Album Preview: Damien Rice’s “My Favourite Faded Fantasy” gets the Rick Rubin treatment

Something as powerful and emotionally taxing as Damien Rice’s first new material in eight years shouldn’t be something that you can access via Spotify. It just feels wrong. Don’t get me wrong, I love Spotify. It is one of the only unnecessary bills I pay monthly. But Rice’s single “I Don’t Want to Change You” […]

Recommended: Merchandise’s new album “After the End” is a blast to 80s alt rock

One of the interesting things about bands these days are their infinite ways to be cool or unique.  You can make sounds that have never been heard before. You can write a really simple song or give songs really ornate arrangements. Or you can give provocative interviews and have a new fresh take on music […]

Thundercat takes FYF Fest on a bass-filled adventure

Los Angeles-based bass guitar extraordinaire, Thundercat’s FYF Fest set was filled with incredible solos on Sunday later afternoon, but the former Suicidal Tendencies member showed there is much, much more to him than the metal stylings of his former band. Stephen Bruner lived up to the Thundercat moniker, donning a sweet fur animal hat of sorts […]

Recommended: Spoon’s new album “They Want My Soul” is a refreshing return to form

Feature by Ziv Biton Curiosity is a funny thing in the modern age. Anything you are wondering about is probably being wondered about somewhere else, and just by reaching in your pocket you can silence the questions. On one such occasion, I was searching Google for information on Spoon’s newest album, They Want My Soul.  Not surprisingly, […]

Hot Band Alert: Ex Hex — Mary Timony’s new power trio is about to let it “Rips”

Feature by Ziv Biton Mary Timony of Ex Hex has no first gear. Or, if she did, she revved up to 4th (and probably 5th) a while ago and has since busted the clutch. Listing off her prolific career arc is daunting; even if you started right now you would be hard pressed to accomplish […]
