Dublin based rock outfit Censor the Beast formed in 2013.
The group, who are in their early twenties, spent the Autumn of 2013... writing and recording their first EP,
"See Through Skin". The EP was recorded at Westland Studios and
includes a diverse range of material spread across 4 tracks.
The Gorlons are an exciting band out of Springfield Missouri
that have broken the waters and birthed a new 21st century rock that
blends rock n roll, punk, psychedelic, progressive rock, garage rock, and New
Wave into one harmonious blend of what can only be termed as “Eschaton Rock”.
Their debut self titled album “The Gorlons” is filled with awe inspiring sounds
that time warps the listener into the future as well as the past in the same
moment...like a tempest in a tea cup "The Gorlons" are here…welcome to the future of rock n roll! ~ World United Music
"I haven't forgotten my love for garage rock in my
latest renewed fervor for post-rock. Doubt most anything could diminish it, and
just to reinforce that sentiment I'm sharing one of the best garage rock albums
we've been sent in months. The Gorlons hail from Springfield, MO and they've
got a brings me straight back to the days before I even wrote this blog and was
a dumb kid looking through the CDs at the public library trying to find
anything and everything lo-fi. It shares many of my favorite qualities of the
Hentchmen or the long-ago-posted Different Skeletons, as in from the simplicity
of the music that can make something incredibly full and dynamic through fuzzy
guitar, organs and singing that I find just inside the realm of intelligible
without going overboard like modern radio hits. The band, as garage goes, has a
heavy retro streak in it as it does remind me of earlier revival bands a
remarkable catchiness like The Flamin' Groovies, but of course louder and
speedier. I'd say this is produced with a skill that exceeds either of those
groups, as least as for a debut when it comes to the Hentchmen. A most
excellent driving around album, and in particular I find makes a band much more
enjoyable to re-listen to, even more so if heard while you slide your old
Caprice around on black ice driving to work at 3:30am like I did. I really must
recommend "Rollercoaster" and "Dirty" as two of the neatest
songs I have had the pleasure to review on here for a bit, yet the whole album
is solid. They've posted the album for free listening on youtube, but should
you like to support them and own a copy they're selling it on bandcamp." -
"These dudes can write a little something called SONGS.
It’s evident from their self-titled debut. Clocking in at just under 35
minutes, it’s not much of a mystery that these dudes don’t do “slow” too often.
The album is made up of attitude-heavy riffs, head-nodding beats, and fuzzed
tones, all while laced with a decent coat of psychedelic organ melodies. Shake
all that up and throw it in the same room and I’d imagine that the inevitable
explosion would result in the Gorlons. That’s not to say that they don’t do
slow songs too though; the third track “Head Cage” sounds like audio codeine
and just like regular codeine, it fucking rules.The whole thing is available on
the band’s bandcamp right now. You can give it a listen, download it, or pick
up a CD/cassette below. Have at it, kids.
Oh, one last
sidenote: isn’t the cover of this thing pretty fucking cool too?" - Stuff
Michael Mazochi has been perusing the evolution of
expression for the better part of a decade. His work ranges from folk, to country, to... indie rock, to pop, to rock and roll. His
more instrumentally dense work with his band "The Von Furs" now called "The Michael Mazochi Band" is an
exploration of pop, psychedelic, garage and good old fashioned rock n' roll
while his solo work tends towards the more intimate confessions of a solo
The Von Furs began life
as a studio project for Michael (past winner of Folk Album of the Year
and Folk Singer/Songwriter of the Year at the LA Music Awards). Based in Los
Angeles, and following an extensive string of placements on hit t.v. shows like
"New Girl", "True Blood", "Hart of Dixie", and
"Gossip Girl" along with a spot in a "Coca-Cola"
commercial, he decided it was time to put together a band of friends and musicians to play the songs he had been writing and recording. Blending a love
for 60's Americana (Bob Dylan, Neil Young), Classic British Pop (The Beatles,
The Kinks) and Indie Rock (Pavement, The Walkmen) The Von Furs set out to fill
a gap in the fabric of modern indie rock. Building upon time spent in upstate
NY and a cabin in the Angeles National Forest while tucked away and working
tirelessly, Mazochi blended together his influences to produce something new
Michael released "The Von Furs" energy filled alternative rock album "Love and Taxidermy" in 2016.
After a lengthy break from releasing full length albums under his name, Michael Mazochi returns with "The Cold War". The album is a look at the modern age and how it effects us as human beings. The 14 track album is a vibrant, exciting, and sometimes harrowing look at the effects of the times we live in and how we all need to find some sense of peace in the chaos that surrounds us.
"The Cold War" is mostly the work of one music obsessive who locked himself up in a small apartment and tried to make sense of the world around him. The album was made one piece at a time with nearly every instrument being played by Mazochi from drums to vocals. The presence of Maxwell Butler in a good handful of the songs provides a lift whenever and wherever he lends his talents.
"The Cold War" was Mazochi's most concise and directed album, one that seeks to look forward into the future while staying grounded in the past.
Since then Michael has released a folk electronica based album titled "Here Comes the Night" (2017) which is a unique exploration into the electronica / folk universe that clearly shows Michael's diverse skills as an artist as he combines his search for truth and his progressive music talents to produce a very unique album.The album was written, recorded, mixed, produced, and mastered by Michael Mazochi. ~ Favorite track: "Watching the Lines"

TAUK is hitting 2014 with their unique blend of experimental melodic prog rock
and sexy grooves. The group consists of Matt Jalbert (Guitar), Charlie Dolan
(Bass), Alric "A.C." Carter (Keyboard-Organ), and Isaac Teel (Drums).
The quartet is currently in the studio with legendary Grammy-Winning Producer
Robert Carranza (Mars Volta, Jack Johnson) to craft their sophomore full-length
album – due out Summer 2014. Carranza explains, "What's compelling is the
raw power of the band, from their light moments to full-out jamming. Music is a
language that some feel and others speak – and TAUK do both very well."
TAUK's new album is a follow up
to their 2013 first completely instrumental full-length album, Homunculus - a
record that received widespread acclaim including an "On The Verge"
feature in Relix Magazine and frequent rotation for the single "Dead
Signal" on Sirius XM Jam On.
TAUK manages to create a live
show experience to match their masterfully produced recordings. The unique
chemistry and relaxed-focus of TAUK's performance is undeniable, but their
ability to create immensely melodic and emotional music without a vocal lead is
what continues to captivate and impress music lovers across all genres. TAUK
has landed spots on the biggest festivals such as Bonnaroo, The Hangout Music
Festival, Summer Camp, and The Allman Brothers' Peach Fest and has already
joined the lineups of this year's Floyd Fest, Blackstock Music Festival,
Blossoms Blooming Festival, Rock N Roll Resort, Mad Tea Party Jam, Domefest,
Camp Barefoot, The Big What? and more! The band has played in direct support
for some of the most respected names in music including moe., Robert Randolph
& the Family Band, The Funky Meters, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Lettuce,
Dopapod, Tim Reynolds & TR3 and more.
TAUK's chemistry can be
attributed to their history. Forming in middle school, a majority of TAUK's
members have been playing together for over a decade. The group experimented
with their sound over the years both individually while studying at top music
universities and conservatories, and together as a band - always working to
find their ideal sound. It wasn't until 2012 with the addition of drummer,
Isaac Teel, and the realization the band could build a fan base around a
completely instrumental act, that the pieces fell into place. Since then the
band has continued to push the envelope of their musical vision, creating
instant fans across the country on a nightly basis

Formed in early 2013, it hasn’t taken long for The Turning
to gain a hard working reputation, which is expressed through their constant
writing, gigging and promotion of their music. The difference is polaric from
many other young bands that have the passion, but lack the mature execution.
Having recently wrapped up an extensive 12-date UK tour, the
last 18 months has consisted of multiple sell out headline shows, including
Camden Barfly and The Leadmill in Sheffield, supporting artist such as The
Strypes and Steve Cradock as well as releasing a 9-track mini album.
The Turning have been developing their very own style;
incorporating separate influences, crowd reaction from gigs gone by and a clear
vision of where they want to go. This has seen their music mutate, morphing
into injections of punk urgency with a refreshing modern flair.

The 2015 Billboard Hot 100 Fest featured a wide range of pop
radio acts, but there were a few bands in the lineup injecting an important
element that is considered vital to any music festival - rock and roll. Air Traffic Controller was one of the lucky bands
handpicked to do just that. After
letting a few songs out of the box from their upcoming full length release,
Billboard was a perfect setting for ATC to give a very large audience a taste
of what's just around the corner. The
band may be a new to the pop scene, but they've come a long way to get to the
Serving in the US Navy as a real-life air traffic
controller, singer/songwriter Dave Munro sent home demos written and recorded
during deployment. With his enlistment up, he returned to his hometown, Boston,
and discovered a surprising number of fans and collaborators, prompting the
genesis of the aptly-named band.
Nominated for an MTV “Best Break-Out Artist” Video Music
Award in late 2009 and winner of "Best Indie Rock Act" of the 2010
Boston Music Conference, Air Traffic Controller and their debut album,
"The One", found its way onto many of the Northeast media outlet's
Best-Of lists. During the height of its
radio campaign ATC's debut became one of the top three most-added albums on college
radio stations nationwide.
In 2012, Air Traffic Controller were ready for round two
with their founding producer, LA-based artist William James McAuley, better
known as Bleu. Having a home-run success on Kickstarter and raising over $12k
to support the production of “NORDO” – the team set out to create a place all
their own in the indie pop world.
Taking advantage of band member Steve Scott’s experience composing and
conducting, they went the distance and recorded a forty piece orchestra on the
song “Blame.” The album also features band member Casey Sullivan singing on two
duets “You Know Me” and “Any Way.” ATC
(including female singer-songwriter/bassist Casey Sullivan, lead
guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Steve Scott, and Dave's brother, drummer Richie
Munro) released the effervescent all-American indie pop record
"NORDO", and received many accolades and award nominations such as
the “Artist on The Verge” award by NMS. The album's most popular song from “You
Know Me” graced the #1 spot on The Hype Machine, was placed on the NPR Hot 100
List for SXSW, was named Best Indie Alternative Song in the Independent Music
Awards, and has led the band to over 10 Million plays on Spotify. The bustling single "Hurry Hurry,"
also garnered a great deal of attention, as they were named Band Of The Day by
the Guardian UK and a Top 5 College Radio act by WERS and MTVU.
In 2015 Air Traffic Controller is touring the US and ready
to launch the next studio album with returning producer Bleu, incorporating
more duets and solo lead songs with fellow songwriter Casey Sullivan,
additional strings by Jeremy Van Cleave, and percussion by Seth Kasper and Adam
Salameh. The album reaches into new, often dark, territory but is consistent
with the everyman spirit of ATC, featuring new songs “The House,” “People
Watching,” and “On The Wire” – all of which have been featured on Spotify’s
official New Music Tuesday playlist.
Citing iconic influences like McCartney, Simon, Petty,
Springsteen, and Fleetwood Mac, Air Traffic Controller keeps it honest, with
autobiographical lyrics and thoughtful storytelling. "Casey Sullivan comes forward as lead vocalist, adding a
dreamy overtone to the band's already exuberant sound" (BuzzBands LA). On stage, the band is normally a 5-piece
band, but they have been accompanied, on numerous occasions, by an entire
string section to capture and recreate the sonic landscape of their
recordings. ATC has toured the US and
London and since have been asked to perform with acts such Joshua Radin,
Kongos, The Lone Bellow, Catfish & The Bottlemen, J. Roddy Watson & The
Business, and played festivals like The Nines Fest with Dr. Dog and Delta
Spirit, Life Is Good Fest with Dave Matthews, and the Billboard Hot 100 Fest
with mega-stars like The Weeknd, and Justin Beiber.
ATC's music has been licensed by Bose, MTV, FOX, NBC, ABC,
Disney, Verizon, Toyota, Lincoln/Mercury, Ecko, Hollister, Eddie Bauer, TBS,
USA and CW networks.

Jupiter is made up of three
brothers from Temecula, California. After years of being in bands with an ever
revolving door of members, Jordan, Evan and Aaron decided to try their hand at
producing music on their own. Over the next three years they constantly honed
their singing, songwriting, production and recording skills as they continued
to discover their own sound and voices. They released Love Campaign in June
2011 and have recently followed that release with “The Fire” EP which was
released in April 2013. Having recorded and produced the albums themselves,

Deering & Down is an independent duo living in Memphis
and playing music worldwide. Originally hailing from the Pacific Northwest, the
band has lived and played music in Alaska, Los Angeles, Ireland, Switzerland,
Canada and Memphis. Called “the best one-two punch in the city” by Memphis'
Commercial Appeal, the duo describes their style as defiantly unorthodox with a
smokey Memphis flavor cast in a glow of shimmering Northern lights.
“We’ve been making music for 11 years now, and we’re confident this is our best
album yet,” said Deering. “Working with Willie was such a great learning
experience, and it really shows in the bold new direction of our third
The album features a variety of Memphis’ most well-known musicians, including
Al Green’s notable Hi Rhythm section (guitarist Mabon “Teenie” Hodges, bassist
Leroy Hodges, keyboardist Charles Hodges and drummer Howard Grimes), and Rick
Steff, John C Stubblefield and Roy Berry of Lucero.
“…Weaving the two main streams of Memphis music—rockabilly
and Southern soul—the duo has created a hybrid sound that should transform them
from local heroes to roots-rock stars.” ~ Geoffrey Himes, Washington Post
“… She's got a voice like Loretta Lynn swallowed Rod Stewart. He plays guitar
like nobody you've ever heard. Great in a bar. Better in a hotel room. How's
that for a pull quote?” ~ Chris Davis, Memphis Flyer
In January of 2013, THE AFTER HOURS hit the Los Angeles
music scene with a brand new, yet familiar take on rock & roll. With ...the guitar riffs of The Who, harmonies of The
Beatles, and the clever craftsmanship of The Kinks, THE AFTER HOURS are one of
the few Los Angeles acts that celebrate the true roots of rock and pop music
with finesse, grace and a whole lot of style.
Formed in November
2010, The After Hours (then known as The Electric Starfish) hit the scene with
a brand new flavor. Inspired by the sights and sounds of swinging London, the
mod scene, West Coast psychedelia and the original British Invasion, the band
sends its audience into a time warp to a far-out world of bright colors and big
sounds wrapped in lush harmony and the true spirit of rock & roll.

I'm not that guy that sits in his bedroom all day and writes
love songs on guitar. I'm more like a hen, waiting to lay an egg. I don't know
what color it will be, or if it will be big or small. It's just going to
happen, and nothing will change that. My music has never been easily described
by one single genre. But I consider that a good thing. It's as diverse as it is
organic, and my listeners are always telling me, “I never know what's coming
I began writing music at the age of thirteen when my parents
bought a nice sixteen track keyboard. I could make entire songs and save them
on a disk. My methods are a bit different nowadays. I no longer use keyboards
of any kind, and I don't even know how to use the samples or drum loops on my
computer program. I play everything myself; even my synth sounds are made from
scratch using an upright piano and guitars.
In 2014 I released my first official album, Nomad, which was
played consistently for several weeks at our local radio station, JPR, which
serves much of southern Oregon and Northern California. My newest album, The
Company, is an accumulation of many of my ideas from the last decade. I have
pulled many progressions and melodies from a few of my old songs and finally
turned them into the productions I always imagined them being. My improvement
as a songwriter and producer has skyrocketed in the last 2 years, and my
current progress as a producer is almost measurable with every new song I
I work full time as a dinner line cook at a local restaurant
in Ashland, OR. The job has been very good to me and I make a decent living. My
wife is pregnant with our first child, which we're expecting to enter into our
lives the first week of December. My long term goals are to earn a living off
of music and to raise a family. I would love to support my family by doing what
I love to do most, which is music. A life characterized by a flexible schedule
and no day job is very appealing to me. It is my dream.
What World United Music is Saying:
"Logan Anderson’s second album ”The Company” is
an alternative mix and blend of genres that delivers a testament and celebration
of life in all its excitement and abundance of positive uplifting energy. “The
Company” is a true blessing in every way and has become one of the most
memorable Albums of 2015 for this listener." ~ Stewart Brennan, World United

Raise Hell Over the Summer is the solo efforts of Curtis
Williams. After “The Sugar Report” disbanded, Curtis decided to write and
record one song a week for a year. Named appropriately “52's” can be heard on
his Curtis Williams blogspot page and also his YouTube channel where the songs
are archived. (Links Below)
Curtis released a
6 song EP "Twin Canals", in September 2012 and then a year later in
November 2013, released his second 6 song EP “Mechanized Electronic Joy”. The
influences ofBrian Jonestown Massacre,
The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Smashing Pumpkins, amongst others are heard in
his music, but more importantly, we have another emerging creative artist in
this music revolution. Curtis is also a designer and illustrator living
in New York City.
“Ever since I can remember I've drawn and created art. I
have an affinity towards music and film, which tends to come through in my
work. Throughout the years of touring and playing bands myself, I developed a
passion for design by creating flyers, fanzines, websites, and record covers.
Some of my biggest influences are horror movie posters, Art Deco, and punk LP's
from the 80's & 90's. I love working with others and helping make their
ideas blossom, which I think is one of the most rewarding experiences a person
can have. I'm currently designing for lilHub.com and The Vendy Awards but I'm
always open to new projects, artistic challenges, and collaborations... so feel
free to contact me.”
