Last year we enthusiastically shared Sydney-based indie-rock quartet Monks of Mellonwah‘s Neurogenesis, an EP that showed off the group’s technical ability and strong songcraft. And after a year of releasing increasingly great great music like their Sky and The Dark Night concept EP, the Monks are finally ready to release their first proper LP, Turn The People. Listening to the album, you get the sense that the band has fully come into its own skin. Musically and lyrically, the album is confident and polished rather than wide-eyed and over-reaching like many debuts.
“Like What They Like” begins like a faucet being turn on full blast. One moment there’s silence, and the next, the song is on full blast. Goodman doesn’t have time for intros with a song like this. It’s too urgent. Its message too important to waste any time. That feeling of urgency and immediacy keeps up throughout the whole track. It’s under 3 minutes and every second counts, every moment is filled to the brim. For a song that sardonically criticizes the musical landscape, that kind of sonic megaphoning is the only way. And although Goodman may be young, he’s smart enough to know that.

From the opening bars of Say What You Mean, Allison Weiss, a young Brookyln transplant, asserts herself as a powerful force with her sweet voice, energetic guitar riffs, and clever and honest lyrics. Bringing together the edge of The Strokes and uniquely perceptive lyrics about young romance that give Tegan and Sara a run for their money, Weiss’s second full-length album stands out amongst other indie-pop/rock records by eschewing the requisite apathy and bath of reverb in favor for killer pop songs in the truest sense of the phrase. The album perfectly encapsulates the ups and downs of what it’s like to be a twenty-something figuring out your place in life and love.
Terra Terra Terra, a Florida-based Pop-Rock band is gearing up to release their sophomore album on Round Kid Records. The Space We Create is a collection of big anthems and intimate lyrics. Soaring over heavy guitars and powerful drums, every melody on The Space We Create is so catchy that on repeated listens, I feel like I’ve been listening to this album for years.
Talk about old school! I remember hearing Matt Pond PA for the first time during an episode of the O.C. back in 2004. The song was “New Hampshire” from their fifth album, Emblems. Ever since then, I have yet to find another group that is similar to their unique mix of acoustic and electric guitars.
With over six albums and an entire decade’s worth of musical experience, Matt Pond PA is still going strong with their latest album entitled, The Dark Leaves. With its earthy tones and eclectic mix
