This kid’s gettin’ punked by a shark! Or is it a koala? I dunno.

“Who We Touch” by The Charlatans – Album Review

Wow. This album begins with a startling crash that jolts you into giving it all your damn attention. It burst out like it’s the end of a song that’s already built up to the loudest peak, only it’s just the beginning. I like it. I would think the sound of the song “Love Is Ending” […]

Your experienced music mind might think I’m talking about trippy psychedelic sounds but that is not the case with Eternal Summers’ debut full-length album “Silver.” Some how this duo’s creations make me feel hypnotized with their poppy upbeat tunes. After hitting play I don’t want to write […]
