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...

Wooden Head by The Proper Ornaments

Wooden Head by The Proper Ornaments

16 July 2014

New York - Wooden Head is an easy album to like; with soft-spoken lyrics and melodic guitar riffs so mellow, the modern listener may go as far as to call it “chill.” However, it’s hard to speak of such an old-timey sounding record in current slang terms....

Diane Coffee Steals The Show At Barboza

Published in Live Reviews
Tuesday, 26 November 2013 19:27
Seattle - Those Darlins and Diane Coffee played Seattle’s Barboza. I’m going to assert that Those Darlins were having an off night because I refuse to accept that a band with such promise and clout as performers regularly put up such a tiresome act. I still have faith in Those Darlins. Diane Coffee, on the other hand, requires no such blind faith...

Live In Austin: Twenty One Pilots At Emo’s

Published in Live Reviews
Wednesday, 20 November 2013 01:28
