It's Not Over is the sixth album by the group Shooting Star. This is the first Shooting Star album not to feature founding members Gary West, Steve Thomas, and Charles Waltz; and the first to feature their replacements: vocalist Keith Mitchell, keyboardist Dennis Laffoon, and drummer Rod Lincoln. It is also the first Shooting Star album to feature original bassist Ron Verlin since 1983's Burning.
After the elegant, introspective romantic narratives of And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out and the beautifully crafted but restrained pop textures of Summer Sun, it was hard not to wonder if Yo La Tengo was ever going to turn up the amps and let Ira Kaplan go nuts on guitar again. For more than a few fans "Pass the Hatchet, I Think I'm Goodkind," the opening cut from YLT's 2006 album I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass, will feel like the reassuring sound of a homecoming – ten minutes of noisy six-string freak-out, with James McNew's thick, malleable basslines and Georgia Hubley's simple but subtly funky drumming providing a rock-solid framework for Kaplan's enthusiastic fret abuse.
Vancouver metal veterans BISON are making a devastating return with their brand new album titled „You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient“; already a serious contender for the „album title of the year“ award. After 2012’s Lovelessness, the four-piece’s last album for Metal Blade Records, the band was joined by Shane Clark on bass, former lead guitarist of 3 INCHES OF BLOOD. The EP „1000 Needles“, released in 2014, already hinted at what to expect from their 5th full length album: a thundering opus of epic filth and splendor.
