Review – Point of View “Vultures”

Point of View has done it again.  They have whipped out another masterful EP.  Who is Point of View? Another amazing San Jose band that suffers from being from San Jose. Point of View has been playing together since The Gaslighter in Campbell was a thing.  Enough of the past. Point of View has been laying […]

Review – Superhaunted – “warrior/worrier”

Nick Nottebaum aka Superhaunted is super haunted by personal demons that come to life in “warrior/worrier”.  I never really paid attention to how close the words “warrior” and “worrier” sound but I don’t think you can have one without the other. “Warrior/worrier” is a super sad pop punk journal that chronicles one man’s struggle to […]

Review – GOTTEM “Infinity Blunts”

GOTTEM is a band that was never intended to be taken seriously, but “Infinity Blunts” seriously bumps.

This EP is the perfect […]
