Earshow review

Hello, everyone. 

Today I will be doing a review Earshow, a rock band from Indiana. Check out their music here, and be sure to enjoy the review!


"Earshow originally formed in 2002, with their first release “Monument” coming the following year. The guys have been friends for decades, forming many different bands before and during the current project. No shortage of solo or side projects, creating has never been a problem, its always been about the songs. The band has amassed a huge backlog of material and hope to keep making magic in the studio, playing live and balancing their day to day lives."

Earshow is a rock band from Floyds Knobs, Indiana. They are made up of four members:

Todd Fonda – Lead and Backing Vocals/Piano/Synth/Acoustic Guitar/Harmonica
Brad Thorn – Guitars – Electric and Acoustic, Lead and Backing Vocals
Rob Dupaquier – Bass/Backing Vocals
Sam Gray – Drums/Percussion/Backing Vocals

They were founded in 2002, and are with Otis Records. 

Earshow has recently released a new album, entitled 'Stop the Night', including tracks such as 'Standing', 'Stop the Night', 'Never Again', and more. Each track is recorded with excellent musicianship  stellar vocals, and energetic, incredible performance. 

The variety within the instrumental selection, the craftsmanship of the lyrics, and the need to dance along are also definitely worth mentioning, as well. They're like listening to a familiar old friend, combined with curiosity, and sheer entertainment. 

Besides studio recording, the band also puts on an incredible live show. They plan to be adding tour dates for 2013 soon to their website. 

Check out Earshow today!

Arenas music review

MissTainted here with another artist review. 

Today, I will be reviewing the music of Arenas, a hip-hop artist from Northern California. 

Check out Arenas here, and be sure to enjoy the review!


"Arenas is a Bay Area native, currently residing in the suburbs of Sacramento. From humble beginnings at an Oakland-based indie label in 2007, to west coast music pioneer Mr. Sef's 'Go Get It Records' imprint, Arenas has been working to shape his sound."

Arenas is a hip-hop artist from Northern California, with Go Get It Records. His current record is, "ORBIT: The Rotation". Orbit is available for free, and is all original content - most of which has been produced by Arenas himself.

Arenas has been collaborating with some great artists from the bay area, such as Du Damage, Mr. Sef, Damey, and more.

Arenas' music is high quality, speaking of terms in production, performance, and lyrical quality. His voice is clear. His vocal energy and lyrical flow are both what makes him a talented, unforgettable artist.

The consistency of Arenas music rivals major label artists, and anyone could see that he's going places. Unlike many indie hip-hop artists - his voice and message come through loud and clear. The vocal annotation and pronunciation certainly doesn't fall short.

His songs are catchy, and a worthy addition to any hip-hip lover's collection.

Get 'ORBIT: The Rotation' here today.
