Album Review: Cigarettes After Sex – Cigarettes After Sex

In general, Cigarettes After Sex sounds exactly the way you’d expect them to after looking at a few album covers: smoky and thick ambient pop.

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.

If you like Columbus-based power pop band WALK THE MOON, you’re going to absolutely adore White Label Analog.
