Komara
(ST)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.1 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Experimental, Rock
Sounds Like: Tuatara, Tool, King Crimson
KoMaRa’s debut album pushes the boundaries of creativity by painting a very bizarre and exploratory landscape. The album is a difficult one to put in words. We find ourselves moving into new territories with each listen. The best way to describe the topography that KoMaRa paints is an instrume... Full Review and Video Clip
Wray
(Hypatia)
2016
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6.9 of 11
Genre: Shoegaze, Dream pop, Alternative
Sounds Like: Slowdive, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine
From Birmingham, Alabama welcome Wray and their sophomore release Hypatia. This album gives us twelve soft and dreamy shoegaze tracks that pretty much picks up from their previous Self-Titled release. However, there are slight differences to be found here as the band sounds more ma... Full Review and Video Clip

(USSR 1926)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 10 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Post rock
Sounds Like: Caspian, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai
The Post-rock genre never ceases to amaze us and just as we gear up to review new 2016 releases; we started listening to USSR 1926 by We Stood Like Kings. Our first impression was a feeling of awe and inspiration, to hear a post-rock album with this magnitude is amazing. Reminding us of why... Full Review and Video Clip
Colora
(ST)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.9 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: The Black Angels, The Doors, Puppy Bubble
Colora is a four piece band hailing from Baltimore Maryland. The self-titled album is their first full-length work since releasing two EPs back in 2013. The album has a very classic 60s feel with mono-truistic production splashing in various elements of surf-rock. Dark monotone vocals dominate and a... Full Review and Video Clip

Straight off the coattails of their debut EP, 60s psychedelic pop duo has released their debut Self-Titled full length album. Released through Hairy Records, Lovebyrd has fashioned a spacious, open ended psychedelic pop sound that is easy on the ears. The duo from Sarrebrücken, Germany... Full Review and Video Clip

We grew up listening to Wyndham Hill Classics, which featured some of the best contemporary music on the planet. There were several very powerful acoustic guitar releases featuring superb artists, (check-out the 1994 Guitar Sampler). Peaceful as the wind hits your face on a cool evening hike was whe...

(ST)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.4 of 11
Genre: Post rock, Progressive, Math Rock
Sounds Like: Lite, You Slut!, Pelican
Post-rock with a progressive angle and elements of math rock are just too intriguing to pass up. The endless quest to discover out-of-the-norm post rock has taken us to Paris, France where we discovered instrumental post rockers Lyrae. Their Self-Titled debut EP is a very impressive piece o...

(Sun Future Moon)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: The Soundcarriers, The Doors, Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound
Death Hawks, the name alone leaves one thinking just what am I getting into. It has the potential to just about anything, is it brutal death metal or bluesy stoner rock?  From the album cover we were leaning towards stoner rock with a twist of classic southern hard rock flavor. Well to our deli... Full Review and Video Clip
