EP Review: From Monument to Masses – Beyond God & Elvis

From Monument to Masses - Beyond God & ElvisArtist: From Monument to Masses
EP: Beyond God & Elvis
Label: Golden Antenna Records

Only available to us lucky sods in Europe, which makes a pleasant change from the yanks getting all the good stuff, ‘Beyond God and Elvis’ is an altogether far too brief sample of what we can expect on From Monument to Masses‘ new album, due in January.

EP Review: Past Lives – Strange Symmetry

EP Review: The Host – Transmit

Artist: The Host
EP: Transmit
Label: Self Released

Hailing from Cincinati, Ohio, The Host are another example of what makes the internet such a great resource for music you might never hear. Considering I’d never heard of them, you can imagine my scepticism when an email popped up in my inbox, informing me matter of factly that “The Host will rock your world!”. Already put off, I opened the email up to find MP3’s from the band’s double EP effort, Transmit and Receive. The proof is in the pudding however, and I was genuinely impressed when I got round to giving the band a proper listen. Continue reading EP Review: The Host – Transmit
