Lena Fayre debut LP on wax

After experiencing her first full length album, it’s obvious that Lena Fayre listens to a lot of modern radio and experiences a lot of sadness.  Put these two influences together and you have the main ingredients for the album “OKO.”  Starting off with a blatantly poppy, radio friendly electro sound, Lena then moves into more […]

Review of Vinyl Subscription Services

Facing extinction like its cousin, the 8-track, the vinyl record has been saved from utter decimation due to the hard work and diligence of conservationists, enthusiasts and revivalists.  And recent surveys say people are getting into the whole vinyl idea more and more.  As they should.  Vinyl is the best way to experience un-live music.

Vinyl Sales Shatter Last Year’s Record

As the momentum with vinyl sales continues to only grow, the real question we’re all asking ourselves is whether or not vinyl will hit a critical mass and become a mainstream format, once again.

VINYL IS GOING HOCKEY STICK

After all these years of musical device progression, it’s really no wonder that vinyl is still the best. Sounds better, looks better, feels better, everything about vinyl is magic! It may be in the way that sound waves are etched into grooves of polyvinyl chloride, or it may be the way those ol’ dusty records […]

Doon Womp by Opusoid: Vinyl Record Review

This album challenges the ordinary expectations of sound. Opusoid, a multi-instrumental, improvisational performer creates music from the odd recesses of the mind, alluding to noises and experiences not commonly displayed in rock music, but highly emphasized in more experimental electronic music. In some way, with his guitar, loop pedals and beat makers, Opusoid traverses the […]

Live From The Burning Room by Brother Grand: Vinyl Record Review

Full disclosure: I have a big soft spot for stringed instruments. The bigger, the better. And the April 2014 album from Feedbands includes one very large, very present upright bass. It’s just beautiful. The band, Brother Grand, is a duo consisting of two multi-instrumentalists, and this album, Live from the Burning Room, is, well, live […]

Mammoth Indigo by Mammoth Indigo: Vinyl Record Review

I might need to get another copy of this record because I’m pretty sure I’m going to wear down the grooves on this one way too quickly. I am in love. This self-titled album from a group called Mammoth Indigo is definitely a new favorite. They have elements that remind me of a lot of […]

Honcho Dreams by Be Calm Honcho: Vinyl Record Review

May 2014’s album is Honcho Dreams by Be Calm Honcho (an odd name, but it works.) Their sound has a surf rock, jam band feel to it. Each song is carefully constructed, which I appreciate. There’s obvious talent, creativity, and intention. The album opens with an energetic, jolting riff—the repeating phrase in “Always My Fault.” […]
