Well, Ewen (or Catalan!) is […]

R.E.M.’s Top 20 Songs

If you’re at all like me, you probably associate certain bands with specific moods. In other words, you turn to these bands when they fit your state of mind, match how your day went, or just seem to sound how you feel. R.E.M. has never been one of those bands for me, though. No matter […]

JOHN – God Speed In The National Limit

Band: JOHN Album: God Speed In The National Limit Label: Pets Care Records Release date: Out now Sounds like: Turbo noise rock action destruction and haunted printers. Being able to find stuff is overrated anyway. JOHN (comprised of John on drums  and vocals and John on guitar) are, I’m guessing, more deadpan than a churchyard […]

Live Review: Brand New at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre (10/19)

Photography by Ben Kaye It’s strange to think that my first time at the gorgeous Brooklyn Kings Theatre could be my last time seeing the infallibly excellent Brand New. If that’s how it ends up being scrawled in the books, then it certainly won’t be reflected upon in disappointment. Still, after seeing that grand, majestic […]

METZ – Strange Peace

Band: METZAlbum: Strange PeaceLabel: Sub PopRelease date: Out nowSounds like: Wires wrapping around your neck. Being encased in cellophane. In a hole.  “Like the cannibal silence, dragging on for so long…” The words “you are rolling” (uttered by producer Steve Albini) open Strange Peace, the third album from professional angry nerds (thanks Liam Gallagher) METZ and […]

10 Times St. Vincent Gave No Fucks

The signs have always been there, if you knew where to look for them. The wide-eyed, sweet-looking ingenue on the cover of 2007’s Marry Me actually wasn’t very interested in getting married at all. There was definitely something subtly sinister lurking under the chamber pop flourishes of 2009’s Actor. 2011’s Strange Mercy was more explicitly […]
