      I’ve almost been with RCA for a year- can I get a hoorah?! 2014 has been rough and wonderful all at the same time- I’ll let my choices speak to that.


    2. Staff Blog : Sean’s Top Ten Weird Albums Of 2014

      Posted on in Staff Blog

      This year I have spent plenty of time focusing on listening to as much music as possible. I have spanned a vast majority of genres and bands in my journey. This has also allowed me to be creative and have a variety of top ten’s that are creative and force me to think about everything that I listened to this year. I have already created a top 12 list for metal albums and I wanted to shed light on other albums that other people may have not heard but need to, for the sake of listening to something different. What defines a ‘weird’ album? Well to me it is an album that includes a lot of experimentation, different instruments and not following one style of music. Take a listen to the albums I list here and it may make more sense along the way!

      Posted on in Staff Blog

      I wish I could have picked 20 albums this year as there was so much good music in 2014. These albums however resonated the most with me and should be must haves in anyone’s catalog!

    7. News : The Honda Civic Tour At The Showbox

      Posted on in News

      This week, on the 9th, the 2014 Honda Civic Tour will be coming through Seattle’s Showbox, featuring The Mowgli’s, Echosmith, and radio hit American Authors! Tickets are still available, and start at $18 online. With a trio of rising artists like this, $18 is a steal: any of these three bands will likely come back with more recognition (and higher ticket prices). Find out more on the Facebook event page, and snag those tickets while ya can.

    10. Gallery : Cayetana, Pup, Lemuria, and The Menzingers At El Corazon 6/17

      Posted on in Gallery

      Earlier this week, Scranton quartet The Menzingers brought their headlining Rented World Tour to Seattle’s El Corazon to push the new album of the same title. Supported by Philly band Cayetana, Buffalo trio Lemuria, and Toronto punk hotshots Pup on this national trip, Rented World is being sowed to the masses. New Orleans Topshelf Artist Donovan Wolfington was simultaneously headlining in the El Co lounge, so it was a thoroughly busy night for the venerable building.
