    J. Schnitt – Speaking Esperanto COZY HOME, REVIEWS | Comments Off
    Download: jschnitt.bandcamp.com/album/speaking-esperanto I love it when someone pours their heart completely into a record, leaving absolutely nothing behind. Utica's J Schnitt is one of those someones. Some of you might know him as the talented guitarist who has been playing live with The Real Burnouts over the last few years, others might know him as a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who has produced a whole raft of albums available on his Bandcamp page. "Speaking Esperanto" was the first time I'd heard him, a 13-track album of near flawless alternative folk-rock anthems that sounded like a greatest hits compilation. It's unashamedly American, occasionally imbued with the ...

    Lenn9o9n – Distant Shores DAYDREAM GENERATION, LENN9O9N, REVIEWS | Comments Off

'I'm not,' I told him. He clicked his pen once, twice, three times and snorted through his nose. 'Tell me again how you got here,' he said. My shoulders slumped. How many times did they want to hear the same story. There was a cliff. A floating camper van. One minute I was drifting on the ocean and the next I was here. In the hospital. 'Shhhh,' I said. 'Can you hear that?' He cocked his bald ...

    Whatever – Fuzz Classics DAYDREAM GENERATION, REVIEWS | Comments Off
    inwhateverland.bandcamp.com/album/fuzz-classics I opened my eyes to silence and gloom. I felt hollow, but I wasn't sure why. My head hurt for reasons I couldn't entirely fathom. I sat up and saw that I was in a shack. Sunlight poked through a gap in the corrugated iron roof and a scrawny ginger girl sat on the bottom of my bed, sucking on a joint and studying me closely. She wiped her runny nose on her sleeve. 'Where am I?' I croaked and she spat on the straw floor. 'Bolton?' I asked. I distinctly remember that I was somewhere up north. I'd previously ...
