Sol Driven Train Underdog By Al Kaufman Sol Driven Train is made up of a bunch of happy guys from Charleston, SC who love making music and probably listened to a lot of Jimmy Buffett as kids. Their songs consist of loose, rootsy melodies infused with horns.  They sing carefree songs about the glories of […]

The Memphis-based artist’s work follows the storytelling vein of classic country and folk, and his responses reflect how deeply that tendency is rooted within him.

CD Review: Buckcherry – Confessions

CD Review: Buckcherry – Confessions

[ 0 ] February 19, 2013 |

Review by Ellen Eldridge Fans on the bus with Buckcherry know the band for its rock appeal; the down and dirty life one would expect from a fast-soloing, hard living group of guys. And I may have always been running behind the bus unsure if I wanted on or not. I’ve seen Buckcherry open for […]

CD Review: Big Wreck – Albatross

CD Review: Big Wreck – Albatross

[ 0 ] February 19, 2013 |

Review by Ellen Eldridge   A thick band of power chords grinds out early in the opening track, “Head Together,” on Big Wreck’s Albatross, effectively introducing the band’s first new album in ten years. For fans unfamiliar with Big Wreck, comparisons to Soundgarden and Led Zeppelin are fair considering Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Alice […]

    Photos and Review by: Catrina Maxwell with CatMax Photography, LLC Imagine Dragon sold out the Tabernacle, but after seeing Nico Vega I think they had a part in selling out that venue as well. I had never heard of the band Nico Vega before and as I entered the press pit I wasn’t […]

CD Review: Puscifer – Donkey Punch the Night EP

[ 0 ] February 18, 2013 |

Review by Ellen Eldridge   I get nervous with my Puscifer CDs because I know I will want them around to comfort me when I need a pick me up song full of boldly layered lines and powerfully dynamic vocals. Many Tool fans assume Puscifer is frontman Maynard James Keenan’s bastard child; a joke band […]

By: Taylor Magill I first came across The Electric Sons when I found a copy of their self-titled EP in the box office of the venue where I work. From first listen, I was hooked. With electronic influences, ELS’ EP is high energy from start to finish. ELS was  formed in 2011 when vocalist and […]
