Listen to OBJECT OF AFFECTION

The members of Object Of Affection are no strangers to stage or studio. The Los Angeles outfit feature erstwhile members of Fury, Warfare, Lock, Lovesick, La Bonte, and Death Bells. And maybe, just maybe, if you put all those bands in a blender you might get the sound of this new one. But really vocalist Colin Knight, bassist Garrett La Bonte, drummer […]

Listen to THOUSANDAIRE

Add Thousandaire to the long long list of bands with plans permanently altered by COVID-19. The Atlanta, Georgia trio released their self-titled debut in 2020 but instead of being able to hire a van and take their tunes on the road, the band were trapped at home, their strategies stifled. If he was frustrated, frontman Andrew Wiggins was at least […]

Listen to LIES

Mike and Nate Kinsella, cousins and colleagues as members of American Football and Joan of Arc, have formed a new band named LIES. The somewhat subdued, daydreamy sound of the all-caps outfit will be familiar to fans of the duo’s previous work but there have also been a few new ingredients in each of the handful of songs they’ve released so far. ‘Camera Chimera’ […]

Listen to DOSSER

Dosser seem to be the opposite of their chosen moniker. The Baltimore boys have only been together for a few years but seem to have worked non-stop. Will Teague, Bret Lanahan, Eric Dudley, and Max Detrich, already developed a fully-fleshed sound, recorded a killer EP, and toured with the likes of Caracara and Pianos Become the Teeth. No idle bones here. […]

SHINER frontman announces solo album

Shiner frontman Allen Epley will release his debut solo album, ‘Everything’, on January 6th. While not a complete departure from his previous work, ‘Everything’ will see Epley attempting to channel the smooth grooves, soft rock, and lovelorn lyrics that he heard on the radio in his youth. Epley is calling the combination “space country”, which might not mean much until you […]

Listen to SLEEP KEEPER

Collectively, Sleep Keeper are a heavy shoegaze band from Terre Haite, Indiana, USA. Individually, Sleep Keeper are vocalist and guitarist Trevor Deoreo, guitarist and vocalist Max Pesavento, bassist Aaron Powell, and drummer Jayden Trueblood. But, whichever way you want to look at them, Sleep Keeper haven’t been Sleep Keeper for very long. Since forming in June last year though, the […]

Listen to CALM COLLAPSE

New groups made up of rock band lifers are always great. I don’t mean any part-time superstar side projects, I mean people who have been kicking out jams for decades deciding to unite under a new name and playing new music just because it’s in their blood. I’m not going to run any numbers to prove it, I don’t need […]

Listen to PILOT TO GUNNER

I should have taken my own advice here. Because despite falling completely in love with Pilot to Gunner’s debut album, the excellent ‘Games at High Speeds’, when it was released at the turn of the century, I somehow swerved pretty much every update about the New York quartet since.  Ok, so at some point I found out they released a […]

Listen to ROCKY VOTOLATO

Rocky Votolato might not need an introduction. The singer-songwriter has been a part of Seattle’s alternative music scene since the late 90s, toured with the likes of Owen, Small Brown Bike, The Get Up Kids and many more, and released a handful of excellent solo records. But Votolato has been away a while. His new album, ‘Wild Roots’, is his […]

Hear SOFTCULT cover NIRVANA

I love Nirvana. They are the band that changed my life. This here website is named after a fleeting moment in a Nirvana song, and if you wanted to hack my bank account (don’t bother, there’s nothing in there) you probably wouldn’t have to guess too many song titles before gaining access. I love Nirvana. However, all of this can […]
