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.

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...

This past Saturday night, May 7th, I headed down to the House of Blues in Anaheim to check out Portugal. The Man in concert for the second time.  The first time I saw this strangely wonderful band play was last October at the El Rey, and I was relatively unfamiliar with their stuff.  Now wholly enamored with 2009’s Satanic Satanist, an owner of t...

An Interview with Toronto's The Apollo Effect

Published in Interviews
Friday, 06 May 2011 13:00
The Apollo Effect came on to my radar when they uploaded their video for "The Honeymoon is Over" (posted below) to BNBTV.  Their sound is a little bit of 80s glam, a little 90s-Brit angst, and maybe a little 2000s era post-grunge/pop-punk.  Basically, the band sounds a bit like if The Killers' Hot Fuss-era Brandon Flowers, Oasis' Liam Gallagher, ...
