Cage the Elephant – Thank You Happy Birthday

Cage the Elephant – Thank You Happy Birthday

Fuck it. Let’s go for the good. “Japanese Buffalo” is my jam. It’s fast. It’s YEOW! It’s romp and stomping “uh-huh” and some “crazy things you do” and I don’t really know all what else because I haven’t read liner notes in five years. But if I can scream something...

Tim Kasher – The Game of Monogamy

Tim Kasher – The Game of Monogamy

Tim Kasher’s latest is his first under his own name, and while it’s is strangely ambitious, don’t expect anything out of the ordinary from the Cursive front man. Musically, this is less downtrodden than perhaps any of Kasher’s catalog — that may not be saying much — but lyrically, The...

Video: New Mexico – Abused And Amused

The newiest (new-ee-ist) New Mexico video from our New York sessions is “Abused And Amused ” . Why New Mexico? Because they are slightly safer than regular Mexico. Check out the first two videos from the New Mexico NYC sessions here. Download the MP3 for New Mexico’s “Abused And Amused”...

The Men – Immaculada

The Men – Immaculada

All right, I’m late to this review. I got a little soft on the push and so I sort of forget this record existed which is a goddamn shame because it’s already almost sold out of it’s second pressing (still in 2010 so I shouldn’t cut my tit off) but...

Tennis – Cape Dory

Tennis – Cape Dory

Surely by now there has to be at least a blueprint for instant sub mainstream success. Some of the qualifications could include heavy nods to old music, discovery by blogs and other venerable websites and most importantly — an interesting back story. Tennis is a duo who has steady gained...

Coachella 2011 Lineup Rumors

This is all probably bullshit and a far cry from what will actually go down when the time comes; but, here’s an announced potential Coachella lineup. Gwyneth Paltrow? Really?...

Shit Robot – From the Cradle to The Rave

Shit Robot – From the Cradle to The Rave

Shit Robot is 39 year old Marcus Lambkin – an Irish born DJ whose move to New York in the 1990’s signaled his complete immersion in everything disco. Closely aligned with James Murphy a.k.a. Mr. LCD Soundsystem, Lambkin is one of the behind the scenes lynchpins of DFA. It’s surprising...

Christopher Wallace aka Notorious B.I.G. Murder Case Getting Attention Again

Christopher Wallace aka Notorious B.I.G. Murder Case Getting Attention Again

I guess they solved all the crimes in Los Angeles, because that would be the only explanation why the LAPD gives a shit again about solving the murder of Christoper Wallace, also known as Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls. Or, more likely; CNN is trying to reachout to their 18-35, African-American...

Tron Legacy Soundtrack – Daft Punk

Tron Legacy Soundtrack – Daft Punk

It is not everyday when a film’s soundtrack is as popular as the movie itself. There have been examples in the past: Goblin/Suspiria (1977) Simon & Garfunkel / The Graduate (1968) Curtis Mayfeild/Superfly (1972) Autograph/Fright Night (1985) but few in recent memory. In fact, another example of a soundtrack on...

Big L – Return of the Devils Son

Big L – Return of the Devils Son

Big L is your favorite MC’s favorite MC. Of course, I don’t know that, but I know it. Even if he isn’t, he just is. He’s a motherfucking paradox wrapped in an enigma. His unrefined style is so brazenly thrown in your face you can’t possibly doubt his authenticity and...
