Hubbell Mountain - Stereoscope

Visceral and exciting, Hubbell Mountain’s new album, illustrated by the well-known LA artist Brendon Monroe (good freaking grab, guys, I love his work), grabs us by the chest and digs its roots deep inside us. With hi-fi precision and ingenious production quality, this [virus] collection next fuses with our arteries and starts to pump its serious mind-numbing juices into our bloodstream, and finally, after trying to rip our own hearts out, to no avail I assure you, it drowns us in its own frothy, pneumonic harmony; lulling us to our final sleep in a bath of melancholic and deeply personal dreams.

SPACETRON: A New Concertgoing Experience @ SPACELAND BALLROOM 8/24

José Oyola is a creature of the stage, there is no doubt about it! His love of live performance and theatrics has caused him to concoct SPACETRON, an event that is more than just another concert. It will basically be a giant carnival party with crazy lights, smoke machine, face painting, kaleidoscope making, photobooth, LED hula hoop performance, and just an all around amazing time.

Dance, Charlatan! - Held at Bay Track Review

Sweet melodic indie pop fills the width of "Held at Bay", a new track from Dance, Charlatan! "Marked is a man, and his principles too, when the problem at hand is a drunk love for you" are the first words of the sweet love song, which shifts between easy-going to fill force rock. This is a promising track from a band with only one other track available on their bandcamp.
Our ears are open, Dance, Charlatan! Now give us more tunes!

Matt Gouette "Sunnyside" Review

A “pure pop rock genius” is the only way to describe New London rocker Matt Gouette. It seems like everything he touches turns to gold.

"Keep It In Good Shape" - An Interview with Brian Grochowski

Brian Grochowski is a real renaissance man. One could say he has his finger in a lot of pies. I had the opportunity to ask Brian some questions about all the bands he is in, as well as some of the details of his "1 album a month for the rest of 2013" project.

Jacket Thor - Sirens Will Guide Me

So I’m out in Rhode Island for the week horse and housesitting, and this album, Jacket Thor's Sirens Will Guide Me, has been dominating half of my music listening here. Zen like an afternoon nap, these songs can get me going in the midst of most anything; seriously, its borderline virtually impossible to be unhappy while listening to them, even when the lyrics are pointing to death and our inevitable and constant existential crisis.
