Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ - Enter the Slasher House

20 April 2014

Austin - Though the band name and cover art might suggest some sort of black metal nightmare, Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ “Enter the Slasher House” is more like a whimsical fun house.  If anything, this album was created from the trappings of a bad acid trip, though...

Rubblebucket is a Super Fun Party on Stage

Published in Live Reviews
Tuesday, 20 November 2012 02:58
Neon colors, LED light accessories, giant dancing robots, sing-a-longs, and crowd-surfing second line parades are some of the things you can expect at a Rubblebucket show. You can expect your face to start hurting from smiling so much, but to not care because you’re at a super fun party where you could get blasted in the face by either a trumpet ...

Taking in The Helio Sequence at Bowery Ballroom

Published in Live Reviews
Monday, 19 November 2012 20:59
Seeing The Helio Sequence live is a cathartic experience. Since they’re touring in support of what may be their most introspective and meditative album yet, Negotiations, this makes complete sense. Guitarist/vocalist Brandon Summers and Drummer/keyboardist Benjamin Weikel come off as mellow, understated folk who have a keen sense for spacious, at...

The Fresh & Onlys are one of those bands where it’s easy not to realize exactly how good they are until experienced live. With introspective lyrics set to heavily hazy psych pop jams, they grooved and rocked thro...

Saturday night was the finale for CMJ 2012, five days jam-packed (literally) with panels, shows, powwows, and late nights. It was like cramming a month into a week. The final show that I was not mad about at all was Wild Nothing, BRAIDS, and Weekend at Bowery Ballroom. In a way, this show summed up the whole festival for me, as the whole ex...

CMJ 2012 Day 4: Dent May and Turbo Fruits

Published in Festivals
Saturday, 20 October 2012 19:04
Friday night was the Panache Showcase at Public Assembly, with their fun and eccentric roster of bands ranging from Dent May to Violent Bullshit. I ended up only seeing enough of the latter to see front man Jayson Green getting in a heckling war with a dudebro. After realizing the futility of what was becoming a pointless heck loop, he cut the du...
