REVIEW : JJ Heller - Unto Us

In writing reviews, occasionally you come across an artist or band you’re entirely unfamiliar with. There can be a number of reasons for that, but nevertheless, when I come across them, I look forward to writing the review. It’s often a great way to find and share new artists/bands to listen to and you know you’re sure to present a fresh take on the album you’re reviewing. Continued →

The Hotshot Freight Train Release Final Album

I’ve got to report some sad news today that might bother a few of you, the band The Hotshot Freight Train are unfortunately calling it quits but they are going out with a BANG! That’s right, the band has recorded a 12 song final album and have released it today through all digital networks. The album is also available on a very limited edition CD which you can purchase here (limited to 100). I remember working with a few of these guys when they were in a band called Joey’s Loss. Ever since I first heard their Ep I’ve been a fan. I’ve followed their career closely over the past 10 years through all the peaks and valleys and I can say without a doubt that their last album and this new one are the band’s best material. Let this album serve as a fitting reminder of the power of independent music and the songwriting from seasoned veterans. If you’re a new fan, enjoy this album and make sure to look up their past discography. RIP THSFT, you’ll be missed. Listen to a stream of their album below. Continued →
