Harrison Lipton, ‘Loveliness’ Review

Brooklyn based artist Harrison Lipton is here with a new LP entitled Loveliness. Harrison Lipton sets out as a multi-instrumentalist to show off his amazing ability to create a lasting and mostly coherent record.

Pilots of Venus, ‘Lady Astronaut’ Album Review

It’s finally here. After so much anticipation in their hometown, and a impressive sold out album release show at the Lowbrow Palace in El Paso, Texas, Pilots of Venus have released their debut album entitled Lady Astronaut.  This is an impressive debut LP. Right from the opening seconds, Pilots of Venus essentially stomp as hard as possible on the gas and embark in break-neck speed trip through 90’s inspired alternative rock. Taking cues from Pixies, Nirvana, and punk rock in general, this nine-track list is incredibly astonishing as well as nostalgic in a sense.
