What I have to Give, Let It Be Enough

Blue Duck Records

You need to listen to this album. The diversity is amazing. From power pop to etherial meandering drones, After the Sirens have created an uncategorizable masterpiece.

Tighten the Noose

Mt. Fuji Records

Heartbreakingly sincere. Lyricist/vocalist Landon Hedges sounds like he’s 12, but writes like he’s 52 and been through the ringer. Lyrically wonderful and musically decent.

Land of Sea

No label

This is a folky hipster’s delight. Soft, light and perfect for the coffeehouse.

Pop Manifesto

Scruffsville Records

Stephen Burns has rocked the Scruffs name and made it his own for the past 30 years. This is the one album that makes you wish he would hang it up.

Starring; Someone Like You

Eyeball Records

This is the type of music that Bjork’s children will eventually make. Strange, etherial, and brilliant.

Vs. The Hornet

HEYOU! Records

This is an assult on the eardrums that harkens back to the 70’s punk scene. Unadulterated in-your-face f— it-all punk rock.

I Finally Know What’s Good For Me

No label

It’s like they took the keyboard theme from Taxi and meshed 90’s alternative rock to it. It’s not bad, but unremarkable.
