Leah Noble – Strangers Again

Leah Noble

Strangers Again

While I got this request a long while ago, great music is timeless. Leah Noble is a talented singer/songwriter. She has a pleasing voice and delivers creative lyrics painting wonderful images with her music.

Strangers Again is great 5-track EP that grabs your ear with the very first track and entertains to the very last note. Her music is lovely, emotional and moving.

Psychocide – Bad Decisions & Alcohol


Alcohol & Bad Decisions

Psychocide is a hard rocking quartet from Montreal. Their music is explosive and energetic. Their latest release, Alcohol & Bad Decisions shall be available March 3, 2017.

The album is engineered by Christian Cummings who has worked with U2, Blink-182, Switchfoot and The Used. The album is a concept album which tells the story of characters that will be in a future comic book. After the break is a music video from the band.



An advantage of being far behind on inbox submissions is I can be super-selective. You are going to love what Pseudonym.

First, I shall let this musician introduce himself. From his bio on BandCamp:

“Pseudonym is a band consisting of me, Paul Desjarlais, and other real or imaginary people. Back in Boston a long time ago I used to play bass for The Uncalled Four, and then for Haberland. After that I released a cassette album called Pabz, and later a CD called Pig Tail World. Now I live in San Francisco and I record songs when I get a chance and sometimes post albums online.”

With so many out there with a synthesizer, drum machine, minimal skills, and a computer self-proclaimed a DIY musician, it is a tag line here at Indie Nation… “We listen to bad music so you don’t have to”. Pseudonym is a welcome exception.

Wetwood Smokes

A Kick Ass Band from Orange County with Serious Classic Rock Roots

One of the good things about taking a year off is that I have lots of music in my inbox and I allows me to selective. The downside is having to listen to large doses of bad stuff for the sake of protecting your ears. This band gave my ears a break from audio torture.  Wetwood Smokes contacted us asking for our take on their second release Organ Donor.

Since then, they have released their third aptly named, Our Third. I contacted Chrystian because I was unsure what they would most like reviewed and, based on the information at their website, I was unsure if they were touring and still a trio.

Chrystian, replied. They are now a quartet and, told me to – what I liked best.

Full Trunk

Hard Blues Rockin’ Band from Israel

Happy New Year all. I am still digging through my inbox backlog. No worries great music is timeless. Let us all kick off the first Monday of 2017 with some awesome rockin’ blues from Full Trunk.

Previously known as Nisman Trio this Israel-based band really kicks ass. I immediately listened to and loved every track… even though, at times, I can’t understand the lyrics. Don’t let the fact that some of their material is in Hebrew, they have plenty of Tunes sung in English.

RIP George Michael

RIP George Michal

While I was never into Wham, I do have much respect for the late George Michael. Kissing a Fool is one of my all-time favorite songs. In my humble opinion, he matured wonderfully as a musician.

Unfortunately, he moved on to the great band in the sky. He passed peacefully yesterday. I shall always remember him as a great lyric writer, a powerful vocalist and activist for gay rights.
