B-Eazy

B-Eazy – The Lonely Stoner

Okay, he sounds a lot like Big Boi. Even the music on “Peter Parker” takes us back to the golden Dungeon Family days of “Southerplayalisticadillacmuzik”. B-Eazy is no biter, however. Listen a little closer and you will hear his many other influences as well as his originality. On “Must Be Da Drugz,” B-Eazy flows with […]

Paul Golian – Seasoned Folk Music

Folk, Country, Alternative…all words that can be used to describe the music of GoLian. Apparently Paul took a 30 year break from music. I must admit, it’s good to have him back. He brings a fresh yet seasoned perspective to the alternative/indie scene of today. When I hear his music I instantly think 1960’s folk in […]

Luanne Hunt – Texas Tears

Luanne Hunt One thing that surprises me throughout the song are the backing vocals. Sometimes voice tracks are sung with lyrics and other times with “ahs”. They are not necessarily sung in unison with Luanne, yet all the voice parts sound perfectly placed. They were enjoyable to listen to, and compliment the whole song’s feel. […]

After Alice – Mourning – Single Review

“Mourning” is one of the songs the band is pushing on their Soundcloud page. First impressions: It’s very low in volume. To me it sounds like it needs a little better mastering. I listened to a few other tracks on their page and those seemed much louder and more present. After Alice – Mourning Overall […]

9FM: Green And Blue For Blackness

You see, Jarrod was running one day and was hit by a drunk driver to which he has no memory. He was in a coma for days to which he finally awoke from. To this day he says that he can’t feel parts of his body, can’t taste, can’t smell but he says, “I’m ok with […]

Mandabrat Summer Rain

MandaBrat – Summer Rain – Single Review

Why? Because I spent many years of my mid-20s in Chicago’s underground house music scene. Lego, Felix Da Housecat, DJ Sneak (who’s cousin I’m close friends with) were just a few I followed in the scene…so when “Summer Rain” started playing, I became instantly nostalgic. MandaBrat Review – Summer Rain Chillaxin This track sounds exactly […]

MandaBrat – Always There – Review

A female voice is chosen and the mixing/mastering quality is phenomenal. The song begins with a beat that seems to reflect native African culture. I get the sense that at some points the exquisite (multiple armed) Opera Singer from The Fifth Element movie is going to join in to compliment the wonderful singing. The actress/singer […]
