Sleep Deprived Music Review: Mosey

mosey

 

What band? Name of album

Mosey. The Way We Remember. Their record label is Know Hope Records.

Genre

They are listed under alternative rock and punk rock. I think they are alternative and slightly punk.

Is it good?

It’s a pretty decent album. I have no complaints. It’s a little more laid back than what I usually listen to on the radio.

Is it different?

Not exactly. Sometimes every band sounds like ten other bands to me.

Does it remind you of other bands?

It reminds me a little bit of Weezer. Not entirely. I think the lead singer sounds like the singer for Death Cab for Cutie.

Would you recommend it to other people?

Yeah, I think other people will like it. It’s not offensive. Hardly any cursing or screaming. So if you like cursing and screaming, you might not like this album as much.

Did you enjoy listening to the album?

Yes, it was enjoyable. I didn’t feel like stabbing myself in the ears so that is a plus.The song, “By Heart,”is also really good.

I like the song “Know Your Hair.” However, I am obsessed with my hair.

 

Where can you find it?

On a scale of 1 to 5.

I’m terrible at giving scores. How about a 3.5?

evaunderfire2

 

What band? Name of album

Eva Under Fire. War. Their record label is Golden Dragon Records

The band members are as follows:
Amanda Lyberg – Vocals
Rob Lyberg – Guitar
Jeff Llewellyn – Bass/Vocals
Corey Newsome – Drums
Chris Slapnix – Guitar/Vocals

Genre

Rock and roll. Emphasis on the rock.

Is it good?

Yeah, I think it is. I was going to see them live but they cancelled. They’re from Detroit so there’s still a possibility of seeing them sooner than later.

 

Is it different?

Not necessarily. However, it’s still a pretty rockin’ album. I can see myself dancing around the house while listening to it.

Every song has a lot of energy. It could be the album that keeps me moving even though I’d rather be sleeping.

Does it remind you of other bands?

It reminds me of Lita Ford if she was the lead singer for the Black Veil Brides. It’s not a totally bad idea. . . .

Would you recommend it to other people?

Yes. Go listen to it.

Did you enjoy listening to the album?

I really did enjoy it. I will be listening to it again soon. My favorite song was “Good Morning Misery.”

Where can you find it?

Spotify, Google Play, Bandcamp.

You can also find t-shirts and other merchandise on Bandcamp. Eva Under Fire also has a Facebook Page and are on Twitter.

On a scale of 1 to 5 stars.

I would give it a  3.5 out of five stars.

Confession: #blogtober16 

After blogging for three  years, I don’t have that many secrets left to tell. There is something that I want to tell but then again it could ruin everything. I may be exaggerating again.

Most of the time, I listen to rock and roll music. When my kids are in the car, the music is generally Top 40 – only because it’s light and fluffy. If the music is light and fluffy, then my kids are not so aggressive and angry. Happy kids = Happy mom.

So here it is . . . . every night when I’m driving to work, I listen to the Sweat Hotel with Keith Sweat. It’s old school R & B. It’s intoxicating and I can’t help it. It’s like honey for my ears or something.

No one knows. Not my kids. Not my boyfriend. Not my mother. Nobody. . . . There’s a little Keith Sweat reference for you.

Keith Sweat: Nobody

There’s also a section of the show called “What’s Your Confession?” Coincidence? Possibly.

12 Favorite concerts: #blogtober16

Honestly, I have been to many, many concerts. It’s hard to say which one was the best. So I’m going to name my top twelve favorite concerts. I tried to just live five or ten but I could not do it.

1. Santana. It was an amazing show. Unfortunately, I can’t find any pictures. I think my camera was broken or misplaced.
2. Joni Mitchell. She did an album of jazz standards. I think she still sounds great no matter what she sings.
3. Miss May I. They are awesome.

4. Chaka Khan. I could see the color of her eyeshadow. I had never been so close to the front stage before.

5. Stone Sour. Epic. I wish it didn’t have to end.

6. Lyrnrd skyrnd. They rock. Probably more than most of the young dudes in bands.

7. Parliament. I blame this concert for my hearing loss. This picture is so old that I had to login to Myspace to find it.

8. Being As an Ocean

12. Korn

I was hoping to see D’Angelo but he cancelled. I think he has potential to be my favorite.

This a summer, I missed every show that I wanted to see. Red Hot Chili Peppers. Prophets of Rage. Slipknot (FYI: I used to be able to tie a slipknot.) Whenever I get to take a vacation, I’m just going to concerts and the beach. Maybe a concert on the beach. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.

Interview with . . . September Mourning

image

 

Who doesn’t love it when two of their favorite things combine to make something extra special? Two of my favorite things – music and comic books- have come together in one band, September Mourning. Worlds colliding can be an awesome thing.

I’m hoping that they will be coming to a comic book convention near me as soon as possible. In the meantime, Emily Lazar, aka September Mourning, has agreed to do an interview.

 

1. Can you describe your group for those who are new to you?

We are a Dark Alternative Hard Rock Musical Graphic Novel Art Project. In layman’s terms, we combine rock music with storytelling through stage performances as the characters from our own original comic book series as well as other media that is in development.

2. How did the main character become half-human?

September’s soul was marked by Fate (in this case personified) as a soul that was to be collected. Fate sends the reaper Riven after her. He observes her long enough to fall in love with her and becomes the first reaper ever to refuse to do the deed. Instead, he gives a part of his power and his gift of eternal life to her. She is transformed into a human reaper hybrid with no recollection of her past/ human life.

3. What is going on with the comic book project?

We have published 2 books through Top Cow comics. The second one releases with the album on July 29th. We intend to finish this story arc in future issues.

4. Have you performed at comic book conventions?

Yes we have performed at a few… most noteworthy, the Atlantic City Comic Con. We hope to be doing a lot more of these in the near future.

4B. Are the comic fans receptive to the band and your projects?

Yes definitely. They enjoy seeing something in print form come to life before their eyes.

5. What has been your biggest accomplishment?

Making this entire vision come to life so far… through the comics and the music and the costuming and the performance and the story lines… and of course reaching so many of our fans which we call our Children of Fate.

6. Where did the idea for September Mourning come from?

I wanted to create a world… a total immersive platform of entertainment through music and story. The story stemmed from my obsession with death and the afterlife. The story became my way of controlling the things we know nothing about.

7. Have you ever had interactions with internet trolls? If so, how to you deal with them?

Yes all the time. In this day and age it is very easy to sit behind a screen and fire off on something without any fear of real confrontation. My way of dealing with them is to ignore them. The more people talk, negative or positive, the more awareness of your project spreads and grows. Bring on the haters… we have a lot of passionate fans that will counter anything they have to sling at us.

8. You’ve switched record labels several times. Is there a reason for the changes? Are you happy with your current label?

Not really actually …  We had a distro deal for some demos in Europe which we fulfilled very early on in our career as a project. We were signed to Virgin for a minute but now we are signed to Sumerian. The staff at Major labels changes so much… if the person who signs you leaves it can be a real detriment to your growth as an artist. We wanted to find a home that supported the entire vision and had a track record of actual artist development. Sumerian is great like that. A rarity in labels these days.

9. The makeup is amazing. Does September ever go do regular stuff in full makeup?

Like go to the grocery store haha… well she’s a supernatural being that can only be seen by those about to die and Claire because of her rare power. So to answer your question… even if she did do those things you would never know because you can’t see her hehe.

10. You’ve been on tour with Mushroomhead. Did you ever get to see an old school show? Also, how amazing is it to tour a with big names like Otep and Marilyn Manson?

No… My first Mushroomhead show experience was actually on that tour! Incredible visuals and very cool sonics. Marilyn Manson is always inspiring to tour with. I look up to him for what he accomplished in his career, and how true to his art and message he is. I’d have to say my dream tour would be with My Chemical Romance though… if the rumors are true and they get back together. Bring on the Black Parade!
