Them Moose Rush to release new studio album “Don’t Pick Your Noise” on March 9th 2018

Hailing from the city of Bjelovar in Croatia, Them Moose Rush are a progressive rock band unlike any other. Working in a genre often fuelled by pomp and circumstance the Eastern European trio have always done things for themselves, and in doing so, done it all inimitably. From directing their own music videos to producing their own photographs, the band even has a...

Major Parkinson - Blackbox

This Norwegian band with the “strange” name, which also plays kinda “weird” music, is back with their new, fourth, studio album, three years after their previous one “Twilight Cinema”.

As the press release says, “The Stone House” was released first but was actually recorded second during a marathon six-day...
