Crystal Fairy Album Review
Dale Crover and King Buzzo can do no wrong. The two have been the torch bearers for sludge metal for nearly 30 years, and have been doing it well. The duo have been flying under the radar, just high enough to get noticed, and long enough to influence a multitude of musicians and artists.

Kolars at Will’s Pub – Orlando
Kolars are one of the most compelling acts to hit the rock music landscape in recent memory. They serve up a delicious mix of distinctive music that is best described as Rockabilly Dance, or perhaps Danceabilly. And, as I witnessed earlier this week, they deliver an incendiary live show.

TBT Song of the Day – White Riot, The Clash
In 1977, while the rest of the world was listening to Fleetwood Mac and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, four London punks were about to turn the rock music world upside down. The angsty debut single, “White Riot” was a ferociously raw track that grabbed rock fans by the balls and screamed for attention.

A fun interview with Terry Clark of Carbon Leaf
I caught up with Carbon Leaf’s Terry Clark before the band’s recent show at a packed Social in downtown Orlando. As the band was preparing to embark on yet another Rock Boat excursion, we had a chance for a quick fun interview with the gregarious guitarist.

SOTD: Bokito – Better At Getting Worse
London five-piece Bokito have delivered one of the most interesting and compelling songs of the new year. Their music is almost impossible to pigeonhole, as you’ll hear on our Song of the Day, “Better At Getting Worse.” The band classifies themselves as Tropical-Indie. It’s not a perfect description, but we’ll go with that since nothing else really makes sense.

Teen Divorce – Almost Heaven EP Review
Jacksonville Florida emo/punk pop trio Teen Divorce dropped their self produced debut EP Almost Heaven, late this winter, in the midst of 2017 tour leg. The record has a unique and nostalgic feel despite a fairly modern indie sound. It’s heartfelt and almost accidentally catchy. Their music is obviously genuine and I see a lot of potential in their work as they move forward through upcoming tour dates and a future full length record.

Song of the Day: Rough Church
Rough Church formed in 2005 in Los Angeles. The band is a throwback of sorts to the forgotten 80s sound of melancholy and
nostalgia. They were signed to New Zealand’s PowerTool Records in 2006 and released their first five albums in the states on their own label Beautiful Workhorse Records.

Milky Chance Ego Single Review
A unique singing voice and clever lyrics highlight”Ego,” a catchy new tune from Milky Chance. The song makes the listener think; and anything today that requires thought is refreshing. Is the singer talking about his ego or someone special in his life? It comes across as both in a sort of stream of consciousness battle within his thoughts. Of course in the end it doesn’t really matter how we interpret the meaning. The band has forced the act of interpretation and that is much more valuable.
