Emperor X – The Orland Sentinel

Emperor X – The Orland Sentinel

There are a lot of dudes out there, these days, slinging their hat on the one-man (mostly) band bracket, playing up the slop sink, lost fidelity aesthetic like it’s a badge of homely honor as opposed...

Outside Lands 2014 Spotlight: Christopher Owens

So Christopher Owens has a crazy life, right? Forget that he grew up in a travelling gypsy cult, that’s real, that happens and I know people who’ve lived an iteration of that, kind of, (unlike boring-ass...

Wreck & Reference – Want

I don’t think I can do this. I can’t. I’m a man, goddamnit. I’m not fat. I don’t cut myself and I don’t cry after sex. I know I was never a vampire and neither was...

Outside Lands 2014 Spotlight: Lucius

If you’re going to any music festival, Lucius is exactly the type of band you want to get to know. Set aside what they actually sound like and what you might expect from their live performance,...

Slow Club – Complete Surrender

Slow Club – Complete Surrender

Slow Club seemingly enjoys challenging themselves to bound across musical plains. In the handful of EPs and full-lengths they’ve released since 2006 none have sounded like the one before or after it. There’s really no musical...

Emperor X – The Orland Sentinel

There are a lot of dudes out there, these days, slinging their hat on the one-man (mostly) band bracket, playing up the slop sink, lost fidelity aesthetic like it’s a badge of homely honor as opposed to a first world reactionary privilege and some of them are good, sure…really goddamn...

If you’re going to any music festival, Lucius is exactly the type of band you want to get to know. Set aside what they actually sound like and what you might expect from their live performance, you will instantly earn a shit-ton of social currency for knowing a girl-band that...

Slow Club – Complete Surrender

Slow Club seemingly enjoys challenging themselves to bound across musical plains. In the handful of EPs and full-lengths they’ve released since 2006 none have sounded like the one before or after it. There’s really no musical boundaries with Slow Club largely due to the band’s primary members, English duo Charles...

Death Grips – Niggas on the Moon

Death Grips – Niggas on the Moon

Death Grips is dead and Niggas on the Moon is the “band’s” (quotation marks taken from Death Grip’s Facebook annihilation napkin statement) first pass on impressing their eulogy on art, time and the maddened zipgun massive. A wantonly irritable catalog of prickling, debilitated soundscapes released freely a few short weeks...

RATKING – So It Goes

RATKING – So It Goes

If you happen to come across a writhing mass of rats intertwined by their tails, essentially knotted together with blood, feces and dirt, you have found a rat king.  A rare phenomenon associated with bad omens, more specifically plagues. If you happen to come across a New York rap trio...
