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.

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...

  New York - How To Dress Well is the moniker of soloist Tom Krell, a musician whose canon of songs nestle in the realm of ambient, alternative R&B. Krell's most recent album, however, What Is This Heart? (Weird World Records/Domino Recording Co) moves towards something operatic in structure and in sentiment. True to form, the tracks throughou...
  San Francisco - Not every day is a good day.  Sometimes, there are unpleasant experiences that can gnaw at us, like being late in line at the post office or persistent nausea on the bus. Though they are often quite temporary, these mild instances of discomfort  can feel like the world is ending.  Yet these moments pass, and we forget about them…...

Shannon and the Clams

Published in Interviews
Wednesday, 07 May 2014 19:10
Austin - Shannon and the Clams emerged from Oakland in 2009.  Their sound is not just nostalgic, it sounds like authentic music from the 50’s and 60’s.  Front woman Shannon Shaw has a powerful rasp which vocalist/guitarist Cody Blanchard nearly matches, giving the sound of a doo-wop girl group.  Though a bit of an odd line-up choice for Austin Ps...

Tuesday, 01 April 2014 08:58
Houston – If you’re going to go to Houston, TX, you’ll want Fat Tony to show you around.  As I was told by one gentleman, “Fat Tony runs Houston yo.”  Luckily, I had Anthony Obi, better known as Fat Tony, to show me around this weekend.  Though I’ve seen him many times in Austin and Los Angeles, seeing him perform in his element was a completely ...

Sunday, 22 September 2013 12:16
  While listening to "Possibilities", the latest EP from the up and coming Austin, TX outfit Saints of Valory, there’s sort of a parallel to watching a movie like "October Sky" or perhaps even "Cool Runnings." First is the overwhelmingly optimistic aesthetic that no matter where you are bound to geographically, barriers and obstacles can be conque...

Thursday, 21 June 2012 01:08
“Do we have any knitters in the house?” asked Disjecta Art Center Executive Director Bryan Suereth this past Friday night. It wasn’t until two hands quickly shot up in the audience that I realized this question wasn’t a joke. The second annual Quiet Music Festival would be exactly what it advertised to be: quiet. Until then, I had forecasted thi...
