Electronic act THE RADIO BROADCAST consists of two members solely believing in nothing BUT the music! That said, they have some content released so far, with plans in mind for some touring and shows to commence soon enough. Check out the chatter of what was said from this duo below.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Hello we are The Radio Broadcast. We are a Live Electronic group. There are two of us in the group. Michael plays keys and loops/samples and Kristin sings and plays keys as well. We met in a tattoo shop in 2005 and started playing music together in 2008 and formed TRB in 2009. Michael grew up playing drums in punk bands and Kristin grew up playing the piano but at the time when the two met neither of them were involved in anything musically. We had both wanted to create our own punk band but realized after purchasing a guitar neither of us knew how to play nor had the time or patience to learn so we stuck with what we knew, drums and keys. Over the years our sound and style has changed along with the overall setup of the equipment we use. Our style is always evolving

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

When We started The Radio Broadcast in 2008/2009 MySpace was the biggest social media site.  Our Primary objective was to come up with a band name that wasn't already on MySpace. We had several names that we came up with that were not names on MySpace and that would have worked out but nothing stuck with us like The Radio Broadcast. Imagine you are flipping through your music lybrary  and you come across The Radio Broadcast. You tune in to listen and at that point We (The Radio Broadcast) become your radio and you are listening to our broadcast and thus The Radio Broadcast.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The Radio Broadcast is based out of Houston Texas in the United States. For us with our style the music scene is very difficult but it always has been for us. Over the Years we have struggled to get booked on decent shows because our sound was so unique promoters didn't know who to book us with or how to even book an electronic duo. We have struggled to find similar artists to play with as well but within the past couple years more and more electronic artists are slowly starting to emerge.  The Electronic Music Scene in Houston TX isn't the greatest and there really isn't much of a community for it. It is really strange because you see national electronic acts travel through and put on great shows for a large Houston based crowd but then you get booked on a local show and that crowd that was at the national show is nowhere to be seen at the local shows.

Houston has a really good indie scene that they tend to blend with some electronic influence. There is a really strong EDM and DJ culture in Houston that we were involved in for a couple years but realized that wasn't quite our fit. In Houston it is really about getting involved with the right people in order to get booked for certain events or booked at certain venues. Being an electronic artist in Houston can be discouraging and we have seen electronic artists come and go throughout our time. All in All we have played some really cool events in Houston and we are still trying to get on some of the bigger events the City has to offer but Houston is not a place with a well established electronic music scene even though you can see there are people out there that enjoy the music.

We have played with some amazing Houston talent and one of our Favorites is Rex Hudson. The sounds from rex are very Synthwave, Retrowave, Chillwave. We enjoy seeing him perform every time! Another Local favorite of ours is Ten Pixels Tall the head of Lazybit Collective. Lazybit Collective is a group of guys that create and play 8 Bit music. Love the sounds they produce.

4. How would you describe your style?

This is an excellent question and we can only describe what we want to project but in reality it is up to the listener to describe our style. We have always been stumped by this question because we do not feel we are one certain style. We perform a variety of electronic styles of music because we enjoy a variety of music. We have created tracks that are  more synthwave or synthpop sounding and we have created tracks that are more wichhouse, trap, and dub influenced. We do not create with one sound or one style in mind we create by what we feel and not all creations are intended to be released on an album. With electronic music it is very easy to find a groove and a sound that works and just stick with it. We do not work like that. We do not want all of or music to sound the same. We try to stay fresh and current and we are continuously evolving and experimenting with new sounds and ideas. So for us to label our selves as one particular style is quite difficult for us.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We have released several EP's over the years but currently we only have two that are available as we feel that the music we have out now is what defines us. We have an EP titled "TRB" from 2016 with some really groovy Indie Electronic tracks and some really dancy Synthpop tracks. We just released an EP at the beginning of the year titled "ARRIVED" and on this release we have a nice variety of sounds. Arrived starts off with a strong dramatic intro that evolves into some aggressive dance rhythms and ends with a calming dub track.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We currently have a nice handful of New material that we have been working with over the past couple months and we are super excited to release but we have always been creating music on the go so with the next group tracks we would like to spend a little bit more time with them and work with some different effects and techniques for vocal manipulation and just do a little bit more sound exploration before coming up with a final product.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

As of now we have about one show a month in the Houston area. At the moment we have vehicle issues so we aren't doing much traveling but we look to start playing out of Houston in the near future and we are planning a tour for later this year.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Right now we are working on building our online presence. We are also working on some video and photo editing along with the new musical material. A lot of background prep work for the future but the future is unpredictable. You can plan now for what you think is to come or what you think shall happen but you never truly know what to expect until you are in the moment. But as for the future we have many thoughts as to what we would like to happen but nothing solid as of now. We do have a tour planned for the future but we don't have dates yet.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can go to TRBmusic.com for everything The Radio Broadcast. On our site we have music, videos, merch, dates, and social media links. You can find our music on all streaming sites but some sites are slowly processing our material. For sure on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, BandCamp, SoundCloud, and Reverbnation.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Whether you Love it or Hate it remember the time and dedication that was put into this music that you are now listening to. We are all on our own path and what may be fuel for one may not be fuel for the next. Take a step back from your life and try to view the world from a different perspective. We do our best to produce quality material but in the end quality is defined by you. Your thoughts and feelings towards our music is on you but please remember what we have created was from the love of our souls with positive intent to help connect like minded individuals.


Rock band CHOUT have an all new single out "Seasons" that comes off their upcoming new album "Dogwater". This Alice In Chains influential band is said to take off, just as Alice In Chains had done back in the 90's grunge era of the past but the here and now is happening! Find out more about the single and album from this band called Chout!


1. You're source of style brings back the grunge, rock, style of the 90's sounding much like Alice In Chains' styling. Have you gotten fed up with being compared to them or was that the point for Chout?

I wouldn’t say we are fed up with the comparisons. The point of Chout isn’t to be a sound alike band, we’re aiming for a more original sound that will slowly shine through the more we write. I (Brendan) learned to sing and perform by listening and watching Alice videos from the 90's so at this point my vocal tone and writing style are naturally very similar to Layne’s despite my favorite bands and influences being all over the spectrum.

2. Why go with such a name like Chout? Does it have a meaning by itself or just a randomize name in the sake of being as such?

The band name Chout doesn’t really mean anything. We wanted something simple that was easy to say. We named the band with the "Dogwater" album cover in mind because the record sounded really beefy to us and we thought the name was fitting. Also the name sort of resembles the city we’re from Chicago.

3. When being compared to Alice In Chains, do you find that with every time of hearing such a thing, you find it an honor or just go with the flow of "Alright hearing this again".

Well as we don’t want be characterized as a Greta Van Fleet type sound alike band, It definitely gives us a sense of honor when die hard Alice fans enjoy the record and express excitement for our future.

4. So tell me about your new single made video called "Seasons"?

The Seasons music video was written and directed by our good friend Alec Bourke (he’s done all of our videos and album art as well) the song is about an internal battle with mental illness, the chorus line "Seasons cry for no one" is an ironical reference to Seasonal Depression. The script he wrote for the video features a woman waking up in the woods with a creepy porcelain doll which is a physical representation of the depression or mental illness. By the end of the video the woman ends up smashing the doll when the song goes into the sped up heavy solo section, symbolizing a triumph over one’s own mind.

5. This track comes off your upcoming release "Dogwater", which is what an album or an EP?

Despite being only 8 tracks "Dogwater" is our first full length album.

6. Will there be anymore songs off this "Dogwater", release that we should be aware about?

No "Dogwater" was initially released as a finished product.

7. What about playing shows and going out on tour, have anything like that set in stone?

For now we are playing local shows in the Chicago Land area but it’s looking like we may be on the road playing some of the summer rock festivals of 2019. Nothing is set in stone yet. We will post updates on our social media as things are finalized.

8. Have anything else planned out or that you would like to express?

Right now we are just writing, practicing, and working on developing a more original sound that doesn’t delve too far from our first record. Also in the works of getting on the road to tour before the year ends.


Alternative indie rockers GOOD TIMES & COMPANY have been hard at work upon their all new album titled "Cosmonaut", expected this spring time! But before that happens, they do have other releases of content, that is widely available and superb in quality and sound! Discover what the band had to say about everything below!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

I (Clint Kesinger-Vocals/Guitar) started an acoustic project called "Good Times" in 2013 after several years of extensive gigging and touring in America’s heavy metal scene. After 2 EP's and some touring as a solo act, I decided to take it up and notch and added long time friend Shad Baldes on bass and mutual friend Kyle Wells on drums. After 2 EP's under the name "Good Times & Company", we added Keagan Cross on guitar as the final member. We released "Midwest Sun" in May of 2018 as a four piece, went on tour and continued with the momentum we had been sustaining since we began. Now we are the verge of releasing a brand-new album with an entirely new and unique sound. The new album is called "Cosmonaut".

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Essentially its just a play off my original solo project "Good Times". We added members, so it changed to "Good Times & Company". Which is a descriptor of what you can expect at one of our shows!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based out of Springfield, IL. The scene has had a recent resurgence and its very inspiring to see. Lots of talented original rock bands are coming together here. Springfield has a history of producing some solid bands that make waves. We have some awesome festivals every summer and the whole city is into it and super supportive. There are also some great new live venues that are beginning to host national touring packages, which is always a good thing! Local bands I’d recommend would be The Dixie Narcos, Feel, Wayward Motel, and solo act Devin Williams. All worth a listen!

4. How would you describe your style?

Alternative Indie Rock. Certainly, our sound is unique to us and we thrive on that. Its catchy but dark, honest and driving. Precisely crafted, loosely delivered. You’ll have to listen and decide for yourself!

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

"Different Things" – 2016
"All American Grinder"- 2017
"Midwest Sun"- 2018

Listening to these 23 songs start to finish honestly depicts our journey. You can clearly see how we have changed and adapted our song writing to get where we are now. Expect an interesting, catchy soundscape that can sweep you away. Difficult to compare to any other band and laced with abstract lyricism and dark themes, all the while leaving catchy melodies in your head for safe keeping.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

YES! We finished tracking our new album "Cosmonaut" in January and expect to be releasing some fun new stuff early spring 2019! This new album is our greatest, most well put together effort to date. You’re gonna want to hear this!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We actually are in the process of finding a new suitable drummer. Our drummer, Kyle, stepped down for mutual reasons and as such we don’t have much booked for touring yet. However, we have some very talented candidates and we are planning on playing some lovely big festivals this summer, so an exciting summer lay head!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Adding a new drummer and continue putting out our brand of rock music. We have achieved the goal of making something sound unique to us, now we will be pushing that sound all over the world online and putting on electrifying live shows. We will return to the stage as a new experience, complete with visuals and new sounds! We would also LOVE to go visit our fans in the UK and Australia! We have had countless fans reach out asking us to come play, so that’s a goal of ours in the future as well!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Our music is on all major platforms! Check any of these links or just google "Good Times & Company":

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Will: We couldn’t think of anything decent so our friend Nik Panic came up with it.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there?

Will: We’re in North London. There’s a load of good venues still around if you look for them. Probably more than ever if you move slightly away from the West End.

Are there any local bands you could recommend?

4. How would you describe your style?

Shaheena: Darkly melodic with a hint of violence.

Two albums and this EP and lots of videos...Interesting lyrics, good tunes and rockin’ riffs.

Shaheena: Play it loud.


Mix-up rockers SHOUT AT THE ROBOTS got into details about their latest content, themselves, and the music they make and how it comes full circle with each release seen through. Find out all of the chatter below.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band as it is now has been together since 2015, but we've all known each other since we were little kids. Obviously this means we all have a twisted weird bond and are like brothers in all the best and worst ways.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

People don't actually ask this that often for some reason which is great because it's the kind of name we can say “it means whatever you think it means” which is the worst kind of cop out answer. It could be some kind of commentary on the digitization of humanity but we're Netflix binging smart-phone havers just like you. So it means whatever you want it to mean.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We're based in the Southern Tier of upstate New York, between Binghamton and Owego. There is a really cool little punk/alternative/whatever scene in Binghamton that we've been thankfully semi-adopted into. You and your readers should definitely check out; (deep breath) Talk Hard, Cold Sweats, Walking Distance, If Madrid, Archemist, Floodlands, Yard Party, 2nd Suitor, Underground River, Tom Jolu, Ry, Natural Born Kissers. Tons more worth exploring as well.

4. How would you describe your style?

We have a lot in common with bands like The Replacements or Husker Du, Fugazi etc. People have compared us to all kinds of groups. We're kind of a heavy post-punk band with all kinds of little twists thrown in.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We self-released an album in December of 2017 called Fail Better which is available for whatever you feel like paying on Bandcamp as well as pretty much anywhere else online. I think in the future people can expect that we'll never put out the same thing twice or get boring, hopefully.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Absolutely. We hope to have the first of a few EP's out some time in March.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Ideally we would be playing 100+ shows a year but we're waaaaaay below that mark right now. We're still in the very early stages of planning our first tour. But the plan is to keep working at it and chipping away and pretending we know what we're doing as long as we can.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Clearly I should have read ahead before answering that last one. But really our plan is to just absorb as much as we can, much like the Blob, and grow bigger and bigger and take over the world.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to everything we've done so far at shoutattherobots.bandcamp.com which also has a link to our merch! We're pretty DIY but we also gotta make a little cash here and there, you know?

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

No one can really tell you what to do. Try not to be a jerk. We can all live like life is okay through music and it's alright to be weird and confused, no matter how old you are or where in life you are. Eat more tacos. We love you.
