UFC 214 Main Card Preview and Predictions

There's been a significant lack of stacked cards in 2017 mainly due to fighter availability, injuries, and complications making weight resulting in late cancellations. This weekend the Honda Center in Anaheim California hosts the first mega card of the year. The card features three title fights including the much-anticipated rematch between Jon

A Split Review

This is the single strangest review I've had to write. In one part because I never thought I'd be singing praise for another M. Night Shyamalan film after the slew of flops and missed opportunities he's put out.  In another part because this is simultaneously a 'great' and 'just okay' movie.

The State of Horror: Horror’s Isn’t Dead

  Written by Josh Brewer, December 16, 2016, at 4:30 p.m. Tweet to: @theJWBrewer Horror isn't dead; but the argument surely is. I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard - or, let’s be honest, read some jerk’s opinion - about how horror is dying. The claims are all the same: There are no

The Well launch U.S. tour dates with Beastmaker & R.I.P. this week

Austin trio The Well launch more U.S. tour dates this week, including shows with Beastmaker and RidingEasy labelmates R.I.P. (whose debut streets December 9th.) See dates below. The Well are supporting their recently released, critically-praised album Pagan Science. Consequence of Sound is streaming the entire album album HERE. (Direct Soundcloud). The band was also honored last month with the release of its own beer, the Pagan Science DIPA, courtesy of Baltimore, MD's Oliver Brewing Company. The beer can features the album cover art and can be seen here. The Well was prominently featured on The Walking Dead star's Ride with Norman Reedus TV show on AMC. Not only has the band composed and recorded the series' original theme song, they also appeared on a recent episode with Reedus, an avowed fan of the band and all things RidingEasy. The impressive crux of Pagan Science, the sophomore album by Austin trio The Well, is that It's a multiplicity of itself. From the band's dual male/female vocals to their transcendently timeless sounds and erudite lyrical themes, Pagan Science is crystalline in its complexity and clarity at the same time. The Well walk an intriguing line between authentic early 70s doom/heavy psych and the more frayed-edge-of-sanity weirdness of their hometown's legendary noise rock scene, whilst also splicing in shades of chamber choir vocals, occult rock and dark folk. Sonically, Pagan Science picks up where The Well -- bassist/vocalist Lisa Alley, guitarist/vocalist Ian Graham and drummer Jason Sullivan -- left off with their widely heralded 2014 RidingEasy debut Samsara. Here, the band's heavy psych, proto-metal sound growing evermore vast, yet more focused on hooks, and their lyrics more conceptually intricate. Part of a running thread throughout the album's introspective lyrics is the notion that the world outside of one's own mind is also a creation and reflection of the interior world of that mind. And, just like the band's sound is one thing (undeniably heavy) and simultaneously another (dark folk, blues... there's even a Crosby, Stills & Nash cover, "Guinnevere"), it's this multiplicity that makes Pagan Science such a captivating record. Pagan Science was recorded with producer/engineer Chico Jones at Micro Mega Studio in 2016. Jones also previously engineered the band's debut album Samsara with producer Mark Deutrom [Melvins, Sunn0)))] in 2013. Samsara, released late September 2014 was ranked the #1 debut album of 2014 by The Obelisk and widely praised in the press. Likewise, the band's intense - some even say "possessed" - live performances have earned them featured slots at Austin's Levitation Fest in 2015 & 2016, as well as tours with Kadavar, All Them Witches, Black Tusk and more. Pagan Science is available on LP, CD and download as of October 14th, 2016 via RidingEasy Records.
