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”

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”

TOP 20 ALBUMS OF 2013

I hate starting these posts off with “It’s that time of year again”, BUT IT IS!!!!!!!! Tons of great albums this year, but my boy Ryan and I had to narrow them down to twenty so as not to make this post too long winded. Some of the artists on this list are well knownContinue reading “TOP 20 ALBUMS OF 2013”

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”

Candy Cigarettes stands out among many bedroom acts

I always find it amazing when I hear music that’s created in a bedroom studio. It always has a cozy, warm aesthetic that’s much more listenable than any other genre I find. Perfume Genius and Youth Lagoon have really captured the essence of bringing the music from the bedroom (or a friends) to life. WithContinue reading “Candy Cigarettes stands out among many bedroom acts”

Listen to a new Arcade Fire song “Afterlife”

MITNG has been covering the recent news for Reflektor very heavily, and it’s come to the surface that a studio release for a song titled “Afterlife” has arrived. On Zane Lowe’s BBC radio show, he premiered the track, which resembles the early 80’s dance floor scene, especially in England. It still has that classic Arcade FireContinue reading “Listen to a new Arcade Fire song “Afterlife””

The band continues to holdContinue reading “Arcade Fire release yet another trailer”

Danny Brown – Old

From the beginning of “Side A”, it’s obvious that Danny Brown has changed. Since his 2011 release, XXX, Danny has reached some major ups and downs. His unique character of being Detroit’s King Pin in rap has been hidden by the fact that he isn’t a usual player in the modern rap game. Compared toContinue reading “Danny Brown – Old”
