The Ramonas “First World Problems”

January 8, 2018 // 0 Comments

We wanted to start 2018 with a ferocious bang here at The GATRS, so we are beginning our year with The Ramonas and their follow up album to 2016’s EP You Asked For It. The Ramonas are Lisa Lathwell (vox), Maxine Cahill (Guitar), Victoria Smith (bass), and Camille Phillips (drums). The band [Read More...]

Album Review: Cigarettes After Sex

June 8, 2017 // 0 Comments

I had kind of already made up my mind that I would like this album after I heard the single Each Time You Fall In Love when I reviewed it a while back, so it didn’t come to much of a surprise, when I actually received the advance copy that, yes, I did actually love it. Androgynous. That is [Read More...]

The Franklys, ‘Are You Listening?’

May 31, 2017 // 0 Comments

Occasionally, (or often) you may find yourself in an angry, ardent, or perhaps just wiry mood and yearn for something loud. In a similar fashion, I came across The Franklys and was fortunate to give the band’s forthcoming LP, Are You Listening? a proper listen—and yes, I’m a fan.  What [Read More...]

Album Review: The Moonlandingz “Interplanetary Class Classics”

March 23, 2017 // 0 Comments

The Moonlandingz are a band from Sheffield, UK and they are a band that leaves you wanting to dance and bob your head. They are releasing their debut album, Interplanetary Class Classics on 24th of March 2017. The album starts off with commanding drums and out-of-this-word synthesizers which is the [Read More...]

SKATERS “Rock and Roll Bye Bye”

March 23, 2017 // 0 Comments

First and foremost, we have to say, SKATERS… We have missed you. SKATERS have always been a follow your own rules (or no rules) kind of band. After parting ways with Warner Bros Records they had an emancipation and rebirth to set things on their own terms which is what they did when they [Read More...]

Devendra Banhart “Ape in Pink Marble,” Stream Album

September 29, 2016 // 0 Comments

Ape in Pink Marble sounds like it can be the perfect name for a work of art, which is why it seems only fitting that Devendra Banhart picked it for his ninth album. Banhart once again teamed up with his Mala collaborators, Noah Georgeson and Josiah Steinbrick. AIPM is reminiscent of Mala’s [Read More...]

Twin Atlantic’s New Album, GLA

September 25, 2016 // 2 Comments

Scottish rock band Twin Atlantic just dropped their fourth album, GLA.  From the moment you hit play, this album grabs hold of you and doesn’t let go.  The opening track, “Gold Elephant: Cherry Alligator,” hits the ground running with its heavy rock sound and lead vocalist Sam McTrusty’s [Read More...]

Biffy Clyro’s On A Bang – Ellipsis Drops on July 8th

July 6, 2016 // 3 Comments

On September 11, 2010, my friend and I were in front of a sound booth at Wembley Stadium in London bemoaning the fact that we had one more band to sit through before MUSE took the stage.  The opening bands for both nights up to that point had been rather lackluster and the only thing standing [Read More...]

Album Review: Drowners “On Desire”

June 24, 2016 // 3 Comments

To say I’ve been anticipating a sophomore album from Drowners is probably the understatement of the century. I’ve been restless since Cruel Ways was released in early March and the anticipation has been building tenfold since hearing almost all of the other album tracks during our week at SXSW. [Read More...]

The Kills “Ash & Ice”

June 6, 2016 // 1 Comment

When a car door closed on Jamie Hince’s hand in 2013, it seemed like a possible career ending moment… However through a series of six operations, and losing his dexterity, Hince would not only write music in between surgeries but he also had to re-teach himself how to play guitar. [Read More...]
