Josh Hoke Releases New Album “Ghosts and Glory”

January 29th, 2013 by | Alternative/Indie |

Have you ever played an album over and over and not been sick of it? From Waiting Here through Into the Night, Josh Hoke gives us just that feeling. His new album “Ghosts and Glory” will leave you wanting–begging for more.

Hailing from Portland, originally a Midwestern man, Josh’s rough, soulful voice paired with his guitar is reminiscent of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Iron and Wine.

If you are anywhere near Portland over the next couple of days there are a few things you do not want to miss. You can catch Josh on KZME 107.1 FM Thursday around 12 noon and also at his album release show that night 8 PM at the Secret Society.

Take a listen to a few songs off his new album, and enjoy!

 

Twin River – Rough Gold EP

August 12th, 2012 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Alternative/Indie |

This Vancouver based indie-folk band is one you will not want to miss. Courtney Ewan and Andy Bishop are a couple of kids who make up Twin River laying down some rad harmonies and living up to the brand of folk. Instantly, you will notice their gift for the seemingly contradicting–but at the same time harmonious–juxtaposition of the ominous music paired with pretty, innocent, and even an up-beat melody. Not only are they talented musicians, but storytellers as well. Take a listen for yourself to their new streamable EP.

The Chain Gang of 1974 – Undercover

April 14th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie |

I recently caught the fast-rising indie act THE CHAIN GANG OF 1974 in Denver, and I was very impressed by the performance. Kamtim Mohager AKA THE CHAIN GANG OF 1974 has a very cool dance vibe to his music, which seems to be a departure from a lot of the low-fi stuff that seems to be taking over. His track “Undercover” has influences like LCD Soundsystem and Talking Heads, but all with a more modern sound. It’s definitely a fun listen.

THE CHAIN GANG OF 1974’s upcoming album “Wayward Fire” is due out June 21st. If you’re in Colorado, you can catch THE CHAIN GANG OF 1974 playing a free show in Vail this friday supporting Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. If you’re not, just follow the CHAIN GANG on Facebook. He’s about to embark on a huge national tour, and you should check him out when he comes to your city.
