TRACK BY TRACK: Deathproof by Krooked Tongue

On Friday May 5th, Bristol based trio Krooked Tongue will be dropping their sophomore EP, Deathproof, and let me tell you gang, not one, not two, but all four tracks rock. The band has already released two highly infectious singles, “Lupines” and “Velociraptor” from the EP and the last two follow in their footsteps. Krooked Tongue are vocalist and bassist Oli Rainsford, guitarist Dan Smith, … Continue reading TRACK BY TRACK: Deathproof by Krooked Tongue

TRACK by TRACK: Past Selves by Sub-Radio

I discovered Sub-Radio a few weeks ago, when the Instagram algorithms suggested I might like a reel where the band ‘covers’ “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston. I won’t say parody because their version “I Don’t Wanna Dance with Nobody” is the embodiment of my introvert self. Sub-Radio immediately hooked me – the vocals were clean and vibrant and the music just as … Continue reading TRACK by TRACK: Past Selves by Sub-Radio

TRACK x TRACK: Pitch Black Sunset by The Hellfreaks

One thing I found surprising about the latest from The Hellfreaks album, is that Pitch Black Sunset clocks in at a mere 28 minutes. It is the shortest of their 5 studio albums. But the length does not distract from the fact that Pitch Black Sunset is 28 minutes of sheer in your face and face melting metal and rock. The album kicks off with … Continue reading TRACK x TRACK: Pitch Black Sunset by The Hellfreaks

TRACK x TRACK: Return to Carnegie Hall by Ryan Adams

I somehow missed that Ryan Adams released a 4 song EP live from Carnegie Hall. Appropriately titled Return to Carnegie Hall, the 4 songs were recorded from his May 14, 2022 appearance at the venue. The EP features a lovely piano version of “Two” from his Easy Tiger album. I always found the original guitar driven version emotional but there’s something gut wrenching with the … Continue reading TRACK x TRACK: Return to Carnegie Hall by Ryan Adams

TRACK x TRACK: Eat Your Young by Hozier

To satiate fans until his upcoming album, Unreal Unearth is released later this year, Hozier released the 3 song EP Eat Your Young on St Patrick’s Day which was also his birthday. (Happy Belated Birthday good sir.) The 3 songs clock in at 11 minutes and are a savoury taste for fans old and new. With falsetto interludes, “Eat Your Young” has swagger, sway, and … Continue reading TRACK x TRACK: Eat Your Young by Hozier

TRACK x TRACK: Weapons of Choice by Carbellion

The album was produced by Chris Djuricic (Nonpoint, Soil, Novembers Doom) and mastered by Andy VanDette (Beastie Boys, Porcupine Tree, Rush). Amplify the Noise got a sneak peak of the album and have been rocking out to it since it slid into our inbox and I think we’re ready to give … Continue reading TRACK x TRACK: Weapons of Choice by Carbellion

TRACK x TRACK | Adventure Songs by Aaron Wylder

Adventure Songs by Aaron Wylder, who grew up in the Cayman Islands and now calls Canada his home, is a playful three song EP that while it may be short on time, clocking in at nine minutes is big, well on adventure (pun intended). “Don’t Let Me Down” kicks off the EP and I instantly am reminded of the swampy vibes of “Same Ol’ Me” … Continue reading TRACK x TRACK | Adventure Songs by Aaron Wylder
