———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
“Death is a Warm Blanket” is a much heavier sounding album from MICROWAVE and all previous works due to the band entering phases in life that are life-altering and eye-opening. Singer Nathan Hardy left the Morman church and entered the world of unprotected adulthood finding easy access to drugs and alcohol on the road. Gone is music with happy endings and enter music reflecting the dark reality of the world. Having just wrapped up a UK tour and about to start a US tour, you can find their third album only at PURE NOISE RECORDS!
Honeysuckle is a progressive folk act that blends older influences and traditional instrumentation with modern effects and inspiration. “Fire Starter “ comes two years after HONEYSUCKLE’S sophomore album “Catacombs”. Coming to you via ANTIFRAGILE MUSIC and produced by Dan Cardinal and HONEYSUCKLE. Recorded and Mixed By Dan Cardinal at Dimension Sound Studios, Boston, MA.
