Devo – Something for Everybody

Devo – Something for Everybody

It is hard for me to imagine there are people in the world who have never heard a Devo song besides the popular single “Whip It.” I can believe that there are people out there without the slightest bit of interest in New Wave or popular music from the 80’s....

Drive-By Truckers @ HOB San Diego

Drive-By Truckers @ HOB San Diego

How to prepare for a DBT show is pretty straight forward. Grab your best friends, grab some Whiskey, and then don’t plan on anything for three days that requires acute hearing. Popular music is littered with “it bands” that don’t have 60 minutes of material recorded yet. It’s nice to...

Keepaway – Baby Style EP

Keepaway – Baby Style EP

“I think I finally know what I want/ I wanna be two places at once” declares KeepAway vocalist Nick Nauman on the brilliant “Yellow Wings”.  Ironically, this describes Baby Style’s main problem.  First and foremost- these guys are obviously Animal Collective fans. The same psychedelic electronics and wishy washy soundscapes...

Japandroids Exclusive Video – Art Czars

Japandroids Exclusive Video – Art Czars

Japandroids’ debut release Post Nothing daftly negotiated through a lush and expansive soundscape of naivety and hopefulness. The theme of growth, gained while emerging from adolescence, is constant throughout the effort. In thirty five minutes Post Nothing manages to capture the sound of youth, love, beer, and a carefree attitude....

Reflection Eternal – Revolutions Per Minute

Reflection Eternal – Revolutions Per Minute

Reflection Eternal is Talib Kweli and DJ Hi-Tek; and even though Kweli claims that he and Mos Def are the best alliance in hip hop, Reflection Eternal definitely cracks the top 10. So after much hype, several mixtapes and ten years of fan anticipation, Revolutions Per Minute is here. So...

F*ckface (NSFW)

F*ckface (NSFW)

I totally would’ve fucked to this record. I don’t know if that says something about me or about Fuckface (FUCKFACE!) or about the women I’ve known biblically. If there was a time – and there was – when I could eat pussy through a 45 minute, two part dirge wreck...

Useless Keys – Is The Painting Changing

Useless Keys – Is The Painting Changing

I always wondered what hopeless gloom sounded like if that hopeless gloom wore a leather jacket and flicked cigarette butts into the ocean. Los Angele‘s acolytes of despondency, Useless Keys make an admirable debut EP with Is The Painting Changing? The title, no doubt some sort of idiosyncratic inside joke,...

Gogol Bordello – Trans-Continental Hustle

Gogol Bordello – Trans-Continental Hustle

Eugene Hutz, frontman for Gogol Bordello, is still striving to make sure you have not forgotten about him.   With tattered clothes, tattered guitars, tattered and wild hair to go along with tattered band mates, Hutz is seemingly in constant motion.  Motion is a concept he is certainly familiar with, even...
