icepicks for september - stone and moxie and the influence

first up -  STONE formed in 2010, this band out of philadelphia is certainly one to keep an eye on. Somewhere along the line a song has a way of getting personal. New song, new band, but out of the blue it’s 1970-something and it just got real. When listening to STONEs song “you made a promise” it just felt like a brand new yesterday. A touch raw, very emotional, you know. Personal. Certainly looking forward to more from these guys and guys, if you have a facebook page let me know! not found one anywhere but that's ok - you can check them out here - STONE .   Vocals, Guitar / Johnny ...

icepicks - Grimm Jack, Random Dogs & Rainchild

Grimm Jack out of New York has been on Renegade off and on over the years. If you’ve heard the London Quire boys or Englands The Answser, you’ve got an idea of this simple sound with a melodic edge focused on roughing it up some around the vocals. They came back to us via Reverb Nations promotions we’re now running and of course, we’ll see what they’ve got new and keep some Grimm Jack in the stream at all times. Kinda mandatory Grimm Jack, you see. Check ‘em out!
There’s a lot of things that come to mind when I think of Israel. Most of them political...

icepicks for july

icepicks for july
from reviews to simply playing these guys week in and week out (and still never getting tired of ANYTHING to this point), shamans harvest  has gone from someone who got my attention, like many bands, a few years ago but in their release running around the internet now, Smokin Hearts & Broken Guns, they're certainly taking their game to the next level. if you want to hear more, they're easy enough to find on the web, but every thurs i'm almost bound to play something from their intro hit "dragonfly" to their cover "dirty diana" but for now, you'll get to jam out to some In Chains. http...

let's go ahead and get the local out of the way real quick in that yes, i'm coming back to dallas for back to back picks. dark avenue has been in the dallas scene for quite some time, and yes, still alive and well musically as well as on the stage. i've caught these guys at curtain club cd release parties, austin sxsw and most recently at gas monkey bar and grill and each and every time the power is there and the good times roll. and fresh off the press- dark avenue - maybe tomorrow.   i ran into heaven below years ago while surfing and found their hit "when daylight dies" and have spoken...

adakain going for the home team here and giving a shout out to adakain. current lineup going back to 2012 when singer Ryan Ray took over to join drummer Ryan Caroll, last remaining original member of the band and pulling in others from the local scene in corey goodwin on guitar and anthony morel on bass. the sound is driving, combining sheer sound with melodic tendencies at times to bring something just a little different to the scene. check out the video for hey girl and check out the bands site at adakain.com . and lets face it - any band that can open up for apocalyptica has something going...

icepicks - volume 1

icepicks - volume 1
if you've stuck with us for awhile, you know i used to do icepicks with Jeff Duran on FM Los Angeles. it gave me a hell of an opportunity to get bands heard in a major market and we even had Dallas vs LA where we went head to head with LA bands and won. that came and went and while still a good idea, no real place to set it free right now, so i'll steal my name back and put it on a different segment where i just pick 5 bands to show off as i think they've got a world of talent and need to be seen. kinda our entire point of being here, ya know? in this case i'll show off some new bands and brin...
