Providence, Rhode Island’s The Dear Hunter have been making a theatrical version of ambient hard rock since 2005. Musical mastermind Casey Crescenzo, along with his brother Nick, create a full, powerful sound spanning the spectrum of emotion. With a versatile arsenal of -driven storylines, each album has been a heroic tale of love and loss. The new album Migrant is their first concept-free album. Claiming to be the most honest album yet, it’s clearly pure experimentation at its best. Check out the music video for the new track “Whisper” off their 2013 album Migrant below. Read More…

Florida’s Look Mexico are the best band you’ve never heard of. After a series of lineup changes, they began putting out music in 2006. With elements of math rock, post rock, and alternative, Look Mexico provide a new and refreshing take on music with each song. Chaotic yet controlled drums carry the song through sporadic, off-kilter guitar lines and bright, crisp vocals. Though their style has changed over the years, each album and EP they put out offers something new. Plus, all their song titles are Vin Diesel quotes, so there’s that. Check out the track “Not On My Watch” off their 2006 release This Is Animal Music below. Read More…
