Sun Kil Moon – Benji Review

I’ve never traveled to the Midwest. I guess it could be said that I would love to take a chance to explore it in the future. I’ve only experienced it through music from 90’s emo bands like American Football or Cap’n Jazz. What has defined the area to me is their constant output of strainedContinue reading “Sun Kil Moon – Benji Review”

How does one get into a genre comprised of a single distorted note for a stretch of time?

Against Me! – Transgender Dysphoria Blues Review

Let me clear the air before I jump right into the review, I DO NOT CARE about the whole Laura Jane Grace news.

Gumshen – Progtronica review

I tend to combine that with the thought that if a famous celebrity would be around today, wouldContinue reading “Gumshen – Progtronica review”

Actress – Ghettoville Review

I find that I’ve personally found it hard to sit down and enjoy an album like I would with a book or a movie. It’s not something I believe is the same, as music can provide an overlying emotion on many aspects of our lives. It’s in our cars, while we walk, while we shop,Continue reading “Actress – Ghettoville Review”

Producer/Songwriter of School of Seven Bells Benjamin Curtis dies at 35

Throughout my time in Brooklyn, New York, there were a great number of bands who became the soundtrack to my life. Each band gave me sprinkles of what I needed for the train ride to work or the long walk home, but none of them, for me, were more impactful and all around transcendental, thanContinue reading “Producer/Songwriter of School of Seven Bells Benjamin Curtis dies at 35”
