BODEGA – ‘Endless Scroll’ (album review)

BODEGA – ‘Endless Scroll’ (album review)

Endless Scroll by BODEGA If Seth MacFarlane collaborated with Trey Parker and Matt Stone to create a lo-fi, post-punk rock album, what would it sound like? If we had to make a guess, it would resemble Endless Scroll, which is BODEGA‘s incredibly witty, intelligent, and amusing debut album. Packed with 14 songs with only two exceeding the three-minute mark, the […]

The Matinee ’18 March 6th

The Matinee ’18 March 6th

From groovy pop-rock numbers, raucous indie-rock and alternative anthems, stunning dream-pop, foreboding post-punk and indietronica, and creative art-rock, The Matinee ’18 March 6th feels more like autumn than spring. Nonetheless, the music is, as always, terrific.   Hinds – “The Club” (Madrid, Spain) RIYL: Wolf Alice, Honeyblood, Divinyls One could make a strong argument that Hinds are largely responsible for […]

I have taken photos in small clubs, university bars and giant arenas. […]

Black Mountain storms in to Wellington’s Bodega

Black Mountain storms in to Wellington’s Bodega

After traveling across the Pacific and playing in Auckland the night before, the Vancouver-based, psychedelic prog-rockers could have mailed it in, and no […]

Shakey Graves shakes down Bodega (photo essay)

Shakey Graves shakes down Bodega (photo essay)

I was lucky enough to see Alejandro Rose-Garcia – a.k.a. Shakey Graves – twice in one week. This time, with his 2-piece band in tow, Rose-Garcia shook down Bodega for 90 minutes with his high-energy blend of blues-rock. It didn’t take long for pearls of sweat to drip off the Texas gentleman’s face, a testament to the energy he brought […]

Mac DeMarco reigns over Wellington

Mac DeMarco reigns over Wellington

It’s been 18 months since I last saw Mac DeMarco. It was at the 2014 edition of the Ottawa RBC Bluesfest, and before his gig we walked around the grounds to see if a) people recognized him and b) fans knew his full name. This little game of “What’s His Name” was amusing to say the least (you can watch […]
