Vans Warped Tour // Preview

Each summer there's a sense of magic when stepping into the Vans Warped Tour, and 2018 will be no exception. It's the end of an era, and while it'll be bittersweet it'll also be nostalgic as fuck. The tour kicks off on Thursday, June 21 in Pomona, CA, and is set to travel across the country with the last date being on Sunday, August 5 in West Palm Beach, FL.

Marona + Hotel Colors Split

Pensacola based artists Marona and Hotel Colors released a six track split together earlier this month. Marona takes their name from vocalist Nathan's last name, and the bands drummer, Eric Moeller, doubles as solo artist Hotel Colors. This split is well suited for rainy day listening when you're feeling introspective and reserved.

Darth Nater // Feature Friday

Buffalo based singer-songwriter Nate Noworyta has been releasing music under the clever name Darth Nater for the past seven years, with his most recent release having come out at the end of March. A Century Ago, aptly titled due to entire album revolving around events that happened (you guessed it) a century ago, is an indie folk fueled trip through time that proves to be a guide of the most detail oriented sorts.

 A Werewolf Aware Wolf // On Better Days // Album Review

If you've ever wanted an emo surf rock crossover, you're in luck. If you're just now entertaining that thought and thinking "Why the heck would I want that?" well, my friend, hear me out. A Werewolf Aware Wolf, a four piece based out of Tallahassee, FL, recently released their debut EP, On Better Days. This four track EP removes the rose colored glasses that are so often donned and instead takes a realistic approach to channeling those emotions that you sometimes don't want to entertain, all while mixing elements of indie, alt rock, emo, and, you guessed it, surf rock.
