Avant-rock, punk, or whatever you want to call it, Throwaway comes at you strong with a ripping guitar and lots to say.

5. Troy Gregory – “As Coroner I Must Aver”
Troy Gregory is on his own wavelength with his new release “Laura”. It’s a progressive, alternative rock album that feels nightmarish with disorientingly fuzzy guitar that is thicker than thick. Each track follows the same wet guitar riffs and echoing vocals, which maintains this sense of darkness that’s hard to shake once you finish the album. It’s a deep-diver, that’s for sure. If you like thick, wet guitar and some trippy vocals, then this is for you.READ MORE: Michigan Ballot Initiative Aims To Protect Abortion Rights
