Review: Boardwalk – Boardwalk

Mike Edge and Amber Quintero are relatively new besties. After only being introduced at a party in summer 2012, a whirlwind of musical chemistry exploded and Boardwalk was born.

Introducing: Wampire

The latest signings to Illinois indie mainstay Polyvinyl Records, Oregon two-piece Wampire produce retro-centric, organ-laden psych rock.
