Danny Malone

Trending Tuesday: Danny Malone

Danny Malone’s new record, Balloons, seems a far cry from 2009’s acoustic pop laden Cuddlebug.  The new LP has a more mature feel, and the production has a darker, more eclectic arrangement.  Lyrically, however, Malone still maintains his biting wit and sarcasm.  Recorded in 10 days at Engelsholm Castle in Denmark, the compositions feature instrumentation […]

Artist Spotlight: Riders Against the Storm

Riders Against the Storm’s (RAS) format of creating beats and poetry is a rare bird as they work as a husband and wife duet. Jbro and Tiger Lily produce their message side-by-side with a spoken word-Hip Hop/Funk infusion that keeps the history in the present. The reincarnation of M.L.K. and Malcolm X is seeded in […]

ben cina

Artist Spotlight: Ben Cina and Sol Cat

Crooning with a smooth, jazzy style, Ben Cina’s voice can pull at your heart with whistful R&B melodies then bites back with a soulful growl. With a band that rivals Maroon 5’s tight pop and Stevie Ray Vaughn’s blues chops, his neo-soul sound blends hip-hop production with acoustic interplay and strikes a particular chord in […]

Smoke and Feathers

Artist Spotlight: Smoke and Feathers

When you combine awe-inspiring, heavy electric guitar, deep bass, soul-shaking rhythm, and an unbelievable stage presence you get one thing: Smoke and Feathers. Over the past several years Smoke and Feathers has grown to become “the” psych rock band to see in Austin, Texas, and with good reason. It doesn’t take long to be swept up by the southern psych […]

You’re scared but you want to see how deep the rabbit hole goes. The vibrant, vivid imagery and the ambient, chant like movements under the harmony, Sorne is the […]
