Diego Garcia – Laura Album Review

As the former frontman for New York-based indie band Elefant, Diego Garcia is a singer-songwriter one will either love or hate.

Adventure – Lesser Known Album Review

With Lesser Known, Adventure has made a dance party album for the — forgive the pun — musically unadventurous. Gone are all the hard, edgy beats and the 8-bit bumpy feel from his previous release; everything seems much sleeker and overproduced. This is not the Adventure of the Baltimore Wham City days that it was...Read...
