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...

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...

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...

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...
