    Burning Brides - Anhedonia

    Burning Brides - Anhedonia

    Burning Brides
    Anhedonia
    Label: CobraSide Distribution

    A hard rockin’ trio pumping out a flavorful spin on heavy alternative rock with a heavy hand in the low end grooves and a droning swagger filled with post punk angst and profound awareness. “Anhedonia” means the inability to gain pleasure from enjoyable experiences.

    Venus On Earth
    Label: M80 Music

    Have you been searching for 60’s retro Cambodian pop rock with a psychedelic slur and female vocals? Then look no further than this flamboyant Los Angeles-based group to fulfill your need!

    Eivind Opsvik
    Overseas III
    Label: Loyal Label

    Classic straight jazz turned into an ambient field and then nudged with noise, progressive elements and a few electronica glitches. This Norwegian born and NYC based composer records and plays live with a 4-piece ensemble called Overseas.

    Deadly Passions
    Label: DR2 Records

    Smart, sexy, determined and connected (they scored a Pepsi gig off their demo!), this well fueled metal outfit struts their stuff with a stunning female presence in front and a furious musical appeal in tow.

    Leatherwolf - New World Asylum

    Leatherwolf - New World Asylum

    Leatherwolf
    New World Asylum
    Label: Self Released

    Megadeth meets Metal Church in this surprisingly good thrash attack throwback. With Mustain-like vocals and kick ass catchy riffs n chops this release will certainly stress my neck well into the future.

    Legendary Shack Shakers - Swampblood

    Legendary Shack Shakers - Swampblood

    Legendary Shack Shakers
    Swampblood
    Label: Yep Rock Records

    Wailing hillbilly psycho swamp rock with a gothic snicker and a bluesy swagger showing off the strange and soulful American South. This is the third and final installment of the “Tentshow Trilogy.” Git sum!

    Gemini Sun Records Presents
    Live!
    Label: Gemini Sun Records

    Taking 4 of their highest selling new age artists, David Arkenstone, Loren Gold, Nicholas Gunn and Johannes Linstead, and pairing them together in a CD and DVD combo package is formulated to be a sure bet for this label. I pretty much agree

    Mike Zito - Today

    Mike Zito - Today

    Mike Zito
    Today
    Label: Eclecto Groove Records

    Soulful bluesy roots rock combined with pop singer/songwriter mischief. Zito got into music at an early age and has a veteran attitude to compliment. The vocal delivery strikes me as having a Dave Matthews-ish sashay layered in an adult-contemporary musical playground.

    Neverdie - no ROCK uN ROLLed

    Neverdie - no ROCK uN ROLLed

    Neverdie
    no ROCK uN ROLLed
    Label: Club NEVERDIE Records

    Generally cheeky and heavily sample-induced dance music from Club Neverdie, the most famous (and highest grossing) virtual nightclub in the world. Neverdie also happens to be the avatar of multi-talented singer/songwriter John Jacobs who is at the forefront of this new wave of nightlife entertainment.

    Melvins
    Nude With Boots
    Label: Ipecac Recordings

    Repeating the lineup of their prior release, King Buzzo and crew blast through a perky platter of lowbrow musical adjectives and adverbs to arise victorious and refreshed after the 872nd year of the band’s existence. Viva La Melvins!

    Mock Orange - Captain Love

    Mock Orange - Captain Love

    Mock Orange
    Captain Love
    Label: Wednesday Records

    Casting an indie rock aura for meters in all directions, this tried and true band has weathered thru a lawsuit from George Lucas (for their Dead Droid Record Label) and come out crafty, quirky and generally plucky.

    Natalia Zukerman - Brand New Frame

    Natalia Zukerman
    Brand New Frame
    Label: Weasel Records

    It is a bit of a conundrum how the daughter of a flutist and a violinist manages to find herself producing tantalizing bluesy guitar rock driven by her husky vocals. Her Americana attitude intermingles with a country and folk backbone while being complimented by the Willy Porter production.
