Stoned Jesus- Music interview

  Hello, could you introduce yourself to the readers?  - Hey we’re Stoned Jesus from Ukraine, still alive at the moment of answering this interview. I’m Igor, the vocals-guitar-songwriting-everything else guy. Could you describe your musical journey?  - From a one-man band concerned with creating a good stoner doom album back in 2009 to the eclectic and confident heavy prog trio now – quite a trip! How would you describe your sound?  - It’s something we’re constantly working on actually, and I can’t really say we’re there yet. Which really makes this journey even more exciting. I’d say a Stoned Jesus song is rather heavy yet melodic, groovy yet structurally interesting, dark yet never boring. What can you tell me about your previous four records, and how they have shaped your sound now?  - I see them as this logical progression from the genre standards towards something of our own… I’d say either The Harvest (2015) or Pilgrims (2018) is my favourite, give them a spin or two if you hav

Fonzy and Company-Touche EP Review

  Eclectic quartet Fonzy and Company  released their third EP Touche  last week. Produced by Innersound Audio, the four-track EP combines Indie. Pop and Alternative elements to create a burst of energetic rock for the listener. Formed in 2019 by lead vocalist/guitarist Fonzy Armour as a solo recording project, Armour decided he needed some company upon feeling impressed with the material recorded. Long-time friends Olivia Jury and Sam Bennett joined on vocals and bass, respectively. The trio soon released two EPS', Last Birth and Is It Me? to critical acclaim, garnering 1500 worldwide radio plays. The trio went through several lineups until they decided three was a company and they added lead guitarist/vocalist Lauren Hannah and bassist Sam Lane last year as permanent members. The EP opens with the anthemic 'The Kids Stay Home', a feel-good slab of pop-punk with a raw energetic feel and bouncing beats that set the feeling for the remainder of the release. Next up is the h

Song of the Day- Jane N' The Jungle- Dirty Dog

Photo Credit: Jim Louvau Female-fronted Hard rock act Jane N' The Jungle  return with hard-hitting new single 'Dirty Dog'. Produced by Chuck Alkazian at Pearl Sound Studio in Detroit. Lead singer Jordan White tells the tale of being sexually assaulted and left 'feeling like a dirty dog'. The Trio hail from Phoenix, Arizona and consists of lead singer Jordan White, guitarist Brian Dellis and bassist 'Big B'. They have garnered recent attention from notable networks like MTV and Spotify, as well as regular airplay on FM stations across the States. Jordan wrote this track on a napkin during a discussion of personal stories with Aryon Jones at a local Dive bar. The track's heavy grooves combine with thick basslines to convey an eerie message behind the music. White's dark melodies sound as much as being defiant as being a victim. The pounding drums and hook-laden riff make this a song that strikes the listener with its sensitive topic. Rating 4/5 Words

After years branded as The Highway Women, The newly branded ElectraQueens have revamped their sound and image. “Walk Away” is the first original song by the ElectraQueens. Their vocals and harmonies are more stunning than ever before as they quite literally walk away from everything we thought we knew about the group. While the former group celebrated country music, ElectraQueens celebrate many genres of music including country, rock, pop & R&B. "We made great strides along the way, as The Highway Women. We built a formidable fanbase, and released music and videos with critical acclaim. When we found Jeanne, Alyssa, and Gabrielle, it was a seamless transition as the three group members brought a musical diversity beyond country music. It became obvious that the timing to rebrand was now! The band loved the idea of the titled song. We have all been through so much in the past few years, including the pandemic and a shift in life as we all knew it. We wanted to launch
