The Lungs: Puddlesplasher


The news warned of rain but as far as I could tell from the window that sits a few feet away from me, the sun is still shining in the late morning hours of my current existence as I settle down with The Lungs’ Puddlesplasher. It played on a loop as a trudged through the muddy sounds its grunge atmosphere; emerging with nothing more than what’s below. Read the rest at…

Wrapped in the Covers: Pharrell “Happy”


This week I was going to do Backstreet Boy’s “I Want It That Way” because it turned 15 this past weekend, but then John Butler Trio came my way with their rendition of Pharrell’s infectious “Happy” and I knew I had to go with that.

Mikey Carvajal of Islander: The Ins and Outs of Love and Pain

It’s been a treacherous three days for this blog as I have no clue what charges came up, but after many heartaches and headaches we’re back up and running and that’s exciting because I’ve had this interview with Mikey Carvajal of Islander itching to get out. It was going to be depressing if this one had to sit in the waiting room much longer because these are the kinds of interviews you’re really excited to read over – in the end Mikey was game to gab about anything tossed his way, from burgers to love…Yup, we covered it all.

In case you’re wondering, Islander is a rock band who sits on the heavier end of the spectrum. With Victory Records on their side and upcoming summer plans on Mayhem Fest, you better get acquainted with them now if you haven’t already because they don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon.
