Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968 captures a full acoustic set from a considerably timid Neil Young, shortly after leaving Buffalo Springfield to take on a solo career. While Young always carried an air of wisdom and experience within his songwriting, even from such a young age, there are moments here where his innocence is able to peek out through the familiar creaks in his singing voice.
Garage punk with a hardcore groove?

The Bronx has always done well by combining the swagger of good punk rock with some of the gutsier vocals and bridges from straight-up hardcore and driving guitar riffs from decades-old rock 'n roll. This record is no exception. Matty Caughthran’s got one of the biggest voices in punk rock, as both his fans and peers will certainly attest. He puts it to good use throughout this record, maintaining the all-too-important balance between melodic and mean.

When your band carries members with musical alma maters like Choke and The Fullblast, people are undoubtedly going to hold you to a higher standard of output, be it a blessing or a curse. Passenger Action’s self-titled full-length finds Choke’s Shoawn Moncreiff and Clay Shea connecting with Ryan Podlubny (ex-Fullblast) and…
