The Canarys – Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid

The Canarys are a powerful duo emanating from New Orleans that took an interesting route while recording the debut album. These individuals decided to write a conceptual album about human connections, but the circumstances allowed these musicians to spend only a day in the studio before New Orleans shut down for Covid. Therefore, The Canarys… Read More The Canarys – Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid

The 69 Cats – Seven Year Itch CD (Cleopatra Records)

What started as a project between two prolific individuals now threatens to turn into a full-time group.

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.

The Hamiltones – Dracula Invitational, 1791 LP (Swimming Faith / Big Neck Records)

The Hamiltones are coming back on the scene with the blast. Their most-advanced full-length material Dracula Invitational, 1791, represents an illustrious soundtrack for the Dracula b-movie you have never seen and perhaps, may not exist at all. However, their humorous take on classic horror movies intervenes with comprehensive knowledge about this particular movie genre. The… Read More The Hamiltones – Dracula Invitational, 1791 LP (Swimming Faith / Big Neck Records)

During the day, John Toohill is a creative individual who performs with the bands such as Alpha Hopper, The Hamiltons, Night Slaves, Spit Kink, The Midnight Vein, Black & White Cat / Black & White Cake, Cobra Cobra, and I probably forgot some other bands he crossed paths with during his musical endeavors. In the… Read More Science Man – Match Game 7″ (Swimming Faith Records)
