Shellac – Dude Incredible

Shellac – Dude Incredible

Ed. Note: Charles wrote this review in some weird pandemic freakout we’re not the least bit interested in exploring and which we are publishing here, adulterated, for prosperity because we’re all pretty confident the end is not nigh but we can all agree Shellac fucking nailed it on this one....

Modern Sky Festival NYC FULL ON Preview!

Modern Sky Festival NYC FULL ON Preview!

To be honest, the only reason I had any interest in the Modern Sky Festival was because it heralds the NYC return of The Blood Brothers after eight long and lonely years in a simpering musical tundra (see below for fawning bellows) but the more I consider this new crank...

Delta Spirit – Granada – Dallas TX

Delta Spirit – Granada – Dallas TX

Photos by Sean Berry Photography Ed. Note: There’s more arena pop and electric yawp to this band than I expected. Did I miss something? I must have. Or is the old SoCal sugar-sweet sun pulling a fast one over the concrete cowpoke? It doesn’t matter one iota, I suppose as...

Death from Above 1979 – The Physical World

Death from Above 1979 – The Physical World

So, I’ve been talking a lot of shit about how bands like Buckcherry and Counting Crows and Murder City Devils have new records out on account of the world being lousy with bands right now, many of whom are actually worth your dime and attention, being hosed out by also-rans,...

FYF 2014 – A Photographic Retrospective

“Wow them in the end, and you got a hit. You can have flaws, problems, but wow them in the end, and you’ve got a hit.” Maybe quoting the movie Adaptation doesn’t seem particularly relevant to a retrospective on the 2014 version of FYF, but ask anyone who was there...

Die!Die!Die! – S W I M

Die!Die!Die! – S W I M

When I first heard Die! Die! Die! railing by the docks on a dingy summer someday evening with my lady friend and an overpriced big boy Dixie cup of Kelso, I thought for certain they would soon be riding high the crest of agitated American postpunk malfeasance to be the...

Future Islands @ The Fonda – 8.22.14

Ed. Note: I like Rocket from the Crypt and, back in the days when they were still cranking out the grease rock megaphones, I’d dare say I fucking loved them. I saw them thirteen times, give or take, during my ten-year tenure in Speedo’s Army. Mostly, the gigs were in...
