Latest Reviews - September 01, 2014
Golden Void
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.5 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Mount Carmel, Hawkwind, Earthless
The seven song short LP debut from Golden Void is impressive in its ability to capture an authentic 70's psychedelic sound and weathered feel. The San Francisco based foursome are clearly enamored with the sound and stature of Hawkwind, having named themselves after the a track off their 1975 album ... Full Review and Video Clip
Astari Nite
(Stereo Waltz)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: New Wave, Alternative, Dark Wave
Sounds Like: Sisters of Mercy, Depeche Mode, The Cure
The New wave genre can be hit or miss for us, and to be honest we don’t give it enough love. We seem to have been gravitating towards Astari Nite, a New-wave band from Florida. This four-piece consists of Mychael Ghost (lead vocals), Illia Tulloch (Drums), Michael Setton (Guitar), and M. Sallo... Full Review and Video Clip
The 13th Pillar
(All Sounds The Same)

Genre: Psychedelic rock, Modern Krautrock
Sounds Like: Wooden Shijps, Swervedriver
The 13th Pillar is a psychedelic rock band that churn out some spacious and trippy songs on their 2014 EP, All Sounds The Same, released through Bellagroove Records. The band is made up of Selwyn Callister (Guitar and Vocals), Karl Collins (Guitar and Vocals) and Gypo Buggane (Bass, Keyboar... Full Review and Video Clip
Night Lights
(Here We Come)
Staff Rating: Turn this to 4.5 of 11
Genre: Pop, Alternative
Sounds Like: FUN, Bear Hands
Night Lights are a pop, alternative band from Boston, Massachusetts. With members from Mexico, Texas, Japan, California and Norway, we have no idea how they ended up in Boston. Their blend of pop music is fused with some alternative elements that help create some decent hooks and melodies. The album... Full Review and Video Clip
(Reed Capter One)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock, Heavy rock, Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Gammera, Gas Giant, Spirit Caravan
Heavy, spacious and trippy are just a few words that capture the style of stoner rock that SautruS brings to the table. This band from Poland consists of five members; Weno Winter (vocals), Michał Nowak (guitar), Tomek Bushmansky (bass), Piotr 'Ochota' Ochociński (drums) and Ragnar (visuals/manageme...

Tuba Skinny
(Pyramid Strut)
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
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...

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)
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
(Creating Meaning)
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
