Meet and Greet: Air Circus

Who: Air Circus

What: Alternative rock

Why: It’s always a good time when Air Circus is playing. If my neighbors weren’t watching me out in the garden, I might bust a move out there. They’ve seen me in my pajamas so there’s nothing left to lose. It could be my own little garden party with Air Circus.

Picture Me Broken: #AtoZChallenge

Photo: Joseph Bradley https://www.josephbradleyphotography.com/



Who: Picture Me Broken of Hollywood, California
The current members are Brooklyn Allman and Dante Phoenix.

What: Alternative Rock


Why: The band hasn’t done anything new in several years. They are still active. You can find them on social media. So thank God for that!
Hopefully, during this time of isolation, Picture Me Broken can fix whatever was broken or at least put the brokenness to music. They could make a huge comeback. Please get the band back together!

FYI: Brooklyn Allman is the daughter of Greg Allman. She’s talented in her own right though.

Los Angeles alt-rock band, New Language, is following the rules by staying home. It’s for your safety as well as theirs.

While they’ve been home, New Language has made a new video for you guys to watch. It’s called, “No Time.” Most of us have more time on our hands than usual. So you will have plenty of time to check out the video, right?!

Interview with . . . LifeCycle

Today on the blog, we are welcoming LifeCycle of New Jersey. There is another band called Lifecycle; however, they are from London and play alternative/tribal music.

The LifeCycle that we are interviewing is definitely rock and roll. Let’s find out more about LifeCycle, shall we?

Who is answering the questions?

Scott Pustilnick – Bass Guitar and Backing Vocals

Band/Artist Name:

LifeCycle

Where was your first concert as a fan? As a performer? 

Going WAY back to my first concert as a fan…..electricity was just invented! My first as a fan was Van Halen in support of their first album. I was really young but my parents were into music and I was fortunate. 

As a performer, the Jersey Shore. I was in a cover band just finding my way and trying to get better.

Do you have a bucketlist? If so, what’s on it? 

I think to have a bucketlist , you have to be one of those people that refers to the bucklist.  I never refer to it so I have to say no, I don’t have one. Having said that, there are things that the band is working very hard to accomplish.  If LifeCycle had a bucket list, it would be touring Japan, then touring Japan again, and then finally touring Japan.

What was the last thing that you read?

Good Question!  I am reading a Steven King book right now but the last thing I read before this book is called “The Four Agreements”.  I highly recommend it if you are trying to be happy and not be an asshole to people you love.

What are you listening to at the moment?

JAZZ! I am down the “rabbit hole” with all things Jazz right now. From Chic Corea type fusion to more traditional Chet Baker and everything I can get my hands on.  Apple Music has been a game changer. For hardly any money , you can have more music then you could ever imagine. Not only is it convenient and you can share all this music with friends, Apple Music has the most obscure albums ever recorded.   

If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing? 

We have a YouTube series called “A Day in the LifeCycle”.  It’s a look at the band off stage and its very stupid at times.  The band loves to do it and I end up editing the videos and releasing them every other week.  If I wasn’t a musician, I would be making videos for other musicians. I love it and its art. Art is art.

Who would you like to collaborate with in the future?

I think LifeCycle would benefit from a collaboration with Rick Wakeman.  Rick’s keyboards and piano work are insane and have been a part of progressive rock and he even played with Black Sabbath on some tracks.  Some of songs would really be a good fit for that kind of partnership.

What do you want people to know about your music?

I want people to know about our music….period.  It’s all about awareness. Our music is real and we actually play our instruments. The songs are put together well and we give a shit.  We don’t write things we cant play live. People are smart and can judge for themselves. We just thank everyone for taking the time to listen to us or watch us live.  LifeCycle totally appreciates your valuable time. Stay safe and may the Schwartz be with you!

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Blame Zeus

Blame Zeus. Seethe

The new album, Seethe, from Blame Zeus is rockin’ from the start until the end. It’s one of the albums that I want to turn the volume up and wake up the teenagers. By the end of the month, they will also probably know the words to “The Obsession Lullaby” and “How to Successfully Implode.” You’re welcome kids!

 

Their music is progressive/alternative metal/rock along the lines of Alice in Chains. They have a wide variety of influences that appear in their music. Blame Zeus could play whatever type of music they want and will sound amazing.

 

There are many decent rock bands with female lead singers but none of them sound exactly like Blame Zeus. Sandra Oliveira definitely has powerful vocals that takes the band to the next level. You can have the best band but if the vocals are lacking then no one hears anything else. Luckily for Blame Zeus the whole band rocks!

Blame Zeus is from Oporto, Portugal.The band has been together since 2010.


I would like to play this on the way to a rally for women’s rights or while making signs for the rally. I love protest music but it can be too calming. Blame Zeus is perfect for getting fired up.

Seriously, Blame Zeus could be your new favorite band too. I recommend giving their album a chance.
