New TV On The Radio video “Million Miles”

TV On The Radio‘s second single off their “supposed” new album, got a nifty video today that premiered exclusively on Myspace. The song is a quite one, perhaps a reflective moment given the loss of their bass player Gerrard Smith to lung cancer back in April 20th, 2011. They’ve told several media outlet’s that theyContinue reading “New TV On The Radio video “Million Miles””

No Age – An Object

  Lot’s happened in 2010. Vampire Weekend’s Contra debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, Jay Reatard died at 29, Pavement reunited for a tour, and Arcade Fire shocked the world with the Album Of The Year at the notorious Grammy’s. That was three years ago, and time has flown quickly. 2010 was also the lastContinue reading “No Age – An Object”

Deafheaven – Sunbather Review

I wasn’t going to do it. The need for me to bring up this album was huge, but I felt so cliché and predictable doing it. I know even attempting to stand apart from others and mentioning this album was impossible. I don’t know if it was the fact that it’s hugely anticipated, or thatContinue reading “Deafheaven – Sunbather Review”

We Are The City release their sophomore album, Violent

The main reason for independent music’s rise to fame is that it’s different. The musicians claim they have a ‘fresh’ new idea, and they’re ‘not like other bands’. Sadly, the reality is that Indie music is slowly becoming more stale by every release.

Dirty Beaches – Drifters / Love Is The Devil review

When Suicide performed their first concert in East-Side New York, they were booed off stage for their proto-punk attempts.Their simple forward-thinking combination of synthesizers and drum machines could be considered too much to handle for the no-wave crowd of the time. Ironically, the band’s legacy is still found today in top album lists and otherContinue reading “Dirty Beaches – Drifters / Love Is The Devil review”

Review: The National – Trouble Will Find Me

While I was only in New York very briefly, I’ve always found it to be a city full of emotions. I’ve never lived there, only visited, but every I hear an Turn On The Bright Lights by Interpol or Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea by PJ Harvey, I’m immediately dumped right in the heart ofContinue reading “Review: The National – Trouble Will Find Me”

Vampire Weekend succeeds with Modern Vampires Of The City

Both Vampire Weekend and Contra were released in the months of January. I never thought of their music having a winter feeling, but in the end, the record company has the final say on the release date. The New York City indie rock band has always had a summer flair to the upbeat and disjointedContinue reading “Vampire Weekend succeeds with Modern Vampires Of The City”

James Blake tops his debut with Overgrown

I have a dark secret. Back in 2011, I skipped out on James Blake’s debut LP, James Blake, because of skepticism. That probably came from the uprising of bro-step, and another dubstep fad wasn’t something I was looking forward too. Months after it’s February of 2011 release, I decided to embark on a listen because of its astonishingContinue reading “James Blake tops his debut with Overgrown”
