The Hiders: Temenos

Temenos is the 4th full-length release from The Hiders
thehiders.com

If it is true that you can be judged by the company you keep, then The Hiders’ Billy Alletzhauser is in a great place.

Much like fellow Ass Pony Chuck Cleaver, Alletzhauser has found a second family in The Hiders, and Temenos, the 4th full-length release from the group showcases amazing talent and depth.

Electric Citizen

Electric Citizen: Ross Dolan (guitar), Laura Dolan (vox), Nick Vogelpohl (bass) and Nate Wagner (drums)
electriccitizenband.com

As autumn approaches, most of us are put in the mindset of witches, ghosts and creepy characters.  It is appropriate then that I present the self-titled EP by Electric Citizen.
