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...

Album Review: Reptile Youth

Published in Album Reviews
Thursday, 01 November 2012 21:17
    Vocalist Mads Damsgaard Kristiansen and bassist Esben Valløe started making music under the moniker “Reptile Youth” in 2009, and though it took the duo three years to releases its debut record, it wasn’t because of a lack of focus. In the interim, the Denmark-based two-piece has been making a name for itself by touring the globe and along w...

Album Review: Ultraísta--Ultraísta

Published in Album Reviews
Thursday, 18 October 2012 20:41
Ultraísta may be a brand new band, but its members are far from amateurs. The London-based trio comprises Grammy-winning producer Nigel Godrich (better known as Radiohead’s fifth member), journeyman drummer Joey Waronker and Goldsmiths College alum, vocalist Laura Bettinson. The three-piece admits that it came together through a mutual love for A...
Trying to decide who to see at my first full day at Bonnaroo was an easy selection: The Dirty Guv'nahs. Since  I missed their main set yesterday, I knew I had to catch them this time and I'm glad I did. The band drew a nice crowd when you take into consideration their early set time and small stage, but they surely didn't let the stage siz...

Tuesday night marked my second venture to a Check Yo Ponytail 2 event, and just like my first experience, the night included energetic, electronic, dance-inducing acts, with Crystal Fighters as the headliner. Before this show, I honestly did not know much about the London-via-Spain electronic five-piece, but as soon as the performance ended, I r...

Album Review: Miike Snow, Happy To You

Published in Album Reviews
Thursday, 19 April 2012 01:09
If Miike Snow’s eponymous debut is this relatively new band’s introduction to indie-friendly electro-pop music, then this sophomore offering by Stockholm-based trio is their gate to top-40 success. For some this is a revelation, but if you found comfort in the band’s mid-tempo beats, twinkling synths and easy-listening rendition of Scandinavian e...
