Shanyio – Of The Waters / A Apelor CS

Shanyio came a long way from experimental artist to prolific avant-garde composer/multiinstrumentalist. Perhaps this Romanian artist seem like a prolific musician who releases his recordings on a nearly monthly basis, but Shanyio calculates and simultaneously works on several projects at the time. Therefore, it may appear like his albums and collaborations are popping from every… Read More Shanyio – Of The Waters / A Apelor CS

Alpha Hopper – Last Chance Power Drive LP (Swimming Faith / Radical Empathy)

This material is, what I truly believe, a second full-length by this Buffalo, NY-based quartet. Despite being fully aware of all the activities surrounding Swimming Faith, this recording somehow went under the radar, but luckily, now I have a chance to write a couple of lines about it. For those who missed my previous reviews… Read More Alpha Hopper – Last Chance Power Drive LP (Swimming Faith / Radical Empathy)

Heavy Petter – Such A Drag LP (Reel Too Real Records)

Right with the initial beats of this vinyl release, I knew this band would be right up my alley.

The Dopamines made quite a name for themselves since their inception in 2006. Whoever stumbled upon some of their records probably instantly fell in love with their highly addictive music. In nearly fifteen years of their existence, this Cincinnati, Ohio pop-punk sensation released remarkable full-lengths, such as a debut self-titled album, Expect The Worst, Vices,… Read More The Dopamines – Tales Of Interest LP (Bearded Punk Records)

Black Sheep – Motion Pictures LP (Bearded Punk Records)

It’s a shame when some excellent record passes unnoticed, and there’s no wondering why this is happening since tons of punk rock recordings are popping up every day. Sometimes some lousy records receive more exposure than other releases, and gems are losing a well-deserved spotlight.
