Thursday 10/25: Jeffrey Lewis at WCL New York “anti-folk” singer (what does that mean anyway?) Jeffrey Lewis is a lyrical genius, whose witty, heartfelt, and frequently sardonic lyrics reveal an artist who is smart, cynical, and searching for answers in a messed-up world. An artist by... Read more

What I’m listening to: Thee Oh Sees

Thursday, September 13, 2012, 10:46 AM
San Fran rockers casually release one of the best rock records of the year I was at a bar the other day, talking with a friend, when he commented on the Death of Rock Music these days—how a good number of our popular bands consist of neon- and tight-pants-wearing, knob-turning, drum-kit-programming...

Spoon + Wolf Parade “supergroup” super rages In general, I’m a big fan of inter-band collaborations. The 2011 Mister Heavenly record (featuring Nick Diamonds of Islands, Honus Honus of Man Man, and Joe Plummer of Modest Mouse) was one of my faves of the year; the 2009 Monsters of... Read more

After Claire Boucher (Grimes) released the one-minute trailer for her forthcoming ‘Gensis’ video this week, the internet was buzzing in anticipation (something that only happens when your at the peak of your internet hype phase). The cryptic clip didn’t reveal much other than Grimes... Read more

What I’m listening to: Work Drugs

Thursday, August 9, 2012, 11:06 AM
