G-Eazy‘s The Beautiful & Damned has a few notable notes on it including some dropped...

Detroit indie rock band Flint Eastwood, fronted by Jax Anderson and her brother Syblyng...

The early days Suuns, with tracks like “Black Hills,” were more, well consumer friendly, which undoubtedly put them on the map and “Up Past The Nursery,” admittedly, is […]

  • Thursday night at Toronto’s Mod Club offered a snapshot of Canada’s healthy electro-indie landscape. Marking the start of Milk & Bone’s North American and European tour, the evening kicked-off with Oshawa’s very own Dizzy — a young, four-piece band producing dreamy, electronic tracks, a la Purity Ring. Fronted by Katie Munshaw, a songstress with a […]

Rakei’s first big break was his collaboration with Disclosure on “Masterpiece” from last their acclaimed album Caracal but his own fan base runs much deeper than that, as […]

The Edmonton MC has returned after a five-year hiatus to release his self-titled, fourth studio album. As he describes it, the album is “a bold and personal tour de force,” that is as much about self-reflection […]

  • The Death Valley girls are part of the Burger Records family and it seems that family subscribes to a very powerful spirituality, the Church of Rock and Roll. I would go as far to say that Bonnie Bloomgarden is...

  • I called the boys over a Burger Records during their radio show and they were kind enough to take some time to talk to me about their current tour, Burger A Go GO. The duo is incredibly enthusiastic and...

  • I was able to have a quick chat with Julia Kugel of The Coathangers. We were able to discuss the latest release comin from the threesome and short, west coast tour they’ll be doing with Burger Records via the...

  • Dengue Fever is currently on their West Coast tour. The band has been together for over 15 years and has traveled the world, started their own record company and overcome a language barrier. Senon Williams, who plays bass for...

  • ANT’LRD is the brainchild of Colin Blanton (no relation, don’t worry this FMJ is not practicing nepotism) While originally from Birmingham, Alabama he has spent the last few years in Chicago and now Portland. I had the chance to...
