Sometimes after waiting through two openers who were not on the bill you’re somewhat prejudiced towards the third opener, who was also not on the bill. This almost happened to me when Hydra Melody came on stage last Wednesday night, opening for Tilian at The White Swan Live. I rolled my eyes as their full […]

You just never know where you’ll find new music to enjoy, this time, we’re importing all the way from Little Rock, Arkansas. Knox Hamilton is an alternative band who is currently on tour with indie folk group Grizfolk.

2016 is here and it’s time to get into some new music. If you like Arctic Monkeys or The Kooks, Cage The Elephant might be for you. Rock music from Kentucky? I’m not kidding. These guys have been producing indie rock for the past decade. They made a name for themselves in England, with their […]

Youngblood Hawke, the indie band from So Cal, has been a little AWOL for the past year. Enough so to bring up questions, but not enough to concern the fans. Their debut album, Wake Up, put them on the map with the indie pop scene in 2013, especially so with their single “We Come Running.” […]

I’m always looking for new music to get stuck in your head, so this week I bring you Flor! These West Coast musicians are currently touring the Midwest with Coin and Colony House. Their sound is about as indie pop as it gets, similar to artists like Magic Man or CRUISR. Their music is the kind […]

Wildcat! Wildcat! is one of those bands that you see listed for things, winning awards, playing shows, opening for people, releasing music, but you never really listen to them. Sure, all the bands they’re playing shows with are similar to bands you like, but why bother. And yes, all of your favorite bands say they’re […]

Another band to get stuck in your head, coming up! This week: Gemini Club. This four piece from Chicago might be a little different from what you’re used to as their electronic rock style is hard to duplicate and therefore pretty contagious.
