Modern Nomad – “There It Is, There You Are” Soul Step Records REVIEW

The last time I covered something from Modern Nomad was Bardo, the vinyl version of his EP on Soul Step Records. In that article, I didn’t really know much about the artist or the sub-genre “bedroom pop”. Fast forward to now and not much has changed. Another element that hasn’t changed much is how much I’m impressed with just how enjoyable Modern Nomad is as an artist. Even more so with the release of his new record, There It Is, There You Are! Just like the last...

Featured Album: SCIENCE MAN – ‘Nines Mecca’

It’s the end of the world as we know it and John Toohill feels fine. ‘Nines Mecca‘, the fourth installment of Toohill’s Science Man project plays like the soundtrack to the apocalypse with its relentless hardcore fury created by man and machine. Toohill is a very prolific artist at the top of his game and his creativity is electric and there is not enough space to list everything he is involved in. ‘Nines Mecca‘ comes screaming from your speakers across a...

The Saint Johns “Where Do We Go From Here” – Soul Step Records REVIEW

You could probably throw a rock down any given street and you would probably hit an acoustic indie duo. Well, that’s what it feels like, at the very least. So you could probably imagine my apprehension when someone suggested I should listen to one. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy a good duo of easy-listening folk songs, but there’s no denying it’s a bit of an over-exposed sub-genre in the indie scene. Fortunately, that’s not the case with Where Do We Go From...

Kool 100s / Ghost Town Strays / Mr. and The Mrs. Show Review

One wild night of rock n roll happened in St. Joseph, Missouri last night. As music makes its return little by little I feel we gain back that human interaction that we long for and great bands and friends to hang out and listen to them with you! First up Kool 100s are no strangers to the area and a welcomed breath of fresh air, doo-wop punk, slamming drums, and a bass guitar thumping all around. This is what I needed the entire time I was in isolation. The raw grit and soul of Kool 100s shows...
