A One Man Ship: We Were Pirates

A One Man Ship: We Were Pirates

To the best of my knowledge Mike Boggs isn’t actually a pirate, nor is he more than one person. But when he picks up one of the multiple instruments that he has mastered and hooks up his laptop in his homemade studio, he becomes We Were Pirates. Let’s discuss, and I promise to keep the pirate puns to a minimum.

What the Heart Wants, the Heart Gets

What the Heart Wants, the Heart Gets

Relying on familiar sounding melodies and phrasing, the music of America Heart draws you into a complex and personal story. Their musical offerings are inviting, honest and simple on the surface, resonating long after the song has ended. Once you give in to their steady beat and an endearing story line or two of mice and men, you will quickly find yourself at the doorstep of America Hearts.

A Healthy Dose of Reggae Fusion

A Healthy Dose of Reggae Fusion

There’s a new face in the DC punk/reggae scene. Formed in late 2008, GroundScore released its debut album, Healthy Children, in December of 2009. The self-produced album is a 12-track mixture of reggae rhythms, ska guitar, upbeat upstrokes, and punk-style distortion. Heavily influenced by the ever-popular group Sublime, the band also adds in some psychedelic guitar solos and metered rhyme schemes, allowing them to break away from the standard punk/reggae template.
