REVIEW: Anthony Green – Beautiful Things

Artist: Anthony Green Album: Beautiful Things Genre: Indie/Folk Label: Photo Finish In need of a creative outlet outside of his band Circa Survive Anthony Green recorded Avalon.

REVIEW: Young Empires – Wake All My Youth EP

Artist: Young Empires Album: Wake All My Youth EP Genre: ‘World Beat/Haute Rock’ Label: Pirates Blend Records/World Hoye Records Young Empires are extremely fond of their hipster triangles.

REVIEW: Dia Frampton – Red

Artist: Dia Frampton Album: Red Genre: Indie Label: Universal Republic I hadn’t heard the name Dia Frampton before this review, but I certainly won’t be forgetting it now.
