FLOAT LiKE A BUFFALO - DOCTOR'S ORDERS
We're kicking the proceedings off with the band from Denver who happen to be ROCKWIRED.COM's ARTIST OF THE MONTH. The band's free-form alt-rock style mixed with touches of funk elevate FLOAT LIKE A BUFFALO to dizzying heights above anyone else in indie rock at the moment. They may not float like butterflies but they pack a sting like you wouldn't believe.
SCATTERED HAMLET - SWAMP REBEL MACHiNE
We never said we were whizzes when it came to geography but isn't Pennsylvania above the Mason-Dixon Line? SCATTERED HAMLET's front man ADAM JOAD hails form there yet the band boasts some high voltage Southern rock mixed with a menacing metal sound.
CITY OF THE WEAK - CENSOR THiS
The band and it's enigmatic front woman STEF WITH AN F have found their way onto the pages and the cover of the latest edition of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE. Their latest single CENSOR THIS has all of the bombast that we've come to expect from these pyromaniacal rockers but there is just enough pop sheen to suggest that these guys have bigger goals in mind for 2017.
SEASONS AFTER - FiGHTER
This is a band that has had a taste of the good life only to have it taken away because of a bunch record label bullshit. Now, after a regrouping they are back with an EP and a single that are all about a fighting spirit and keeping one's head held high.
TIM HOULIHAN - i GET LONESOME TOO
A folk troubadour is probably the last thing you would expect to see and hear in the pages of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE but TIM HOULIHAN boasts a songwriting craft that is heartfelt and literate and it's proudly on display on his latest album ANOTHER ORION. Given the topsy turvy world that we're headed into with a new President, songs that convey the urgency of the human condition may be just what the doctor will be ordering in the next four years.
JAY KATANA - BLEEDiNG BOYFRiEND
When we spoke to Russian-born JAY KATANA in a previous ediiton of ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES, we were relieved to learn that the general populace of Russia isn't out to get us but we were a great deal more fascinated with his music which mixes the fury of heavy metal guitars with frenetic dance beats and a stark, gritty comic book side show. In this podcast we're pleased to give you at least half of the story.
VYCES - DEVIL
Fronted by DAVE NARUSZEWICZ, formerly of HEART SET SELF DESTRUCT, VYCES is a band with a sound that was made with a great deal of love and care and an eagerness to get the rock n roll dream right. DEVILS is a superb little EP and has us eagerly awaiting a full length release from these guys in the year to come.
WHEN THE CLOCK STRIKES - THE BETTER FRiENDS
The State of Oklahoma doesn't seem a likely locale for a high energy punk band and the fellas from WHEN THE CLOCK STRIKES would agree with that assessment. However these guys are committed to making the impossible possible with a blistering EP filled with equally blistering tracks.
ONE WAY RIDE - DEViL EYES
The second band on our playlist to hail from Denver and they're grasp on rock n roll will have you feeling like you never heard of the genre before.Yes, there take is that fresh. Their debut release is a celebration for sure and one htat we're betting will take them beyond the rocky borders of Colorado.
PEACH - LOVE-iTiS
A certified blues mama if we ever saw one, PEACH has been a long time favorite here at ROCKWIRED. In 2007 she was the first to win our READER'S POLL AWARD for BEST FEMALE ARTIST and now she is nominated in 2017 for the same category for her CD A NIGHT IN COPENHAGEN with THE ALMOST BLUES BAND. The lady has found herself musically and artistically in Europe and we're hoping for steadier output from here on out from one of our favorites gals.
CRAWL - MiNE
Canada! Oh Canada! In the age of TRUMP you are looking more enticing with each passing day. Of course we here at ROCKWIRED have always loved your style and one of the bands to make the cut in the premiere edition of the ROCKWIRED MIXTAPE SHOW is the band CRAWL. They've released their new EP THE CROCKFORD FILES and are packing a heavier punch sonically than ever before.
DALI VAN GOGH - GOD HELP ME (i LiKE iT)
Okay so the Canadian love fest isn't quite over yet. DALI VAN GOGH was one of the first bands to be featured in the pages of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE in our first issue back in May of 2012. In the interim, the band disbanded and DALI VAN GOGH brand became a record label with a few signings only to be siidetracked by their studio being destroyed by a fire. Out of the ashes came guitarists ISAAC KENT's resolve to get DALI VAN GOGH - the band - a second shot. We are eternally grateful. Check out our latest interview with the band in the pages of this issue.
