    Les Biches: Nick Drake, Reimagined

    With reverberated electric guitar, thrashing symbols, and liquid basslines, LA’s Les Biches reimagines one of legendary folk dreamer, Nick Drake’s posthumous releases. Drake’s “Hanging on a Star” was originally released in 1987 on a compilation album called Time of No Reply, with an alternate version released in 2004 on...

    Roadhouse 01 (album) – Allan Rayman

    Allan Rayman has quickly grown into an artist everyone knows and it’s evident on this site. Every track he has released has been better than the last and on February 24, he made another statement by releasing Roadhouse 01. Much like the popular downtempo attitude that we hear in...

    Nightlands – Lost Moon

    As a core member of The War On Drugs, Dave Hartley’s most recent single, “Lost Moon,” follows similar atmospheric, spaced-out sensations found in his previous three LPs under the moniker, Nightlands. I would say my favorite part of this track is the soulful screech emitted from the slide guitar,...

    Bon Iver Live @ Brooklyn’s Pioneer Works

    Written by Colin Kirkland When my friend, Gilly, and I pulled into Red Hook, we looked around wondering whether or not the driver was planning on murdering us, or if he simply drove to the wrong location. Desolation: wide littered streets, abandoned warehouses; there was no one to be...

    REVIEW: The Royal They – Post-Punk Delirium

    Brooklyn-based underground threesome, The Royal They, just released their debut full-length album under King Pizza Records. The self-titled record is a brilliant emotional wreck: a cutting, confrontational, and connected collection with fast-paced mood swings and refreshing hooks. Tapped into what sounds like Nirvana B-sides, The Pixies’ stop-start style, and...

    Review: Bloodboy – Best of Bloodboy

    The first thing that struck me about Lexie Papilion’s LA-based band, Bloodboy, was the name. Before listening to “Fuck Yourself,” the first track off their recently released debut EP, The Best of Bloodboy, I was picturing Ozzy Osbourne ripping a bat head to pieces on stage or some post-grunge...

    Cage The Elephant – Tell Me I’m Pretty

    After the popularity of their last album, especially Melophobia’s tracks “Come a Little Closer” and “Cigarette Daydreams” that shook and took over the alternative music stream late last year, Cage the Elephant comes through with their very alternative sound that keeps us listening throughout their new album. Known for...

    Half Moon Run – Sun Leads Me On

    It’s really hard to find something not to like about Half Moon Run’s new album. The Montreal based band had a lot to live up to after the release of their incredible debut album “Dark Eyes” which brought them the notoriety they have now. In its entirety the experience...
