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. …

After an interesting campaign to slowly reveal artists for this year’s Bonnaroo, the full lineup has been revealed.

For those who haven’t been paying attention, or participating in the telethon-like reveals, the entirety of the lineup has been released in one nice giant blob of music.

An eccentric and diverse lineup to say the least, Billy Joel, Mumford and Sons, Against Me! Sylvan Esso, The War on Drugs and many, many more will take the stage this year. …

REVIEW: Black Beach – ‘Play Loud, Die Vol. 1′

Artist: Black Beach
Album: Play Loud, Die Vol. 1
Genre: Rock

I’m not entirely sure if I should be mad when listening to Massachusetts’ Black Beach, or somewhere between anger and serenity. See, Black Beach is a band that trucks their sound through the mud, funneled through distortion, static, anger, sludge, whatever. You name it, it’s there. But what holds all these tones together are melodies that flow beautifully with one another, creating a perfect balance of disgusting and peace. With bass lines flowing in between guitars drowned in their own reverb, drums pounding in the background, and vocals …
