With a triumphant and uplifting piano, Hometown by Dru Cutler is a soft rock song smothered in nostalgia. With harmonies that remind me of the Plain White T’s, this band is an easy listening, all-American band that brings back fond memories of high school ‘jams’ at lunchtime… Continue reading

A woman types frantically on a tinfoil-covered laptop as her apparent space ship is hurtling through the stars.

The music is really quite unique; every individual sound effect is made from scratch, and never repeated… Continue reading
