Ep. 9 (4-25-17) new format!! Still the same great show!!

www.halshack.com

Brand new streamlined edition of the Halshack Rockcast!! Shows gotten too long so were trimming it down to get you "in and out" in just about an hour. Come on folks you've got an hour to spare right while your cleaning house, driving the car, working at your computer or working out at the gym.

Give us a download and you will discover that the Halshack is not playing around when he says "only the best indie rock, pop, and alt"

Halshack's bands and artists come with a long list of accomplishments from opening for National acts on worldwide tours, radio play on FM stations in various cities, TV interviews and numerous radio gigs. Fans ranging from 5,000 to 300,000 so these are no small potatoes bands and artists. They have proven track records to succeed in the ever growing music factory and some have potential to break out as world wide stars. Thats correct folks everyone of these fabulous artists are unsigned with no major label backing. (not that they are not worthy) We just havn't found the right deal yet or made the right contact or they simply want no label involvement and want to pursue their own path.

So we're doing it on our own Indie style!! Maybe one day with the right backing we can form our own major indie label without all the red tape and blurred lines. Until then we're plugging good music and Grade A talent till the cows come home and the pigs fly!! Wahooo!!!

So how about giving us a listen or download, you may even discover your new favorite band and want to help support their efforts.

Thanks for rockin the Halshack and getting us to over 100,000 total plays across all channels.

Roger Jaeger (Nashville, TN)....Elevator

Solid new song here from rising talent Roger Jaeger. I first stumbled across Roger on Reverbnation and was immediately hooked to his song "Start Over" for its very unique use of the Indian instrument known as the "Sitar" which is featured on my brand new Episode 9 during the "Blues Grooves" segment a.k.a. "Americana"

We shared Roger's backstory of living in India for many years and the history of the song on the show so please go and listen if you haven't yet. Download it and take it with you walking, in the car, at the gym or wherever you enjoy your favorite tunes. (Im best on a car ride on a good stereo..the bands recordings are top-notch...not one bad one in the group..all very professional)

Hope you enjoy Roger and the rest of the artists here at our channel. We got over 20 more songs posted for people to listen to all great fantastic acts just like Roger. So please help spread the word about the Halshack Indie Rockcast!!

Best home for new indie music, future hits, and rising stars!!

Be sure to chaeck out our review page from our staff of ex-record label scouts and master bloggers!

The Red Harbour (Yucaipa, CA)...Run Away
Clean

These guys burst onto the scene, with their distinct dark-indie alternative edge, a couple years ago blazing a trail on their way to regional fame. Their Twitter account boasts 15k followers and growing as well as the bands presence around California.

The band has currently been in the studio dreaming up new tunes to serenade their fans and hopefully gain new ones too. Lets see if we can't get them a few more while we wait for their new tracks to take form and board the showboat that is "The Red Harbour"

A little history about this group...when I discovered them they were still working on this track "Run Away", they sent me a rough demo which I then used my super-duty technical skills..lol... and put my wits to their recording and gave it a nice playable sound. That was on episode 5...they were so young too when they cut this song...ages 15 up to 20....very mature song and sound for such a young band.

They have also released a second song "Ocean' which is great as well and was also featured on a past episode of my show.

Well this version here is the all "new and improved" studio cut and way better than the rough demo we had done just to get the song out there to the masses. See what you think...I know I'm ready to dock my boat and sit a spell at the Red Harbour...maybe you will join me!!

Civilized Tears (Nashville, TN)...Blue Sunrise

The band and the singer in this group are quite brilliant. The different levels in this song are very complex, it shows a fanatical skill for writing and song arrangement. The vocalist is British and it works very well in his favor. He has a fantastic range and with Civilized Tears, they have played numerous concerts an even opened for National acts. Radio play and distribution across major outlets.

There's not enough good comments I can make about this song, the group, and the man behind the band Timothy Bennet-Smith. Ive had the pleasure of promoting and getting to know this act over the last couple of years. Tim has been busy helping his wife Bambi ,who is also the band's bass player, raise their 3 children. We will hopefully see this band get back into the "groove" of things as their children grow and time will allow Civilized Tears to be reborn. Until then, help them keep the dream alive and we will be waiting for their clandestine return to the music-sphere.

I feel this song represents the very best of the bands playlist but also the rest of their songs are very good too. Will be featuring some more of this band in future episodes of my show.

Be sure to find everything halshack at these links. listen to an epidose, play some songs, hit the download buttons, get the app on Google and Itunes, give us likes and comments and plylist adds. All these things help keep us up in rank on the charts.

Excellent mainstream pop/rock sound from this up and coming vying act from Tennessee. Really good "radio ready" band that has shared the stage with several touring bands including American Idol winner Danny Gokey.

Tribal Theory (San Diego, Ca)....Burnin'

Tribal Theory has been burning up the eardrums of fans and the radio waves all over SoCal and beyond. Numerous radio and TV appearances to support their ever expanding follower base have contributed to their rise in indie notoriety. Enough so that they caught the attention Of the infamous California based reggae band "The Expendables"!

Currently they are on a tour with "The Expendables" playing dates all over the US and even a show in the Netherlands???...What??? Who knew they loved reggae in the land of the Dutch....lol

Great to have these guys on board as they are also the "MYSTERY SPOTLIGHT" for ep. 9. This track "Burnin" has been tearing up the reggae charts on Reverbnation and has garnered them many featured spots on the website and also the title for #1 band in San Diego. its been featured on my show as well on Ep.8 in the "Funk Trunk" segment.

Thanks for checking out Tribal Theory and our show as well as all the songs posted here at Podomatic.
