Mogwai – Rave Tapes review

I’m entering dangerous territory so I need to tread lightly. There seems to be a desire to crush any sort of discussion on post-rock bands that released a significant album in the 90’s (Godspeed You!, Tortoise), and with Mogwai being one of the culprits, it’s hard to put an honest opinion without backlash. It mustContinue reading “Mogwai – Rave Tapes review”

This Gravity featurette guarantees them winning every technical category in the Oscars

As we draw close to Oscar time, it’s important to remind people just what deserves what, despite what a few dusty-ass raisins in Hollywood say. I said it before and I will say it again, the Oscars should be a peoples choice award and there shouldn’t be separate categories for male and female actors….there…my twoContinue reading “This Gravity featurette guarantees them winning every technical category in the Oscars”

TOP 20 ALBUMS OF 2013

I hate starting these posts off with “It’s that time of year again”, BUT IT IS!!!!!!!!

The Wachowski’s trailer for Jupiter Ascending starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum is…

BWAAAHAHAHAHA! I had to get that out. Why the ears Wachowski’s? And that goat..omg! Channing Tatum looks  ridiculous. I really don’t know what to say about this trailer for The Wachowski’s latest film Jupiter Ascending, about a girl on Earth that has no idea she’s a princess on another planet? I can’t…I just….oh God, watchContinue reading “The Wachowski’s trailer for Jupiter Ascending starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum is…”

Underground Mondays: Different Days EP

Nothing makes me more upset than when someone claims to enjoy “everything”, but can’t enjoy the simple things in music. I mean, pop and radio rock is the least challenging form of music to listen to.

Turntablism (if that’s a word) has come a long way since the release of it’s arguable epitome of Entroducing….. in 1996 Although that primarily fits in as a hip-hop record, it led the way for future acts such as Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, and even AraabMuzik. Now these latter musicians take a more electronic roots approach by usingContinue reading “Underground Mondays: Sound Strider – Intrepid Travels EP”

Death Grips – Government Plates

Let’s take a moment and review some of the antics this group has caused in the past year and a half. They single handily won over an entire audience with The Money Store, which received worldly acclaim, and then gave the middle finger to the same record company by releasing No Love Deep Web without their permission.Continue reading “Death Grips – Government Plates”
