REVIEW: DELPHIC: COLLECTIONS

Delphic’s name refers to the oracle of the Greek god Apollo at Delphi. And you would have thought they were descended from such a god based on the stellar reviews their debut album Acolyte received.

REVIEW: SALLY SHAPIRO: SOMEWHERE ELSE

Sally Shapiro is not a solo artist. We only see the beautiful blonde, fairy-like girl, who does use the pseudonym Sally Shapiro, but technically Sally Shapiro is a duo, the other half consisting of musician/producer Johan Agebjörn.

    GIRL'S DAY: GIRL`S DAY EVERYDAY #4 Release Date:  7/16/14 Label:  Loen Entertainment Girl's Day return with a new summer-themed mini-album.
