Now I've got a new group to add to my Mazzy Star-inspired Spotify playlist with Audio Jane, a promising 5-piece atmospheric
I have to admit, I was never a big Pearl Jam fan. In fact, up until yesterday afternoon, when my girlfriend told me her company had a box next to the stage, I still thought they were a bunch of over-hyped, mediocre, whiny, grunge rockers who'd long since past their prime.
At 37 I finally had the opportunity to hear you in person, a long overdue meeting that took place in Fort Lauderdale's BB
We don't know about you, but we're feeling 1992.

Designs rooted in reality and heightened by the imagination. Liam Hodges' innovations have already been worn by international
Don't be mistaken -- Highly Suspect is definitely not your average "boy band." So exactly what is it about this trio that makes them so special? Well, aside from their striking good looks... just about everything.
Some of these factions have come in the form of movies, both documentary and scripted. I've seen nearly all of them. Some of are the definition of faction and others, while earnest, miss the mark. Until now.
Mackintosh Braun, a Portland-based "electro-pop" group composed of Ian Mackintosh and Ben Braun, are causing quite the stir. And not just in Portland. The band is growing their fan base in a big way. (This girl included!)
