LOSING SCARLET is one of those musical head-scratchers around these parts. Performing regularly throughout Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin, this quartet falls into that catch-all pit known as modern rock, creating an array of unmemorable music that aims for the radio but misses by a mile. On their recently-released 8-song set LEARNING TO BLEED , the band delivers one of the year's worst...
On the eve of the 20th Anniversary of NIRVANA's landmark NEVERMIND, the folks over at SPIN have put together NEWERMIND: A TRIBUTE TO NIRVANA. Offered as a FREE DOWNLOAD to visitors to the SPIN website and Facebook page, this collection re-imagines the 1991 classic to results that are beautiful, bizaare, and blasphemous. With frequently covered-by-NIRVANA (and later collaborators) MEAT PUPPETS kicking off the...
With a quick rise and fall marked by a pair of Geffen-released albums, Alabama'sTRUSTcompany quickly dropped off the mainstream radar, announcing a hiatus in the Fall of '05. Six years later, the band is back with their first album for eOne Music. If you dug TRUSTcompany during their fast burn in the early 2000's, you may love their new album, DREAMING...

In the early 90's I wrote for two of these black and white music 'zines: Oil: The...
One of the bands mentioned back in February during my 2011: The Year that Pop Punk Strikes Back feature, BOWLING FOR SOUP have positioned themselves as a unique player in a packed field. While many of their peers have evolved into something far beyond their pop punk roots, BFS is unapologetic in carrying a torch for the light-hearted genre in which they've carved...
With ARCHITECTS OF GUILT, their second album for Solid State Records (out Feb 15, 2001), Texas-based THE FAMINE have created a prime example of how not to make an album, delivering a reminder that technical playing does not equal good songwriting. In what plays like a 40-minute collection of B-sides scraped together from the countless, faceless "metalcore" bands...
