As such, its the guiding principle behind Bern Kelly’s new album, Lost Films, a record that deploys a sweeping array of styles, from power-pop to plaintive folk and reverb-washed Americana. Recorded with an array of the town’s brightest studio pros, including producer Patrick Damphier … Continue reading Song Premiere: Bern Kelly, “Cash in the Basement”

Song Premiere: Wright Brothers, “My Bucketlist”

Growing up in the Park Hill neighborhood of Denver, Colorado, brothers Jahmar and Dio Wright were surrounded by music from the jump.

And their uncle’s funk band was always laying it down … Continue reading Song Premiere: Wright Brothers, “My Bucketlist”

Song Premiere: Injected, “Death Ray”

In the mid ’90s, Injected, a high-school metal trio, stormed out of the Atlanta underground destroying packed, sweaty clubs with intense and notoriously volatile live shows. Front man, Danny Grady, exuding confidence, crushed Metallica-like and later Angus-worthy riffs with raw power and disarmingly melodic vocals. With rhythm section, Steve Slovisyky (bass) and Chris Wojtal (drums), they were joined by peerless … Continue reading Song Premiere: Injected, “Death Ray”

Song Premiere: Punch Punch Kick, “Swimming”

Song Premiere: Dead Posey, “Freak Show”

Befitting their handle, Dead Posey is fascinated by what lies beyond, their music exploring the nature of mortality through both waking life and dreams. But while the Los Angeles duo’s lyrics lean toward the metaphysical, its debut EP, Freak Show, is a raucous, fuzz-loaded collection of back-to-basics rock ‘n’ roll. Singer Danielle Souza’s inspired vocals blend seamlessly with guitarist Kyle Foster’s muddy, blown-out riffs in this vibrant, … Continue reading Song Premiere: Dead Posey, “Freak Show”
