"This album captures a specific moment in time that was spontaneous and full of creativity".

O.A.R. – KING

O.A.R.’s Wind-up Records debut album, King, marks a new beginning for the band, while also paying homage to their past. It is the seventh studio effort in a career that began with their high school recording, The Wanderer. Bringing back the title character from their first album, O.A.R. takes the listener on a journey to discover that what the Wanderer, and the band members themselves, had been searching for all along, was there from the beginning. As the closing song on the new disc states, a return “Back to One.” Inspired by producers Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Blues Traveler, Paul Westerberg) and Gregg Wattenberg (Train, Five for Fighting), O.A.R. began to hone in on the emotional essence of the songs, blending their more traditional reggae roots with new musical elements they had picked up over their fifteen years performing together. The new tracks contain moments of uplift (“Gotta Be Wrong Sometimes”), ...

DEAD LETTER CIRCUS – THIS IS THE WARNING

DEAD LETTER CIRCUS –...

When Dead Letter Circus blasted onto Australian airwaves in 2007, their bombastic yet nuanced take on alternative rock left most observers struggling to process what they were hearing. It was epic, it oozed confidence, it was intense and open all at once. It was the debut of a sound so fresh and unique that it was hard to classify. Album opener ‘Here We Divide’ is undulating, ignited by a shimmering riff from Maric and a wall of clinically precise work from the rhythm section, with Benzie’s lyrics screaming forth, at once rapid fire and soaring. ‘One Step’ is a monster of a song; “If ever a song wrote itself, ‘One Step‘ is that song for us” remarks Benzie. It’s a stadium filling track that has an undeniable, incendiary movement, that carries you to an outro waiting to deliver the first sensation of the hair standing on the back of your neck ...
