Choke Up – Black Coffee, Bad Habits

Really? Black Coffee, Bad Habits is a debut album? This record is hard-hitting, polished, and really damn good from start to finish and much more than I would’ve expected from a band’s first full-length but it’s...

You know, I talk about drugs a lot but I rarely, if ever, do them because I can’t, man. I just can’t. There was this fantastic little window, somewhere between my first lay and my last...

Dealer’s Choice – Paper Gates / Paul Vickers and the Leg / Guero

Half the office called in sick today. The other half is lost in a haze of half-sleep twitches and quarter-heart murmurings about the new TV suicide session and how “back in the day” or whatever, whatever,...

Dear Death Grips, I wish I could quit you. I wish I could stand by my promise to not give one (let alone two, as we once discussed) flying fuck about what you say or do...

I was gonna give a little spiel here about ugly pretty and all the wonder to be found in the base assessments of the human condition as co-opted and redefined as tiny daggers etching your great (if not grave) fortune in glass before a merry cloth of minstrels and all...

Half the office called in sick today. The other half is lost in a haze of half-sleep twitches and quarter-heart murmurings about the new TV suicide session and how “back in the day” or whatever, whatever, whatever. Amen. I have no idea why. There were no benders scheduled last night...

Catherine Feeny and Jeremy Mage @ The Living Room – 1.3.15

Within five minutes of taking a seat in the Living Room’s new Williamsburg digs, Catherine Feeny said the lighting was ‘Kafkaesque.’ I nearly gnawed my tongue off to stop myself from screaming. Kafkaesque, eh? I bet the interior decorating was reminiscent of Sartrean nausea, the chairs fashioned in the shape...
