinny. Their fifth album is as... Full Review and Video Clip
Queen Elephantine
(Scarab)
2013
Staff Rating: Turn this to 4 of 11
Genre: Doom, Sludge rock
Sounds Like: Om, YOB, Electric Wizard
Believe us we get the whole doom metal sludge rock thing. We understand the simplicity in utilizing the droning 3 bass chords. We get the minimalistic approach and dark artistry that some key bands have been blessed with. Our lives have been enhanced by spending many hours listening to the simplisti...

novemthree

2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Folk, Ambient, Psychedelic folk
Sounds Like: Hexvessel, Darkwood
:novembthree: are a psychedelic folk duo from the deep dark woods of the Pacific Northwest, USA. Comprised of two very talented musicians, Pythagumus and Michael, the collaboration between these two is very unique. Each contribute on all the instruments and vocals to create a mesmerizing, gentle so... Full Review and Video Clip
Survival Knife
(Loose Power)
2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.5 of 11
Genre: Math Rock, Indie, Rock
Sounds Like: Far, Mystery Machine, Jawbox
Survival Knife has a deep rooted 90's laced vibe. This vibe primarily stems from lead singer Justin Trosper, former frontman for the powerful hardcore noise rock band, Unwound. Unlike Unwound, however, Survival Knife provides more coherence and fine tuned craftsmanship.  Their debut al... Full Review and Video Clip
Oblivious
(Creating Meaning)
2013
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5 of 11
Genre: Rock
Sounds Like: Graveyard, Queens of the Stoneage, Kadavar
Looking for that new blues rock band that is a bit different and original to add to your collection? Well Oblivious, a four-piece rock band from Sweden are hit and miss. Their 2013 release Creating Meaning seems to fall flat in terms of originality. The music here is actually pretty good as... Full Review and Video Clip
Okta Logue
(Tales of a Transit City)
2013
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.5 of 11
Genre: Rock
Sounds Like: Pink Floyd, The Verve, Doves
Steady wins the race as they say. If you are looking for a straight shooting solid album give Okta Logue's Tales of a Transit City a shot. Blend Richard Ashcroft from the The Verve with David Gilmour from Pink Floyd and you will have the soothing melancholy effect of Benno Hertz's voice. Th... Full Review and Video Clip
Helen Money
(Arriving Angels)
2013
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Cello, Doom
Sounds Like: Bernd Alois Zimmermann, Sun O))), Ides of Gemini
Once in a while we come across a musician who just impresses the hell out of us as they are totally devoted to their art.  Think Mike Patton, Frank Zappa, or Diamanda Galas. Are they geniuses in their craft, many think so. Their music is so out there that people either love them or just not int... Full Review and Video Clip
Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside
(Untamed Beast)
2013
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5.5 of 11
Genre: Rock, Blues
Sounds Like: Fiona Apple, The Alabama Shakes, Amy Whinehouse
Portland based Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside's sophomore album Untamed Beast has some very raw and interesting ingredients. Uncooked with no preservatives (or harmonies) and quite powerful are the vocals of Ms. Ford. Her conservative physical appearance certainly contradict her strong p... Full Review and Video Clip
Two Foot Yard
(Borrowed Arms)
2008
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Folk, Jazz
Sounds Like: Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Experiment, Rasputina, Peggy Sue
2 Foot Yard may be an unusual band name, but it’s also intriguing, as is their blend of off-beat jazzy music.  This San Francisco trio has released two albums and their latest 2008’s Borrowed Arms is unique and authentic. This album will take you on a trip through inventive... Full Review and Video Clip
Poor Moon
(ST)
2012
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Folk, Indie
Sounds Like: Fleet Foxes, Soft Swells, Release the Sunbird
If you are not familiar with the works of Fleet Foxes, we highly recommend you delve into their library of terrific albums. Poor Moon is an offshoot side project of theirs led by Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott and has eluded mainstream play and popularity. Poor Moon blends different and darker ha...
