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...

Wooden Head by The Proper Ornaments

Wooden Head by The Proper Ornaments

16 July 2014

New York - Wooden Head is an easy album to like; with soft-spoken lyrics and melodic guitar riffs so mellow, the modern listener may go as far as to call it “chill.” However, it’s hard to speak of such an old-timey sounding record in current slang terms....

The Sea Life - Track Review And Interview

16 July 2014

Brooklyn – Maryland’s own The Sea Life is a beloved local band well worthy of farther-flung audiences. The group’s work is engineered for lovers of long-game bedroom rock, steeped in sonic dissonance and stewed in lyrical conjecturing. Armed with just enough of a catalog to appeal to...

Published in Live Reviews
Monday, 24 March 2014 04:42
Austin – In preparation of a 20 date European tour, Elijah Ford headlined The Sahara Lounge sans his usual band, The Bloom.  He will be playing acoustic on tour, so an acoustic set is what we got at The Sahara. Always an interesting crowd, the venue caters to world musicians but also holds rock shows.  Because the older reggae guys are usually i...

Deap Vally

Wednesday, 19 March 2014 07:34
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...

The Longshots LP

Monday, 03 March 2014 08:21
Nashville – ZZ Top, Spoon, Eli Young Band – you would have to be living under a rock, sanctioned off from all music of any kind to not have heard of at least one of these bands. The thing they all have in common? Texas. These bands (and many more) are from the second largest state in the union, and all have found some form of success.  Out of th...

New Madrid Transports Audience with Psychedelic Rock

Published in Live Reviews
Thursday, 27 February 2014 21:00
Nashville – It is always so refreshing when a band or artist picks a name that truly evokes a vision that relates entirely to the sort of music they play. When I first heard the name New Madrid, what came to mind was a mysterious, European country landscape in the early morning. Fog would be drifting low across the ground as if too lazy to rise h...

Bombay Bicycle Club – So Long, See You Tomorrow

Published in Album Reviews
Thursday, 06 February 2014 06:54
New York - Swerving in unexpected directions with each release, Bombay Bicycle Club is not an act that fears change. Never shy to switch up their sonic styling, this London-based alt-rock outfit has just released their fourth studio album. So Long, See You Tomorrow is predictably unpredictable in acutely profound ways. An all-star cast, the band...
