The Splits - II album cover

The Splits

II, 2015

Radioactivity - Silent Kill album cover


Silent Kill, 2015

8.8 / 10

These guys know how to start off a record, with the rapid fire “Battered” pummeling with riffage for the first minute and then Jeff Burke’s familiar vocals chime in and ...

Low Culture - Places To Hide album cover

Low Culture

Places To Hide, 2016

8.4 / 10

Screens, (2013) was damn near perfect. So what does Low Culture have in store with their second LP? It’s not disappointment, that’s for sure. Places to Hide continues their run ...

Drakulas - Raw Wave album cover


Raw Wave, 2016

At this point Riverboat Gamblers have enough side projects that there’s almost an expectation of sound before listening, that unifying factor between all the different bands that have spidered from ...

Bad Sports

Living with Secrets, 2016

7.8 / 10

Bad Sports are coming into their own. They’ve always been a solid Denton, TX hyphen-rock band but on their new EP, Dirtnap’s Living With Secrets, the nuances are starting to ...

Lost Balloons - Hey Summer album cover

Lost Balloons

Hey Summer, 2017

7.0 / 10

By now it feels like hitting repeat, but for the uninitiated, Lost Balloons has to be introduced through the Marked Men timeline. The beloved Texas garage-punk band went on hiatus sometime back, ...

Mind Spiders - Furies album cover

Mind Spiders

Furies, 2018

7.8 / 10

While I’ve always enjoyed Mind Spiders, they’ve kind of felt like a side project, an idea that hadn’t really grown into a full-fledged band yet. On each of their releases ...

Proud Parents - Proud Parents album cover

Proud Parents

Proud Parents, 2018

With three singers among the four familiar faces of Proud Parents, isn’t no surprise that the record succeeds on the band members’ ability to meet in the middle between different ...

Bad Sports - Constant Stimulation album cover

Bad Sports

Constant Stimulation, 2018

With Bad Sports, the songs are often about the hooks. The band utilizes traditional rock structures with song titles embedded in the chorus and predictable progressions. It’s largely about where ...

The Hussy - Looming album cover

The Hussy

Looming, 2019

8.0 / 10

It’s been fun watching The Hussy grow. All those scuzzy, dirty licks and rough-and-tumble beats of their early work is still present, but on Looming the now-trio lets the once understated melodies ...

Personality Cult

New Arrows, 2020

7.8 / 10

I like to find new bands. One of the challenges as I get older is exactly that. I listen to a lot of music, but a lot of it follows ...
