Guys, I’ve beefed up my blog a lot in the past couple of months and I will continue doing so. Since my interests and (possibly) talent grew, it’s about the right time for my blog to grow too. So, please comment on all your old favorite posts and see all new posts here at: […]

I am a DJ for my college radio station, WRHU, 88.7 FM. Clearly, I have a passion for music and communication. Last night, my co-host joined me for a one-night only reunion show (since he graduated last year and hasn’t come to visit). It’s been said that we have real chemistry on air and I […]

Now, while I’ve spent most of my life denying that I actually liked Valentine’s Day. I can not deny it anymore. I like it. I want to be a part of it. The music, the colors, the sentiment… I want it all! Here is a song that’s just lovely. Favorite Lyrics: You’re just my good […]

You know it’s going to be an emotionally trying day when you wake up with a emotionally-trying song already implanted in your head. That song is “Get Me Away From Here, I’m Dying” by Belle and Sebastian off of the album If You Are Feeling Sinister. I had to listen to it. I found it […]

I love Ratatat and I like Yacht remixes. So it is really no surprise when a short remix (loveeee short remixes) of these two powers came up that I dug it? (And dug it good). In true fashion, I put the song on repeat for roughly two hours. Now, maybe that’s not your style, but […]

This comes from a dear friend and co-writer of This is from a very happy-go-lucky sounding band by the name of Let’s Wrestle. The song is “I Won’t Lie To You”. The video, as you can see above, is fun, quirky and youthful. I miss the days of when I could go to basement […]

Anytime I don’t know what to listen to and my iPod is running out batteries, I go to old favorites. On YouTube. One of those go to favorites is: JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound’s “Baltimore Is the New Brooklyn” Personally, I love the dancers. Be prepared for more video finds. I think I’ll be […]

Nickel Eye – Time of the Assassins (Rykodisc) With a deep steady bass line, Nikolai Fraiture introduces himself as a solo performer (away from the Strokes). While his singing sounds lackadaisical, the bass line is tight and inviting. Mixing rock/pop with some folk and blues, Nickel Eye creates a sound different from the Strokes, but […]

Cotton Jones – Paranoid Cocoon (Suicide Squeeze) I know there are influences of blues rock, alt country and indie pop, but I still don’t know what Cotton Jones is! The opening track “Up This Tree (Went This Heart I Have),” starts with a simple bass line and the mysterious line of “all around, all around […]

With blues guitar solos, phrases and words as choruses, they bring back a classic style with some unclassy content. They have proclaimed themselves as the first real rock band of the 21st century. By the end of the album, any arguments regarding that statement are more difficult to defend. Kicking off with “Sea Level,” Howlies […]
