Ringo Starr made the announcement via Twitter, writing “God bless George Martin. Peace and love to Judy and his family”. Martin’s career will, of course, be indelibly linked to the […]

I find it very hard to believe it’s been 11 years since we were introduced to Sufjan Steven’s Illinois album. Today we are lucky enough to be re-introduced to what was arguably his most mainstream song, “Chicago” in an early demo recording. Strumming guitar, beautifully sung melodies, layered synths and heartfelt lyrics make this song close to […]

I can’t believe my ears as I take in the tunes from the new hardcore “super-group” World Be Free! It seems like it’s been quite a while since the world has had the opportunity to take in new authentic melodic hardcore music with a positive message! No disrespect to NYHC icons H2O who put out […]

This weekend was my first time seeing WEEN live; it also happened to be their first reunion show after splitting apart 4 years ago. I’ll let you think about those two statements together for a second. via GIPHY And that’s exactly how it felt, my world colliding with an entirely other world, and neither are […]
