Ariel Belont “Fake” Single

I've been writing reviews for a couple of years now, but never did this with a single. A couple of days ago I got a message from Ariel Belont (Argentina), he’s been sending me files and rough mixes of his new album for a few months now, and he just released “Fake” (the first single...

Baby Scream “Sad Balloons”

BABY SCREAM is back with a collection of old demos, covers and songs that were never used. Opener "Britney Has Left The Building" is a kickass powerpop song with vocals reminding a bit of DINOSAUR JR., a song that was released on a Swedish compilation in 2016. "Cheap Perfume" is an acoustic demo with a... Continue Reading →

The Popravinas! “Goons West”

American powerpop band The POPRAVINAS are back with a 4th album. Influenced by bands like The REPLACEMENTS, they give a lot of importance to the melodies in their music as you can hear in "Do The Creep" or in "Is There Anybody, Anywhere But Here?" The POPRAVINAS also have an americana (almost country side) in... Continue Reading →

"We Are The Plague" opens the album on a dark... Continue Reading →

Tremendous “Relentless”

British rockers TREMENDOUS introduced their music with a few digital singles last year and they finally release their first album on May 15th. While "Don't Leave Our Love (Open For Closing)" or "Rock'n'Roll Satellite" have obvious UK 70s glam rock influences, you'll also hear some 80s American metal in "Bag Of Nails", "Copycat Killer" or...

Baby Scream “Just Covers”

Juan Pablo Mazzola offers us a new album but you'll only hear covers this time. He had the great idea to cover C.C. Deville's powerpop solo project SAMANTHA 7 with opening song "I Wanna Be Famous" that really fits BABY SCREAM just like a glove. After that, you'll hear a modern "AIR-ed" version of 10CC's...
