The Angry Orts – Self-Titled Album Review

  In 2009, The Angry Orts released their debut, The Purple Rhino Squad Versus The Blue Whale Super Heavy Assault Troops – a full-length album of raucous dance punk and indie rock.

CHIEF – Modern Rituals Album Review

&nsbp; Santa Monica’s CHIEF falls into the unfortunate category of a band which gives a false first impression: they can enthrall with a taste, with one track — and then let you down dramatically when you encounter the full album.

Matt Dahan – Shadowboxing Album Review

Matt Dahan’s solo album, Shadowboxing, mixes very distinctive ’80s-style synths with a powerpop — and sometimes quieter a folk rock — sound. This results in a lot of light, fun songs, but at points, they verge on cheesy and become way too sugary. Having trained at Berklee College Of Music, Dahan is certainly a capable...Read...

Viper Creek Club – Letters Album Review

If you own a pair of comfortable dancing shoes, Viper Creek Club’s album, Letters, is sure to bring out your inner Fred Astaire or Boogaloo Shrimp. No doubt put together with an array of synths and an endless cache of ideas, all the electronic blips and subtle sound effects will draw comparisons to bands like...Read...
