Skid Row – “18 and Life 2015”

Skid Row – “18 and Life 2015”

Your typical Revue reader might not quite get why we’d cover Skid Row. However, they’ve recently released an updated version of their biggest hit, with their new singer. Skid Row were always a solid (and dazzling) hard rock band, and they kinda got lumped into the whole “hair metal” thing in the late 80s. However, they’ve been independent road warriors […]

Miya Folick – “Talking with Strangers”

Miya Folick – “Talking with Strangers”

“Talking with Strangers” is the new single from Santa Ana, California singer-songwriter Miya Folick. The song is remarkable, gut-wrenching, and devastatingly beautiful.

Antix – “Come Home”

Antix – “Come Home”

We don’t cover much hip hop on our site, but when we do it’s usually because the track is either sounds refreshingly different or sends a positive message as oppose to the, you know, usual subjects. London-based Antix is doing both. Combining multiple genres – soul, R&B, folk, classical, rock – with hip hop, he’s among a new generation of hip […]

Romeo Moon – “Afterglow”

Romeo Moon – “Afterglow”

“Afterglow” is from Melbourne, Australia’s Romeo Moon. The band’s most recent EP, Wander, is an expansive, cross-genre album. While you can hear the Radiohead influences – “Afterglow” echoes of Pablo Honey and “Complicated” could be the step-child of Amnesiac – their approach is very reminiscent of Winnipeg band Royal Canoe. “Tune In Tune Out” and “Come With Me” best exemplify the comparison. Like the Juno-nominated […]
