By: Ben Saunders After being in a band for about a year or so, shows go from the highlight of your week to another notch on the bedpost. The same venues, faces and the rush that never leaves but instead sinks deeper, only to be felt when the moments right. Amid the countless bands that get … Continue reading [Artist Feature] The Nixon Tapes
By: Ian Maikisch This Saturday, July 15, will be the last show Endless Pools plays. The local psychedelic-surf-rock band has been around for years, playing locally and regionally. After the release of the band's debut EP ,"Make Waves", earlier this year in January this comes as quite a shock. Which is exactly why … Continue reading Q&A: Endless Pools Talks Break Up, Band History and Accomplishments
STRFKR is from Portland, and much like Portland they are weird as hell. This 4-piece doles out intoxicatingly danceable indie-electronica and a performance stolen out of a psychedelic wet dream. Along with hundreds more I made my way through the hell-heat of Floridian summer to The Beacham, ever so happy for a night of bright colors, blissful music, and whatever weirdness waited.

I had the … Continue reading [New Album] Florence & Normandie Releases “Et. Alia”
By: Lindsy Carrasquillo I first discovered Pathos, Pathos around the start of the year when a friend of mine handed me a copy of their last EP, Pet Names. I quickly found out that the three piece band from Orlando has a clever way of making upbeat happy sounding songs about somber subjects. Their new … Continue reading [NEW SINGLE] Pathos, Pathos: Covered In Moonlight

By: Kevin Renard https://soundcloud.com/whelmedrecords/woolbright-whats-it-gonna-be/s-pAFzZ I can’t say I know all that much about Woolbright. I know they’re coming out with a record in August. I know I’m slated to see them already later that month around when classes start back up from me. Now I know they’re from Davie which is cool and a … Continue reading [NEW SINGLE] Woolbright: What’s It Going To Be
By: Lindsy Carrasquillo https://open.spotify.com/album/6rjj0Z95E2YJyUEtOdrmNn Every good summer calls for long night drives on nearly empty highways with the windows down and the stereo blaring. Cruising through a pitch black sky and belting out the words to your favorite song. The trick is creating the perfect playlist and the Delta Troubador’s new single, Stone Thrasher, was … Continue reading [NEW SINGLE] The Delta Troubadours: Stone Thrasher
By: Graham Johnson When we received news of the Whelmed Records Friends and Fam Summer Jam compilation for 2017, I was mad stoked considering that Alumine just recently released their new Self-Titled album through the same label. My excitement was quickly elevated when I learned that both Florida natives, Woolbright and Winded, were going … Continue reading Whelmed Records’ Emotionally Overwhelming Friends And Fam Summer Jam ’17 Compilation
