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...

New York - Post-SXSW, most of us are either in recovery or sick of hearing about it, but whatever your stance on the validity or value of the festival, you can’t argue that there’s still worthwhile artists at the festival to experience. Yes, it’s a corporate world out there, and for struggling bands that don’t have big brand backing and buzz it m...

Austin – Three years ago I watched Lindsay Troy and Julie Edwards Pirrone take the stage for their first time as Deap Vally.  Both had other projects, for Pirrone the most notable was The Pity Party and for Troy it was her sister act, The Troys.  As They strummed, drummed, and belted the first note, our jaws dropped.  We knew this two-piece was s...

Sunday, 16 March 2014 07:47
Austin - My feet are swollen, wrists adorned with ten wristbands, body aches, hunger pangs, and I feel like I need about a week’s worth of sleep.  SXSW is one of the best but most draining music festivals.  Every building is turned in to a music venue which means you’re often running across town.  Lines are posted down entire blocks while fans ho...

Austin - Day two of SXSW held two of my favorite showcases: Austin Psych Fest and Frenchie Smith Records.  Unfortunately, both were at the same time on opposite sides of town.  During this festival, you just have to make it work.  Both showcases hand-pick each act so you know you’re walking away having seen something new and incredible.  These tw...
