John Sierra (Attalus) Returns With New Music

The former guitarist John Sierra of much adored post-hardcore band Attalus, has returned to release new music under his own name. It’s beautifully moving and inspiring, causing one to self reflect and gaze upon the beauty of life God has provided. His new song “The Tide” just dropped yesterday (listen below), and “The Wonder” came out a few weeks back as well. I’m loving these tunes and I look forward to many more to come.… Continued →

REVIEW : Roemer - Straight Bars and Guns

Roemer is a stripped-back acoustic/indie folk project. If you’re anything like me, folk has to be some really special to catch my attention—a quirky vocal style, effective use of harmonies, skilful playing, or best of all hard-hitting and/or poignant lyrics. If it has one or more of those, I’m more likely to pay attention. Straight Bars and Guns was written from an outsider looking in. Much like myself, Roemer is an American citizen living abroad. He in Berlin, me in the south of England.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Arthur Alligood - Shouldn't Be That Hard

Today’s Song of the Day post is all about Arthur Alligood and specifically the song, “Shouldn’t Be That Hard”.

He has appeared on a few past free IVM Compilations and was featured here many times over the years.
