THE ORDINARY THINGS
YEMILY - LYRICAL AND POETIC SINGER SONGWRITER
Yemily Releases A Heartfelt "Blue Ballerina" EP
All the songs focus on piano but one of our favorites of the 5 song group is called "Bite Marks". This song is a duet of sorts and sounds almost like it's straight from a play. Allowing you to visualize everything clearly, Yemily paints a picture of youth and the mass of emotion it comes with. "Blue Ballerina" comes through shining.
ALIEN NEIGHBORHOOD - ALT FOLK-ROCK GRUNGE
Alien Neighborhood Is Grunge With Heart
MATT HIMMELSTEIN - POP-ROCK
A fresh new release from singer-songwriter alt pop artist Matt Himmelstein touches on classic rock elements and crosses it with a slight alternative tone. A deepening song that grows brings a certain level of honesty and twins it with orchestrated progressions that make this song feel like it should be in a film. A personal track with a swelling percussion and a chorus that sticks with you very well. One of the great things about this track is that you want to replay it again as soon as it ends. This seems like a new step for Himmelstein as the track is a bit of a far cry from his previous work being much heavier rock. A moving trackwell built from the songwriter.

CHASE TREMAINE - INDIE ROCK
New Indie Rock by Chase Tremaine
Songs feel like they tie into each other as they keep surprising by bringing something a little different each time.
Although "indie rock" is a broad term, we call it that to make things easier. In truth the record crunches together several styles of rock. But you'll need to hear that for yourself.

THE BYWAYS - INDIE POP-ROCK
The Byways Drop Their "Something To Prove" EPNew York based indie pop rock out fit The Byways just dropped their new EP dubbed "Something To Prove" and it's packed with varying styles of songwriting all built from a rock and pop foundation. Though all four songs on the release are quite notable, the main song of focus "Believe In Me" is a shining example of clean addictive pop music. Focusing on struggles anyone can understand, the song features some soulful guitar work and loads of vocal harmonies brightly woven together as a polished lining for the song. The entire EP is an outspoken powerhouse of driving tracks. You can catch the video for another great track from the EP called "How Did We Get Here" at Youtube.

HOLMSTRUM - ALTERNATIVE ROCK
A Healthy Dose of Metal With Holmstrum
Holmstrum serves up some pulse pounding metal in their While We Were Distant EP. Hardcore breakdowns, catchy riffs, and full throttle drummer and bassist along with guitars blasting sounds you can't forget, the EP is tied together with their lead vocalists memorable lines. Singer Kody Henry along with guitarist Alex Martinez, drummer Aaron Centeno, and bassist Landon Matson come together naturally and the songs are fluent and powerful through and through.
"Skinned Doll" crushes with it's screamo attack and combines it with a solid chorus and destructive guitars giving a sound reminiscent of bands like The Deftones and Smashing Pumpkins. With a pressure point at its ultra heavy climax.
