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: Spotify: Buy: iTunes: Amazon: 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]
