You Indie Feature: Chad Wells (Cricketbows, The Jackalopes) of Wells & Co. tattoo

Daytonian Chad Wells, who was at one time the frontman on Misfits-inspired punk band the Jackalopes, released Home under the moniker Cricketbows in 2010 completely defying expectations for his output.  The homegrown psych-rock owes significant debts to Roky Erickson and Syd Barrett, and delivers Krautrock-esque epics that are a fry cry from horror movie inspired, [...]

You Indie Feature: Brandon Phillips of The Architects

That snotty Midwestern drawl and hard-nosed Midwestern work ethic embodied by The Architects has served them well.  They’ve brought certifiably stellar live performances to kids across the world.  In explosive frenzies of drums and roaring guitar are where The Architects thrive, as they deliver unparallelled no-bullshit rock that is as gutsy as it is authentic. [...]
