After seeing Sleeptalk at a Tuned Up show and meeting a boy who’s borderline obsessed with them – not only does he run the band’s street team, but I once got a Snapchat of him covered in Sleeptalk stickers as a joke – I had high hopes for the band’s self-titled, out this Friday, July … More Album Review: Sleeptalk – Sleeptalk
Despite using the same two words for the band’s name, their album, and this EP, “Something Else?” is far less “traditional punk” than the Columbus band’s previous full-length. It alternates between acoustic and electrified, and although angsty lyrics run throughout the EP, Something Else utilizes catchy melodies and hypnotic hooks to capture your attention.

It’s a far cry from “Let’s Remake It” and “Red”, but it also seems to be much more true to the band’s image: sweet, poppy, and definitely catchy. … More EP Review: PUBLIC – Sweet Lemonade
Speaking of bands who play in the New York subway system, experimental post-rock group You Bred Raptors? has toured the boroughs (and North America) since 2015. Their unexpectedly vocal-less sound on “International Genetics” is somewhere between prehistoric and industrial, made only with edgy cello, a drum kit, and an eight-string bass. The album’s first impression … More Album Review: You Bred Raptors? – International Genetics
