[EP Review] REBEL – Locations

I recently talked to REBEL’s frontman Micke and asked him how the band’s new release, Locations, was coming along. Micke said that he was excited and extremely proud of their work. I honestly didn’t expect anything less from REBEL. But then I got worried when he said that this project’s sound was more mature. When I hear the word “mature” used to describe a band’s sound, I tend to kind of freak out. In my mind, when a band says their sound is mature it means... Read More →

[Top 5] Top 5 Local Music Happenings For 2012

I’m actually looking forward to a few musical events that are happening this year. Some of the ones on this list hit closer to home than others. I’d also like to point out that this is an absolutely personal list and has nothing to do with my team at antisteez. And this list is not necessarily in any order. All those disclaimers said, let’s get on with it. I’m GENUINELY excited about the fact that two of my favorite local bands are coming out with new releases. I won’t... Read More →

phoenix/NEBULIN – Ranked #2 on Amazon.com’s Best Sellers for Goth & Industrial MP3!

I was very irresponsible for not letting you guys know this a lot earlier, but time to me is like this wormhole where every day is the same. Anyways, if you guys were ever into the industrial scene (whatever is left of it), then you guys should know about phoenix/NEBULIN (Yes, that’s how it’s spelled so no calling the grammar police on me…). These guys have been around for a bit now and I heard of them when they were using Propellerheads Reason as their drummer (or keyboardist)... Read More →

Planelifter – Fuzzy Rock Music For That Ass

I’m particularly picky about what music on the local scene I listen to and that’s not to say that I’m complete snob, but it’s been awhile since I heard a local rock band that truly blew me away. I’m not saying Miami music sucks (Trust me, it’s FAAARRRRR from that.), I’m just saying I’m very picky about what I want to write about. And I have strange taste in music in general. However, I was directed to check out Planelifter and listen to their EP “As... Read More →

I recently had the chance to throw some questions at YarleN about what musical endeavors lie ahead. (Photo Courtesy of NefariousGirl.com) 1. What’s on your To-Do List, YarleN?

Chillwave in Miami: AbdeCaf Reaches New Heights

For someone that has only had an activated solo project for the past 3-4 months, AbdeCaf has been making a lot of noise. A WVUM Interview and music showcase had taken place a few weeks ago, and a couple of weeks ago opened up for Com Truise at Bardot. Right now AbdeCaf is near completion of one of his EPs and continues to work towards his other musical ventures like selling beats. The big news also includes one of his tracks being the only track favored by DIPLO on SoundCloud. Well I hope you all... Read More →

Interview with Abdecaf

Damian C.’s Perspective on AbdeCaf I have mad respect for people that just wake up one day and tell themselves, “I’m just going to do this all by myself” and when the advancement of technology  for music especially, we’re able to make music on our own. A lot of my favorite musical projects start as one man bands such as Nine Inch Nails and M83. So whenever I hear local musicians in bands talk about doing their own thing, I’m more than likely to listen considering being in the same boat.... Read More →
