  • Well, hell it’s been a damned rocky road to get to 2014. I feel like last year I was trucking along full speed and killing it with unbreakable momentum. The fact that I haven’t posted in over a month proves that I hit a roadblock. I apologize for ducking out for an unplanned hiatus. Hey, I’m only one guy–I don’t have a staff and only occasionally do I have other contributors, mostly this is a one man show. A show I intend to get back on the road. The main problem for me began in October when there was a...

  •   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...

  • Sometimes you attend a show that you know will be mindblowingly fantastic, for either talent or sound or diversity and sometimes you walk away from that show shaking your head in disbelief, because although you knew it was going to be good, you didn’t think it would be THAT good. So was the case with the six band  spectacular held by Jen Deveroux to celebrate the release of Gospel Claws second full length album Put Your Sunshine Away at Crescent Ballroom this past Friday night.
