Strand of Oaks Harder Love

LISTEN: Passing Out by Strand of Oaks

Have you ever heard or listened to song and think to yourself, when did X artist release this song only to check and realize it wasn’t the artist that you were thinking about? Just me? Oh well.

While … Continue reading LISTEN: Passing Out by Strand of Oaks

REVIEW: Songs of Experience by U2

Love or hate U2 and their music, they do something that people are always talking about and to find the longevity they have had and still have in the music world isn’t magic or luck, it’s the know how and the fearlessness in trying something new and sometimes sticking to something old. As a long time U2 fan, there are albums that are instant timeless classics … Continue reading REVIEW: Songs of Experience by U2

The platform is a source of untapped greatness and also a source of crap. Gratefully, Bruno’s music falls into untapped greatness. When he released … Continue reading LISTEN: Breath Less by Bruno Merz

Cool Tune Tuesday- A Taste of Silver – UTRB

I can’t work when it is quiet so constantly have something playing, listening to music all day long. Every once in awhile a song instantly grabs my attention and I stop working and see who it is.  That happened just now with  A Taste of Silver by the band Until the Ribbon Breaks. I immediately listened to it 5 times in a row and sought … Continue reading Cool Tune Tuesday- A Taste of Silver – UTRB
