Late – Phantom Papers EP

Late – Phantom Papers EP

Ah Burial, what have you started. Ever since the previously enigmatic producer released his debut album, (I say previously- we now know he’s some bloke called Will) the branch of electronic music that would become known as Dubstep has seen a whole host of copycats flocking to cash in. After...

Video: The Walkmen – “While I Shovel Snow” by Jake Davis

The Walkmen “While I Shovel The Snow” from Jake Davis on Vimeo. It’s supposed to snow in San Francisco this weekend. It won’t. But people are going fucking nuts over it anyways. I even bet a girl I like a million bucks that it won’t snow, that’s how much it...

Locrian – The Crystal World

Locrian – The Crystal World

Fear is not immediate. Fear is a constant. A glass echo in the shadows, long and complete. Fear is what drives us to do extraordinary things. Fear fuels irrationality, feeds endorphins. Forces us to face the portrait, torn and stained by feeble attempts to write a better history. It is...

The Builders and The Butchers – Dead Reckoning

The Builders and The Butchers – Dead Reckoning

When listening to any new work by The Builders and The Butchers, the same thought crosses my mind – it sounds exactly like everything they’ve recorded so far. For The Builders and The Butchers, this is not a negative thing. This is due to consistency, not repetition. Considering that there...

Radiohead – The King Of Limbs

Radiohead – The King Of Limbs

(note: Microsoft Office 2007 recognizes Radiohead as a proper noun) I remember buying Kid A on its release day. It was lunchtime on a Tuesday during the third day of October, 2000. It was slightly overcast but reasonably warm. I remember that day because the release of Green Day’s Warning...

Ringo Deathstarr – Colour Trip

Ringo Deathstarr – Colour Trip

Ringo Deathstarr and their attached genre of Texan shoegaze sounds like a fabrication intended to be nothing more than a send up of contemporary indie music. But it is not. I can offer proof that Ringo Deathstarr exists and has been mucking around the underground for a couple of years....

Solar Bears – She Was Coloured In

The latest up and comers to arise from established electronic label Planet Mu are Solar Bears. Having already reviewed their Inner Sunshine EP in August, I was eager to get my hands on the duos full length effort. One of my complaints of Inner Sunshine EP was that it was,...

Happy Radiohead Day – “The King Of Limbs” Is Available Now

You gotta love Radiohead if for no other reason they know how to release an album. Like a dominatrix towering over a balding, sweating, trembling middle aged wallstreeter with a ball gag in; they’re in control. Radiohead is the biggest band around right now and yet no one had any...

Saigon – The Greatest Story Nevery Told

Saigon – The Greatest Story Nevery Told

Saigon you beautiful bitch. Despite getting dropped from your record label for not being radio-friendly enough, you went ahead and made the best hip hop album, most likely to make the Entourage faction of your fanbase as uncomfortable as possible. And its beautiful. That’s code of course. The whole “Entourage...

Bars of Gold – Of Gold

Bars of Gold – Of Gold

Goddamn, this is a breath of fresh air. Most records are expected. Most come with some fucking “members of” qualification and you either squeal or shrug or gloss right over all the bands you never knew and still don’t know if you should. Some records are recommended if you like...
