From a Guys Point of View: Check Out New Song “Mammary Gland” from Wayne & Wonder

What makes country music so popular is its ability to connect real people with real life situations in an effective manner. Not only does the music tell a story but, it does so in a very candid way. Whether it is about love, loss, anger, or day-to-day encounters, the music is a powerful illustration of life, American culture, and perspective. Country music directly addresses issues that may be otherwise uncomfortable in a comedic manner, opening up dialog on topics that might be considered taboo or off-limits. Conquering this type of mountain takes a special artist or band, one not hindered by the societal pressures to conform, but those who celebrate their roots, embrace their culture, and have no issues expressing their views through their music.

When we stumbled upon Kansas City’s own Wayne & Wonder and their latest release “MammaryGland” featuring Erica Lee we weren’t exactly sure to expect from two guys singing about a woman’s milking devices, but as women; we were quite intrigued, so we just had to take a listen. Going in on possibly one of the most controversial topics of our time, Wayne & Wonder take on “breastfeeding”, a bold act without a doubt. From the introduction to the finish, the song is a fun-filled conjuring of surprises and hilariously, outrageous lyrics. The song works well to paint an awkward Kodak moment for which we have all, at some point been forced into while encountering something that is completely natural by human experience, a bond between mother and child, and the reaction by the men in their lives.

The song can be most characterized as an upbeat, easy listen, with novel charm. Reminiscent of Blake Shelton’s impromptu musical observations about life’s encounters, Wayne & Wonder will certainly garner their share of spins and downloads on this jolly track. We wonder what these fellas will come up with next. Check out their single “MammaryGland” and other fun music and videos at ShaneWayne.com and Reverbnation.

Out of This World with The Hubs’ latest EP ‘Welcome to Beyond’

The Hubs The New Alternative

Across the musical soundstage there are young, new masterminds creating their own poignant moments in history. It is often impossible to categorize the sound of these new adventurers as they often extrapolate elements from multiple sound sources, influential predecessors, and new age experiences. They are a creative and rambunctious variety that are full of youthful spirit and a zest for life not seen since the early ages of rock. While stylistically the new wave of sound stays true to the conventions of alternative music; the new breed of rocker ventures far beyond the norm to establish themselves as a musical mainstay.

One youthful and energetic band that is steadily engraving their moment in history is known as The Hubs. Based in Bakersfield, California, The Hubs are set to unleash their latest EP ‘Welcome to Beyond’, a compilation of new age, and 90s inspired alternative tracks. The album features 8 noteworthy tracks that demonstrate the band’s diverse influence and musical prowess. Likened to bands such as Weezer, The Hubs delivers a progressive sound that is far beyond their years.

The EP opens with a raging guitar and drum performance called “Rocketship”, prepping listeners for an intense adventure. It is the perfect introduction to set the tone of the record which consistently delivers an unprecedented amount of masterful compositions, quality vocals, and avid songwriting. Tracks such as “Come Closer” is reminiscent of Modern English’s “I’ll Melt With You” while “Plastic Heart” feels like an early Nirvana sound illustrating the band’s skillful ability to capture the conventions of an alternative album while appealing to a newer generation.

The Hubs -Welcome to Beyond EPLyrically speaking, The Hubs are clearly experiencing an evolution. ‘Welcome to Beyond’ handles a myriad of themes and relatable topics. Although the EP consists of 8 tracks, listeners are able to get a feel for multiple experiences in one neatly packaged delivery. Tracks like “Rut” and “Beyond” are just two of the unexpected surprises included on the EP that offer a different tone and feel. Of course, we cannot give away all of the secrets tucked away in this  record, but fans will take delight in the playful and lighthearted energy that The Hubs bring.

Hailing from sunny Bakersfield, California, The Hubs’ members include Benjamin Montoya on Vocals and Rhythm Guitar, Tyler Ochart on Lead Guitar, Adam Vargas on Drums, and Alberto Torres on Bass. The band is greatly influenced by 90s alternative rock and power pop rock styles like that of world-renowned band Weezer as well as some blues rock. The band is excited to release their latest EP ‘Welcome to Beyond’, now available for streaming on SoundCloud.

The Nasty on The Rockin45s and their Single ‘Love Song’

The Rockin45s BandWhat do you get when you mix the classic sounds of the Eagles with a dash of Kid Rock’s brazen lyrical prowess? Let us introduce you to the Rockin45s, a band that really needs no introduction at all unless of course you have been living on some isolated island in the middle of nowhere. the Rockin45s is a lively band that not only sparks the party with popular cover songs but, they are also known for delivering their own variety of foot-tapping, finger-snapping original music. For over 11 years, the band has been a staple in the party scene, appealing to a broad scope of audiences who enjoy a wide range of musical genres and styles. While on a steady roll, with no intentions of taking a break, the Rockin45s have released their latest song and video ‘Love Song’ which is already creating a major buzz online.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the release of ‘Love Song’ is a surprising twist to the constant musings of hopeless romantics that are often a bore or just plain unrealistic. Getting down to the nitty gritty, the Rockin45s hold no reservations with this envelope-pusher, while bearing it all. If you thought Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ made the ladies sweat, and wiggle with delight,  you absolutely must take a listen to ‘Love Song’. You might be left with your mouth agape feeling a tiny bit uncomfortable or possibly titillated. Afterall, great love songs tend to have that effect, do they not?

The song has an infectious rock feel to it with a lazy country ambiance but, it is also a fun and weightless listen; perfect for a party after everyone has had a few drinks. Although the band has been rocking the party for over a decade; they bring a certain breath of youthfulness and invincible rebellion to their music. Because of this, the song screams of mass appeal. Even though the band incorporates many of the conventions of rock into their music, it is evident that they have spearheaded their own unique sound.

The song lyrics follow the flow of a country song but, they are piping hot! The band tells us “This ain’t no love song; this is a let’s do the nasty on the rug song”. Early on, we are more than aware of where this song is going. Although the lyrics border along the lines of risqué, they are delivered in such a candid way that it is impossible not to relate. The Rockin45s provide a realistic look into the minds and thoughts of men and women who are often blinded by romanticism and fairytale depictions of love and force them to keep it real.

Bands, like the Rockin45s are the ones who inspire 15-year-old boys to pick up guitar lessons or, form garage bands with their friends. With the vibe of an 80s hair band, and the energy of a new age rock crew; the band which hails from Farmingville, New York currently has the Country, Rock, and Pop Charts locked down in the Number 1 Position on Reverbnation. The band consists of Matt Nappo on Guitar, Mike Scarione on Vocals, Mike Barone on Drums, and Bill Capozzi on Bass.

The lyrics are not only well crafted but they are of a tuneful variety; encouraging the listener to either sing along or ferociously press replay. “Rise & Fall” overall is an inspiring production that delivers purposeful content and a relevant message.

Hailing from Australia, Hemy & Marshall is an inventive band that continues to grow their imprint on music’s international map.
