VONAMOR - ‘Take Your Heart'

Ok, this one is a little creepy in a Marianne Faithfull meets Nico meets Siouxsie kind of way. By the time this song is halfway done, you know you’ll need to hear it again so you can thoroughly process what…

Adi Sun’s ‘Twin Flame’

Fuck. I needed this. Longing but poppy and melodic, Adi Sun forces you to nod your head to the darkest yet also very sweet and vulnerable lyrical exploration into the impossible: attempting to explain what it feels like to be…

Premiere of Citified "Sleep Sound"

North Carolina's Citified is back with "Sleep Sound", their new single from their upcoming record Lie Like a Painter via Fort Lowell Records due out December 10th. BMN is stoked to host the premiere, which is consistent with their…

PHNTMS: PAPER FLOWERS

If I wasn’t watching the video that goes along with this band I wouldn’t have guessed their vibe. To me it comes off a little Kelly Clarkson although I assume from their look that they are trying to be more…

Inner City Basement : Colour & Sound EP Review

Dark End Times Sounds For Your Face!

Brilliance, as in, the solar light flaring as it burns up a doomed planet somewhere. Such crisp production. So sad, so smooth. I love this release. Thank you once again, France.

I’m never going home again  
I bought my ticket to the show

I’m never getting old…

Subtastics - Collector’s Edition

Baltimore is smelling a little fresher today! In the recommended interval for changing your refrigerator's baking soda, pop punk practitioners, Subtastics, have recorded and released their first full length album. This 12" LP, on recycled, mixed color vinyl hit the…

DAVID WILSON AND THE SUMMER HUSBANDS: A CITY, A MARRIAGE

If you’ve ever heard David Wilson’s previous project Miss Ohio, a local North NJ band that was kind of indie rock mixed with some Wilco you’d be surprised to hear some of the musical elements of his new project. Their…

BABYSHADES: SUMMERHEARTS

About a thousand bands currently sound like this. I don’t mind it but man, that Drive soundtrack really inspired a lot of songwriters huh? This feels 80’s in texture and feel. I always think of Simple Minds, Tears For Fears…

INCA BABIES: WALK IN THE PARK

This reminds me of something and I can't quite put my finger on it. It's self -described as prog but in more of a Yes way but that mixed with almost The Posies and The Smiths. It has a nice…

DAN VAPID AND THE CHEATS: RUNAWAY JANE

Dan Vapid sports an amazing resume listing bands from The Queers to Screeching Weasel but this, this is so far from amazing. First, I fucking hate jokey songs. Unless you are Childish Gambino, Flight Of The Concords or possibly even…
