Red hot and rocking, Stars In Stereo’s new self-titled album is a white hot quasar of anthemic and incendiary fire. Fronted by the fantastic vocals of Bec Hollcraft, the band roars through 10 tracks of modern rock excellence, each one worthy of radio airplay and hit single status.
Sounding like a lifeboat sent out from early ’90s space-rock, Tripwires’ debut album, Spacehopper, is a fantastic beginning to their career. Atmospheric and emotional, the songs float along a wave of psychedelia and electronics, getting into your subconscious and pushing you on a journey into the center of their sound.
Bursting out of the South, Turf War’s newest release, The Great Escape EP, is 4 songs full of boozy and rough-edged indie rock. Fresh off the success of their debut album Years Of Living Dangerously and some extensive touring, the group, originally a solo project of singer/guitarist John Robinson, have released the EP in advance of more touring throughout the summer.
With only days left in their Kickstarter campaign, newly formed rock fivesome Get Involved!, which features members from influential bands Thursday, From Autumn To Ashes, Glassjaw and Judge, has released a demo called “Scars Make The Man” today in effort to raise the final 1/3 of their Kickstarter goal to help fund their debut EP that will be recorded later this month with Ross Robinson (At the Drive In, The Cure).

Music that drops the hammer on your head at the same time it sets you on the bar stool, The 4onthefloor’s newest album, Spirit Of Minneapolis, is a loud and stomping collection of blues-tinged rock that demands to be played loud outside on the bassiest stereo you can find. Like a messenger from the past of heavy rock, the band unleashes 12 tracks of guitar-based heaviness from the heart of Americana.
“We make pop music for people who don’t like people.” This is the repeated refrain on “We Make Pop Music,” the second of the two new tracks on the new Art Brut release, Top Of The Pops. Simultaneously mission statement and call to arms, Eddie Argos’s sing along misanthropy rings just the right note between sarcasm and sincerity. Top Of The Pops is a two-disc “best of” release to celebrate ten years of the weird and oft acclaimed European rock band, and what a fantastic collection to celebrate with.
A two guitar and drum band, Radical Dads’ newest release, their 2nd full-length, titled Rapid Reality, has a spacious sound that both booms and rings at the same time. Heavy drumbeats and melodic guitar lines join together to create an indie pop soundscape that rocks hard while also pleasing the ears.
