  •   When I discovered the first Vial Of Sound EP it was the weirdest and consequently, most alluring, thing I had heard in a long time. Now, months later, after watching their live shows grow continual amazing momentum they will release their second EP this month with an amazing event at Crescent Ballroom on April 13th.  Substance Organique Volatile takes the plan outlined on their debut, which was an exciting drawing board of esoteric ideas, and fleshes out their sound into a three dimensional sonic groove machine. Now the crazy thing is, I can’t even describe why I love these...

  • Peachcake may well have been the first local band that I saw live. It was long before I was writing for JAVA and had the appreciation for local music I have now. I had an ex-girlfriend that absolutely adored them and took me to a couple shows and in their early days, they were something of a kitschy Casio laden joy to behold. I was writing for a magazine called SWITCH that closed down before I ever got to write about them and grabbed their homemade EPs with the promise of getting them some press. When I reconnected with them...

  • Throughout the summer, I found myself looking forward to Autumnal events–not for any lack of amazing events during those heated days and sweltering nights, not even in the least. No, it was because as the summer progressed, more and more events began to stack up in store for September, October, November and well into the New Year–critical, amazing, mindblowing events. Events like the Tempe Rockstar Gold Festival this past weekend at Sail Inn, the upcoming Apache Lake Music Festival or Kongos homecoming show. Another one of these events I’ve been looking forward to for months is the album release show...

  • Tomorrow, September 25 Peachcake will release their long awaited and highly anticipated new album Unbelievable Souls. It’s hard to believe that it was nearly a year and a half ago that the EP teaser for the album This Wasn’t Our Plan was released, it’s also impressive that since that time they’ve been able to ride the crest of the wave found in those five songs alone. So how long will Peachcake be able to surf the waves caused by Unbelievable Souls? With fourteen songs, eleven of them new and all of them brilliant, it’s difficult to say, but this could...

  •   I’m actually surprised there isn’t more of this going around this year with the amazing music community we have–granted I’m not one for Christmas tunes, but leave it to Peachcake to step out and do it right, in their own brilliant, uniquely Peachcake way. Okay, now don’t get me wrong, Sundawg Records put out a great little weird EP called Electric Holiday, taking on the standards in a whole new light–which is brilliant in and of itself, but Peachcake wrote their own original Christmas song! That’s just impressive. I’d love to see a whole Christmas album like this from...

  • One of the things that strikes me when I listen to this song over and over again is the overwhelming optimism that just explodes from the headphones or speakers that pours this music into my mind. There’s simply not enough music out there that is drenched in this kind of enthusiastic happiness. It also strikes me that it is one of David Jackman’s greatest moments on the EP, which is something that shouldn’t be overlooked (seriously, he makes this song what it is). It’s a solid dance hit, a high energy number and it’s the kind of song that can turn your...

  • It seems May is the month to release amazing records here in the Valley of the Sun and the hits just keep coming. In fact record releases are seemingly endless throughout the rest of the summer.
