  • The abby mac: “Bilharzia” delves directly into surrealism!

    In spite of bouts of left field experimentation, the album Bilharzia by the New York one-man project, The abby mac, offers a string of good songs and smart ideas. The moodier songs that surface as the album unfolds ring truest and render the pep of the album’s more chipper...

    I’m old enough and jaded enough re: music that 99.9% of all new so called experimental artists on the scene over the last 10+ years have bored the ever-living stuffing out of me. Not so with GARCY420. He has put out a few singles and matching video arrangements that...
