Watch The Lonely Island’s New Single “YOLO”

Watch The Lonely Island’s New Single “YOLO”

Watch the comedy troupe gear up for their third album with a single that boasts high production and below average writing with some cameos which took up probably most of its budget. Listen, that was harsh. Personally, I have always been a fan of The Lonely Island and found their...

Jacuzzi Boys – Encore! Sessions – Miami Art Basel

Jacuzzi Boys – Encore! Sessions – Miami Art Basel

Iggy thinks their name is “stupid.” Spin calls them “racket-makers.” Pitchfork describes them as “reasonably lively.” And, yes, we took some of those notions out of context this morning (Iggy went on to say they had “good spirit”) but you can bet your sweet little scene-stomping fanny that the Jacuzzi...

The Bronx – The Bronx (IV)

The Bronx – The Bronx (IV)

Preparing to review the fourth self-titled album from The Bronx was actually my first time hearing them. I had heard of The Bronx, but haven’t been listening to their genre of music in nearly a decade. Maybe because of that, the first few listens made their music seem somewhat out...

Punk Rock Bowling? PUNK ROCK BOWLING!

Punk Rock Bowling? PUNK ROCK BOWLING!

For fifteen years, now, the best damn punk rock party the kids have ever known has descended upon the Downtown Fremont East District of Las Vegas for four days of music, gambling, drinking and…well, bowling and this year (May 24-27) looks to be one of the choicest expressions of mohican...

Tin Ear Tuesday – Spirit Supply

Tin Ear Tuesday – Spirit Supply from pinpointmusic on 8tracks Radio. I’ve been in Candler, NC staying at a haunted B&B by myself (save two little dogs [one of whom might no longer hate me] and the sporadic company of the neighbors) for the last seven days and in that...

Toro y Moi – Anything In Return

Toro y Moi – Anything In Return

I never ate twinkles because I was a fat kid. I didn’t get fat by eating Twinkies, and certainly had no reason to dislike them, but I wouldn’t get near them for the fear someone would make a quick association and pigeonhole me. As evidenced by his latest work for...

Tape Wyrm XXXVI: 2012 Amendments

Tape Wyrm XXXVI: 2012 Amendments

Things I missed in 2012 I think in other posts I have made it clear that I am not infallible. Despite my best wishes to model myself after an emotionless onboard sentient computer for a spaceship, I am merely one human aboard. This is why I can do these sorts...

WTF was that? Aleister X premiers new video for “LAX”

WTF was that? Aleister X premiers new video for “LAX”

Aleister X, the mysterious white-faced party protege of Andrew W.K., recently released the video for “LAX” (the first from his upcoming Half-Speed Mastered) on Noisey and it’s…um…well, it certainly is, isn’t it? Opening with a pop harmonic theme “We Will Never Die/Way Up High/In The Sky” to the scrolling declaration...

Future of the Left Interview – SXSW 2012, etc.

Future of the Left Interview – SXSW 2012, etc.

SXSW 2012 was – by all accounts – the closest thing to a Bacchanalia that Pinpoint (as a whole) has ever experienced. So much beer. So very much pork. Hot tubs and wet heat and rock and confusion and somehow, in the middle of all that, we managed to snag...
