14 Questions with Ryan Hunter of NK

When I had heard the news that Envy On The Coast had decided to call it quits I was really bummed. Especially considering that I had missed their last show in SLC. I followed the band’s social media pretty religiously waiting to see if by some miracle they would re-form or we would get to … Continue reading

14 Questions with Night Verses’ Nick DePirro

I love going to concerts. I really, really do. However, over the past year and a half I have tested that love. Before Bearded Gentlemen Music existed I would catch a show only when a band I was really in to would roll in to town. There have been times within this past year or so … Continue reading

Record Review: YEW – Too EP

So I’ll start by being completely honest in saying that when I heard some of the initial teasers and demo tracks that were leaked by Yew over a year ago I was very underwhelmed, but I have learned quite a few times that you cannot judge an album based on any of these sound bytes.

Cooper was officially announced as the new bass player for the band at the end of April 2012. Coheed and Cambria … Continue reading

Adopt This Album! – The Incendiary Mad Men (Bear Vs. Shark: Terrorhawk)

Adopt This Album! Bear Vs. Shark – Terrorhawk (Equal Vision – 2005) So it happened again… It was the same as before. The same as it always is.  A dream.  Or as a I am beginning to see it, a vision. I have now experienced the same dream more times than I can count on both … Continue reading

Record Review: Murder By Death – Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon

Murder By Death Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon Bloodshot Records (9/25/12) A very common descriptor for Murder By Death’s sound is “unique.” You can’t read an interview of the band, or a review of any of their records without the mention of their genre-bending music stylings. I myself have certainly said the exact same things. Being … Continue reading

Muder By Death / Ha Ha Tonka – Bar Deluxe SLC, UT 8/15/12

Before I begin my review of the show, I would like to go on record saying that Murder By Death may very well have landed themselves in my personal top 5 favorite bands. Yes, I know this is a big statement. This didn’t happen spontaneously, nor did it happen just in the recent past. Murder By … Continue reading

Bon Iver / Feist – Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Golden, CO) 5/31/12

While I have never looked into any particular concert at Red Rocks, I have been aching to see a show there for years on end.  It is highly regarded as the best concert venue in the United States. Honestly, have you ever heard anyone that has had the pleasure of seing a show there say … Continue reading
