Well Kept Things Release “Great White North” Video

The best pop-punk band to come out of Buffalo, New York this year has just released a new music video we know you’re going to love.

You may or may not know about Well Kept Things at this point, but if the rest of 2015 is anything like the first half of the year there is not a doubt in our minds the band will be everywhere in no time at all. Their sound is reminiscent of Just Surrender when they were at their best, only with the unique twist of lyrical sensibilities that can only be found in artists …

The wait is over, pop punk fans. After months of teasing and just two song premieres, Well Kept Things have shared a stream of their debut EP with the world.

Buffalo has proven to be a breeding ground for innovative new bands and Well Kept Things continue that trend with a unique indie spin on conventional pop punk that will have you singing along in no time at all. The album will be released properly tomorrow morning, June 16, but you might as well start …

The Kickdrums x Duckwrth

Duckwrth and The Kickdrums Release “Indica La Roux” Video

April 20, aka 4/20, seems like as good a time as any for The Kickdrums and Duckwrth to premiere the trippy video for their newest single, “Indica La Roux,” off their upcoming EP due out later this spring.

Secrets

Secrets Announce Acoustic EP, Stream Lead Single

Secrets released their sophomore studio album, Fragile Figures, back in 2013 via Rise Records. The album has been a commercial success, and helped catapult the band’s career. Since then the band has toured extensively, including appearances at Warped Tour and some international tours.

In recent years Rise Records has had a few of its artists release acoustic EPs, and their latest artist to join that list is Secrets. The group took the time to re-record stripped down versions of a couple of the singles off Fragile Figures. The EP is titled Renditions, and the first single off …

Incubus

Incubus “Trust Fall” Into Us With a Lyric Video

So Incubus is back, and without mercy. Just the other day, the band shared their first new song in years, titled “Absolute Calling.” The song was no shock and awe, as it seemed to be a continuance of the most recent work from the band.

But this time, with the release of the second song, “Trust Fall,” it sounds like they may have journeyed with a time machine back to the A Crow Left of the Murder era.

The song is a crazy six minutes long, that takes turns left and right, and is an exciting listen. If …

S. Carey

S. Carey Releases Beautiful EPK For ‘Supermoon’

If you hadn’t noticed, I LOVE S. Carey, especially his latest LP, Range Of Light.

With that, I am happy to say that his newly released EPK for the upcoming EP Supermoon, complements the atmopsheres touched on Range Of Light and grant the listener a better insight to where S. Carey finds his illumination, specifically in family and nature.

The near seven-minute video shows S. Carey traversing all fields of nature, commentating on how nature, and the wilderness can illuminate his music.

Noting that family has had a huge influence on Range Of Light, S. …

Nina Corcoran Best of 2014

Nina Corcoran’s ‘Best of 2014′ in Music

If there’s anything to be certain of when it comes to music, it’s that you can’t control when it strikes you. In a year filled with violence, racism, disease, and political stumblings, our brains were in overdrive trying to do the right thing. For most, music serves as an escape. It articulates emotions and brings events to life, painting the world in colors we simply don’t have physical copies of, transforming the way we experience life. That level of control keeps us from finding out how music is meant to best illustrate our lives. We have to give songs another …

Empty-Houses

The Next Band To Change Your Life: Empty Houses

If you have been following along to the Twitter chatter in the alternative music realm this week you have no doubt seen someone mention Empty Houses, the Detroit-based trio of Ali Shea, Adam Mercer, and Dave Mackinder (Fireworks). January is a busy time so it’s completely understandable if you didn’t have time to commit to the article those tweets hopefully included, or perhaps you did only to find you had no time to commit to the music in store. That’s fine. Social media has become a flood of ICYMI headlines as of late, so you’ll still have plenty of chances …
