SPOTLIGHT BAND: Old James is delivering a much needed dose of ROCK with their new video for Words as Weapons

April 5, 2017

We bring the spotlight on a kick ass band that we saw in San Francisco a couple years back opening for Girlschool. We are excited to hear that they are still killing it with their straight up rock dipped in metal. The band is the Canadian power trio Old James. They are soon to release their debut album, Speak Volumes and they have just released a video for their new track, Words as Weapons.  The song delivers us a heaping much needed dose of Rock with powerful riffs, the perfect balance of gritty and smooth vocals, strong melody, smoking guitar solo and killer drums.  They capture the raw intensity of old school rock n roll, yet bring an in-your-face modern intensity that has them capturing both the metal and rock scene. Check out the video here: Band Members: Brian Stephenson (Lead Vocals/Bass Guitar) Andy Thompson (Lead Guitar) Chris Stephenson (Drums/Backing Vocals) Get ready for their new music and make sure to share the video with your friends.

January 6, 2017

One of our favorite bands, Ozone Mama are back in the spotlight with the release of their new music video. They  have just released a video for their song, Siren’s Call. The song is off their album, Sonic Glory and is a brilliant work of art. We have told you before about their kick ass album, “This album truly celebrates the authentic sound of rock and roll which has been missing for some time now in the scene. The seven song album is filled with the infectious rockin tracks reminiscent of the 60’s or 70’s yet swaddled in a modern vibe. The first thing that stood out is the amazingly authentic vintage sound that the album has and I love!” Check out the new video here: Make sure to pick up their album: Stream: Deezer: https://goo.gl/qxXkxE Spotify: https://goo.gl/VpIf7P Buy: iTunes: https://goo.gl/yhP5uY Amazon: http://goo.gl/bc9dHq We will see if we can bring you an interview with these guys and hopefully they will be touring the US in 2017!

First Spotlight of 2017 goes to Jonny Couch

January 3, 2017

    The first Spotlight of 2017 goes to Jonny Couch. Jonny released one of our favorite vinyls of 2016. He released his debut EP, Animal Instinct in November 2016. The five song EP was pressed on vinyl with digital card on Jonny’s own Damaged Sofa Records. Longtime drummer on the NY music scene, Jonny Couch has come from behind the kit in his new self-named band to get behind the microphone. On his forthcoming 5 song EP, Animal Instinct, he plays drums, organ and synths on all tracks. While Jonny has a band behind him in a live setting, he plays drums and keyboards on the record. Jonny combines styles from years in NYC playing punk rock in the mid-aughts with The Choke (who toured with Buzzcocks and other punk rock luminaries) and earlier this decade with his dance-pop act LoveCryme (whose vocalist went on to do choreography for Kiesza). The resulting sound? A leather capped New Romantic disguised as Brando-Elvis belting out anthemic heartbreak missives of pain. The EP was recorded in Savannah, [Read More]

November 26, 2016

  Today our Spotlight Band is KANDUR. We recently caught KANDUR performing at the Neck of the Woods in San Francisco. They kicked off the show with The Fame Riot and RADKEY. They came out with great energy and got the crowd ready to rock. Their music delivers a great balance of alternative rock with hard hitting punches and dipped in a classic rock vibe. Very refreshing to find a band that brings out some great feel good rock music. The band is the works of Ilker Kandur who relocated to San Francisco when the political climate in his home of Istanbul started to take drastic turns for the worse, choosing San Francisco as one of the western world’s most historically progressive locales, and the home of many of his musical influences, San Francisco. Genre:  Alternative Rock/Rock Location: San Francisco, CA Feature: Delivers alternative rock with roots deep in the classic rock vibe, and yet can bring out some hard hitting rock tracks. Definitely pleasing fans across genre walls. Song to check out: new single, Save Me: Current [Read More]
