Matt Kivel-Insignificance

Mood Monday. It has a chill vibe, especially with the full harvest moon displaying its prettiness. There are lots of myths and legends around the moon not being a very chill sign. The full moon is commonly associated with the appearance of werewolves, the crazy, extreme emergencies, and unusual amounts of crime and chaos. Actually,…

Spanish Gold-One Track Mind

Mood Monday. Sometimes, I love a throwback solid rock sound. Last Friday night, it came to me, up close and personal. The concert, at The Earl, was filled with Friday night jam tunes and mega-talent. The band, Spanish Gold, made  a perfect night out on the town to see Water Liars (see earlier post here),…

Phospherescent

Don’t judge a band by the lead singer’s shoes. Well, okay in this case, maybe you should. (Must see picture attached) Matthew Houck stepped out among the vases of flowers and the lingering incense to sing and play onstage in Atlanta, GA.  It was incredible. All the hype is real and he proved it, as…

Chris Zurich-The Sounds

Sometimes, I come across a new song that makes me pause and listen. This is one of those times. The song is aptly named “The Sounds” and the artist is Chris Zurich. Chris Zurich is Philadelphia based and has a musical background, but the album, Black Ink, is his most recent project. It was released…
