2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Wolfmother, Led Zeppelin, Dead Meadow
We are way past the odd and confusing band name. What we have settled into is that this is that this is a fucking great band that will hopefully be around for a long time. On their third release, Spirit Knife, Jeremy Irons & the Ratgang Malibus (JIRM) continue to mature and prove that t... Full Review and Video Clip

2011
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6.5 of 11
Genre: Heavy rock
Sounds Like: Brain Police, Alabama Thunderpussy, Orange Goblin
Little is known about the band MotherMadness, but what we do know is that they are a four-piece outfit that spews out heavy rock in vein of bands like Brain Police or Alabama Thunderpussy. They have made great strides from their debut EP to their second one, Monsferri Cavemen. There are onl... Full Review and Video Clip
One Hundred Dollars
(Songs of Man)
2011
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6 of 11
Genre: Folk, Country, Indie
Sounds Like: The Head and the Heart, First Aid Kit, Lord Huron
One Hundred Dollars, a Toronto-based band had an aura about them that caught our attention. Their music is laced with folk and country melodies along with a touch of psychedelic undertones and intriguing story-telling. Their 2011 album, Songs of Man has been in our rotation for a while now ... Full Review and Video Clip
Third Ear Experience
(Incredible Good Fortune)
2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Atmospheric rock
Sounds Like: Tool, King Crimson, Farflung
The third release from 3rd Ear Experience does not include the prowess of the Dug Pinnick on lead vocals like their 2013 release Boi.  Don't let that curb your enthusiasm though. Incredible Good Fortune takes things to even more impressive levels. The album offers even more de... Full Review and Video Clip
White Poppy
(ST)
2013
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6.5 of 11
Genre: Dream pop, Shoegaze
Sounds Like: Beaches, Crystal Stilts
White Poppy is the solo project of musician Crystal Dorval, and her first full-length is packed with mind-expansive dream pop and lo-fi shoegaze. It’s a very soft and peaceful album; she describes her music as 'experimental therapeutic pop', which pretty much sums up the album very well. Dorva... Full Review and Video Clip
Field Report
(ST)
2012
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Americana, Folk
Sounds Like: David Gray, The Wallflowers
This album bleeds a blend of The Wallflowers and David Gray. Heavy on the personal experience lyrics that requires several listens to absorb the plot and pull the melodies. We can equate the Field Report experience to that of short novel where multiple unknown characters intertwine into deep rooted ... Full Review and Video Clip
Southern Train Gypsy
(Hallelujah in the Fire)
2011
Staff Rating: Turn this to 4.5 of 11
Genre: Hard rock
Sounds Like: Clutch, Mudweiser, Crowbar
When the vocals are this pronounced it is difficult to get away with poor lyrics. Lyrics that really cause you to pause and scratch your head... "did he just say that?" Southern Train Gypsy's debut album is, believe it or not, a concept album that entails songs revolving around 'the gunslinger' bein... Full Review and Video Clip
Eyes On The Shore
(ST)
2013
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Rock
Sounds Like: Hookworms, Young the Giant, Band of Horses
Eyes on the Shore have a spacious and lofty sound. Their name very much suits their sound. A vision of the shore that is expansive and engrossing. While their genre may be straightforward, their song structure is diverse and intelligent. The band strays from the normal hooks and melodies at the pred... Full Review and Video Clip

Genre: Post rock, Instrumental

The Seven Mile Journey (TSMJ), a four piece band hailing from Denmark, have put together a sonically beautiful piece of work for their third full-length, Notes for the Synthesis.
