WATERS – Out In The Light

WATERS – Out In The Light

Usually I give great care to the type of typographical choices an artist desires for their moniker. This is crucial in writing witch-house reviews and it will make itself apparent with WATERS. I am not yelling merely just repeating the band name. WATERS is the continuation of indie folk group...

Video: Justice – “On’n’On”

In anticipation of their new album, Justice have released a head-spinning video for the lead track of their new EP “On’N’On”. I’m still drunk for yesterday. So I’m just regurgitating what the PR companies are telling us here at Pinpoint. The EP is out Monday, January 30th, features remixes by...

Goth Trad – New Epoch

Goth Trad – New Epoch

Dubstep, as a genre, has grown tremendously since its beginnings in the early 2000’s. This fact cannot be emphasized enough. The genre, which was originally a combination of already established styles, seems to be hinged on the idea of innovation and evolution. There is no need to become upset regarding...

Video: Rachel Fannan – Welcome to the West Session

Rachel Fannan has been echoing a mezzo mournful, massive romantic sound up and down California’s faults (and beyond) for years now in styles that range from the pyschedelic to the folkish to the poplist to the desert blues-wise balladeering that lives in the beloved tremolo lines of a well-worn road...

Santigold Premieres Video and mp3 – “Big Mouth”

Santigold Premieres Video and mp3 – “Big Mouth”

Santigold has a new song and video from her forthcoming album Master of My Make Believe, which, I can only assume is about masturbation. If you like someone shouting at you while listening to seizure-y robot noises, then this song is for you. I’m not one of those people. However,...

Tin Ear Tuesday – Sans SOPA

Tin Ear Tuesday – Sans SOPA from pinpointmusic on 8tracks. I am not a politician. A diplomat maybe but that’s a far cry slighter than wrapping ideologues up and out for the bull neck frenzy and rarely ever pays. Anyway. Life in the great wild of pixels and wires and...

Video: Chelsea Wolfe On-Set Performing – “Movie Screen”

Incase, the company that probably made your iPhone case, has a web series called Room 205, where musicians and film people collaborate to put together a visual representation for a single track. For the first episode of the new season, seer/director Michael Reich, wizard/editor Forrest Borie, and white witch/set designer...

Video: Kanye West On-Stage in Chicago 1996

It’s hard to believe, in this era of modern media, that new, never-before-seen footage of someone as public and controversial as Kanye West, would surface over 15 years after the fact. I don’t know, I’ve definitely had too much of the Kanye West Kool-Aid. Nevertheless, I think this is...

The White Stripes / The Dead Weather – From The Vault 7″

The White Stripes / The Dead Weather – From The Vault 7″

There is a lot of things going on in that title. I understand. Beyond the star power which inhabits this very title is a story which is more intriguing. That story involves Third Man Records. Third Man Records is an independent label started by Jack White and bases itself in...

Trailer Trash Tracys – Ester

Trailer Trash Tracys – Ester

Able to incorporate the best parts of My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins and Warpaint, Trailer Trash Tracys‘ (from here on TTT) sound can at times sound quite different to anything else around at the moment- which is ironic, given such a list of influences. Female vocals and distortion-mangled guitars are...

Can – Tago Mago (40th Anniversary Edition)

Can – Tago Mago (40th Anniversary Edition)

Do I like Can? Does anybody like Can (who isn’t a MUSICIAN [and even, then])? Sometimes I wonder if even Can likes Can but I’m guessing that depends on when you ask them, what period of their many musical incarnations you’re referring to and whether or not they still think...

Tin Ear Tuesday – Misses Howl

Tin Ear Tuesday – Misses Howl from pinpointmusic on 8tracks. Is it the end of the world yet? Guess not, huh? Oh, wait. Is that this year? Do we all go to some Mesoamerican hell in a few short and otherwise drunken ribald months or is that just some surfer...
