matthew reveles 700

by Mark Anderson

Matthew Reveles and Fancy Cloud are back with their new, 2019 album, Split.

Released through Phoenix’s President Gator Records, this is the latest proper album from Reveles/Cloud since 2013’s New Year, New Jacket (also released through President Gator) and the first release for the label this year. Plus, after keeping us barely satiated over the years with singles released through his Soundcloud, it’s great to have an actual full length from Reveles again — something not seen since a decade ago with his stellar We’ll Meet Halfway album…Read More →

blood feud family singers 700

I’m rather partial to the Noir Americana of The Blood Feud Family Singers. Maybe it’s because I lean toward pensive and melancholy by my very nature. Or maybe it’s because life’s handed me a shit run of luck once or twice so I’ve definitely had a good look at the underside over other people’s shoes.

You just have to hit play…Read More →

by Carly Schorman – Of The Valley “Italy” Brian DellaValle, the songwriter behind Of The Valley, divides his time between Copenhagen and Toronto, but hopefully he’ll put a stateside tour on his to-do list because I’m so obsessed right now. “Italy” conveys a certain stolen intimacy; like a secretly witnessed exchange ofRead More →

Old Nobodaddy “Gun is Coming” Yesssss. “Gun is Coming” is the stellar single from the New Orleans-based songwriter known as Old Nobodaddy. The track combines a stripped down lyricism with a compelling “swamp gospel” sound that goes straight for the center of your being.  This track comes to us from Nobodaddy’sRead More →

broken horse title

by Frank Ippolito Associate Editor Tell me your vibe is Psyche/Death Rock with retro Jazz/Country and you have my attention. Alex Oropeza (guitars/vocals), “Yuma Joe” Byrnes (drums) and Bill Cuevas (bass) execute this sound, by the way, and they had my complete and utter absorption from the very first drop ofRead More →
