Red Wanting Blue Releases 'Light It Up' - The Band's 13th Studio Album

(COLUMBUS, OH) -- Columbus, Ohio's indie rock stalwarts Red Wanting Blue released their thirteenth studio album, Light It Up, via Blue Élan Records on June 7, 2024. This marks their second album for the boutique Westwood, CA based indie label and the first the band has self-produced. Years of non-stop touring have not only buoyed their ever-growing fan-base across the country but has also helped solidify the relationships within the band; making this new album their most cohesive yet, capturing the camaraderie of a band that's built its entire career on the road, discovering (and rediscovering) itself one exultant, joyous, communal night at a time and a testament to their enduring musical evolution.

Fantastic Cat Releases Sophomore Album and Video for "So Glad You Made It"

Against all odds, Fantastic Cat has successfully released their sophomore album, Now That's What I Call Fantastic Cat, on June 7, 2024 via Missing Piece Records.

Ferocious Designs releases 'Open Your Eyes' EP

Ferocious Designs, the music project of central New Jersey-based songwriter Brian Kelley, has released a 5-song EP, Open Your Eyes, following the title track's 11th-place (tie) finish in last month's global FediVision Song Contest that included a field of 72 entries.

The Makin Waves Song of the Week is "Crash" from Kanak's Ed Stasium-produced EP, "On the Outside."



New Release Review - 'The Dead Don't Hurt'

Viggo Mortensen's Falling was exactly the sort of intimate, talky drama you might expect an actor to choose for their debut as writer/director. For his follow-up Mortensen has opted for something that seems very different on the surface, a western, but while there's gun-slingin', horse ridin' and a villain clad in black, it's very much a character-based western of the sort that were common before the Italians stripped the genre down to its action basics.
