“Belly of the Lion” by Ola Podrida (Film Score Composer, David Wingo) – Album Review

When thinking of film scores, bold, dramatic instrumental tracks that pack punch and presence come to mind. You think John Williams’s “Star Wars” or Hans Zimmer and “The Lion King.” Likely a musician whose album is drawing comparisons to Iron and Wine and Bon Iver wouldn’t be thought of in the same category as the […]

“Luna” by The Aliens – Album Review

I’m spiraling on a sound-wave of musicianship with a harmonica on my way through a gliding rock tune called “Bobby’s Song.” This 10-minute musical track is broken down into various branches of stylistic blends from the 60s past with touches of modern wonder.

“Idol Omen” by Glass Ghost – Album Review

Now this is some straight up chill music. Check out this awesomely creepy Brooklyn duo Glass Ghost. As I listened to their debut album “Idol Omen,” at times it felt like the soundtrack to a dark fairytale with its growing  influx of pounding drums and magical chimes. Front-man Eliot Krimsky sings with a haunting falsetto […]
