The May Company “Son of the Skies”

First of all, after going to The May Company’s web-page, and seeing a bikini-clad Allen Ginsberg with Shiva arms, I knew that this was a band for me. This 17 minute burner is by a mile the longest song that

Heavy Heart “Teenage Witch”

London’s Heavy Heart has been releasing a song a month for the past year, however “Teenage Witch” has been the first installment that I’ve had the pleasure to have listened to. It’s sunny harmonies belie the deep emotional feeling that
