Monotonix said this was their last tour ever. The guy’s 46 with kids and still performing legendary stage dives and whipping it up at break neck speeds, we’ll all miss the show but I don’t think anyone doesn’t get it. Ty Segall wins the award for rowdiest crowd of the...

Zola Jesus – Stridulum II

Zola Jesus – Stridulum II

I was a teenage vampire. And we’re not talking Robert Pattinson here. Though I may have been pale and slight and shy I was by no means playing up some Mormon abstinential allegory by keeping my true love safe and at arms length while I grappled with the woes of...

Video: YACHT on Vice’s VBS.tv

Every Friday my friend Lindsey and I send each other links from Vice’s Do’s and Don’t’s section; trying to out-gross one another with whatever random weird nipple pic or ass-to-mouth commentary we can find in Vice’s infamous archives. From my guesstimation, this Friday afternoon tradition has wasted thousands of corporate...

Röyksopp – Senior

Röyksopp – Senior

In 2009, Norwegian electro-duo released Junior which quickly made it to the bottom half of many critics top lists. This release, like other Röyksopp albums was well received. Personally, I thought Junior was more daring but less accomplished than other albums including 2005’s The Understanding. Nevertheless, Junior was bright and...

Free Album Streem Today! – The Get Up Kids – “There Are Rules”(2011)

I know nothing about this band. I’m not even gonna try and lie and make up some condescending shit so as to sound superior; I could very well think they are fantastic and be the dude standing in the front row at a show, mouthing every word to every song...

Pariah – Safehouses EP

Pariah – Safehouses EP

There was a time around 2000 when Mark Tom and Travis were at the height of their powers, that turning on the television and tuning into ‘Kerrang!’ would usually guarantee you stumbling upon some sort of eager, over energetic and not very good pop-punk band. I’m not saying that’s a...

Kweli Releases “Gutter Rainbows” on MySpace – Digital Release Set for 1/25

I always look forward to Talib Kweli releases because his conscious raps make me think about things and give me the little bit of musical elitism I crave. Check out the album on MySpace HERE Now, with some non-meaningless snark: pretty cool that Kweli drops the entire album on MySpace,...

Ghostface Killah – Apollo Kids

Ghostface Killah – Apollo Kids

Ghostface is a time machine. But not like a Back to the Future Delorean time machine, the Ghostface Killah time machine only travels from the present to the mid 1990’s, and back. That is to say, despite his many endeavors and a brief journey into the R&B world, nothing has...

Australian Band The Holidays are on their way to SXSW 2011 for their first US shows, and they’re already on our radar as a band to watch. The catchy “Chill Wave” style music featured on their 2010 debut LP Post Paradise shows that The Holidays could fit very well into...
