Wax Idols – Discipline & Desire

Wax Idols – Discipline & Desire

I’ve been drinking a lot of NyQuil lately. I’m not happy about it, but what can I do? There comes a time when a man needs to sleep and sometimes that sleep doesn’t seem to come so easy and when it does, it rarely stays so he takes the measures...

Stream Daughn Gibson’s New Single “You Don’t Fade”

Stream Daughn Gibson’s New Single “You Don’t Fade”

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that we, at Pinpoint, are afraid of our brooding bloom of affection for Daughn Gibson but we’ve been edging closer and closer ever since we listed his All Hell as one of our Top 25 Records of 2012 and now that we’ve...

Daft Punk – Random Access Memories

Daft Punk – Random Access Memories

I feel everyone is waiting for this record. I find this interesting because I cannot think of the last time everyone was anticipating the same album. Maybe Radiohead. Daft Punk is a French house duo who have become planted within our cultural bedrock for only a handful of records which...

Tape Wyrm XLIV: Recent Releases

Tape Wyrm XLIV: Recent Releases

Concerning Ghost Alright, before we begin. I feel strange putting Ghost in an introduction when I can just as easily talk about it in a regular section. I feel this occult rock group is somehow not as new or not as recommendation worthy as the other selections. I find this...

The Icarus Line Ready Slave Vows

The Icarus Line Ready Slave Vows

There was a time not so long ago when The Icarus Line were primed to be the long pig savages of rock and roll. The good kind. The kind you could get high, fucked or killed to. The kind that screamed anarchy and fear in a shrill bombast of revolution...

Only You @ Bootleg 5-16-13

Only You Photos by Ben Irwin To hear Rachel Fannan sing is to have been captivated by her. My first such experience was down at the Casbah in San Diego circa 2010 when Fannan was singing with psych-rock band Sleepy Sun. Our encounter that evening was brief, but that performance...

Riot Fest Announces Lineup, Wins Chicago Festival War

All right, lord knows that we were stoked about the FYF Fest lineup that we posted yesterday but this morning we got wind of what the good punk gluttons at Riot Fest (whose Philly incarnation we covered back in 2011) have in store for the kids of Chicago (and those...

FYF Fest Announce Lineup, Dates, Awesomeness

FYF Fest Announce Lineup, Dates, Awesomeness

Yeah. So the (now) legendary FYF Fest is coming into its tenth year of face melting, body rocking, sweat hogging celebrate good times, COME ON! and in order to honor themselves most appropriately, they have put together a reasonably ridiculous lineup for their (not so) little shindig going down on...

The Night Marchers @ The Satellite – 2.22.13

Photos By Ben Irwin // Words By Aaron Lavine If you’re going to buy John Reis (aka Swami/Speedo/Slasher) a beer, and you’re going to want to because he gets pretty fucking sweaty up on that stage, you better leave the cap on. One of Reis’s hard-learned lessons from the road...

Watch Merchandise’s New Short Film “Rush of Blood”

Watch Merchandise’s New Short Film “Rush of Blood”

So, of course, I missed the Merchandise NYC gigs this weekend because it appears to be my lot in life to never see this fucking band live no matter how many times they play within a few skips of my zip code but, at least, this time I had an...

The Besnard Lakes – Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO

The Besnard Lakes, coming from the musical capitol of Montreal, have secured a place in my portable devices, since I first had the opportunity to give them a try. I must admit that I somewhat ignored their debut, Volume I but have anticipated every single one of their releases since...

Happy Hollows Announce Sophomore Album, Amethyst

We really like the Happy Hollows here at Pinpoint. Like, really, really, REALLY friggin’ just adore the living hell out of them. We gave their first record, Spells a glowing review. We shot the band at The Troubador and The Satellite. We even helped put on a five buck show...
