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!

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 […]

Honcho Dreams by Be Calm Honcho: Vinyl Record Review

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.” […]
