Paul Turner – Clear Blue

Written by Nate Smith When one thinks of Australia, a narrow minded person such as my self dreams of Crocodile Dundee. Australians also avidly play cricket; a game I enjoy watching but can not understand. Australia also holds a few hidden gems. One of these gems resides in the musical form of Paul Turner. Paul’s […]

Norma Jean “The Anti-Mother”

Written by Courtney Fry As the first chords of the opening track “Vipers, Snakes and Actors” graced my eardrums, I knew I was going to enjoy this album. The familiar throaty roar of vocalist, Corey Brandan, transported me back to the 2002 release Bless the Martyr… despite the primal growls coming across clearer and sharper, […]

Gavin Rossdale “Wanderlust”

Written by Christa Sagmoe As some of you might know Gavin Rossdale released his first solo album on June 1st, 2008. I have to say before listening to it I was a bit skeptical. I wondered if Rossdale would be able to hold onto the same sound and magnetism that he had when he was […]

Between the Two – The Depths of You

BAND: Between the Two | SONG: Deeper Still When the 80’s meets the 90’s people often think of grunge. But what if you mixed the sound of 80’s metal and 90’s alternative? Then on your plate would lie "The Depths of You" by Between the Two.  As the cd opens you’re not sure what to […]

The Republic Tigers -Keep Color

There is a new indie band on the scene that deserves some serious props. The Republic Tigers released their first album, Keep Colors, on May 6th and since then I’ve been pretty much listening to it non-stop. Their style could mostly be compared to Keane Hopes & Fear mixed with Pinback Autumn of the Seraphs. […]
