The Edgy Alternative Pop Rock of Sugar Lunch

The Edgy Alternative Pop Rock of Sugar Lunch Yes, we said Sugar Lunch and the best part is, the music is as good as you want a band called Sugar Lunch to actually sound. There's no putting your finger on any exact genre per say but the record has it's own undoubtedly fun brand of pop. The first single "Luv", surely hits that acoustic alternative rock vibe and is incredibly honest in it's own way. Thing about it is, once the song is over, you find yourself wanting to groove to it again. There is a rebellious teenage feeling about it. Like someone that shaves their head out of spite for what their parents said. The track is followed by "Medicine", which is far more 80's indie pop with a great bite to it. "Upholstery" is next up and has a light creepiness to it but still the pop persists and you find yourself digging the song and it's alt rock glory quite a lot. The "Ticks" EP keeps going in these directions but alwa

Inside the wild world of ‘Love & Hip Hop,’ where the line between reality and fantasy is blurred

A dozen production crew members are crowded into a narrow corridor at SIR Rehearsal Studios in Hollywood when "Love & Hip Hop" star Ray J and his wife and costar Princess Love Norwood arrive with their 18-month-old daughter, Melody. A makeup artist gets to work on the stars as a series producer briefs them on the scene they are about to shoot. A production assistant slides a monitor on my ear so I can hear what happens once a director cues the couple, who are dressed in matching black ensembles. "Give me something interesting!" a voice echoes in my ear. "This is the last show." The scene for the season finale of the hit docu-series "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" is a rather innocuous one compared with the couple's past — like the time an argument over infidelity ended with Ray J shoving Princess Love into a pool. Today the cameras are rolling as the R&B singer and reality TV veteran ("For the Love of Ray J," "A Family

Acoustic Alt-Rock With Wes Hampson

Acoustic Alt-Rock With Wes Hampson Songwriter Wes Hampson puts all his grunge rock influences in one place with his   Uncertainty   album release. A clear variety of alternative rock, grunge, and acoustic rock come through nice and heavily without getting too heavy. The record for the most part is acoustic guitar driven and while the cleanliness of the sound is crisp and clear, that classic alternative edge hasn't gone anywhere. With instrumental guitar shorts scattered throughout the release, it's clear where Hampson's passion lies. Opening up with one of the more addicting tracks "Temptation", the track is high energy and extremely melody driven. This is a great feel and serves as a staple to the sound of the record as a whole. This album is something great to sit and soak in while it also gives the thought of how good it would be to see these songs performed live. An excellent display of  powerful and aggressively melodic songwriting while bei

Upon listening to the New Single , World’s On Fire, I was immediately sucked in both by the blaring guitars and John Moore ’ s inviting voice.

The song  “ Work It Out, continues to deliver wi

Uh Oh and the Oh Wells Pure Bread Classic Rock

Uh Oh and the Oh Wells Pure Bread Classic Rock Quite the name isn't it. Uh Oh and the Oh Wells may be a misleading band name for these guys as their self titled album is an excellent effort and a vivacious entry into the world of indie rock. Now, there are more than a few indications that this band takes a lot from classic rock bands of yesterday and that shows in their southern rock guitars and vocals. However, the album also brings in a lot of todays folk and indie rock along with it. This is a refreshing record amidst an ocean of rock bands out there. Notable songs are "Tumbleweeds", "Late or never", and "Where's The Door". All full of life and  love of rock music as well as a clear love for their instruments. Tracks are indulgent, fun, and pure while the album as a  whole is a damn good time. Fans of folk and classic rock will love this release.   https://uhohandtheohwells. bandcamp.com/ https://www.instagram.com/ uhohandth
