It’s currently a very exciting time in Jazz. There are a plethora of talented and unique musicians. Jimmy Macbride is no exception. He is one of the most versatile and hard-working drummers out there.
Mountain is one of the most underappreciated Hard Rock bands of all time. The most overlooked member of this underappreciated group is Corky Laing. Corky turned his time with Mountain into a music career spanning five decades. In that time, he has been in other influential hard rock bands (Bruce, West & Laing), cult Indie bands (Cork), making thematic music, and being a music executive. Corky is a hard-working and dynamic person who has truly done it all.
A handful of years ago, I fully immersed myself into the Vaporwave scene. One of the first Vaporwave records I ever bought was Escape to New York by Ursula’s Cartridges. Since then, Ursula’s Cartridges has become a staple of my Vaporwave listening sessions.
In the early part of this past decade, the general music-listening public started to rediscover its love affair with vinyl. It became clear there was a need in the market for an affordable, quality, and easy-to-use turntable. That is where U-Turn came in.
Miami Nights 1984, aka Michael Glover, is one of the pioneers of the current Synthwave scene. Early Summer and Turbulence are classics of the scene. His nostalgically lo-fi synth soundscapes are perfect for vibing out on your next late-night drive.
2X Grammy Winner Daru Jones is one of the most respected drummers of his generation who has recorded, performed, and toured with an eclectic mix of renowned artists and producers.
Do you like Memphis Soul? Classic Country? Old school Punk? Contemporary Alt-Rock? What if I told you a band could incorporate all those elements into one comprehensive sound?
It always seems like drummers are some of the hardest working people in music. Corey Fonville is no exception. Corey is a full-time member of Christian Scott’s critically acclaimed group and a driving force behind eclectic Jazz Fusion band Butcher Brown.
The rare artist comes in hot and continues to impress. Producer and musician Ben Braun has done that with his project Hotel Pools. Ben has already produced three modern-day indie-electronic classics under the moniker.
Do you like music that is equal parts Heartland Punk, Americana, and Folk? Do you enjoy when that music is made by a genuine person who has a sincere love for his craft? If so, you will appreciate the music of Dave Hause.
