"Pop-rock with good guitar, from New Brunswick, New Jersey. 'Sugarcoat It' has a good hook and infectious enthusiasm, while 'Comfortably' is more somber, but with harder riffing in the breaks. 'Titanic' is quite different, beginning with bass-thrumming, hand-clapping staccato recitals and bursting into guitar chords... Arty dS is a hard act to follow... I can recommend him to pop-rock fans.” - The Godfather


This month’s final album comes from Hartwell – The Whole Damn Thing. This five-track EP showcases a solid blend of rock and pop with that distinctive “college radio” indie feel. The New Jersey-based band is quirky and upbeat with a lyrical style. A great short listen!

"There’s no reason why [the song] 'Total Request' -- a tongue in cheek mash note to pop Uber-Star, Britney Spears -- couldn’t be a huge novelty hit... Musically, it’s got the Emo Pop-Punk appeal of Jimmy Eat World, the high energy level of Green Day, and a dose of Fishbone/Chili Peppers funk from the rhythm section, so it had my attention from start to finish" - Gail Worley
