  • Hendricks The Hatmaker – S/T CD EP

    Hendricks The Hatmaker – S/T CD EP

    A brand new EP by Hendricks, The Hatmaker dropped last week, so now is more than appropriate time to write a couple of lines about it. I had a chance to review their previous recordings, so in hindsight, I knew what to expect. However, for those unfamiliar with this band, Hendricks The Hatmaker is a […]

  • Listen To Jameson Street By The Mahones

    Listen To Jameson Street By The Mahones

    Jameson Street – set for worldwide release on October 7, 2022 via True North Records, is like a guided tour down a cobblestone road in Dublin delivering a record packed with “positivity and good vibes”.  “Jameson Street is meant to make you feel like you’re having a night out,” frontman Finny McConnell explains. “No politics, no religion, […]

    We’re privileged to premiere Father & Son, a brand new video by Laraigné.

  • Premiere: Listen To Glad To Be Alive LP By Brook Pridemore

    Premiere: Listen To Glad To Be Alive LP By Brook Pridemore

    Fresh home from a US tour to a Brooklyn that was silenced by the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployed and unable to play live, Brook Pridemore was overcome with a flurry of middle-of-the-night songwriting. More intimate and unflinchingly honest than anything they’d written before, this batch of nascent songs painted snapshots of the most trying moments of […]

  • The Homeless Gospel Choir – Fourth Dimension Intervention CD (Don Giovanni Records)

    The Homeless Gospel Choir – Fourth Dimension Intervention CD (Don Giovanni Records)

    If someone asked you to explain the sound of The Homeless Gospel Choir, you would probably scratch your head for a while. The music seems overly simplistic, but on the contrary, there are layers of sound ready to be discovered by those experienced ears demanding something more than simplistic indie music. The fact The Homeless […]

    Flogging Molly Release Video For A Song Of Liberty

    Flogging Molly have joined forces with renowned Ukrainian animators/filmmakers, The Mad Twins, for the band’s “A Song of Liberty” video. The clip highlights humanity’s ongoing struggle against oppression, from Ireland’s Easter Uprising through several 20th century moments including both World Wars, to the current occupation of Ukraine. “We were working on this video for three months under air alerts and […]

  • Flogging Molly – Anthem LP (Rise Records)

    Flogging Molly – Anthem LP (Rise Records)

    Flogging Molly somehow managed to stay on top of the game over the years. From Swagger, their debut full-length that skyrocketed them to fame, over essentials like Drunken Lullabies, Within A Mile Of Home, Whiskey On A Sunday, and Float, and soon-to-be classics like Speed Of Darkness and Life Is Good, there are only a […]

  • Greg Laraigné – The Brightside Of It All LP (Snappy Little Numbers)

    Greg Laraigné – The Brightside Of It All LP (Snappy Little Numbers)

    At first, I thought this was a crust punk or a modern hardcore record. The entire visual identity made me think I will maybe experience an ultrafast, blackened, d-beat hardcore album stacked with hellish screams and shoutouts. After all, dotwork imagery and the theme pointed that out from the very beginning. It was strange considering […]
