The Matches Are Back And Better Than Your Favorite Band

REVIEW: Eden The Cat – Live In A Basement Apartment

Artist: Eden The Cat
Album: Live In A Basement Apartment
Genre: Folk, Acoustic

The best music hits you like a drug. It rolls over your body with a sensation that can only be compared to the first drag on a much needed cigarette or the first sip of that whiskey you’ve been thinking about since lunch. You get high off great music. A high, I might add, that no amount of liquor, weed, smoke, or pills is ever going to replace. Great music puts you in a state of intoxication so entirely satisfying you don’t need anything else to be …

Incubus “Trust Fall” Into Us With a Lyric Video

So Incubus is back, and without mercy. Just the other day, the band shared their first new song in years, titled “Absolute Calling.” The song was no shock and awe, as it seemed to be a continuance of the most recent work from the band.

But this time, with the release of the second song, “Trust Fall,” it sounds like they may have journeyed with a time machine back to the A Crow Left of the Murder era.
