Contest: Win Tickets to Hanni El Khatib with Vanaprasta at the Echo

CONTEST CLOSED You know, I’m really bummed I didn’t have any photogs or writers available to cover this show because Hanni El Khatib is just straight up rad and someone you should keep a close eye on in 2011. If I wasn’t battling this horrible winter cold you best believe I’d be there in a […]

Hot New Music: “Riposte” by Buke and Gass – Album Review

Quirky and unusual are two words to describe the duo of Buke and Gass. Their name alone is enough to slap them with such labels (though the pronunciation of “byook” and “gace” helps curb thoughts of bodily functions… a little.) Yet, they become a whole lot more fascinating when you discover the basis for the […]

“Love & The Sweet Divine” by Solaram – Album Review

Time travel, that’s what I feel when first hitting play on “Love & The Sweet Divine,” the debut full length album by Solaram. The first track “When She Falls” is a mix of Spacemen 3 memories and the vocal sweetness of The Beatles created through basic lyrics about love (shocking for songwriters I know) a […]

Hot Band Alert: “Silver” by Eternal Summers – Debut Album Review

I have one word for this album: hypnotic. Your experienced music mind might think I’m talking about trippy psychedelic sounds but that is not the case with Eternal Summers’ debut full-length album “Silver.” Some how this duo’s creations make me feel hypnotized with their poppy upbeat tunes. After hitting play I don’t want to write […]

Hot Band Alert: “Ghost Fits” by Sisters – Debut Album Review

Neither brothers nor sisters, this Brooklyn duo creates rollicking, lazy-boned laments about days gone by. Once opener “The Curse” rattles to attention with rickety alternative-era guitars and youthful drum pats, the peg is as dead on as their Death By Audio ancestry. Core members of the collective that fostered a Brooklyn venue, effects pedal creations […]

Hot Band Alert: “Pink Graffiti” by Secret Cities – Album Review

When terms like “dream pop” get thrown around, usually it draws the mind to synth-y airy music that still has a catchiness about it. Layered and elaborate this pop can often get so swept up in experimentation and its own psychedelic haze that it becomes mundane without some hallucinogenic drug trance on the listener. Yet, […]
