Anna Wise - "Girl, Mother, Crone" & Go

My Review:

Anna Wise, while not having the total vocal range of Pink has some very similar qualities.  Down the the dark almost gothic sexuality without slipping into all the shades of black.

Okay now it is your turn to tell me if you think this is a great song or not post your comments to let us know.

The Record Company - Off The Ground

The Record Company - Off The Ground

The Record Company write and play raw, sincere rock n' roll. Influenced by the rough honesty of their heroes--bluesmen like John Lee Hooker, early punk bands like The Stooges, and rock greats like The Rolling Stones--their sound incorporates slide guitar, distorted bass, a garage-sale Ludwig drum kit and the heartland-hued voice of Chris Vos, who grew up on a Wisconsin dairy farm. The three-man group started in late 2011, hanging up some old mics and recording live in the bass player's living room in Los Feliz, CA. The Record Company have since played concert halls across North America, opening for acts as diverse as B.B. King, Social Distortion, Buddy Guy, Grace Potter, and Trombone Shorty. The band toured Europe supporting Blackberry Smoke in Oct-Nov 2015, and their first full-length album is due out on Concord Records on February 12, 2016.

My Review:
Okay a raw Blues Band form Los Angeles?  Well that is actually what The Record Company is, a through back to the southern rock / blues sound from the 70's. This song is great for sitting around and knocking back a few cold brews in my opinion!

Okay it is your time to chime in and tell us what you think of 
The Record Company and the song Off The Ground.

Coin - Talk Too Much

A Nashville Band 
Members: Chase Lawrence - synth/vocals, Joe Memmel - guitar/vocals, Ryan Winnen - drums, Zachary Dyke - bass

There is not touch information out on this band beside the amazing music they are putting out.  

My Review:
I enjoyed the pop/alternative sound of the band that reminded me a little of Panic! At The Disco.  They have an alternative sound that crosses over nicely into main stream pop.  Expect big things form this band.

Okay now it is your turn tell us what you think of COIN and their song Talk Too Much

Land Lines - Etiquette

Featuring former members of the Fort Collins based group Matson Jones, Land Lines is the continuation of a longstanding collaboration between close friends who have been playing & making songs together for 10 years.
Formed in 2010, the new project started with Martina Grbac (cello/ vocals), Anna Mascorella (cello/vocals) and Ross Harada (drums/percussion). Their debut LP was recorded in Denver at the end of 2011 and was released by Cash Cow Production in 2012. 
Based in Denver, the current lineup includes Martina Grbac, Ross Harada and James Han (electric piano/organ).
In early 2014, Land Lines recruited Xandy Whitesel to record/mix and TW Walsh (Sufjan Stevens, The Shins, David Bazan) to master a second LP, The Natural World, which will be released by Misra Records on August 21st, 2015. With sultry songs that saunter, thrust, and linger, The Natural World is a treasure trove of heart breaking songs of love, loss, and human nature and ushers in the next era of Land Lines’ sonic exploration.

My Review :

A Very haunting and unique sound I really don't have a lot to compare Land Lines with!  They have a interesting sound that is off the charts so I am going to have to rely on your opinions.  

Put your feelings in the comment section and tell me if you think this band or song can make it big.

Okay I have listened to a lot of punk rock in my days, while the band is tolling around with Flogging Molly you can see their influence on the band.  However,  I hear a little of the band FEAR in this group and especially this song, it made me thing of the song, "Have A Bear with FEAR"

Punk Rock Opera - 1984

Punk Rock Opera - 1984

The A Side from the 1984 single, released as part of Punk Rock Opera.

Available for download at.

My review : 
For classic american punk rock fans, you might hear a little similarity to Black Flag back with Henry Rollins was in charge.  I love the energy of punk rock and think this group has some possibility of bringing some of that energy back!

Okay now it is your turn tell us if you think this band or this song could be a huge hit or not!
