Here Are A Few Records That Gave Me A Lot Of Feelings In 2014

2014 marked the beginning of a lot of things for myself. I’d started my fourth year in college, worked my first real job, got my first real paycheck, joined Under The Gun’s incredible team, and began to get a good sense of the “real world.” For the most part, I’d say 2014 would’ve beaten 2013 […]

REVIEW: Front Porch Step – ‘Whole Again’

Artist: Front Porch Step Album: Whole Again EP Genre: Acoustic folk Label: Pure Noise Records I’ve grown to love the EP format over the years. When it’s properly executed, a shorter release offers a perfectly sized stopgap for fans between records, while giving the artist an opportunity to try new things in a sidestep from […]
