Punk Perfection-Jakob Danger, Overclocked, and Ought

Wednesday seems like the perfect day to share something different. Well, except it is now Thursday….. The power of music continues to move me. My inbox surprised me with a few wild coincidences this week. Punk, Punk Pop, and Post Punk are flooding my ears lately, and I am really enjoying the change of pace…

Day Wave-Total Zombie

Time in between. Nothing really to celebrate this weekend, even though the media suggests to us at every turn, we should celebrate the Oscars. I am feeling the depths of winter frustration and locked in boredom. Yes, I have cleaned out my pantry (who knew I had cans from 2011?), read a book, trolled the…

Cherry Glazerr-Had Ten Dollarz

Why does stuff get in the way of beauty, passion, and the things that make your heart tick tock at that lovely, fluttery pace? Every day routines and wanting to change it up, can sometimes spark the assertion, “you look at me like I’m crazy….” Am I crazy, or is it that we are all…

Sun Kil Moon-I Can’t Live Without My Mother’s Love

Today is my mother’s birthday. As I reflect on her sweet nature and loving motherly ways, I realize that I have almost been without her as long as I had her in my life. She left me way too soon, and I will forever have a vacant spot in my heart. A blank spot that…

Well, the happy accident of finding this band has helped me find some solace in the universe for today. Good, good, good. Accidents can actually be pleasant and meaningful. The…

Craft Spells-Breaking The Angle Against The Tide

Mood Monday. Love at first listen. This is Craft Spells and their new single, “Breaking The Angle Against The Tide”.  Sad lyrics surrounded by strings and melodies that seem to suggest the opposite. A song in contrast that steals your attention and convinces you that the new LP, Nausea, is worth a listen. Yes, yes…

Totoake-Make It Work (Demo)

Twangy guitar, hazy fuzz distortion, and “ooh baby” choruses all remind me that summertime is just around the corner. Yes….finally. The sun will once again shine warmly and soothe the cold frosty memories of a brutally harsh winter. Okay, harsh for Atlanta. I can’t really even complain when compared to the northeast or the midwest….
