Parca Pace

Parca Pace by Parca Pace (Review)

Remarkably pleasant to the ears, even at its harshest, while still delivering a challenging and unpredictable listen.

Plone’s analog synth music is at its best when it’s most whimsical and playful.

It’s Hard to Find a Friend by Pedro The Lion (Review)

One word could sum up Pedro the Lion’s music: humility.

Live: Roseland NYC reveals a band that not only puts out great albums, but puts on one heckuva live show.
Oceanic - Raspberry Jam

Melodramatic dreaminess with more than just a hint of twee and shoegazer pop.

Life in a Bubble Can Be Beautiful by Red Stars Theory (Review)

If I look at the album’s high points, I could listen to a double album of that stuff.

The best electronic pop money can buy?
