Sinister Dexter on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream ..

Sinister Dexter is a hard-hitting 10-piece soul machine-New Orleans-style horn band, like a mix of Tower of Power, Santana, the Blues Brothers, and a pre-80s Kool and the Gang (or if you're too young for that, think Big Bad Voodoo Daddy crossed with Ozomatli and Cake). Featuring our sensational vocalist Rebecca Lipon, a hot five-piece horn section, and a tight rhythm section, we put on a high energy show that keeps you moving late into the night.

While the members and mix of genres has changed, our goal has always been to be the local band that we would go out of our way to see ourselves. For us, that means featuring a thick, powerful horn section, dance-inducing grooves, and soulful vocals (as compiled from the bands website).

Ghosts of Eden ..

"Great, melodic grunge rock with a vibe that's a total throwback to the good ole' days of the 90's, when flannel was in, the Towers were still standing, and we all still harbored a slight distrust for the Russians." - Some dude

"As of now Ghosts of Eden are unsigned, but I predict that it won't be long at all before the record label bidding wars begin." - A Geek Girl, Blog Critics

"Ghosts Of Eden are a band to keep your eye on. With a growing fan base in the US and also a new fan base here in the UK, the band are on the up to make an impact." - Michael Hughes, Founder,

"Ghosts of Eden are the hottest band to come out of New York in at least a decade." - Interviews From The Edge,
"Have a listen to Ignorance and Lies by Ghosts of Eden and judge for yourself. With one listen I'm sure you'll be just as blown away as I was. With two listens you won't be able to stop pushing the play button."
- Tricia Weight, The Examiner

GOE completed recording their self-produced debut EP "Ignorance & Lies" at Big Blue Meenie Studios (Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, Helmet, Local H, Bouncing Souls, The Misfits, etc.) All songs were written, arranged and produced by the band. "Ignorance & Lies" was released on January 16th, 2010 to rave reviews by critics and fans alike. They begin working on their yet to be titled follow up in March 2011 (as compiled on the bands website).

Cancer Killing Gemini ..

Cancer Killing Gemini's free song for June: Taxidermy Song  ( Taxidermy Song )

So we're out with Andrew for dinner one night and he starts to describe how he found a dead coyote on the side of the road. He takes it home and then, over the next few months, buries it in the ground, digs it up, skins it, guts it and boils the bones in a pot on the kitchen stove. Had it been anyone other than Andrew, I might have lost my appetite, but his suave, clever style somehow made this acceptable dinner conversation. The images of this process stayed in my head. Later that week, "Taxidermy Song" started to take shape.

We left the electronics behind for this one. Back to straight-ahead rock. Guitar, bass, drums, vocals and of course, Max's dirty clav.

I hope you enjoy Cancer Killing Gemini's free song for June: Taxidermy Song

Brooke Mackintosh ..

A natural born singer, by the age of five she was performing original musical compositions. Finding solace in writing with her dad's acoustic Fender in her teens, her passion for songwriting began.   In 2006, she relocated and submersed herself in the San Diego music scene where she met and instantly befriended award-winning producer, Sven-Erik Seaholm and released her first album a year later. Within a few years Seaholm and Mackintosh realized their true harmony potential and began performing as the duo, Seaholm Mackintosh. Now, with multilple record projects, Brooke continues her career as a solo performer and studio musician, specializing in harmonies and songwriting. (as compiled on Brooke's website)

The Nichols Family ..

The Nichols Family Gospel Hour are a band that belongs in no certain genre of music. With styles of Acoustic, Metal, Blues, Rock & Classical mixed with a depressing, bleak atmosphere. The band purposely strayed away from things that would label them a certain category/genre of music.

“We wanted to do something that we’d never heard before. We are fans of so many styles of music and bands from really mellow and beautiful to really heavy and beautiful…I love melodic instrumental acoustic stuff with violins and cellos and wanted to do something to incorporate those instruments with ideas I’ve had. As a musician, Stevie Ray, Iommi and Dime are idols…But bands like Pink Floyd, Opeth, Antimatter or Anathema are what really moves my soul so I guess that’s a part of my inspiration too.” says Darren Nichols, the guitarist/songwriter of the band. TNFGH consists of 2 brothers, David & Darren Nichols - a band of no genre. The soundtrack to a movie that was never made (as compiled from the bands website).

Redwater on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream ..

There is a part of the population that is yearning for what is true in this life. People that WANT to wake up from the coma of illusion that has been forced upon us by many external forces. Can it be possible anymore in a world of increasingly forced and processed thought, that music SHOULDN'T be made and tested for the sole reason of becoming a product to sell to the masses?

A group of people that came together to break out of this mediocrity and suffering who are not afraid to take chances on any level--Adventurous song structures, diverse & eclectic sound, going wherever the music takes them but still keeping focus on melody and emotion--A group of musicians fully engaged in pushing the evolution of music while still keeping a solid footing in what has come before.

Four individuals that bring every conceivable emotion that is in ones soul to the music they create...They go by the name....REDWATER. In the simplest sense, they are a rock n' roll band that has an undying drive to create & to explore. There are no limits, and that's the way they like it. (per this amazing band's webpage)

Pass of Era ..

Pass of EraLike all music you and I have ever enjoyed, Pass of Era seeks to move you from this world into the visceral realm of human emotion - a place where you can fully immerse yourself in a journey that builds it's own reality as time moves forward. That feeling of discovery and passion is why we are here - to write - to perform - to listen - to share. This is the world built by three young musicians from Edmonton, Alberta. This is the story of Pass of Era.
The group is currently nearing the release of their debut EP titled "The Scripted Dream" (slated for a January, 2011 release) whilst beginning work on their first full length concept album and preparing to hit the scene and bring their story to the stage. (per the band's webpage)

yes.. a Giant on the stream ..

Going to see a show should be about what happens that day, in that room, between that audience and that performer. It shouldn't be a carbon copy of the same performance from the night before. How I slept, what I ate, the conversations I had, the articles I read: all of those things affect my brain chemistry and how I'm going to interact with the songs that day. Making art is an incredible opportunity to synthesize and reinterpret our unique lived experiences and reintroduce them to the world as shared dreams of sound and light. If I used canned backing tracks I'd be robbing myself of that opportunity.

I want the freedom to make mistakes. Mistakes are far more human and interesting than mechanized accuracy. Be suspicious of anyone who wants to scrub art of its imperfections. As soon as art becomes perfect, it dies. (as compiled on the bands website)

Cool, interesting, new vibe on Pluto Radio

Menhirs of Er Grah - Different World

2qvsj84.jpgBritish musician Thomas Carter doesn't stay in one genre for very long. His project March Rosetta has two albums out on the Clinical Archive netlabel which are quite different from each other. One is a pleasant and mildly avant-garde instrumental effort of electronic music while the other is a more mainstream pop outing.

Again, Mr. Carter shift gears with his new musical project Menhirs of Er Grah. Named after a Megalithic structure in France the music is as sparse and lonely as the stone. Different World can best be described as folk music. It is simply Carter's voice and guitar with another second guitar dubbed in later. The sound is, to put it simply, quite beautiful. Carter's voice has a not unpleasant wavering quality that communicates vulnerability. The guitar work provides a steady base for the lyrics which are complex yet intimate. I especially like the title track and "Red Roses". This is slow and meandering music, easy to relax to but full of meaning

Solstice Coil ..

Solstice Coil launches crowdfunding campaign to record new album

Solstice Coil, Israel’s first alt-prog-rock band formed on the web, has officially launched a crowdfunding campaign to finance the band’s upcoming third album on indiegogo.

After self-producing and self-financing the successful debut ‘A Prescription for Paper Cuts’ (2005) and its follow-up ‘Natural Causes’ (2011), Solstice Coil is joining the latest trend in the industry and turning to its fans for help in financing the creation of the band’s new album.

Fans who choose to pledge for the album will receive a variety of unique rewards including special credit on the album, stickers, an exclusive remixed version of A Prescription for Paper Cuts, and more.

The more creative fans will even get the chance to partake in the actual album by recording vocals for one of the songs, and even sending in their own lyrics for Solstice Coil to compose and record.

The campaign features a humoristic video much akin to the band’s 2011 Dream Theater Parody, which scored Solstice Coil some major internet points. The indiegogo video includes some very surprising guests.

The first 100 people to pledge and preorder the album will receive a significant discount. This fundraiser has a fixed goal of 6,000, which means it’s all or nothing - so if you’re a Solstice Coil fan don’t wait and pledge now!

To watch the video, review the various offers and pledge for the album, click on the following link:

Alpha Prevail on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream ..

With roots in Orange County, CA, Alpha Prevail is made up of four young men with a lust for life and a passion for good, honest music.  Alpha Prevail mixes a strong pallete of hard rock force with colorful artistic technicality. Their sound can be defined as Modern Arena Rock, somewhere in the vein of Linkin Park, Paramore, and My Chemical Romance.Their unique style is pulled from the minds of lead singer Daniel Mckim, drummer Andy Gardikas, bassist Steve Stelling, and guitarist Chris Griffith.

In a phrase, ALPHA PREVAIL can be defined as Self-Actualization; the achievement of one's full potential through creativity, independence, spontaneity, and a grasp of the real world. Regardless of what your passion is, ALPHA PREVAIL is the harnessing of that emotion, the recognition of the talents you possess, and the channeling of the two to achieve your goals and dreams (as compiled from the bands website).

Cancer Killing Gemini ..

Barely in time for Halloween….
Cancer Killing Gemini’s homage to horror film cliches

Porn star, dumb guy
Full moon climbs through a starless sky
Black car, brake lights
The air in this town doesn’t feel quite right
Old man, with just one eye
That’s no reason not to trust a guy
Cliche, right here
“We should split up”
That’s a great idea
Now I want to see some vampires
I want to see the girl chased
Then I want to see a werewolf
I want to see their car crash
I wanna see the doll child
Crawling up the staircase
I want to see the porn star
Mangled in the car crash
Farm house, porch light
Let’s go inside and stay for the night
Come see what I found
“Is it a big ancient book where the words move around?”
Just then the old man
Flailing around with a knife in his hand
Outside, best part
Never would’ve guessed that the car wouldn’t start
Is the old man gonna get me
I thought we killed him yesterday
Now he’s some kind of zombie
If he bites me
I will try to eat your brains
Just shoot me in the head we’ll be okay
In the sequel I’m undead
Happy Halloween!
