Whether it’s in how he carries himself, his music or what he visually creates, there’s one thing you can’t deny about Barney Cortez: he has style. You can see that abundantly in his Pretty Thin EP.
The times of throwing musicians into one specific genre are fading. William Rose is a master musician and frontman, but don’t try to categorize him or The Flying Islands. Because, what they create won’t fit into your boxes. It will beautifully paint outside the lines.
So many musicians out there are doing some seriously cool stuff. Among them are the Philadelphia-based folk, Americana and indie rock influenced group Under the Oak.
If you don’t think it’s possible for music to charm the heck out of you then you are dead wrong, my friend. Listen to Domestic Blend and try not to be wooed.
If there's anyone that embodies "third times a charm" it's Josh Ostrander. After striking out earlier in his career, he has evolved into Mondo Cozmo and created something so soulfully infectious it's hard to ignore.
Listen, I couldn't really tell you what jangle pop is, but if that's what the cool kids are calling Beach Fossils, I dig it.
