The Dream Eaters – “We Are A Curse”

I would classify this album as an exercise in Dream-pop. The duo focuses on stripped down, dreamy, and ethereal vocals. The duo focuses a lot on harmonies, which are a serious theme of the album.   Label: Song Dynasty Play: 3, 8, 2 FCC: 4 RIYL: Beach House, The Kills, Youth Lagoon

Bonny Doon – Self Titled

Bonny Doon’s self titled album was a fun little album. The instrumentals are melodic with slow leads and down tempo drum beats. The lyric delivery is soft and smooth with melancholic themes.

I would recommend this album if you enjoy house music, the percussion was a drum & bass style. Overall, it is a […]

Sorority Noise – “You’re Not As _____ As You Think”

“You’re Not As _____ As You Think” is punk powerhouse,  Sorority Noise’s third full length album. A slower melodic album with strong guitar lead builds and climaxes.  Each song is very emotional with lyrics touching on themes of the friends dying, anxiety, depression, and suicide.   Sorority Noise did a great job continuing and refining […]
