The Odyssey Cult “Volumes 1 and 2”

The Odyssey Cult Volumes 1 and 2 Ben Allen, music editor Devotion to a cult based on sprawling, ambient, feedback-laden guitar improvisation is no easy task. For the uninitiated, The Odyssey Cult is the brainchild of Ethan Miller, a musician known for embracing classic rock sensibilities and down and dirty garage music. On this release, we find Miller with only …

Album Review: Lyndol Descant “Reach Up”

Lyndol Descant Reach Up Sam Greenspan, contributor On her self-produced second album, the sublimely talented Lyndol Descant gives us a recording that is melodic and sweet listening for anyone’s ears. I should clarify, that last descriptor could easily be misconstrued as a milquetoast synapses, as if it could just as easily be background music – quite the opposite. Imagine a …

Jacuzzi Boys – Ping Pong

Adam Jacobs, contributor Who knew Florida had hipsters? Anyway, the Jacuzzi Boys, a rock trio from Miami proves just that. Jacuzzi Boys latest release Ping Pong isn’t going to blow your mind with musical innovations but it will leave you with a smile.

Of Montreal – Innocence Reaches

Many who’ve written about Of Montreal immediately pinpoint the influences of two avant-garde, pop idols: Prince and Bowie. But 2016’s …

Pony Death Ride – Cat Sounds

The Dirty Bird, contributor I resent that the stoners at Savage Henry asked me to review this album. They are trying to pander to my love of cats. Sure, I’m surrounded by indoor pussy at home, but that doesn’t automatically mean that I’m going to love some ridiculous album that’s all about our feline friends. I mean, c’mon, how stupid does …

Album Review: Feral Ohms

Feral Ohms Feral Ohms Amanaka, Contributor Remember getting thrown up against a wall and liking it? That’s what Feral Ohms feels like. A good old fashion ass kick straight to the ears. The name “Ethan Miller” was enough to get me interested. Miller has a stellar track record of musical outlets, playing in bands such as Comets on Fire, Heron Oblivion …
