Man! How boredom can benefit you! I was searching the ‘twitterverse’ for new people to follow, and what I found was this band known as The Parade. Continue reading

First off, We’ve been gone for a month now so I apologize for that!! Moving on… Wow! I don’t even know what to say about this album. Prior to the release of “Time Travel”, I had always been a huge fan of Christofer Drew’s work, so clearly I already had high expectations for this record. Continue reading
I’m not the biggest fan of rap and hip-hop, but this song is catchy as hell! I was hesitant to check it out because it was sent as a spam message in my email, but I’m glad I did. This song would be a perfect addition to your party mix! Check out the video below to listen to “Popular” by Sinatti Pop, and tell me what you think. ENJOY!
Along with a number of amazing cover songs, Epyllion has added “Wake Up” by Coheed & Cambria to their arsenal. It’s like they were spying on me in order to get me to post this, because “Wake Up” is one of my all time favorite songs. Therefore, I have to completely critical of any cover made by it. Nothing can compare to the original, but this is definitely an amazing cover, and I’m glad they made it the way they did. This cover is unique in the sense that is sounds like Epyllion, but it doesn’t stray too far from Coheed & Cambria. Thus, giving this version its own sound without getting too crazy weird like you see when some people cover songs. Click read more to see the video. ENJOY!
Their name is Galt Aureus, and they is absolutely amazing! This is a case of very talented musicians not getting the credit they deserve. I’ve watched a couple of their videos on YouTube, but one in particular really strikes a chord with me. The video below is of that song, “Coming Down”. In addition to the lyrics and instrument work being really good, the guys voice is absolutely astounding. It’s hard to describe his voice in comparison to someone else, but my best attempt is like a mixture of Incubus and Daughtry. He is really really good, and I recommend him to everyone!
I absolutely hate that there are styles of music that are considered “mainstream”. For example, listen to the majority of songs on pop music stations, I can bet my life’s savings that 7/10 or 8/10 songs there will be some sort of electronic sound or some part with auto-tune. I’m no hipster, but I hate it when ‘artists’ such as Ke$ha and Lady Gaga are on the radio and making millions of dollars when there are more talented groups out there. There are bands/artists out there that have more talent in their little toe nail than in some popular artists’ entire bodies. That comment may seem like a bash on Ke$ha and Gaga, but it’s not an attack at them, it’s at the music industry today. To me, Lady Gaga is a genius; she doesn’t have much talent when it comes to singing, and I personally don’t know if she writes her own songs, BUT she is a marketing genius. She knows how to go out there and get her name permanently lodged in your brain. Basically all I’m saying is that the music industry / audience would recognize or at least give a chance to some of those groups out there that have the talent and/or are creating/recreating their genre. And that is all, there is my rant. Please feel free to reply and share your opinion here. To see what I’m talking about by terrible music being what is tearing up the radio waves and winning all the awards, click this video of Ke$ha live.
