New Super-Man: Volume 1 (DC Comics)

I have been out of the DC Comics loop for a bit, only keeping up to date with the cartoons and feature films. As such, we missed the initial run of New Super-man, a fascinating story that showcases new locales and a Superman-like character in Kenan Kong. Kenan starts the story as an American-styled bully in China, beating up and stealing from a fellow school mate. After the falls into a lucky situation regarding Blue Condor, government officials take notice.  Continue reading “New Super-Man: Volume 1 (DC Comics)”

Trae Byrnes – Why You So Loud

Trae Byrnes (hailing from Chicago, Illinois) begin their new mixtape Why You So Loud with It’s Lit, a song which shatters the conception of what a rock band should sound like.

The Ramona Flowers – “If You Remember”

The Ramona Flowers’ “If You Remember” is a song that is a refreshing of the 1980s new wave style. Fans of more modern interpretations of that style (e.g. La Roux, Walk The Moon) will find something to dig here. The Ramona Flowers have impassioned vocals that draw from performers like WHAM! and Depeche Mode, while the hard-hitting instrumentation presented here tie together sweeping synths, on-point drums, and haunting vocals into one of the most fun tracks we’ve heard so far this summer. With a chorus that will bury its way deep into your psyche, The Ramona Flowers showcase precisely how talented they are with this new one.

JD King – “Midnight Rendezvous”

JD King’s “Midnight Rendezvous” is an effort that draws heavily from the 1950s pop crooner and 1960s pop scene. There is a bit of fuzz to the composition that provides an aura of authenticity. The track is surprisingly deep, with multiple vocals, a depth of instruments (guitars, drums, and bass) that both do their own thing while contributing to the overall sound of the cut. The last minute or so of Midnight Rendezvous changes things up just a bit, adding a bit of echo to the mix; JD King’s latest will be bouncing around our offices throughout the summer. Continue reading “JD King – “Midnight Rendezvous””

Pop Morrison – Boi Genius

On Boi Genius, Pop Morrison is able to create a complex and fulfilling effort that takes up bits from rap, trip-hop, electronic, and 1990s/oughts hip hop.

Together, the instrumental and vocal sides of things unite to make for a track that will resound loudly in listeners ears long after the song ceases to play. A number of stylistic shifts provide a boost to the momentum of Boi Genius, keeping fans on the edges of their seats throughout the entirety of the single.

Dying Fetus – Wrong One to Fuck With (CD)

Dying Fetus is one of those artists that are always on the list of bands I use to scare away my non-metalhead friends, especially those who subscribe to the “metal is noise” school of thought. Just to bristle their jimmies some more, the band name itself is like adding cayenne to their already bleeding ears. I cannot get enough! Continue reading “Dying Fetus – Wrong One to Fuck With (CD)”

Creative Iroar Go Weatherproof Bluetooth Speaker

The Iroar Go Weatherproof Bluetooth Speaker from Creative is a perfect purchase for the summer months. It will yield tremendous sound that is surprisingly loud for the a device size of the Iroar Go. The speakers provide great highs and lows, ensuring that one can bounce through rap, rock, and even podcasts without the sound seeming distorted or otherwise “off”. This is largely done through the “Roar” button which provides an equalization effect that is a bit more customized than factory settings. The speaker can be placed in one of two distinct configurations, allowing for a wider radius or a more in-your-face sort of sound.  Continue reading “Creative Iroar Go Weatherproof Bluetooth Speaker”
