Guthrie Govan was first came to my attention with his series of videos on YouTube. His talent is unquestionable, and his new band The Aristocrats seems to be a good outlet for his talents. I feel as though Govan has earned his place among the guitar legends Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, and this is a project to show that he can do more than session work. Culture Clash shows that The Aristocrats may be the Cream of progressive rock, with powerful side-players coming together to create good music together in their genre.

Tweens are a trash pop trio hailing from Cincinnati Ohio, comprised of Bridget Battle (Vox/Gtr), Peyton Copes (Bass), and Jerri Queen (Drums/BG Vox). Since their formation in May 2012, they have gone from pumping out old doo wop songs and demos in their basement to touring with The Breeders and making a name for themselves in just a years time. Blown out with an exploding intensity and full of sugary sweet hooks, Tweens will be in the studio this summer to record their first album on Frenchkiss Records
Pop-rock at its utmost, This Century’s newest full-length, Biography of Heartbreak, shimmies and shakes its way through 13 tracks of thumping hooks and catchy choruses. Like something you’d hear on the radio station, any radio station, every song is a ready-made Top 40 hit.
Flashlights is a project that was once a solo-acoustic project, but they manage to not sound like every other white-male-singer-songwriter. Their new EP “Don’t Take Me Seriously” is very well put together. With only three songs, it leaves listeners wanting more.
It is always nice to see classical musicians play pop music. Eklipse is a new act from Germany that brings together four female string musicians. Together, these young women give us their interpretations of modern pop songs from bands that everyone has heard of. In addition to unique takes on familiar songs, they also have a different image for classical music. Their album cover shows us the quartet in edgy outfits, two of the women in what might be called lingerie. The entire package is something that would never be called “traditional”. This might be a good way to attract the masses to classical music.
