Guy Grogan offers a variety of rock on ‘Dynamite Bouquet’

Earlier this year, Santa Fe, New Mexico’s Guy Grogan released Dynamite Bouquet, a raw 10-track effort that traverses several areas of rock, but seems mostly rooted in garage-rock stlyings one might expect to be inspired by Ozma and early Weezer—although Grogan might shrug in indifference if met with this comparison. “Knowing what you sound like […]

Greaver stream intense new concept album ‘The Faun’

Concept bands are becoming a regular thing. Story-driven music can either be horribly cliche or can add a whole new layer of thought and texture to a band’s sound. Enter: Greaver, an aptly named five-piece post-hardcore band from North Carolina who have all the tools they need to deliver a much needed punch to the […]

saddle of southern darkness

Saddle Of Southern Darkness create evil country born from metal influences

For starters, Saddle Of Southern Darkness is easily one of the most bad-ass band names I’ve come across in some time. It immediately evokes a sense of ominous intent, something nefarious no doubt. Although the band’s music may not provide the heaviness one might suspect, given the name, it’s certainly inspired by it, and the […]

Rome Hero Foxes breathe new life into late-aughts post-hardcore with second LP

Mid-to-late 2000s post-hardcore is alive and well in 2016 and we have zero complaints, as long as it’s good of course. Luckily, when it comes to the work of Texas four-piece Rome Hero Foxes, it’s really damn good. Pleasingly reminiscent of genre favorites Saosin, HRVRD, Tides Of Man, PMtoday and newer acts in the vein […]
