Neverminders by In The Valley Below

“Neverminders” is another standout track from “The Belt” that immediately grabbed my attention out the first time I heard it.  A pretty straightforward guitar/synth driven song, highlighted by alternating vocals during the verses and an easy to sing along chorus of “Neverminders, Neverminders, Neverminders coming for your crown”.This track has some retro elements, I hear […]

Blame it on me by George Ezra

Wrong Side of Heaven by Five Finger Death Punch

Five Finger Death Punch’s Wrong side of Heaven is my choice this week because of the recent Veteran’s day holiday.

Baby Don’t Lie by Gwen Stefani

Hunter Eats Hunter by Chevelle

This may be a track that really makes you start thinking of another band they sound like…who is that? Oh yeah, it’s Tool.
