Mundo 15 – Fifteen “Must Follow” Artists on Social Media

Mundo 15 – Fifteen “Must Follow” Artists on Social Media

It’s the era of social media, no questions about it. Everyone uses it.

For musicians, it’s a great way to not only promote themselves but a means to share their thoughts and […]

Mundo 5: The Remarkable Omnichord

Mundo 5: The Remarkable Omnichord

We, at The Revue, are admittedly music geeks (although nowhere near the level of Alan Cross). We carefully read the liner notes to see if an artist may give a nod to an unknown and obscure band. We’ll spend hours on Soundcloud and the internet scouring for music. We’ll go to garage sales, check out the Salvation Army’s stash of […]

Mundo 5: Five Artists You Must See Live

Mundo 5: Five Artists You Must See Live

This week’s list is dedicated to those “lesser-known” artists or bands that you should see live.

We didn’t know what other metric to use, so we went the easy route. So with that, we present to […]
