Tape Wyrm VI: Heavy Metal Wedding

Heavy Metal Wedding I am getting married next week. I know everything happens so fast and it just seems like last year I came aboard as the new Pinpoint writer. I want too thank Charles for a wonderful bachelor party which consisted of nothing but eating peyote and listening to...

The War On Drugs – Slave Ambient

The War On Drugs – Slave Ambient

Do you know what I need after multiple reviews of obscure European electronic music? Indie. I’m not in the mood for anything angular, experimental or complicated. I just want a cocktail of simplistic Americana indie rock which could be the soundtrack to laid off coal workers. The War On Drugs...

New Single/Official Video: Bjork – “Crystalline” (Directed by Michel Gondry)

New Single/Official Video: Bjork – “Crystalline” (Directed by Michel Gondry)

Cool video. Cool artist. Cool director. But I just have to mention how disappointed I was with the Bjork interview in that Chuck Klosterman book IV: A Decade of Curious People and Dangerous Ideas. It almost makes me feel like the whole “Bjork is soooooo weird” thing is kinda of...

Tin Ear Tuesday – Hell Yes, It Is!

Tin Ear Tuesday – Hell Yes, It Is!

My girlfriend tells me Tuesday is the best day to get surgery and I guess I believe it. Everyone’s over their case of the…gulp…”Mondays” and they’re not yet on the downward spiral of weekend thinking. Still and all, I think it sucks. Worse than Monday. Worse than Sunday. Worse than...

Iceage – New Brigade

Iceage – New Brigade

Of course, I’m listening to Iceage. Their first record, New Brigade is turning all sorts of scowling hipster heads from their Bon Iver folk erections and bemused (and wantonly degraded) triumph of the hatemongering skate rat beats of the Odd Future crew. And with all the hyperbolic bullshit that’s been...

Wugazi – 13 Chambers

Wugazi – 13 Chambers

Holy shit…I love free albums. Let me amend that last statement. I appreciate when albums are offered for free despite the obvious level of work put into the product. Wugazi is a project unsurprisingly combining the work of post punk anti-idols Fugazi and hip hop icons The Wu Tang Clan....

White Denim – D

White Denim – D

The time: deep summer, 1976. The place: a lake, or possibly a quarry. The scene: a raucous bar-be-que, the scent of grilled meats, cold beer, cheap weed, and sweaty bodies comingling in a seasonal bouquet of good times and bad decisions. The sounds: White Denim’s D. Over the course of...
