Album Review: Riverhorse – Who Gets The Last Laugh On Doomsday?

There’s something haunting about the indie folk music on Riverhorse’s debut album, Who Gets The Last Laugh On Doomsday?.

Album Review: Damn The Witch Siren – Red Magic

In Columbus, the name “Damn The Witch Siren” is synonymous with dark, sexy bubblegum pop. The band, who has been releasing music since 2014, has established a strong fanbase with its intense “witch rock,” and its latest album, Red Magic, has garnered even more praise.

Album Review: Vundabar – Smell Smoke

Vundabar’s Smell Smoke, out February 23, is addictingly dark post-punk. With sticky melodies that needle their way into your brain and nearly-chaotic guitar riffs, there’s a grunginess and a melancholy energy on each cathartic track that leaves you wanting more. Vundabar tears its way through ten riveting rock songs on Smell Smoke, beginning with “Acetone”. Bright chords and … More Album Review: Vundabar – Smell Smoke

EP Review: The Cabin Fever – Exercise The Demon

The Cabin Fever‘s latest EP, “Exercise The Demon”, balances catharsis and slowness with dreamy, shoegazey rock. Beautiful string arrangements glide just beneath fuzzy guitar and husky vocals in tracks that are riddled with dark, desolate lyrics, and the eight alt-rock songs are nothing short of haunting. “Exercise The Demon” opens with “B-L-S-H”, a spooky rock ballad … More EP Review: The Cabin Fever – Exercise The Demon

Little Thoughts is a brand-new monthly guest post series where music fans and writers cover three albums, new or old, that they think deserve to be heard.
