Sugar and Gold is a five piece ensemble who hail from San Francisco.  Their sound can best be described as a fusion of electro-synth disco dance funk coupled with pop and rock.  I know, it sounds …

Los Angeles quintet Lower Heaven may have waltzed into one too many a dark unground club.  Having derived their name from the lyrics of Echo and the Bunnymen. They reverberate a sullen sad-core sound …

I fell for this album at first listen. I didn’t even have to listen all the way through; I was hooked by the first spare atmospheric guitar pluckings on the unfortunately-titled “Intro.” …

Bring me back to a time when reverb was king, and pop music was far-out as long as you could find it at the "happenin' record store." Pure Ecstasy has infused a smooth alternate universe type …

Rock Island is part of the Quad Cities, so it's not in the middle of nowhere. But it's not NYC, LA or Chicago for sure. Yet multiple times per week, Daytrotter in Rock Island has rising indie bands stop …

I've always really liked the The Blood Brothers. I don't know, the angular, cat-caught-in-a-blender screeches kind of worked for me for a long time. March On Electric Children was the jam. Two of its …

Like most of my favorite bands, Fugazi "disbanded" in 2002, which is right around the time I started to like them. FML, right? TOOOOO young to ever see them.      Regardless, …

Being a true hip hop head, I'm sure I wouldn't be off-base saying that the past decade was rather bland and uninspiring for the genre. And I'm willing to bet good money that most true hip hop heads will …

I am a sucker for 80's inspired rock cheese, and this indie was born from some sweet sweet cheese. Pop worthy lyrics and the aloof lead singer of all our dreams, Regrets for Brunettes brings us the debut …

I really like Snow Patrol mainly because they have a lot of power with their music.  I listen to their songs and I feel energized, so to speak.  It's like watching a movie where you really feel …
