SXSW 2012 Announces Comedy Lineup

SXSW 2012 Announces Comedy Lineup

This is very exciting news for us over here at Pinpoint. Although I saw Aziz Ansari out on the streets last year and got halfway “whats up” when I said I was a ‘big fan’ in a very non-fanboy fashion; we didn’t get much of a chance to check out...

Freeball Friday! Big and Beautiful

Yacht – “Shangri-La” YACHT – Shangri-La from Jona Bechtolt on Vimeo. Everything in my DNA is opposed to the statement “If I can’t go to heaven, let me go to LA”. But I suppose the song is nice enough. However, according to YACHT, a utopian Los Angeles is void of...

The Maccabees – Given to the Wild

The Maccabees – Given to the Wild

I’ts been a while since I’ve been on this bus. A little high on cold meds, one too many of those back-of-the-counter Claritin D pills Ben told me to take, just waiting for a spot to open. That must be a metaphor, for something. I think. A fantastic blend of...

Pulled Apart By Horses – Tough Love

Pulled Apart By Horses – Tough Love

Behold! A glam trash riot. Is that a thing we should be celebrating? Fuck it. I’m drunk and it fucking well ought to be. When I first heard Pulled Apart by Horses it was at the behest of Chelsea Piers (of the, sadly, defunct Gay for Johnny Depp with whom...

Tape Wyrm XVII – Ten Recent Recommendations

Tape Wyrm XVII – Ten Recent Recommendations

Recent Recommendations I remember when first broaching to our editor Ben the subject of Tape Wyrm. We were hiking in the shadow of the Kangchenjunga during our yearly pilgrimage to the India-Nepal border. I recall looking up at the Five Treasures of Snow and mentioning that Pinpoint should have a...

Lana Del Rey – Born to Die

Lana Del Rey – Born to Die

Born To Die is a more than satisfactory pop album. The title track opens the album with a fluttering of violins, akin to a black-and-white romance movie from the 1940s. Those strings are heard throughout the album, as they continuously and successfully whisk us into our heroine’s fairy tale world:...

Video: UNKLE – “Another Night Out”

UNKLE – ANOTHER NIGHT OUT dir: Toby Dye from Black Dog Films on Vimeo. When you’ve been making music as long as UNKLE has, you get a free pass on being close to two years late with the video for the single from your 2010 album Where Did the Night...

Die Antwoord – Ten$ion

Die Antwoord – Ten$ion

Die Antwoord is a very visual band. Since their 2010 unearthing, this South African quasi ironic rap group has been hinged on the visual accompaniment to their music. Die Artwoord’s style is an artful blend of low culture, folk elements and batshit crazy occultism which intends to entertain as much...
