Ty Segall, “Mr. Face”

Ty Segall, “Mr. Face”

This time teaming up with Brooklyn indie label, Famous Class, Segall has released a special edition 7″ EP entitled Mr. Face. The EP retains the whirling psychedelic rock that Segall has long been associated with, […]

The Self-Titled EP by River Whyless

The Self-Titled EP by River Whyless

For bands with multiple songwriters, it can be a challenge to create a compilation of songs that is coherent and cohesive. It takes a tremendous amount of trust and openness in order to incorporate the various ideas being presented. In some situations, it works, but even some of the great bands in history have broken up due to creative differences […]

Paperhaus – “So Slow”

Paperhaus – “So Slow”

DC psych rock band Paperhaus is sharing a single, “So Slow” off of their upcoming debut LP. This is a great track, and despite it being the shortest track on the upcoming LP, there is a whole lot going on.  A large mix of influences, with a bass line that is rooted in reggae and ska, a guitar solo that […]

Grand Lake Islands, “Song From Far”

Grand Lake Islands, “Song From Far”

Not too long ago, Erik Emanuelson bid adieu to his students, his stable job, and packed his bags for Portland to pursue musical dreams. The former English teacher had a lot on the line – some might say his adventure was crazy- but with a full band behind him, Emanuelson can say he’s made it with Grand Lake Islands‘ second […]

Buzzing Self-Titled EP by Stalls

Buzzing Self-Titled EP by Stalls

There’s something remarkable about the self-titled debut EP by Stalls, the indie-rock trio from Oakland. Maybe it’s the modern spin of 70s-era post-punk and glam rock, but in a way that’s accessible, catchy, yet without all the unnecessary bells and whistles. Maybe it’s the respect the band pays to that decade’s music, as it seems every detail – from each […]

Next week is a huge week. New albums by Sleater-Kinney, their first in nearly 10 years; Portland storytellers The Decemberists; and the fun and eclectic Belle and Sebastian.

Hidden Gem: L.A. Garage-Punk-Pop Trio, Susan

Hidden Gem: L.A. Garage-Punk-Pop Trio, Susan

One of our favourite Hidden Gems of 2015 was Sumeau, whose psych-pop was overshadowed by the plethora of mainstream and indie music coming out of Los Angeles. To kick off 2015, we head back to the City of Angels for our first Hidden Gem of the year (at least in terms of an actual band) – Susan. Unlike Sumeau, Susan […]

A Quick Conversation with…TMM

A Quick Conversation with…TMM

I live in Austin, TX and always love finding out about a new band from my current place of residence. Austin touts itself as the Music Capitol of the World so there is no surprise that even if I dedicated all my time on bands with Austin connections only, I could be writing for quite a while. I happened across Texas […]

To Kill A King – Love is Not Control

To Kill A King – Love is Not Control

I have been following UK’s To Kill A King (TKAK) for quite a while. I can actually thank them for getting me turned onto Sofar Sounds Austin as they were promoting playing with Sofar during SXSW last year. Although I did not get to see them play at a Sofar gig,  I did get to see them open for Bastille […]

Album Revue: Sleater-Kinney – ‘No Cities To Love’

Album Revue: Sleater-Kinney – ‘No Cities To Love’

I can’t quite believe I’m writing a review of a new Sleater-Kinney record in 2015.  When they called it quits and went their separate ways, It didn’t seem like it was permanent, but the reality of the end set in after a while.  I remember hearing “Jumpers” on the radio followed up by the DJ saying something like “I’m going […]

Waxahatchee – Air

Yesterday, Katie Crutchfield, the creative force behind Waxahatchee officially announced details about her upcoming record, Ivy Tripp. Ivy Tripp will be released on April 7th of this year.

Robin Bacior, Water Dreams

Robin Bacior, Water Dreams

There was a time when almost any song that was piano-based was considered to be “classical”, “lounge”, or performed by Elton John. It was music that only appealed to a select audience. Over the past decade, though, we’ve seen a wide-range of musicians embrace the piano as the focal instrument, maintaining its dramatic quality but using it in ways that […]

A Conversation with Julia Catherine Parr of Black City Lights

A Conversation with Julia Catherine Parr of Black City Lights

There are musicians around the world whose sole goal is to make you want to dance. There are those who want to challenge how you perceive sound. Then there are those that want to entrap your mind and take you to places, sometimes to an unknown landscape, sometimes above the clouds, or sometimes even to dark places that you did […]
