Cloud Nothings – Here and Nowhere Else Reivew

Life sucks, I understand. Many of the most important decisions come at an age where the brain hasn’t fully developed to make rational decisions. The irony behind setting out on a plan to make the life defining choices when the maximum potential for making the choice hasn’t been reached yet is unbelievable. At 19, decidingContinue reading “Cloud Nothings – Here and Nowhere Else Reivew”

Marla Mase – “Halflife EP” Review

At least once a week, Apostrophe by Frank Zappa is played in my perimeter. The weird, comedic vibes Zappa gives off on his most traditional blues rock album puts a smile on my face that I can’t seem to shake. It’s incredible put together, with songs flowing into one another like a Cirque du Soleil show. IContinue reading “Marla Mase – “Halflife EP” Review”

Sunn O))) & Ulver – Terrestials

How does one get into a genre comprised of a single distorted note for a stretch of time? It makes sense to pass up something so silly, so outrageous on paper. but trust me, it is a treat to listen to such a thing. Now it has it’s place. Whether it’s for studying, or forContinue reading “Sunn O))) & Ulver – Terrestials”

Gumshen – Progtronica review

Whenever I think about the future, I will think about what will still be thought about 10, 20, 30 years into the future. All our fads, all our styles, all our words, how much will be used? I tend to combine that with the thought that if a famous celebrity would be around today, wouldContinue reading “Gumshen – Progtronica review”

New Mongrels – Raised Incorruptible review

Never in my life have I heard of a band that has lasted almost double the life span of a human. New Mongrols is an Americana-Folk band that has been around for 148 years, and has had their characteristics passed from generation to generation like a sacred token of family pride. Their roots began withContinue reading “New Mongrels – Raised Incorruptible review”

Following up the amazing Strange Mercy, St. Vincent will release her fourth album on February 25th, 2014 off a new deal with Republic Records here in North America.

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. I understand there are many acts that are pretty bad (Nickelback, Finger Eleven), but claim bands that garner aContinue reading “Underground Mondays: Different Days EP”

Tim Hecker – Virgins review

There’s already been a surprising amount of great electronic music released in 2013, and with the year wrapping up shortly, I’d like to bring up another release that stands out. Hailing from Vancouver, BC and taking his project to Montreal, Hecker has created a name for himself in the experimental music scene since his Imaginary Country releaseContinue reading “Tim Hecker – Virgins review”

Oneohtrix Point Never – R Plus Seven

For the past three weeks, I’ve attempted to write this review about five times with the same events happening. First, I create a strong opening line that describes my feeling about the album, followed by a point that talks about the artist, but by the time I get around to actually describing why I feelContinue reading “Oneohtrix Point Never – R Plus Seven”

Typhoon – White Lighter

Many music enthusiasts have that one ‘personal’ band which they take pride in knowing. It’s the hipster culture of modern music, but the then again there’s always been pretentious music snobs. A band I’ve been following since their beginnings is a renown Portland indie rock, indie pop band named Typhoon. The monster 11 piece orchestraContinue reading “Typhoon – White Lighter”
