6/12/2018

Travis Meadows - First Cigarette

4/2/2018
More
We all know the country music songwriter's recipe: start with a stretch of hardscrabble backstory, mix in some bad luck with the ladies, stir the bottom of the bottle around, maybe sprinkle in a stint in the pokey for good measure. Rinse. Repeat.

Genesis - Foxtrot

2/18/2018
More
It's a safe to say that if you have been pushing out music for the past 51 years, you've probably got a little something for everyone. It's also a pretty good chance that not everything in your catalog is going to elicit the same enthusiasm from all audiences.

More

The Decendents - Milo Goes To College

12/18/2017

The Cure - Bloodflowers

12/12/2017
More
It's kind of a trick question: when your band sounds a little gloomy to begin with, how can your audience tell when you're despondent?
