Manchester Orchestra – Simple Math
Manchester Orchestra - Simple Math

Release Date: May 6, 2011 Reviewed by Chris Johnston Manchester Orchestra have found what works for them, and totally scrapped it. That’s par for the course though, as they’ve never really remained static in one foundation for too long. They like to change it up…A LOT. But that’s not to say it’s a bad thing. […]

Funeral Party - 05-01-11 - The Fillmore, Detroit, MI

Funeral Party perform on May 1st, 2011 in support of “The Golden Age Of Knowhere” at The Fillmore in Detroit, Michigan – photos by Chris Schwegler Review By Chris Johnston Being on a big tour as a smaller known band can be pretty intimidating. Especially if the bands you’re on tour with are The Dillenger […]

Dredg – Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy
Dredg – Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy

Release Date: May 3, 2011 Reviewed by Chris Johnston I’d have loved to be at the studio with these guys while this record was being recorded. I believe the general mantra went something like this: “Let’s abandon what made us popular and get weird.” That’s not to say that Indie outfit Dredg’s latest effort ‘Chuckles […]

Foo Fighters – Wasting Light
Foo Fighters – Wasting Light

Release Date: April 12, 2011 Reviewed by Chris Johnston Dave Grohl might be the most underrated musician out there today. He has millions of fans, sure, but do you ever see him on syndicated MTV shows? No. Is he wearing crazy outfits to award shows to make a statement? No. Certainly those who know of […]

Art Of Dying – Vices And Virtues
Art Of Dying – Vices And Virtues

Release Date: March 22, 2011 Reviewed by Chris Johnston Oh, Canada. Our home and native land. Well, at least for Vancouver radio-rock outfit, Art Of Dying And Nickleback…. Ok, back to Art Of Dying. They’re certainly following in the footsteps of their previously mentioned fellow countrymen, Nickleback, by making rock music that will appeal to […]

The Mynabirds – What We Lose In The Fire We Gain In The Flood
The Mynabirds - What We Lose In The Fire We Gain In The Flood

Release Date: April 27, 2010 Reviewed by Chris Johnston Omaha, Nebraska, not exactly the music epicenter of the USA. The Mynabirds, however, are making a name for the city. ‘What We Lose In the Fire We Gain In the Flood’ provides a strong case for songstress Laura Burhenn. Recorded by only her and singer-songwriter/producer Richard […]

Rival Schools – Pedals
Rival Schools - Pedals

Release Date: March 8, 2011 Reviewed by Chris Johnston 10 years in the making. I can’t even begin to fathom how much fans of Rival Schools have been chomping at the bit for this album since the band’s debut “United By Fate” first hit shelves. Led by former Quicksand and Gorilla Biscuits frontman, Walter Schreifels, […]

Bright Eyes – The People’s Key
Bright Eyes - The People’s Key

Release Date: February 15, 2011 Reviewed By Chris Johnston Well, Bright Eyes fans, it’s the end of the road. Fortunately for you, The People’s Key will quench that final thirst for Conor Oberst and his enigmatic craftsmanship. To fans of Bright Eyes, this is just another chapter in their collection. But for those of you […]

Mumford & Sons – Sigh No More
Mumford & Sons – Sigh No More

Release Date: February 16, 2010 Reviewed by Chris Johnston There’s an obvious reason that this record has been certified platinum as of March 2011. This piece of art is arguably the best thing to happen to folk-style rock music since Bob Dylan. I don’t say that lightly either. Mumford and Sons is the real deal. […]

Amos Lee – Mission Bell
Amos Lee - Mission Bell

Released: January 25th, 2011 Reviewed by: Chris Johnston First off, as popular as Amos Lee is, I’ve never really listened to him. And after hearing his newest LP, “Mission Bell,” in its entirety, I’m really bummed out that I never gave him a shot before. This record is so SMOOTH. Normally when I sit down […]

Jonathan Tyler and The Northern Lights – Pardon Me
Jonathan Tyler and The Northern Lights - Pardon Me

Released: April 27th, 2010 Reviewed by Chris Johnston Pure, American Rock n Roll. There is no other way in the world to describe this album. Just right off the bat, this LP just demands to be blasted through your car speakers with all the windows rolled down on a 95 degree sunny day. You know, […]

White Lies – Ritual
White Lies - Ritual

Release Date: January 18, 2011 Reviewed by Chris Johnston In total brutal honesty, I can’t find a single thing likeable about this record. It’s very unfortunate, considering the first 30 seconds of the opening track, “Is Love” is kind of catchy. At first, I was hopeful. But fact of the matter is, New Wave is […]

Adele – 21
Adele - 21

Release Date: February 22, 2011 Reviewed by Chris Johnston This album came way out of left field. To be honest, I hadn’t heard much from Adele before taking the time to listen to her most recent effort, 21. To say that I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. This woman has got some serious soul. […]
