Captain the Sky’s deluxe re-release of “Lions & Foxes” blends the best of post-hardcore and math rock technicality with fun acoustic jams.

Lael’s newest EP lacks artistic form and overindulges in pop clichés.
Archabald did a live Q&A earlier this week and here’s the session for you to listen to! If you’re looking for the key points, they have a new EP titled “Carcosa” that is almost ready for distribution. There will be accompanying materials like videos and even a short story (as a physical item to complement the lyrical content of the EP). Continued →
Wisconsin pop-punk mainstays Page 2 held their farewell show last night. Now’s a good time as any to spin their 2016 EP, “Us Against the World”. I’ve also been in talks with singer/guitarist Matt Peters about a possible new “heavier” project to follow so we’ll keep you updated! Continued →
Off Road Minivan proves you can’t always judge a band by its name on their debut EP which mixes indie and post-hardcore elements.

Whale Bones’ ambitious debut EP is a refreshing, dynamic amalgamation of post-hardcore, indie, post-rock, alternative, and pop-punk that reaffirms the Indiana rock scene is still thriving.

Nashville’s VEAUX has released their second song since rebranding from Medic. On the Edge showcases an even stronger pop and electronic direction compared to the group’s previous work. A prominent falsetto chorus fights with darker instrumentation and careful production elements. Check it out below:
Benjamin James’ “Change is Everything” is an explosive sleeper hit of 2017 that melds chamber pop and electronic elements into a dynamic listening experience.

“Ultraviolet” tackles big questions of faith head on with a wall of reverb, lyrical poeticism, and a fair share of experimentation.

While VEAUX‘s first single really isn’t a new song (it’s their last song released under the Medic moniker), this time it’s accompanied by a video. Ultimately, it’s just another great opportunity for readers to get acquainted with this energetic indie pop trio that surely has a bright future ahead. Continued →
Over the Ocean‘s last release is almost five years behind us now. “Be Given to the Soil” was a heavy blend of post-rock and post-hardcore paired with gritty baritone vocals. Think if John Mark McMillan sang for My Epic. It’s always refreshing when a band takes an unconventional route in conveying faith-based topics in an nontraditional context – and that’s certainly something these men do well. Continued →

Chasing Victory’s first material in almost 11 years showcases a powerful mix of post-hardcore and southern rock that’s full of grit and energy.

We haven’t heard much from James McCurley’s solo project, Black Pages, for several years. His first EP was a promising mix of ambient, pop, and singer/songwriter, but his new single, Back Down, takes things up a few notches. Much like his previous tracks, Back Down is largely subdued and a bit pensive, though it feels a bit more stream-of-consciousness as well. Continued →

Jonathan Ogden experiments with melding worship and R&B on his latest EP but fails to leave a lasting impression.
LEDGES’ debut album is an ambitious release that proves they’re not afraid to take risks.

Indie pop group Medic have announced they will be calling it quits. However, this all follows the group’s move to Nashville and the release of several singles (with hints at even more music). Other bands have made similar announcements before rebranding under a new name and optimists think there’s a chance that may be the case here. Continued →

Author’s sophomore release takes the best of “Of Brighter Days” and tops it off with synths and 80s influence for an album that’s full of energy and technicality.
