2017 has been a fantastic year so far for lovers of good old fashioned classic pop-rock and today we spotlight four vets who have delivered new music that lives up to their immense reputations. Enjoy!
“Progressive rock”. A music genre born, nurtured & killed over 40 years ago. Which oddly enough appears to apply to whatever you want to call the music made by sub:shaman on its new album, apnea.
Elf Power formed in 1994 and over the last 23 years the band has released thirteen albums, two EPs, and a handful of singles while touring North America, Europe, and Japan many times.

Big Walnuts Yonder is bassist/vocalist Mike Watt (Minutemen, The Stooges), guitarist Nels Cline (Wilco, Nels Cline Singers), drummer Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and guitarist/vocalist Nick Reinhart (Tera Melos). It is not a supergroup. “It’s worlds colliding,” says Mike Watt.

Here’s an intriguing gig featuring four young S-ROCK bands.
Our first impression of Third was hazy – there was something seemingly askew about Cait Brennan’s match of husky vocal and power pop rock n roll musicality.
Berlin based singer-songwriter Leslie Clio has just released her second single “And I’m Leaving” off upcoming new album PURPLE due on May 19th worldwide.
We have been looking intently at the modern pop scene for some time now, hoping and praying that somewhere out there, there is an artist who is able to take the musical elements of the past and make it sound modern, and pointing the way to the future. Well, finally we think we have – and his name is Gabriel Garzón-Montano!
Last year, Matthew Logan Vasquez (frontman of Delta Spirit) released his first solo album Solicitor Returns to critical acclaim for its earthy fuzzed-up pop-rock.
Today Spotify announced the launch of Spotify Premium for Students in Singapore. Spotify Premium for Students allows all registered students to enjoy Spotify Premium – and all of the many benefits that come with being a Premium subscriber – for half the usual price.
Considering how traditional pop-rock is no longer commercially viable (and let’s face this hard truth, puh-lease), we should celebrate this state of affairs instead as it guarantees that – most of the time – new music made in this tradition is going to be genuine and true to the artistic vision of its creator/s. Case in point: Gretchen’s Wheel.
As we have frequently observed, it’s difficult to find proper melodic rock bands in the current Singapore music scene. But if you know where to look, you will discover that a S-ROCK underground exists, where bands like Gilded Edge do what they do best – make authentic rock ‘n’ roll.
Art-rockers British Sea Power are back with a brand new album – its sixth – and it’s a glorious return to the exhilarating, bright-minded guitar music that earned them their breakout nomination for the 2003 Mercury Music Prize as they cover subject matter ranging from the stars in the night sky to the methodology of media manipulation.

After the ‘debacle’ of the recent Guns ‘N’ Roses concert, we believe that it’s time that rock ‘n’ roll return to its roots or at least to a time when it was vital and dangerous. “Back to the Bars” as Todd Rundgren’s 1978 live album was titled.
Last time we reviewed a Grandaddy album – Just Like the Fambly Cat – it was 2006 and CDs stores were still a thing.

Yet another Aussie band with a firm grip of what pop-rock music is all about, Sydney’s Middle Kids hit all the right notes on its eponymous debut EP.
