The Aimless Never Miss - "SOB" Releasing what they've named a "trans-genre" album, The Aimless Never Miss introduce their first self-released full length, The High Dive to Lo-Fi, Volume 1. The album's witty name and its audible diversity work hand-in-hand as quite the entertaining contradiction. About the The High Dive, which is for sale on the band's website: It's taken over 2 years to produce, and is by far our most 'experimental' album to date. The 13 tracks range from rock to folk, Americana, punk, gypsy-jazz, and into the indescribable...If you like music that can't easily be defined, and are [...]

After meeting Jonny Latimer of both the Aimless Never Miss and Built for the Sea at the Bottom of the Hill, I'd been looking forward to this show all week. First off, it was at Cafe du Nord, which happens to be one of my favorite venues in the city. It feels like it belongs in the television show True Blood alongside the vampire bar Fangtasia. Antique couches line the rear of the club and a deep scarlet red is seen literally [...]
