There’s not much – if anything – about Migrant Motel’s “Shame” that would qualify as typical by mainstream standards. For example, take the hook in the chorus; David Stewart is pushing the vocal track hard into the synths in the background, but their clash is anything but discordant. They’re fused as one, peppered with a

Summoning the spirit of 2000’s hardcore, Dallas, Texas band Nygma has established a reputation for surrealistic lyrics, unorthodox guitar melodies, unpredictable shifts in tempo and rhythm, and wild stage presence. Burnie, Colten, and Caleb have been playing music together for close to 16 years, they’ve been in other bands together as well as touring the

Ideally, a collaboration between two artists teaches us something about both performers and what they have to share in a unique capacity. In the right circumstances, a track like “Buttercup” would have us get to know another side of Little Hurt that simply wasn’t accessible before coming into the same studio as a veteran performer

Adding to a credible discography when you’ve already got the kind of street value that racks up hundreds of thousands of streams online is a lot harder than it sounds on paper, but in their new single “Let’s Go,” Of Limbo are making it sound all too easy. The band’s sound has come a long

Vividly kaleidoscopic melodies spark “The Pathway,” one of them more instantly satisfying in David Raybuck’s The Prodigal, to life with an effervescence that the singer and songwriter will revisit in “Be Healed” and “Desert Ride,” but that said, there’s something really special about what we’re met with in this experiment in making harmony-powered pop endearing again.

Something akin to an impassioned whisper greets us as Sick Puppies lay into the devastating riff-rock of their latest single, “Ready, Steady, Go,” but the statement that the acclaimed Australian alternative band is trying to get across to their listeners in this brand new track is anything but muted.

Messer are living up to their promising handle and executing one of the sickest, slickest, and most stylish rock tracks that you’re going to hear this quarter in their official new single “Unfvckwitable.” Using a sonic vortex that originates from a sizzling bassline, “Unfvckwitable” sees its creators using every weapon in their war chest to

Instrumentally speaking, there’s conventionality in Little Hurt’s “Cooler If U Did” that can be a little difficult for some to get around, but this might be the point of the song’s deliberate framework. Rather than going with predictable on top of predictable, Little Hurt wants to illustrate his unique vocal abilities against a backdrop of

In quality rock, it all starts with the way the players address production. If there’s a good handle on what they want to make and the story they want to form out of the music they’re recording, there’s a strong chance that what we hear is going to be appealing, but those who choose to

In between the smoky melodies of “Walk Between the White Lines,” there lies a simple sense of Americana that stands as one of the most important elements of Chris St. John’s new album Fly Away. It’s neither forced nor filled with bravado, and yet it’s undeniably one of the most entrancing components of this tracklist, defining

With their current single clocking in at exactly 120 seconds, Tarah Who?, won’t be mistaken for Tool anytime soon. “Asian Blood” might suggest subject matter of a stereotypical nature, but it’s actually inspired by our relationship with the process of aging. For Tarah Who?, aging is examined from a female perspective, as they are a

There’s a familiar peacefulness to the way Corey Stapleton brings a harmony together, but I don’t know that I would call his new album with The Pretty Pirates, Sea Changes, a straight throwback. Songs like “New Me” and “As the Crow Flies” undeniably have an old school persona mostly due to the style of vocal that
