– 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 Austin Reed – “PUSH PLAY” Sure, snagging the Best Label nod from the 2013 Dallas Observer Music Awards back in November probably carried with it a little much-deserved pomp and circumstance. But the folks over at Hand Drawn Records have since acted relatively unphased. Which is weird. At the moment, they’re hummin…

– By Austin Reed – “PUSH PLAY” From the standpoint of dance music creation, production and general popularity, I’m deeply proprietary. I’m not naïve enough to believe that the best dance music in the world is born in the United States, but I’m also not quite burned enough to believe that it couldn’t. After all, the gen…

– By Brandon Callies – RATING: “PUSH PLAY” Alice in Chains returns with their Beach Boys-on-steroids harmonies and a new album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. The band starts off strong with the first single from the album, “Hollow.” Track one sets the signature dark mood that has made the band a household name and is pr…

– By Austin Reed – RATING: “PUSH PLAY” First things first: When it comes to Kanye West, inference is useless. Over the span of his six-album tenure, the gamut has been run with little left overlooked. Inaugural full-length The College Dropout launched in 2004 just as quickly as West could remove himself from the hospit…

– By Brandon Callies – RATING: “PUSH PLAY” Black Sabbath fans can breath a collective sigh of relief. The band is back with their original lineup (minus Bill Ward) and new album 13,  and they are making it count. 13 is very reminiscent of early Black Sabbath. The band kicks off like a juggernaut with “End of the Beginn…
