– By Danielle Longueville – “Push Play” Mikaela Kahn’s self-titled EP is a laid-back album meant for rainy days and easy Sunday mornings. Kahn has a unique timbre to her voice, somewhere between Sara Bareilles and Taylor Swift (minus the perpetual lyrical whining over ex-boyfriends). Though her album offers a surprisin…

– By Chris Whitehead – “Push Play” From start to finish, Anti-Mortem’s new album, New Southern, will have you banging your head and pumping your fist. Some say metal is dying, but these boys from Chickasha, OK are here to prove that theory wrong. If aggressive vocals and forceful guitar riffs are your thing; you will n…

Frontman, and sole proprietor, Jesse Anderson may have set up his storefront in the modern-day sprawl of Dallas, Texas, but this record would sugge…

– By Danielle Longueville – “PUSH PLAY.” AND THEN PUSH IT A THOUSAND TIMES MORE. As a first time listener to Closure in Moscow, I was immediately impressed with the level of talent these guys possess. The influences of The Mars Volta and Chiodos resound through this prog-rock quintet without taking away from their raw…

– By Brandon Callies – “PUSH PLAY” Against Me! is back with a new album and new appearance, but the sound remains the same. The band’s new record, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, is as intense as it is heartfelt. The band tackles the elephant in the room right out of the gate with the title track ,”Transgender Dysphoria B…
