Introducing… The Bloody Five [FREE DOWNLOAD]

The Bloody Five just dropped their Bedroom Music album today for FREE download on their site. Just caught wind of these guys through twitter. They have a really unique style with an indie rock feel driven by upbeat drumming with an almost metal feel, having lots faster riffs. The new digital 5-track album is a great start to their originals collection. This is a great band with undoubted potential as they gain more influence and experience throughout their career. Here is a track from the album:

Never Again

Sean Hayes – “Run Wolves Run” [ALBUM REVIEW]

Bringing a new name to the folk genre, Sean Hayes brings some great music power with the diversity of style on this album. No song sounds alike which adds to the overwhelming uniqueness brought out in his music. The genre is portrayed as folk music but I’m sensing a taste of many sounds in this album making it an instant hit. Just when you get into the sound of one song you hear the next track, it’s completely different but completely awesome. This is definitely one of the best indie albums I’ve heard in 2010. Whether you listen to folk or not, I definitely recommend this to all music lovers in search of new sounds. This guy is no joke and foreseen as a driving force in the independent music scene in the near future.

A Hero En Route – “Wary As Bears” [ALBUM REVIEW]

Bobby Angle-Lead Vocals
Jon Steiner- Guitar
Austin McCool- Guitar
Jacob Hillenbrand- Bass
Frank Legeay- Drums

This is just GREAT!!! We’re getting more and more alternative rock coming from the indie world; and with that being said it is my pleasure to introduce you all to A Hero En Route from Evansville, IN with their newest album release, “Wary As Bears”. DAMN this is a good set of tracks. Not a very large EP but these 7 songs do enough justice until their next album which I’m sure we’ll see soon. These guys are BEASTS, having 4 self-released albums since ’08!!!



“Wary As Bears” has really stepped up the bands game and overall originality. This is definitely a “whole-way-through” type of album. Even the 52 second track “Bruiser” is absolutely beautiful and adds a smooth mellow feel to the transition between the albums’ clear hits, “Curses” and “Wary As Bears”. Comparing this band is pretty difficult because they have a lot of different feels to them that many other bands brings bits of. Red Jump Suite Apparatus being a very mainstream group is very comparable along with Panic! At The Disco vocals. The consistency of this album though, definitely sets A Hero En Route aside from the inconsistency of signed musicians’ hit making mentality.




Introducing… Sean Hayes [MUSIC]

A very soothing sound with Sean Hayes single, “Garden” off of his newest album, “Run Wolves Run” available here. Not being a huge folk fan this song really captures me with a cool Johnny Cash tone and vibe to his music. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album and hope to have a review up for you all soon! Here is “Garden for you listening pleasure:

Kanye West – Runaway (Full-length Film) [VIDEO]

With the release of his newest album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” set for November 22, Kanye has been hard at work pushing new music out through mixtapes weekly. This newest work by Mr. West definitely brings a unique twist to the music video adding not only more songs to one piece of work but including a scripted storyline to accompany the music. Here is Kanye’s first Full-length film, “Runaway”

Stuedabakerbrown – “Stranger’s We’ll Become” [ALBUM REVIEW]

Let’s get right into this amazing compilation of tracks from the album “Stranger’s We’ll Become.” These guys are going to make alternative rock fun again! They have the mainstream sound and tone without the garbage lyrics presented by bands like Nickelback and Puddle of Mudd. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, These guys are professionals, and definitely have the skill and creativity to make an everlasting impression on the rock world in the near future.


Pete Marotta: Lead Vocals
Eric Sosler: Bass
Michael Esserman: Guitar
Steve Kondracki: Guitar



This latest album starts off with a bang, and easily my favorite song entitled, “Boy and Arrow” bringing flawlessly transitioned vocals to a funky back-beat on drums. It had been mentioned in the past by OutsiderVocals, in regards to their last EP Closer, that most of the songs sounded the same. With that being said I would have to say they completely turned that around, delivering a recognizable dedication to each individual tracks’ uniqueness. Also check out their awesome music videos here.

Now this is rock! “Survival In No Mans Land” is definitely one of the best indie rock albums I’ve heard in quite sometime. They have such a unique style that set them apart from the rest similar to Incubus’ creativity which brought them huge success. They have that great indie rock feel while adding the modern, spacey, and electro tones to compliment their strong original sound.Here is the band:

The tempo of their music feels extremely happy, while optimistically speaking of the many sorrows encountered from love in the past. Their hit “Night Is On Fire” is an awesome song getting alot of feedback from fans throughout the internet. The vocals and overall musical structure of “So Much” is an instant hit, making you fall in love with ME MY HEAD right away. Visit iTunes to purchase here. Having been released in November of 2009, be on the lookout for their newest work, I’m sure we won’t be let down.
