2.- Dizzy Panda Panda Points the album contains 15 songs with each coming with their own little story and resulting panda points. There’s a lot of growling darkness running throughout the album, giving the songs depth and their tales a grim feeling of no hope. You can keep reading our review here.
3.- Fia Nyxx our Hollyood glamster garnished with a rockstar twist, is releasing her sophomore album, Red Umbrella. Throughout the album, Nyxx’s “provocative and impassioned lyricism,” embodies “the craft of storytelling at its height.” Our review is coming soon…
4.- Driving South Dog Trap Road is the trio’s latest effort to create a collection of songs that really aim to capture their Live sound and approach to making music. The opening track “Dog Trap Road”, gives the EP its title and quickly lets us know what these guys are all about. Honest, personal, and easy-to-listen music. You can keep reading our review here.
5- Astrakhan Retrospective In a world where it’s hard to differentiate one rock band from another, Astrakhan sound like no one else, bringing several worlds of rock music to one point. Mixing elements of classic progressive rock (sometimes with the edge of progressive metal) with a singer/songwriter touch, Astrakhan guide the listener through a cinematic soundscape. Incredible songwriting and melodies that don’t get out of your head, ’70s prog elements, instrumental and vocal mastery on the highest level, and a consciously earthy sound production are inspired by the classics—yet sound exceptionally fresh.

6.- Josette Daytona Fair is the debut music project release from Josette. After her first two singles made it on NZ On Airs New Tracks list, she is on a strong trajectory to make an impact. Using pointed lyrics, fresh production choices, and cinematic atmospheres, this music is something new for the consumers ear. Creating worlds of love, pain and relatability, there is something on this project for all music lovers as you hear the honest story telling in this body of work.
7- Eleanor Northern Towne in their own words “we’re a twee/jangle pop band from the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina. We hope to bring some much needed peace, love, and coziness to the world. Inspired by the sounds and styles of previous decades, the five songs on Northern Towne were written after Kayser went through a particularly rough time personally. Working through that time inspired him to write a collection of tunes that were focused on love, loss, and longing
8.- The Smokes G.O.V.T. Graffiti Filtering through the endless rage, The Smokes are an American Rock band formed in Spokane, WA in 2014. Matt Slater (drums and vocals) and Himes Alexander (guitar and vocals) combine garage rock, punk and soul in just the right ratio. Lo-fi forward, pithy riffs create a heavy, punk influenced back beat that lay a foundation for the smokes’ thought provoking song structures and subjects.
G.O.V.T. Graffiti, was recorded with legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino and is the “best sonic realization of our band to date”. The album was intended to be a lighter perspective on life, but then a pandemic happened, and a nation wide uprising for civil rights was born out of Minneapolis. As the album was delayed, the songs on the album began to change and evolve into not a lighter perspective, but a more raw, honest, vulnerable snapshot of where we are with hopeful eyes (if you can still muster hope) looking to the future.
“G.O.V.T. Graffiti” is confident within its garage rock, punk, and soul definitions. Substantively it’s an exploration of personal growth, and a shedding of the naive examination of American society and culture, to garner true critical thought and solutions to the messes we find ourselves in.
