TRACK OF THE WEEK: "Dance of the Omega" by Fine Fine Titans

Written by Jayson Bussa | Thursday, 01 May 2014 10:48 |

In my humble (and often not-so-humble) opinion, Fine Fine Titans is a grossly underrated local band. At least, that was the case. This female-fronted act, which blends elements of punk, metal and hardcore, is starting to get the attention it deserves with the release of its latest album Omega.

The musical heydays of the ‘60s and ‘70s have found their way into Grand Rapids as fellow psychedelic rock bands have successfully revolutionized an era of music into something of a modern-day rising trend. The mind-altering hypnotic rhythms of guitar, vocal and organ effects has psychedelic rock grabbing a lot of attention lately.

Apparently area garages can't contain some Grand Rapids garage bands. Local venues have seen their share of acts that carry this label, many of which have become mainstays in the scene. Well, we can add another up-and-comer to the mix. Just as the music scene has evolved, so has the phrase “garage band,” which is one that has become more of a representative genre label for small independent bands like The Bermudas.

With most of its members coming out of now-defunct Tiger! Tiger!, this Muskegon-based clan is now cruising the local music scene as Secret Grief. Much appease to their growing fan base, the crew’s consistency has remained with their musicality as an indie-punk band.

Written by Colleen Schonfield | Thursday, 03 April 2014 12:34 |

“Post Alternative Indie Experimental Rock” may be a mouthful to say, but this complex genreical label is more than just a classification for the guys of Grand Rapids-based, Velcrofibs.

TRACK OF THE WEEK: “Away” by American WiFi

Written by Colleen Schonfield | Thursday, 27 March 2014 08:55 |

Sometimes, a group of savvy, young artists like the guys of American WiFi (not to be mistaken for 90s pop punksters American Hi-Fi) is just what the local music scene needs to break up the mesh of bands that believe only reinventing a genre will lead to musical success.

Written by Colleen Schonfield | Thursday, 06 March 2014 09:33 |

The growing musical affection Stepdad has received through its steady growth as a rising band may be just enough to soon push them over the edge into the indie pop mainstream. Don’t think it’s as easy as it sounds, as reaching this level of popularity doesn’t just happen overnight.
