Long time friends of the site and label Maximón stopped by for a gut busting chat in promotion of their upcoming release “If Yes Do”. The “interview” was largely unprompted, I kept the camera rolling during the 75+ minute conversation, interjecting a total of like three times with questions.

About 18 months ago my beautiful little cocker spaniel Charlie came running into my office and in the moment of excitement knocked my external harddrive off of the top of my computer. As I went to pick the unit up it began humming and grinding- one of those sounds that I knew in that instant could
Frederick the Younger have been friends of This Man for a long time, recording an episode in 2014, playing our Halloween House Show that same year, and recording two Christmas specials. This past weekend the band released their long awaited full length debut ” Human Child” to a packed house at Headliners. Opening were Voodoo

I picked up a copy of Nikki Lane’s ‘All of Nothin’ album in a grab bag from Guestroom Records about a year ago. As I worked my way through the stack of 20 or so cd’s I found myself going back to Nikki Lane’s record time and time again. I’m not typically a fan of country music,
One of my favorite Louisville band’s, Julie of the Wolves, made their triumphant return at a fundraiser for an organization built upon the efforts of the band.
