Mike Marino Comes Alive on New Release

Singer-songwriter Mike Marino is more than just a Alt-Country laced artist that hails from the East Coat, but can also be viewed as a ‘listening experience’. Recently giving a listen to his new album Tomorrow’s Yesterday, I was immediately drawn to his heartfelt sound. This album blew away any expectations I had going into it.
With twinges of adult contemporary style laced throughout, Marino creates music for the masses. Marino takes the performances on the record to a whole new level, adding an intimate and intricate touch on the piece. His lustful vocals speak volumes in every song, showcasing his musical talents throughout.  “My Old Town” breathes a glorious life into the album s it shows Marino’s accessibility and honesty as a songwriter.
Soulful vocal harmonies accompany Marino on the album, which is a nice addition to the collection of songs “Turn It Around,” proves to be an epic piece in its own right, chiming in right from the start with a bright tones that takes us on a musical journey.
Marino’s voice is accessible and this is perhaps his best performance on the record (but it’s a close call because they are all epic in their own right). Closing out the album is “Lonely Road,” which brings things out with a bang. The  guitars are bright, and are accompanied with harmonious vocals that bring the song and record to life. Mike Marino is creating music for the masses, so open your ears and listen in.

The Pinkerton Raid Share Prominent Release


The Pinkerton Raid prove to be as intriguing as their name. Fronted by the eccentric singer Jesse James DeConto, known for his echoing indie vocals, he is joined by an equally as talented band which hails from North Carolina.

Just unleashing their newest release, Tolerance Ends, Love Begins, the record takes you on an unexpected musical journey that will leave your ears ringing…in a good way. Filled with stunning tracks, sit back and get ready for the ride that is The Pinkerton Raid.

Their latest single to hit the streets this past month, “Righteous Rain,” helps to set the band apart from the rest. The vocal harmonies make this one an instant favorite, as it is one of the catchiest pieces on the record by far.  Alongside bright harmonies that echo throughout the record, the album as a whole is brought to life with resonating guitars, and an array of other instruments that all fit together nicely.

Rest assured, as you will be pleasantly surprised with this gem from The Pinkerton Raid. Pick up your copy this week on Bandcamp and CD Baby respectively.

The Manimals Release “SEVEN”


NYC glam rock band The Manimals release their new record on April 24, in conjunction with the highly anticipated Season Six premiere of Game of Thrones! SEVEN is a concept album inspired by George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire– a lovingly geeky tribute that is electric, emotional, and epic. Titled SEVEN, it focuses each of its seven songs on a different character’s point of view- mirroring a technique employed by Martin in his bestselling series.

SEVEN was recorded in Brooklyn with Nate Jasensky. It is available digitally on Bandcamp and iTunes, and also as a limited edition hand-made map of Westeros that contains the download code.

Singer and writer Haley Bowery has been creating and posting art, writing, and behind-the-scenes content daily for over three months, which has been exclusive to Patreon donors, but it is also released as bonus content with purchases of the album.

The first video from the album is the track, “Talk,” which you can watch here:

“Talk” is told from Tyrion’s point-of-view, so we thought it would be fitting to make our first video in a bar, as he is a champion drinker. Since they also wanted it to serve as an introduction to the band, they chose their favorite filthy rock ‘n’ roll dive on the Lower East Side, Clockwork, to film the piece. Directed and filmed by Vonesper Studios, the plan was to tell a basic story about outsiders and loners coming together for one night of ridiculousness, and it was brought to another level by our drummer Matt’s unexpected- but somehow perfect- costume.

The song reflects Tyrion’s thoughts upon leaving King’s Landing, so there is melancholy and bitter-sweetness there… but told via upbeat pop punk, which reflects the relentless wit that has helped him survive in this world- he’s rarely too depressed for a good self-deprecating joke or a clever retort.
