Sidewave: Big Time

Big Time cover art
Big Time is the latest EP from San Francisco space rock band Sidewave, the brainchild of Phil Golyshko.  The seven tracks tower above the musical landscape, with cliffs of heavy guitars, swirling with anthemic vocals. With influences ranging from Smashing Pumpkins to Muse, the music has a theatrical flair, touches of metal and a fair amount of pretense. This is an album that goes straight for a stadium rock aesthetic and for better or worse, takes itself very seriously.  Stream and buy Big Time at the link below.
