250 word album review: Nathan Kalish - I Want To Believe

Nathan Kalish has no problem embracing his country soul. The twangy guitars and vocals simply don’t lie. Kalish pops out a new record every now and then in between touring to check in with the non bar-goers and his latest is a polished collection he’ll be glad to sell while closing down bars across the country. 229 more words

250 word album review: Toward Space - The Bomb That Fell

Toward Space’s latest EP “The Bomb That Fell” is very informal. It’s unapologetic and raw. The seven lo-fi songs aren’t all cut from the same cloth either, each one sees the band spread their wings in a different direction. 187 more words

250 word album review: Nick Waterhouse - Never Twice

The book is out on Nick Waterhouse and now he is settling in to a career of perfecting his sound. That distinct sound is taken straight out of 50s and while Waterhouse isn’t the only artist tracking songs like this, he is clearly among the best. 227 more words
