REVIEWS & GARBAGE

Hey there, here’s a bunch of record reviews to keep you warm for the next few days. We’ve been sitting on some of these for a bit, some are fresh out of the oven, and we have more leftovers that will be published real soon. Dig into them right here. We hope you found our 2014 Year End Lists helpful, I’ve wanted to revise mine a few times already. One glaring omission I made was leaving out the Sheer Mag 7″ as one of the top singles of the year. But I didn’t hear it until January anyway, by my own fault. Check it out, it’s a great powerpop/rock’n’roll hybrid. Their upbeat rockers have done a lot to keep the heavy gray skies and snow at bay and out of mind this brutally cold month. As a bonus, we also have the next installment of The Garbage Can, this time from our pal Ryan “Dinosaur” Bell, of GG King and Predator infamy. I think he did a great job (including a Venn diagram) and you can check it out here. If anyone wants to sign up for the Garbage Can, drop the editor a line, we have tons of crap to go around and the Can is on a roll – all four recent attempts have been successful. Are you up to the task? Serious inquiries only….On deck are some more record reviews to clean off the desk (blog-style), then demos/tapes and the definitive Mordecai story is forthcoming as well. Plus, Termbo Issue #2 should be seeing print in the month as well. Watch this space for more info…
