Album Review: Andy Suzuki & The Method – The Glass Hour

Sometimes, you get to discover a band in a seriously cool way. In this case, I quite literally stumbled upon Andy Suzuki & The Method – I was on my way downtown and walked past a pop-up show in a New York City subway station. Immediately, I was hooked, running back to get a glimpse … More Album Review: Andy Suzuki & The Method – The Glass Hour

Album Review: The Dream Eaters – We Are A Curse

In ten spine-tingling tracks, We Are A Curse is the latest dreamy indie pop record from The Dream Eaters. It’s not your typical synth-and-airiness, though: there’s a tangy, sour taste that accompanies the otherwise soft songs that brings a fresh take to the genre. It’s the band’s first full-length, released on April 14, and it promises … More Album Review: The Dream Eaters – We Are A Curse

Album Review: MisterWives – Connect The Dots

In a swirl of chalky pastel and glowing electric neon, MisterWives’ newest, Connect The Dots, is the exact opposite of a “sophomore slump”. Out tomorrow and packed with eleven upbeat tracks, this bold album is a colorful indie pop picture of independence and confidence. Right from the get-go, Connect The Dots makes an excellent first impression with Machine, … More Album Review: MisterWives – Connect The Dots

Album Review: Diet Cig – Swear I’m Good At This

There’s something incredibly inspiring about a band who owns their sound completely, who does things their own way and isn’t afraid to tell you exactly how they’re feeling. Combine that with a somehow-delicate pop-punk sound, and you’ve pretty much got my dream band – in this case, Diet Cig and their debut album, Swear I’m Good … More Album Review: Diet Cig – Swear I’m Good At This

EP Review: The Cartographers – Behind Your Eyes

When you see “indie rock” in a band’s description, it’s hard to know exactly what you’re going to get, because it’s such a wide genre. I wasn’t sure what to expect when it came to The Cartographers, but with influences like Jukebox The Ghost and Fall Out Boy, I was prepared to love the band’s Behind … More EP Review: The Cartographers – Behind Your Eyes

Album Review: The Graphics – Over and Over

Here in Columbus, we’re stuck in that weird springtime weather where one day, it’s sunny and warm enough to eat lunch outside, and others, there aren’t enough sweatpants in the world to warm you up. The solution for this constantly-changing weather is obviously some upbeat, summery music – like The Graphics’s Over and Over. This album … More Album Review: The Graphics – Over and Over

EP Review: Jetty Bones – Crucial States

All I could think on my way to Baltimore this weekend was, “How have I not written about Kelc yet?!”. One of my favorite musicians who just so happens to be a good friend, Kelc Galluzzo is the mastermind behind post-punk/pop-rock project Jetty Bones. In person, Galluzzo is cool, energetic, and just about as colorful as her ever-changing hair – and her music is an excellent reflection of that spunk. … More EP Review: Jetty Bones – Crucial States
