Perhaps our most musically diverse Choice 5 to date, Modern Rock Review’s December feature includes music by Bleeder, FOAM, Nothing More, Richard Schroder and Six String Noise.
Drive by Richard Schroder
Nashville’s Richard Schroder delivers top end country/rock through excellent sound and production on his album Drive. Highlights here include the classic sounding “Nashville Girl” and the slight electro-pop of “One In the Same”.

The Stories We Tell Ourselves by Nothing More
Hailing from San Antonio, Texas, Nothing More delivers aggressive hard rock on their well performed and produced album, The Stories We Tell Ourselves. Leading the way is the scorching rocker “Let Em Burn” along with the spastic, electronic tinged “Funny Little Creatures”.

Cold Damn Season by Six String Noise
Six String Noise is from Athens, Greece and they perform a rock blend with an ‘Alice in Chains’ quality on top of strong hard metal rhythms. Some strong points from the album Cold Damn Season include the soaring “Things Went South” and the acoustic track “Broken Homes”.

Coping Mechanisms by FOAM
FOAM is an alternative rock trio from Perth, Australia. On Coping Mechanisms, the group performs an extreme yet catchy grunge with heavy use of bass riffs and a bit of ‘Lou Reed’ delivery in compositions.
Bleeder by Bleeder
Virginia-based Bleeder is a project by author and musician Shelby Smoak, who penned a novel of the same name. The self-titled debut album continues the cathartic themes of the novel with an art-rock aesthetic.
