Hospital Ships – Lonely Twins

Reviewed by Nate Smith We’re living in an era with bad music that record producers keep shoving in our faces. On “Lonely Twins” by Hospital Ships I was excited to hear a fresh new sound that not only captured my ears but left me with a taste of wanting more. Hailing from the small college […]

Texas in July – One Reality

Texas in July (Equal Vision Records) brings it so heavy you’ll even feel it when your dead. Their new record “One Reality” is full of skill, force, and an overall sense of something great.

Weezer – Hurley

It’s hard to hate Weezer and at times hard to love them. After the “Blue Album” we cant help but be fans for life waiting for that record that will top it.

I cant say it’s better than “The Blue Album” or Pinkerton but I like it more that the last few albums they put out.
