To celebrate, Witch Jail will take the stage at Mills Record Company, joined by Shortsweather, for a night of danceable punk and distortion-rich dreampop.

Crippled Black Phoenix Gets Bronzed

Coming off their 2015 release, New Dark Age, Crippled Black Phoenix wasted no time putting together what would become their latest, Bronze. While the band follows the droning orchestration of New Dark Age, in Bronze Crippled Black Phoenix uses more structured arrangements and varying atmosphere to create an album that is as all enfolding as their previous releases but […]

Wides and Second Hand King @ Mills Record Company

It’s seldom that two bands that differ so much on the surface fit together as well as WIDES and Second Hand King. The latter prefers more controlled jazz-kissed hip hop, and the former is wild and noisy. That said, there’s some je ne sais quoi feeling that links the two acts. It could be their […]

The Philistines Album Release @ Replay Lounge

In case you missed it, The Philistines put out their debut on The Record Machine about a month ago. The TL;DR of it is The Backbone of The Night rocks. Layering classic tube-warmed psych-tones with slick indie pop hooks, the album unfurls equally as a meandering jam and a collection of tunes that stay stuck in […]

Second Hand King Reigns In Latest Album

Jazz and hip hop have been interwoven since the 80s, but their mixture has become more prominent in the past couple years. Whether it’s national (Kendrick Lamar’s jazz odyssey To Pimp a Butterfly, Flying Lotus’ You’re Dead, Med, Blue & Madlib’s Bad Neighbor) or local (The Phantastics, iLLPHONics, or Second Hand King), the marriage between the two genres […]

The Architects and The Sluts Have a Border War

In a world of hyphenated genres, cross genre work, and hybridity, sometimes the most innovated things are straightforward monoliths. The Architects and The Sluts are two such things. Both bands land with both feet solidly within Rock n Roll (note the capitalization). Their styles differ slightly but each features guitar forward rock that can fill […]
