Orion Music Festival Announces Lineup

Orion Music Festival Announces Lineup

Last year we sent Charles (with all his “subversive” complaints and condescendence) to Atlantic City for the inaugural Orion Music Festival. He made friends with a hooker, drank a boatful of beer and got the better part of his face rocked off. This year, we’re not so certain. Not because...

Tomahawk – Oddfellows

Tomahawk – Oddfellows

Was it really 2007 when the last Tomahawk record came out? Damn. It doesn’t feel like that long. Tomahawk, for the uninitiated, is a nebulous group consisting of Ipecac related musicians sort of lead by Mike Patton. The group sifts together every couple of years with their last outing in...

Watch The Bronx’s New Clip for “Youth Wasted”

The Bronx just premiered their new video for “Youth Wasted” over at Playgirl.com because The Bronx are pretty much the best. The clip (embedded below) is only NSFW if your work hates fun and shirtless hunks and is also your overprotective mother. Here’s what The Guvn’r had to say about...

Tin Ear Tuesday – Deck of Sand

Tin Ear Tuesday – Deck of Sand

Tin Ear Tuesday – Deck of Sand from pinpointmusic on 8tracks Radio. This is a good one, I’m telling you. Yes, it’s dark and loud and even a little bit ugly as shit but it’s got a logical lurch from garage to punk to whatever the kids are doing these...

Darren Hayman & The Long Parliament -The Violence

Darren Hayman & The Long Parliament -The Violence

Whilst a concept album of folk songs based around 17th century witch hunts may not seem like the typical synopsis for a thoroughly listenable, engrossing record, those familiar with Essex songwriter Darren Hayman should not be surprised. Whether it has been with the John Peel-approved indie-rock outfit Hefner or as...

Watch Thomas Azier’s Angelene Video

Watch Thomas Azier’s Angelene Video

It is no longer 2013 rather 20-27 and the world is not ruled by men and women but armatures of emotions tethered by thin spools of twine and logic. You are not a person rather an idea and we all dance on wet concrete to the thud and clatter of...

Dealer’s Choice – Las Pipas de la Paz / La Luz

Dealer’s Choice – Las Pipas de la Paz / La Luz

So here’s Dealer’s Choice, third edition. Cast red like the blood of our enemies in the holy waters of Lake Minnetonka. But we don’t mean to be mean this week. We’re feeling right as rain down the back of a Chevy going 80 with the lights off on a highway...

Chrome Canyon To Release ELEMENTAL REMIXES

Chrome Canyon To Release ELEMENTAL REMIXES

Holy god. Chrome Canyon’s 2012 release Elemntal Themes was perhaps the one album that was played in constant rotation. Like soundtracks to 80’s films that never existed, this collection of moody synthscapes was an underrated fire gem which burned slowly in the corner of 2012. Stones Throw Records is currently...

Tape Wyrm XXXVIII: Recent Releases

Alright. Show is over. Everyone leave. Fuck. Look at the time. It’s mid-February. Enough being hazy headed from the end of the year, it’s time to stop lollygagging and get back into whatever swing you were in and get going. Go on. Get moving. No more rubbernecking. Back to the...

Tomahawk and Retox @ Great American Music Hall – 2.16.13

Tomahawk and Retox @ Great American Music Hall – 2.16.13

Retox came out with a ferocious energy that was reminiscent of Converge with a splash of Dillinger Escape Plan. The 45 minute opener for Tomahawk was lively and full of action. Lead singer, Justin Pearson, was seen screaming inches away from the faces of audience members and even jumping off...
