Drones – Our Hell Is Right Here.

Throwing down the gauntlet is Drones, a band on the edge of oblivion, searching for solace in a world that is crumbling. Their ethos is rooted, and their hearts have been in it from the start too, connecting deeply with what they are trying to accomplish. What they are trying to achieve is a heart to heart with ...

Juana Everett – Move On

Move on. It's a phrase that carries the baggage of a command to move past situations and circumstances that are often negative. After all, if everything was great, there is no reason to leave.

Parsons' voice sits between the likes of Eric Church and Jason Aldean, but the songwriter is definitely more reflective of independent or Americana acts. The packaging doesn't do this ...

Kali Dreamer – Super Jr.

by zak Ever since the Because the Internet era, it seems like Childish Gambino has been on a mission to either find or evolve his style, especially from a vocal point of view. Toying around with pitches and octaves, Gambino has channeled an almost Jai Paul-like aura on his past two albums. There is no equation for when ...
