LISTEN! to the Swooning Tar Beach Beat of Heat Dust’s “Seeking a Praxis”

Back in the days of purple streaks and bitter, bitter New England winters when I was just a pale boy with some dumb scars and a script that would level out Mark E. Smith I was nothing short of a full-blown goth. Hmmmm. Maybe not. It wasn’t until college that...

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: St. Paul & The Broken Bones

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: St. Paul & The Broken Bones

I really wanted to talk about Benjamin Booker here, but between the nearly untouchable spotlight we did for Governor’s Ball and the complete mind-fucking I had discovering St. Paul & The Broken Bones, there was no way I could not write about this seven piece from Birmingham, thrusting itself into...

LISTEN! to the Hallowed, Hopeless Death Stomp of Wolf Eyes’ “Enemy Ladder”

LISTEN! to the Hallowed, Hopeless Death Stomp of Wolf Eyes’ “Enemy Ladder”

I fucking love Wolf Eyes. Love ’em. Love ’em. Love ’em. Even though (or maybe because) they drive me out of my hopeless skull and straight into some no future fuck beast that’s all wet hair and teeth any and every time I’ve ever indulged in their Trip Metal/Trap Mental/Trope...

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: WATERS

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: WATERS

We were first introduced to WATERS a few years back as the promising rock & roll remake of the sometimes overlooked indie band Port O’Brien. I’ll admit that Port O’Brien hit my radar mostly because I have a good buddy named Pat O’Brien, and yeah, thats how the brain works,...

Offspring – The Palladium – 7-31-15

Photos by Ben Ed. Note: It’s been a minute since I’ve listened to The Offspring and it’s been a few minutes more since I last saw them deliver their firebrand punk revivalist sermon to a packed house at Irving Plaza (alongside Guttermouth, The Lunachicks and Uncle Joe’s Big Ol’ Driver)...

The Sediment Club – Psychosymplastic

The Sediment Club – Psychosymplastic

I’m afraid of supervolcanoes. Like, totally and irreconcilably shaking up all night terrified, tracing the shades in my ceiling by the dim green aura of an AM radio light until I finally pass out in a pool of sweat to the taste of tin and crumbling fillings sometime just shy...

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: Glass Animals

I’ll be the first one to admit that electronic music is not my thing. No matter what flavor it comes in, I usually don’t find myself vibing or grooving or whatever it is that I’m supposed to be doing. When I’m at a bar, on a stoop or in the...
