Everlast’s “The Life Acoustic”: Lazy and Uneventful

Everlast’s (real name: Erik Schrody) 1998 hit What It’s Like was so wildly popular that plenty of people who DIDN’T know what it was like still learned all the words before they realized that the song’s finger-pointing-but-non-judgmental lyrics were aimed at them.

REVIEW: Swedish groove metal act The Quill show their rock determination on “Tiger’s Blood”

Remember how alternative (whatever the hell that means) music used to rock? Not the crap that is “radio-friendly”, but the stuff that used to really kick ass.

Day Joy’s “Go To Sleep” Will Let You Do Anything But

Florida based duo Day Joy have just released a new LP titled Go To Sleep, Mess.  My only advice is not to fall asleep too quickly. While the tone and mood of this debut work is gently mellow and calming, it is absolutely riddled with delicate production nuances and rich textural harmonies. A midst the swooning … Continue reading Day Joy’s “Go To Sleep” Will Let You Do Anything But
