This is probably one of the toughest reviews I’ve ever written. Ever since I first listened to this debut full-length from Seattle’s Fleet Foxes, I’ve been wondering how in the world I would be able to string together a couple (or more) sentences that would do justice to this masterpiece! For a band to be able to meld the rustic melodic beauty of Brian Wilson/Van Dyke Parks’ Smile and the heartfelt echoes of 70s singer-songwriter movement, is almost unbelievable.
More pop than rock perhaps, Phillip Phillips’ new song has a strong early Coldplay vibe that is somewhat irresistible to listen to.

Laid back chilled-out rock ‘n’ roll with a melodic edge is what N.Z. band DateMonthYear delivers with new single “March”.

Remember, boys and girls, retro is good! BEECHWOOD is the best kind of retro!
Gotta love a rock ‘n’ roll band with eclectic influences!
Staying power is not usually associated with Singapore bands but to the credit of The Pinholes, the quartet have been soldering on for over a decade in the unforgiving local music scene. The band celebrate this longevity with an entertaining new album – D’Antara Kita!
Post-punk revivalists Some Kind of Illness have returned with a new album – Awakening.
“All Done With Rock N Roll”? We think not! If going by the melodic rock agenda of Boston-based Watts is any clue.

Rock ‘n’ roll is not all about sex, drugs and partying but as an art form has allowed the fragile soul to express the deepest and darkest thoughts on existential angst. This is certainly true of singer-songwriter Julien Baker.
Spencer Robinson brings an interesting perspective to the now marginalised art form we call Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Los Angeles based Vista Kicks is Derek Thomas, Sam Plecker, Trevor Sutton, and Nolan LeVine.
The quartet, originally met on the kindergarten playground in their hometown and are thus more than bandmates. They are lifelong friends and creative brothers with a knack for writing infectious songs and throwing a great party.
