Reise LAKE (deluxe)

Reise Music – Lake (Deluxe) – Review

Reise, (pronounced rī-sə) is an artist that is influenced by New Wave, Synth Pop, Punk, Post-Punk and more. Man, I’m listening to this as I start the review and so many thoughts are flooding into my head.

Paper Nautilus – Album Review

Who knows what a Paper Nautilus is? Yeah, I didn’t either until I came across this band and was forced to look it up. Cool band name but I ran across a problem. When I look up the name, all I see is stuff about octopuses…but aside from that the music rocks. The band says […]

Jour Majesty

It does not take long to realize that Jour Majesty has something special going. These days, many bands in the country-pop genre seem formulaic and repetitive, with each song a similar variation of singular theme. Not so with Jour Majesty (JM). Although there is a distinctive sound common to all their compositions, partially due to […]
