Linfinity – Martian’s Bloom

Linfinity – Martian’s Bloom

Linfinity is the poetry of Americana in a nature state of maturity. Ancient but alive, ticking like rustic antique clocks that are now international collectables, part of an alternative genre that benefits from the influence of world music. The quivering voice of Dylan Von Wagne booms with primitive angst. There...

Envy On The Coast – Lowcountry

Envy On The Coast – Lowcountry

Wash.  Rinse.  Repeat.  Envy On The Coast has done a wonderfully masterful job of recording an album meant for 1998.  Mainstream rock that recalls elements of a dark period in music creativity, with rock chords performing as a cure-all.  This is not revisional history, nor homage to a time period. ...

Future Islands – In Evening Air

Future Islands – In Evening Air

Not every reason is a revelation. Not every instance an eclipse. Some things just happen. Some times just pass. We live our lives. Some of us die. Others mourn and still more move on without notice.
