No Family Is Safe When I Sashay – Perfume Genius

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. But Hadreas’ power is neither loud nor sonically invasive. Rather, his work carries a message that’s both apt and...

Alvvays’ New Album Is A Dazed Dream

Alvvays’ New Album Is A Dazed Dream

21 July 2014

Los Angeles - What a debut! Alvvays’ self-titled record is a 9-track, lo-fi haze that is perfect for a joyride down the coastline. The strong and sentimental indie-pop has fanciful guitar breakdowns and vocals from lead singer Molly Rankin that are so fluffy they’re almost too good...

Album Review: Never Hungover Again By Joyce Manor

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...

The Last Night of NYC Popfest 2011

Published in Live Reviews
Monday, 23 May 2011 16:00
Sunday was the last night of NYC Popfest 2011, and I think it’s fair to say that the weekend-long festival has been – at least for the promoters – a success. The Thursday and Friday night shows sold out, as did the festival passes. Musically, Popfest was hit-or-miss. Most of the bands that participate are unknown, many of them performing in popul...

Get excited: The NYC Popfest 2011 is happening this weekend! This festival is in it’s 5th year, and while not one of the bigger ones out there, it has been growing in popularity and notoriety since its first incarnation in 2007. It’s not going to headline Radiohead anytime in near future; instead, expect a lineup with a few of the quasi-famous (a...
Thursday was my first trip to The Rock Shop in Park Slope, and I started my night out in the sports-ish upstairs bar. It had a bustling feel to it despite the relatively small crowd there, and I treated myself to the Brooklyn Summer Ale. Patrons in their upper twenties were eating burgers and fries, playing pool, watching the Yankees Game, prepar...

This past Friday night I got a chance to catch up with Lady Lamb the Beekeeper before her sound check for her show later that night at The Rock Shop, in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. We met at the coffee house across the street from the venue, and it ended up feeling more like catching up with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. I ...
