No Family Is Safe When I Sashay – Perfume Genius

22 July 2014

New York - Perfume Genius is the moniker of Seattle’s own singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas. Since his debut, this soloist’s tracks have crashed through playlists with unforgiving, tidal might.

Album Review: Never Hungover Again By Joyce Manor

20 July 2014

New York - Never Hungover Again is a punk rock gem and, as most great albums are, perhaps too short for how good it is.  Each song stays under the usual three minute mark, but despite its length, the record doesn’t skimp on narrative or depth. The...

Tiny Ruins at Mississippi Studios

Written by Thursday, 24 July 2014 15:09
Portland - Hollie Fullbrook's calm, pensive singing might lead one to believe that she's already been defeated by the world. Maybe it’s because of that distant gaze, or her modest attire. Maybe it's the way she gently sways on stage, or the way she glances down occasionally to reflect in the warm lamplight. She's got the mild mannerisms of someone who watches what she says, someone who's felt the heat of love and the chill of loss. Yet despite her…

7 New Bands At Pitchfork – Day Three

Written by Monday, 21 July 2014 09:23
Chicago – The final day of a weekend festival is always bittersweet. Even though you are exhausted, you dance and sing as if there’s no tomorrow, fighting off the inevitable: the wave of melancholy that will wash over you when you exit the festival grounds with the masses, calmed only by thoughts of doing it all over again next year.

Seattle – The indie electro-pop rockers of The Night Terrors of 1927, alongside headliners Magic Man, played to a sold-out crowd at The Crocodile Café, where the all-ages audience danced and sang along all night. The Night Terrors of 1927, a new band from Los Angeles, is a project fronted by Jarrod Gorbel, formerly of The Honorary Title, and Blake Sennett, formerly of Rilo Kiley. After releasing their Guilty Pleas EP earlier in 2014, the Night Terrors, who have also…

5 New Bands at Pitchfork – Day Two

Written by Sunday, 20 July 2014 08:34
Chicago – Saturday, Saturday, Saturday! Are you singing a little Elton? I was during day two of Pitchfork Festival. Right from the start, I was feeling it, thanks to one of my favorite local bands- but there were plenty of other new artists who kept Saturday rocking well into the evening. Chicago boys Twin Peaks started off the day with a ruckus, and everyone was woken with a jolt from this up-and-coming garage-rock band. The dudes of Twin Peaks –…
