EP Review: Something Else – Something Else

Columbus alt-rockers Something Else have produced yet another self-titled work, released on January 4, 2019, though this one seems to be a reworking of some of their older music. A few songs are familiar, and this time around, they are also more mature. The sound of Something Else‘s seven tracks is an unapologetic, emotional one, and the polished … More EP Review: Something Else – Something Else

Interview: The Zeroes

EP Review: Tiger Mimic – Elephant Skeleton

Even as an unsigned indie group, Tiger Mimic‘s sound on their debut EP, Elephant Skeleton, is unforgettable. The alternative rock music contained in its five tracks is modern, cool and nothing if not unique, and it is more and more enthralling as each second passes. The music on Elephant Skeleton shifts with every song, but it all nestles … More EP Review: Tiger Mimic – Elephant Skeleton

Miss Information Aged has plenty to offer in the form of fascinating hooks and catchy melodies through its ten psych-rock tracks. The first few tracks are irresistibly … More Album Review: Eldren – Miss Information Aged

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. Dropped in July, the five-track record fits perfectly with both its summer release and these rainy almost-fall days; the bright guitar melodies are just sunny enough to blow away the fog.
