The Neighbourhood – I Love You
The Neighbourhood - I Love You

Release Date: April 23, 2013 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger It isn’t too often that a moody album really works in a striking way and doesn’t just sound depressing, but The Neighbourhood’s debut release, I Love You, manages to do just that. Despite the fairly consistent tempos, often dark lyrics and generally morose sound, The […]

Pentatonix – PTX, Vol. 2
Pentatonix - PTX, Vol. 2

Release Date: November 5th, 2013 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Who’d have thought a cappella would become trendy? Whether it was the resurgence of a cappella groups on college and university campuses or the surprisingly popular and entertaining movie Pitch Perfect, a cappella is finally getting its moment in the sun. For Pentatonix, it may […]

Rooftop Runners – We Are Here EP
Rooftop Runners - We Are Here EP

Release Date: April 3rd, 2012 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Rooftop Runners’ We Are Here EP is a quick taste of what the duo is all about. Although they are currently located in Berlin, the group originally hails from Canada. However, their overall sound is a blend of influences. Although there are shifts throughout the […]

Snow Patrol – Fallen Empires
Snow Patrol - Fallen Empires

Release Date: January 10th, 2012 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Fallen Empires is Snow Patrol’s sixth studio album and it’s almost doubly disappointing because of that. That probably comes across wrong; it’s a solid album full of those lushly orchestrated tracks that listeners have come to expect from the band. Fallen Empires is well produced […]

Fun. – Some Nights
Fun. - Some Nights

Release Date: February 21st, 2012 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Even if you don’t know who is performing the song, it seems fairly safe to say that most people have heard Fun.’s first single “We Are Young.” With the huge shift in how many people buy music, picking songs here and there rather than buying […]

Mike Moss – Cold World Plastic Dream
Mike Moss - Cold World Plastic Dream

Release Date: January 27th, 2012 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Mike Moss’ debut album is a bit of a surprise in just how polished and well-done it is. There’s none of the major missteps that often are found on freshman attempts, instead, listeners get 12 tracks, all of which are decent. Sure, some are more […]

Janus – Nox Aeris
Janus - Nox Aeris

Released Date: March 27th, 2012 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Janus isn’t a brand new band, but despite being around since 1998, their following is still fairly quiet. While some people might want to run at the news that Janus is an alternative metal band, rest assured, they aren’t bad and while Nox Aeris sometimes […]

Band of Skulls – Sweet Sour
Band of Skulls - Sweet Sour

Release Date: February 14th, 2012 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger With a name like Band of Skulls it wouldn’t be at all surprising if the uninitiated expected something much more, well, metal. The reality of the situation couldn’t be much further from the truth. The group which hails from Southampton, England is every inch garage […]

Matthew Good – Lights of Endangered Species
Matthew Good - Lights of Endangered Species

Release Date: May 3rd, 2011 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Matthew Good is one of those artists that, for fans, can make you feel like you’re part of a special secret society. Good’s music is subtle, lacking that in-your-face quality that many groups and artists rely heavily on, sometimes to their detriment. For those music […]

Eye Empire – Moment of Impact
Eye Empire - Moment of Impact

Release Date: September 6th, 2011 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Hailed as a supergroup, Eye Empire bestowed their first album with the rather grandiose title, Moment of Impact. Unfortunately, the impact that the album makes isn’t necessarily a good one. Sure, the band members come from groups such as Dark New Day and Submersed and […]

Trombone Shorty – For True
Trombone Shorty - For True

Release Date: September 13th, 2011 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger For the uninitiated, Trombone Shorty is truly unlike anything they’ve heard before. The project is the brainchild of New Orleans’ native Troy Andrews and is an astounding mix of jazz, Motown, rap, soul and even a little bit rock. Even if the album isn’t a […]

Feersum Ennjin – Feersum Ennjin
Feersum Ennjin - Feersum Ennjin

Release Date: November 22nd, 2011 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger There’s little doubt that the moniker under which former Tool bassist Paul D’Amour is now working is a bit odd. Even with the knowledge that the name comes from a science fiction novel by Iain Banks, it still may cause some double-takes. That said, a […]

Wolf Gang – Suego Faults
Wolf Gang - Suego Faults

Release Date: July 25th, 2011 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Wolf Gang’s first full-length album, Suego Faults, is what one might expect from a debut, there are some ups and downs, but in general it’s a solid album and many of the perks outweigh the problems. Even if listeners didn’t know prior to investigating Suego […]

Chevelle – Hats Off to the Bull
Chevelle - Hats Off to the Bull

Release Date: December 6th, 2011 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger It may come as a bit of a surprise that Chevelle has been around since 1995 and has multiple albums under their belts. They often seem like one of those bands that pops up on local alternative rock radio and is more likely a one-hit […]

The Black Keys – El Camino
The Black Keys - El Camino

Release Date: December 6th, 2011 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Unless you’ve been completely ignoring rock radio, you’ve probably heard The Black Keys mentioned, even if you can’t put a finger on which song is theirs. There’s good reason for why they seem to be one of the hottest things on alternative radio. Their recent […]

Portugal. The Man – In the Mountain In the Cloud
Portugal. The Man - In the Mountain In the Cloud

Release Date: July 19, 2011 By Evelyn Miska Krieger In case you didn’t pick it up from the band’s name, Portugal. The Man is a pretty eclectic and, at times, eccentric group. Their latest release, In the Mountain In the Cloud may seem as if someone took David Bowie, early Elton John, a dash of […]

Rachael Yamagata – Chesapeake
Rachael Yamagata - Chesapeake

Released Date: October 11th, 2011 By Evelyn Miska Krieger Rachael Yamagata’s album Chesapeake is the third solo-release from this talented musician, but Yamagata still is flying under the radar for the most part. Unlike her sophomore release, Elephants…Teeth Sinking Into Heart, Chesapeake is a bit more relaxed, a little less intense and while some listeners […]

Wye Oak – Civilian
Wye Oak - Civilian

Released Date: March 8th, 2011 By Evelyn Miska Krieger For Wye Oak first-timers, Civilian is an excellent way to get introduced to the band. The collection is a fine balance between modern folk, rock with just the right amount of shoegaze thrown in to keep things interesting. It is a complex album and just when […]

The Sheepdogs – Five Easy Pieces – EP
The Sheepdogs - Five Easy Pieces - EP

Released Date: August 2nd, 2011 By Evelyn Miska Krieger For some listeners, the first introduction to the Canadian band The Sheepdogs may have come either from the pages of Rolling Stone or via one of the weekly challenges on Project Runway. While it is admirable that The Sheepdogs were selected by Rolling Stone readers as […]

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds - Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

Release Date: October 18th, 2011 By Evelyn Miska Krieger The demise of Oasis wasn’t surprising, in fact, it just seemed like a matter of time based on the increasing number of violent outbursts and tension between the Gallagher brothers. So, for many Oasis fans, the fact that both Liam and Noel headed in different directions […]

Devotchka – 100 Lovers
Devotchka - 100 Lovers

Release Date: February 28th, 2011 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Devotchka is hardly a household name, though some people may be surprised to find they really have heard some of their work. Besides their seven studio albums, the band also wrote the score for Little Miss Sunshine and had songs featured in the trailer for […]

The Cab – Symphony Soldier
The Cab - Symphony Soldier

Release Date: August 23rd, 2011 Reviewed by Evelyn Miska Krieger Unless you’re fully immersed in the pop-emo scene, The Cab may have escaped your attention. The production of the band’s latest album, Symphony Soldier, had its ups and downs and the significant turnover in terms of band members and even the choice to leave their […]

Mastodon – The Hunter
Mastodon - The Hunter

Release Date: September 27th, 2011 Reviewed by Evelyn Miska Krieger For listeners used to Mastodon’s previous work, The Hunter will be a bit of a surprise. Not only has their sound taken a pretty strong turn but even the structure of the album differs. Typically, Mastodon albums have a handful of tracks most of which […]

Brett Detar – Bird in the Tangle
Brett Detar - Bird in the Tangle

Release Date: November 23rd, 2010 Reviewed by Evelyn Miska Krieger For those that don’t like country or folk music, Brett Detar’s debut solo album may be a tough sell, especially considering the first track on the album. With the immediate immersion into slide guitars and a twangy sound, it could be a bit difficult to […]
