Baby FuzZ

Welcome To The Future

Album Review

2020/08/07

Following up on 2019's debut album Plastic Paradise, Baby FuzZ is preparing to release his sophomore concept album Welcome To The Future. The first single "Weekend Blues" was an bopping satirical take on working all week and then not really having anything to look forward to on the weekend.

With the full album set to drop later this fall, we got a surprise second track released showing us that Baby FuzZ will not be pigeon holed into one genre. "We're All Gonna Die!!!" would be depressing if it wasn't so fun to listen too. With all proceeds from the song supporting Doctor's Without Borders

Having written with and for a wide variety of artists such as...

Space

Album Review

2020/07/01

Hailing from Chicago, IL, Time Thieves will be dropping their debut album, SPACE, this Friday, July 3rd. Look for it on CD and Digital formats on Anxious and Angry Records.

A super group of local musicians, each successful on their own, they realized this is the right time to come together to release this collaborative album. Pulling at the vibe of 90's alt rock, it reminds the listener of early Weezer.

"Message", the albums third track, has a catchy riff...

The Wise Man's Fear

Valley of Kings

Album Review

2020/05/29

The Wise Man's Fear latest album, Valley of Kings, is set to drop this Friday, May 29th. The Metalcore / Fantasycore band, originating from Indianapolis, IN, will be their first release through SharpTone Records.


The album showcases the band's range, with super heavy hitting songs like "The Cave", and contrasting softer metal ballad type songs such as, "The River and the Rock". All well written songs and none feel like filler. The song, "The River and the Rock" was perfectly placed as the 7th track, as it gives...

Death Throes

Album Review

2020/03/13

MOTIVES new 2020 album, Death Throes, which drops Friday, March 13th is a super emotional and engaging piece from start to finish. The hard rock/post-hardcore band from Cleveland, Ohio brings the heaviness to your ears with not only relatable lyrics but also the flowing riffs, powerful breakdowns, and an emotional ride of varying emotions from start to finish.

This 11 track post-harcore masterpiece has a song for every feeling ranging from life struggles such as self image in "If The Accident Will" to the constant mental battles of ones self which are emphasized in Track 5 "Burn Through Me". My first time listening through the album was a rollercoaster in my own thoughts of past experiences in my life that seemed to have a matching track that describes exactly how I felt at that given time... ...

I Disagree

Album Review / Tour Preview

2020/01/10

I Disagree is the name of the latest offering from Poppy . It's an edgy release that combines elements of techno, synth-pop, rock and industrial. Yet somehow all these elements blend perfectly as each track takes on its own unique sound.

Beyond the individual musical experiences of each songs instrumental, looking deeply into the lyrics you can see a connectivity that jumps out when you know the events happening in her personal life.

While Poppy's "sudden" break from her long time partner and collaborator may have been a shock and surprise to most of us, it's is evident in her words that she was not happy...

Tegan and Sara

Hey, I'm Just Like You

Tour Review

2019/10/17

As soon as you enter the theatre you realize that this is not going to be your "typical" Tegan and Sara show. You're greeted by a full size poster stating that photography and video recording are prohibited at the performance.

The usually photo friendly twins have something different in mind for this tour.

Celebrating and supporting the recent release of their latest album, "Hey, I'm Just Like You" and the publication of their first book, "High School", they are telling us through songs and readings the gritty truth of their teenage years.

It is an emotional journey. Unfortunately, we find out that even as adults words can still hurt...
