“Watch Me Fall” by Jay Reatard – Album Review

Jay Reatard is probably one of the coolest things to come out of Memphis. With his latest album “Watch Me Fall” set to drop on Aug. 18, this kinetic garage rocker is also packing heat with yet another tight tour schedule that kicks off Aug. 14. Except for this tour lasts three crazy months! With […]

"Science and Sorcery" by Wolf & Cub – Album Review

The Aussies are just coming in hot. Last week we reviewed St. Helen’s awesome album “Heavy Profession,” and now Wolf & Cub is stimulating our aural appendages with some more kick-ass Australian sound. Coming through with a proper follow up to their psychedelic debut “Vessels,” their new goods “Science and Sorcery” delivers a cosmic soundscape […]

"City Boy Lemon" by Hotel St. George – Album Review

Formerly a San Diegan, I gotta have love for the awesome music that pumps out of the good ole whale’s vagina. Not only cause they fuckin’ rock, but it’s coming from a kick-ass city. With leading bands that have made waves on the indie radar such as The Soft Pack (formerly the Muslims), Grand Ole […]

"I Love You" by Amanda Blank – Album Review

Peaches, Lady Sovereign, M.I.A., Santigold, and now Amanda Blank. Love the aforementioned, sans Lady Sovereign, but really, the whole electro-rap-songstress approach has been used and abused. A little too late to hop on the bandwagon for Blank and her debut album “I Love You.” Although she has big names like Diplo and Santigold pulling some […]

"Heavy Profession" by St Helens – Album Review

I must say, I have experienced quite the Aussie summer thus so far. I’ve had three Australian friends in town the past couple months and one is practically living with me! Them Aussies sure can rock and are heaps of fun! With that said, I was super surprised and stoked when I read that St. […]

“The Wheel” by Andrew Vladeck – Album Review

With the release of his new album “The Wheel,” Andrew Vladeck reminds me a bit of Bob Dylan with a dash of Elvis Costello. Not just in the sound and style of his music, but in the way his very real lyrics tell a story. With similar traits of some of the greatest American folk […]

“Rings” by Sean Bones – Album Review

I’m usually not one for reggae. In fact, the closest I ever get to listening to it is some Clash when Strummer was fusing some of his punk tunes with reggae/dub beats. That shit was hot! But every now and then I come across a bit of the genre that tickles my fancy. “Rings” by […]

“Horehound” by The Dead Weather – Album Review

So much hype over The Dead Weather and their new album “Horehound.” After listening to the album in all its entirety (many times), they have definitely lived up to all the hype and speculation of being the shit! With eleven tracks of shear radness, “Horehound” is killer! Whoever does their mass marketing can take it […]

“LP” by Discovery – Album Review

Looks like Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and Ra Ra Riot’s Wes Miles are trying to get all gangsta with their new experiment, Discovery! Uh, yeah I don’t like this album of theirs called “LP” (no wonder it was $3.99 yesterday on Amazon mp3). Listening to the first track “Orange Shirt”, I thought some rapper/R&B superstar […]
