Royal Ruckus

Royal Ruckus – Featured Artist

Royal Ruckus, ok, the name piqued my interest. I was super surprised and super pissed at the same time when I found out the group has been around for 19 years! I’m surprised because I’ve never heard of them until recently and pissed because I’VE NEVER HEARD OF THEM UNTIL RECENTLY! We had a chance […]

Me And My Shadow – Mutation – Review

We had the pleasure of reviewing this Midwestern duo last year in May. Check out our first take of Me And My Shadow right here. I like the band’s music very much. In fact, they remind me of living in St. Louis, MO, as a young chap. I know, that sounds weird but they have […]

Ninth Floor Mannequin

Ninth Floor Mannequin – Featured Artist

When I first discovered 9FM I mistakenly called him by the wrong name on a podcast. His music is so recognizable however that when I was reviewing submissions I remembered it immediately having only heard the song “The Company” a few times previously. Amazing stuff. It’s even more amazing when you discover some of the stories […]
