Pine continue to take over with live performance of “Lopri”

Get Lost In Pine’s Little Elephant Performance Of “Letters”

Pine, an indie rock band from Ottawa, Canada is a band after my own heart. With their debut release “You Bury Me,” and following up with two more killer tracks off of a split with Dead Leaves, Pine are, in my opinion, one of, if not the band to watch in coming years. They blend […]

Foreign Tongues Release Chilling Video For “Little Doors”

Foreign Tongues released one of my favorite albums of the year with Fragile, As Said Before. In my review I state that “Fragile, As Said Before may be one of the strongest debuts in recent years, and that is simply because it plays nothing like one,” and this is most easily felt on “Little Doors.” […]
