Review:: Aftermath | Fever Fever
Fever Fever, a Columbus, Ohio based band came out with their first ever album titled: Aftermath. It was released September 16th, 2014. It can best be described as chipper. While this album has some darker more sensitive soul type tracks (Fingertips, Windward) the bulk of their songs are upbeat in sound (Hypnotized, Line in the sand). I would describe their style as simple, the best kind, making Fever Fever the ultimate mix-tape “go to.”

Festival Review:: Boston Calling Music Festival
Written by Eric Riley.
Earlier this month, I spent yet another few days in the wonderful city of Boston.
And for the third time, I was lucky enough to be spending the my time working at the Boston Calling Music Festival.
May’s production, which was the first to include a Friday night performance, would prove to be a tough act to follow. Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, Tegan & Sara, Brand fucking New – May was certainly the biggest, boldest to-date.
To be expected, and continuing with the trend of creating magic, Crash Line Productions and company built yet another spectacular weekend this September. And, not allowing themselves to be outdone by their pasts, this round’s festivities not only boasted an all-star lineup, but showed that this young festival could join the ranks of the big names.
Opening on Friday night again, which will seemingly (and, according to crowd reactions, thankfully) continue for the foreseeable future, the show was able to add in a third batch of performers – Future Island, Neutral Milk Hotel, and The National (whose Aaron Dessner has helped curate the festival’s lineup). This addition run into a few bugs in May, in regards to photo-pit entrances, overcrowding, etc., but those were remedied by the time Saturday morning rolled around. This time around, the few kinks that were present in the spring (and more likely than not unnoticed by most in attendance) made no appearance in the fall.
Review:: Right State of Mind | Holy Ghost Tent Revival
After a successful campaign on Kickstarter raising almost $23,000, Holy Ghost Tent Revival has finally released their long awaited third album Right State of Mind, and well, it’s different. The new album brings a refined maturity to this indie rock band’s unique tone. They have shed their fun and folksy skin for a soulful rock one.
