EP Review: The Bascinets – 378 Vol. 1

Just before a lineup change as drummer Trevor Joellenbeck joined The Bascinets, the Columbus indie-rock four-piece recorded a new jangle-pop EP, titled 378 Vol. 1.

After two years of radio silence, Bexley garage-rockers Wrath of Wednesday released its Musical Bears EP in July of 2017.

EP Review: RADATTACK – Montana Psychedelic Versus

Classifying themselves as “rock and roll muscle pop,” the boys in RADATTACK may be (for the most part) in high school, but they’ve already begun to make a name for themselves. The boys aren’t exactly inexperienced; almost all four of them have been participants in other Clintonville musical endeavors, including surf-punk band The Comos and Seth Peacock’s project Rat … More EP Review: RADATTACK – Montana Psychedelic Versus
