Bad Vibrations

Bad Vibrations

I think Hidden Volume Records is quickly becoming my favorite label because it seems what ever they release is gold. The Improbables new 45 single “Bad Vibrations/Giving you a Key” is no exception to this golden rule. I’m enjoying every aspect about this release; from the artwork to the sound.

Running Out of Time Single 7″

Running Out of Time Single 7″

Everyone’s doing retro now-a-days. You got the hair cuts, the vintage clothing, and not to mention the influx of organs (anatomically and musically) in music.

Stars and the Sea

Stars and the Sea

So this is another review that isn’t really about an album, but more so about the bands singles. I found the Stars and the Sea just searching through the interwebs, and man, so good. Their first single I heard was “To the Dance” and it hit me with this Joy Division like feel. Dark moaning […]
