Album Review by  Ziv Biton Thirty seconds into Joshua Worden’s newest release, Into Fog, it is clear that this is a far more electronic affair than his previous output. A sped up hi-hat clips at Trap speed and bursts of synths sprinkle the mix like auditory fireworks. It sounds like a starry night sky blinking a […]

Cherry Glazerr release new single inspired by literary villain — stream Nurse Ratched

Cherry Glazerr were just a few kids writing songs about grilled cheese and cats. That is, until they caught the attention of St. Laurent designer (and Kanye Rant topic) Hedi Slimane at Burgerama 2013. Which just goes to show that you never know who’s watching. Since then their guitar-smashing anthem (and Slimane commissioned) “Had Ten […]

An Interview with POND: the enormity of outerspace, whiskey and jokes

You wouldn’t be able to tell that POND considers their band a tongue-in-cheek affair if you just listened to their music. Throughout their six-year run they have made some of the hardest hitting psych-rock to come out of Australia.

An Interview with Courtney Barnett: Books, Tomatoes and Life On The Road

Courtney Barnett has been on tour for the better part of the last two years. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that when I get in touch with her over Skype she sounds relieved to be back home in Australia. “It’s so good to be back and seeing everyone.” she tells me, “it’s been awhile.” […]

Conor Oberst and John Prine at Greek Theatre: modern day meets the old days

If you were in high school anywhere from 2000 to 2008 you may have found Conor Oberst’s music to be of a kindred spirit. The angst ridden ballads of “lovers tied together” or the crushing too-close-for-comfort of “It’s Cool We Can Still Be Friends” may have tore out your heart strings. (Seriously, the latter is […]

Bob Mould At The Roxy: Teaching The Kids How It’s Done

Bob Mould The Sunset Strip has long been a strange relic to me. Enormously influential in its heyday, religiously mythologized in its present, yet seemingly unrelated to any scene in the last 20 years.
