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...

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...

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...

Thursday, 27 February 2014 21:00

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...

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...
