Artist Spotlight: The Skulx

Written for Tonight At Dawn by @KralTunes Typically, A seven second video of wailing guitar, pounding drums, and an ear-piercing scream is not worth getting too excited about.  However, when those seven seconds are the world’s introduction to the Foxy Shazam/Cadaver Dogs collaboration known as The Skulx, even this minimalist offering is enough to make fans of their respectiveContinue reading “Artist Spotlight: The Skulx”

Artist Spotlight: The Gotobeds

@KralTunes Naming your band after a member of the influential English rock band Wire, AND releasing your album on a label named after a song by said English band, can be seen as either unshakeable dedication or grounds for a restraining order.  Fortunately for Pittsburgh post punkers The Gotobeds, option A is the more likely choice. Comprising of formerContinue reading “Artist Spotlight: The Gotobeds”

Artist Spotlight: Audios Amigos

Interview conducted by @KralTunes A band that blends instrumental surf, country, latin, soundtrack and garage music (all while wearing mariachi-inspired attire, no less) can be a tough sell for us rock and roll-leaning individuals, but when that band is AUDIOS AMIGOS, consider this guy sold. Having released several E.P.s of original material mixed with faithfully coveredContinue reading “Artist Spotlight: Audios Amigos”

ALABAMA SHAKES: SOUND AND COLOR

@KralTunes Let the revival rage on! ALABAMA SHAKES’ newest album, Sound And Color, expands on the 60’s/70’s soul/rock hybrid of their debut album and brings plenty of da funk (but not too much funk…excess funk can lead to all kinds of trouble). To keep things fresh, Alabama Shakes introduce several new wrinkles into the mix. Sound and Color starts with aContinue reading “ALABAMA SHAKES: SOUND AND COLOR”

Courtney Barnett
