Gum is a loud, melodic band from Oklahoma City. Their music is brimming with graceful pop melodies married to jagged, inventive guitars; bringing to mind Interpol, Smith Westerns or Television. On August 23, 2014, Gum released their first, self-titled LP; which the Daily Oklahoman called “oddly beautiful…a record to share with your friends” and Bricktown 500 called “excellent.”

Hailed for her angelic voice and haunting compositions, Molly Pinto Madigan won first place in WUMB’s Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Contest and was named “Artist of the Year” at Salem State University, her alma mater. Since her debut as the lead singer for the teen bluegrass band Jaded Mandolin, Madigan has submerged herself in the dark, luscious world of ballads, drawn to their magic, and her original songs echo with the whisperings of the American and European traditional music.
Madigan has performed extensively around the Boston area at venues like Club Passim, The Boston Celtic Music Festival, First Night Boston, Cantab Lounge, notloB Parlor Concerts, Campfire Festival, The Lizard Lounge, and The Bull Run, sharing the stage with some big names in folk music, including Claire Lynch, Scott Alarik, Bridget Fitzgerald (of Cherish the Ladies), Robbie O’Connell (of The Clancy … Read More »
Jacob McCoy Burton doesn’t have a clue. The 24-year-old Texan was gifted his first guitar at an early age, but for Burton, what molded him into a musician largely remains a mystery.
“I’m not exactly sure how I got here, or what made me want to make music,” he says.
Perhaps Burton’s music, and more specifically his distinct brand of Americana, is innate. Jacob was raised in Amarillo—a place where the kicked-up dust ruins the finish of your car, and the dirt supplants itself under your fingernails at an early age. It is “red dirt country,” or the land where iron oxide turns the soil red—and just maybe it’s the clay from that earth that has been molding Jacob’s songs all along.
Burton admits he has no family musical history, but credits his father, also an Amarilloan, for introducing him … Read More »
When you take a powerful voice with a touch of southern inflection, add great songwriting that paints pictures with vibrant lyrical images and sweeping melodies, and dress that up in a suit of rock ‘n roll clothes, what you get is Orchard Fire. At times reminiscent of Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers being fronted by Miranda Lambert, Orchard Fire is a country rock band that is equal and heavy helpings of both parts of it’s genre’s namesake.
The heart of this band are the songs. Songs that when stripped down to just Melissa Odom’s expressive alto, her acoustic guitar, the fiddle, and the mandolin, are patently country, almost bluegrass at times. Songs that tell stories of love and life in full color. The ringing, crunchy guitar work of Justin Odom and the big pocket drumming of his brother Jared Odom transport the … Read More »

Justin Garner and Nick Barker have been playing together on and off for 10 years – Nick producing Justin’s band Southpaw’s debut album and Justin playing on Nick’s last solo record. The last 18 months have seen them hunched over acoustic guitars hammering a bunch of ideas into songs. Justin loves Aerosmith and the Allmans, Nick loves the Replacements and Soul Asylum, so the self-titled album that resulted is a collision of all. Adding long time friend and collaborator “VENOM” on drums and Michael Hubbard (Downhills Home, Eagle and the Worm) to the mix, “The Heartache State” was recorded live and quickly with friend Shane O’Mara producing at his Yikesville Studio. It was just recently released this past February on Plus One records. They’re not reinventing the wheel… the old wheel still goes OK!

Formed in the spring of 2013 in Salt Lake City, UT, All Hope Contained created their own alternative/indie rock sound with influences from bands like Brand New, Radiohead, Weezer, Dashboard Confessional and Kings of Convenience. A hard-working, creative group that brings a fresh sound with lyrical hooks that you will find yourself singing.
To bring this to life, friends Chris Johansen (vocals, guitar) & Robbie Driver (lead guitar) reached out to Michael Wirth (drummer). They began working with recording engineer Aaron Dominguez at Annex Recording Studio to record their first self-produced album, Need I Say More…. The album was made available online July 2014; just in time for their first feature on Reverbnation.

Long Range Hustle, as a phrase, means thinking about the big picture and playing the long game. Long Range Hustle, as a band, means combining an eclectic set of influences into a harmonious mixture of Canadian rock – a sound that sticks with you long after the record player has stopped.
The band comes from all over, geographically and musically, but these days they like to call Toronto their hometown. They are Paul Brogee (Vox, Guitar, Violin), Olivia Brown (Bass, Vocals), AJ Fisico (Drums, Percussion, Vox), Jay Foster (Vox, Piano, Organ), and Josh Weiss (Guitar, Vox). Their diverse musical upbringings span rock, folk, classical, and jazz, and they fuse these differences together to create their own unique sound.
More than anything else, Long Range Hustle is a live band. An LRH show doesn’t pull any punches, leaving the stage soaked in sweat. … Read More »
Looking for something much better? The Moon Kids follow-up the razor-sharp thrills of their debut EP with a brand new single, Strange Thoughts On Sunday.
“For me, songs should always flick a switch in your imagination,” insists frontman David Barr. And the hazy, narcotic pop of Strange Thoughts On Sunday does exactly that – a vivid tangle of electric guitars and cascading basslines that conjures up neon lights, fairground nights and girls with bubblegum eyes.
Recorded with production legend Michael Brennan Jnr (Mogwai/Super Furry Animals/Snow Patrol), the single – and its statement-of-intent flipside Popcorn Bullshit – is further evidence of the endorphin-rush blitzkrieg that has won the band high-profile fans like movie director Richard Jobson.
Most recently, Tom Waits, Run DMC and London Grammar were among the judges who voted The Moon Kids into the finals of Nashville’s prestigious International Songwriting Competition (previous … Read More »
Number Station are an indie pop/rock band from Melbourne, Australia, featuring Chris Andrews (vocals), Marcus Smith (guitars, keyboards), Tom Beardsworth (guitars, keyboards), Jesse Burchat (bass) and David Amphlett (drums). The group just recently released their phenomenal second EP, Back Seat, on 28th November 2014.
Self produced and recorded in their Fitzroy home studio, the EP reunites the band with acclaimed US producer/mixer Chris Coady (Future Islands, Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), who mixed their 2012 debut EP, Everything Will Change, and lends his skills once more to Back Seat.
Whilst Everything Will Change was a guitar-driven burst of energy, Back Seat sees the band honing their sound and finding their funk. This time, the rhythm section steps up and guitars play a supporting role, replaced by keyboards dripping with 80s cool. The new sound is expansive, positive, and optimistic, whilst still retaining … Read More »
