Crowdfunding: Patreon – Americana Rock Mix

Crowdfunding: Patreon – Americana Rock Mix

I am a fan of crowdfunding and the patron model. While there’s debate as to whether the patron model is true crowdfunding, that’s over my head. The point is that people out there do stuff we like and the whole entertainment industry, aside from big movies, is pretty much dead set on actually supporting anyone. […]

Ostrov’s Best of 2015

Ostrov’s Best of 2015

I first started writing for Ninebullets during 2011 and it has been one of the greatest joys of my past 5 years. That year, I remember being thrilled that the Suburban Home website linked to my reviews of Josh Small and Lizzie Huffman records. Thank you as always to AIV for bringing me on and […]

Easing In To Things

Easing In To Things

We’re going to take it easy right now while everyone gets acclimated and I make some changes behind the scenes in preparation for opening up submissions to the public. User Submissions are technically open but mostly for testing purposes, the CSS still needs a lot of work but the basic functionality should be there. You […]

New Beginnings For A New Year

New Beginnings For A New Year

The start of 2016 marks a new beginning for 9B. Staff has changed quite a bit and we’ve pared to down to a much smaller crew. There wasn’t any drama in this happening; people grow, change, and move on and I wish everyone who’s ever been a part of 9 Bullets all the best. Over […]

Hamilton – Original Broadway Cast Recording – 2015

Hamilton – Original Broadway Cast Recording – 2015

Buckle in, folks, because it’s about to get different up in here. In addition to my sometimes fanatical devotion to our mutt genre, I have a few other musical passions; namely, rap and musical theatre. Hamilton: An American Musical combines those passions with my healthy love of American history. Deep down, this makes a lot of sense. Needing […]

The Rock Report- Great Peacock

The Rock Report- Great Peacock

Last night I had the great good fortune to see Great Peacock live for the first time. I’ve been listening to them for years now, their virtues lovingly espoused by their supporters over at This Is American Music, and I reviewed their debut album Making Ghosts right here.  While I undoubtedly enjoyed their music, it was seeing […]

Around The Web – Late August Edition

Around The Web – Late August Edition

We’ve been awful quiet this week, there’s a lot of real life stuff going on for all us and that’s put a bit of a damper on our output. Unfortunately you can expect things to be sporadic for a couple more weeks due to my schedule if nothing else. However slammed we are there’s been […]

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats – Self Titled – 2015

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats – Self Titled – 2015

My introduction to Nathaniel Rateliff was the 2012 Revival Tour; I’d gone to see Cory Branan and Chuck Ragan, but the rest of the audience was there to see Laura Jane Grace (then Tom Gabel) and an impromptu Alkaline Trio reunion. I hadn’t expected Rateliff. Instead of a shouting folk set or a swaggering punk […]
