Oh Hell by The Specks

In. Your. Face.¬†That’s the feeling you get from The Specks. It’s raw-ass punk with enough energy to make you want to ride your skateboard into oncoming traffic or try to shoot the pier on your longboard. It’s probably a bad idea, but that adrenaline is pumping, special thanks to Nay, Jay, Bri, and Oli from The Specks. Based out of London, Ontario this punk/hardcore outfit has crafted their sound to their liking and relays it as well as possible in their recording. You stumble upon some punk or hardcore that sounds too polished and clean, not rugged and kick-ass enough. …

Have some funk soup with Marsoupial

Marsoupial

You don’t always need a lead singer or vocals to be funky as shit. Marsoupial is a concoction of funk, rock, metal, and so many other kinds of technical and fun music.

In fact, this link that I’ve happened to click on turned out to be something I wanted to listen to again, and then listen to their …

If You Build It, They Will Come

Everybody has to start somewhere. You don’t hop on a surfboard and instantly rip, you start as a kook. You don’t grab your first guitar and play like Yngwie. You don’t hop into your car when getting your drivers permit and hit the gas like Jeff Gordon. It’s the same with music. Sure, some people have a knack for certain things. And sure, some people just suck at some things. That doesn’t mean you give it up. You just practice and get better at it. You can aspire to be a world class guitarist, and end up finding a love …

The Holy Grail Of Microphones

Now when I say “Holy Grail”, I mean the best mic that you could do the most with. I’m sure there is some super-awesome expensive microphone that can do these things that the SM57 can do… but why buy that when the SM57 is one of the most popular and versatile microphones ever created? Here are the specifications from Shure’s website: Type Dynamic Frequency Response 40 to 15,000 Hz Polar Pattern Unidirectional (cardioid), rotationally symmetrical about microphone axis, uniform with frequency. A lot. The Shure SM57 can do a lot. One of the great things about it is that when …
