Terriers-I Don’t Still Want To Unless You Want To

Flashback to May 2013. Terriers were about to release their debut album, Unrequited Admiration Society and I invited them to come to Handwritten Recording and do a tune for my Hasty Revelations project. I posted the song as some extra coverage for their record release, though the song was new and didn’t appear on that first album. Now, over four years later, “Anything” is the … Continue reading Terriers-I Don’t Still Want To Unless You Want To

Vérité at Lincoln Hall 8/28/17

The Machiavellis-“She”/”Grey Day Machine”

Shoegaze can come in many different forms, most of which put me to sleep. Even when it’s done well I usually find it pretty easy to tune out and snooze for a while. Fortunately the new tracks from Kent-based group The Machiavellis have plenty going on to keep my interest (and yours). I wasn’t familiar with the band before last week, though I do have … Continue reading The Machiavellis-“She”/”Grey Day Machine”
