Moose Gronholm's Profile

Moose Gronholm

Moose is originally from Chicago. The river's howl and the string band music brought him here via steel horse known as a Ford Taurus in 2011. He found the pen and word before he could play a note on a guitar. He experiences life and writes about it. See the country and of its wondrous places. Those are his two mottos. He loves Whitman, Thoreau, Emerson, and Kerouac, Shakespeare, Dr. Seuss, Alcott, and Atwood. That's Moose, a simple dude who loves music and writing, and his family.

EP REVIEW: The Eternal Now

The ep kicks off with a song called “Tomorrow” and is a great introduction into what these guys do. This has everything that, for me, I enjoy about metal. Jim just absolutely crushes the guitar parts. Steve has a way of wrapping his vocal around the guitar. When Jim goes high so can Steve, if they go low so does Steve.

REVIEW: The Great Beyond by Night Owl

A person’s interpretation of a song’s lyrics is, and can be, unique to them. Being that I’m not the one who wrote the song either I come from feel. Lyrically I dig this song. It seemingly comes from a place of some darkness, and I appreciate that.

REVIEW: “Big Booty Judy” by The M.F.B.

The band is The M.F.B. and to quote their YouTube page “there’s a reason why we’re called THE M.F.B. After one night with us you’ll realize why.” Well, I haven’t spent the night with them, yet, but I did spend the weekend with their latest music video called “Big Booty Judy.”

VIDEO REVIEW: Massing - "Daisies"

The song is from their 2021 EP Nothing’ to Fear. I like to think of this song as a love letter. It just asks the questions “if you were to die what would you / I do?” All the while using death as a metaphor for the “stupid things I say” inside of a relationship.

ALBUM REVIEW: The Ivory in the Narrows - Matt Baumann

What has always struck me about Matt are his lyrics. The poetry in their feeling, their simplicity and complexity, and his lyrics all draw me in like a deer in the headlights. Then everything gets put down and shut off and the listening commences.

EP REVIEW: Nothin’ to Fear - Massing

Delving into the lyrics I was finding depth to the lyricism. The songs go through waves of relationships and living life. Getting older, and being sometimes sarcastic, and honest.

Track after track with this record had me locked in. Throughout the whole album the electric guitars were blazing, the drums crashing, and the bass laying it down nice and smooth.
