Hey readers!  Sorry it’s been so long.  Summer’s been pretty crazy.  Anyway, as I mentioned on my facebook page, I’ve been hired by another Brandeis University newspaper, The Hoot.  My first article has been published by them so check it out.  It’s an editorial comparing Jay-Z’s ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ to Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus!’ http://thebrandeishoot.com/articles/13368 

Enjoy and keep reading!  

Here’s another article published in The Justice.  This one’s about a crazy letter to rapper Lil Wayne from an obsessed fan: http://www.thejustice.org/lil-wayne-letter-identifies-boundary-issues-1.2945416#.UJlCGmB1G34

Radio Time Updates

Posted: October 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

So for all that want to tune in to The Sound Hound Radio Show but can’t because of the hours, I’ve expanded my show to Mondays at 11:00 – 11:50 AM instead of just Thursdays at the same time.  Listen in and hit me up for requests on Facebook or Twitter (@soundhoundmusic) or call in at (781) – 736 – 5277.  Hope to see you all there!

Recently, murmurs, whispers and rumors of a new Green Day project were confirmed by the band. Fans were in for a real treat (and despisers were in for a huge headache) when the trio from California announced that they were not releasing one new album but three, “cleverly” entitled “Uno!,” “Dos!,” and “Tres!”

“Uno!’s” first single, “Oh Love,” lives up to the “power-punk” description Green Day gave the first piece of the trilogy, which is due out on September 25, 2012. The track rocks steadily with a punky riff that somewhat resmebles a slower “Rock’n Me” by the Steve Miller Band. The catchy chorus, guitar solo that replicates the melody, and relentless build up is reasonably successful, though “Oh Love” isn’t exactly the most memorable rock or even Green Day song ever released. It does, nonetheless, give hope for a simple rock record that doesn’t try to save the universe as the band’s previous records did.

In celebration of July 4th, 2012, America’s 236th birthday, The Sound Hound has compiled a playlist of what we consider the greatest and most classic American Rock songs of all time. These aren’t necessarily songs about the USA, though some of them are, but they are all favorite anthems by American bands.  These are the songs we at The Sound Hound think of when we think of American Rock bands.
