NEEDTOBREATHE has been churning out music regularly since 2006, when their first major label release, Daylight, hit the market. In 2018, they are now six full-length albums and various EPís into their career with a great track record of high quality with each new release. With the 2016 album H A R D L O V E, the band leaned into modern synthesizers, mixing them with the southern rock/alternative sound they have made their career on. It was a needed artistic step, but it left some longtime fans frustrated. It took this reviewer time to warm to it, but H A R D L O V E eventually won me over with some of the tightest songs they had written up to that point. That brings us to the Forever On Your Side (Niles City Sound Sessions) EP, which continues sonically along the path started by H A R D L O V E and the Hard Cuts EP from last year. If youíre looking for more of the roaring rock of The Reckoning and The Outsiders, then these four songs may leave you wanting. However, if this newer sound works for you, there are some nice introspective moments to enjoy...

In 2009, acclaimed indie film director Wes Anderson translated his quirky, stylized filmmaking to the world of stop motion animation. Fantastic Mr. Fox lived up to its name and easily became my favorite in Anderson's catalog of movies. The filmmaker's style is often defined by centering everything in a given frame, symmetrical imagery, and slow--and sometimes awkward--character movements. All of his movies have a bit of a surreal feel to them, with his style being quite an acquired taste. But with all of its oddities, Fantastic Mr. Fox may be the filmmaker's most accessible film of his career, and while his newest film--and second stop-motion venture--Isle of Dogs, may not overthrow Fox in that regard, it's amazingly artful, moving, and entertaining piece of animation.
Isle of Dogs is pure Wes Anderson from start to finish. The film is even preceded by a tongue-in-cheek note to the viewer that the Japanese characters would speak in their native tongue, only to...

Over the course of the last two years and four projects, the members of the Melbourne, Australia-based worship collective, Planetshakers, have been parsing out their music to their fans via a series of live EPs. While this is certainly a valid way to bring the tunes to the masses, particularly here in the post-CD era, the quartet of releases in question were plagued by inconsistency, serving up can't-miss best-skipped cuts in roughly equal measure. Not so with the second installment of the Heaven on Earth effort. Like its forebear, the latest effort offers up four tracks recorded in the live setting. However, unlike Part One, the new offering bolts nimbly out of the starting gate and runs its course from start to finish with nary a miscue along the way.
The bracing leadoff number, "Move Out of My Way," finds the band in absolute peak form, riding an irresistible funk-filled groove that takes the basic classic R&B building blocks favored by everyone from ...
