Producing and remixing those luscious electro beats, English DJ duo, Simian Mobile Disco is back at it with their second studio album “Temporary Pleasure.” The new album is mellow on the instrumentals and heavy on the catchy vocals featuring an impressive set of vocal collaborations. Talk about an album filled with songs that stick to […]

FYF Fest 2009 Trailer

The intro sounds like the sountrack to either a cheezy ass soap opera or God in an episode of the Simpons, but it’s not! Check out the FYF Fest trailer below and rock out for a good cause. The band montage is pretty sweet and chaotic just like FYF. It all goes down Sept.  5, […]

"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 […]

“Civilized” by Stellastarr*

My eldest brother had gotten me into Stellastarr* a few years back and ever since then I’ve been a fan of their music. There’s just something so feel-good about their sound. Maybe it’s the unique combination of front-man Shawn Christensen’s unique and unusually alluring vocals fused with the soft cute voice of co-vocalist Amanda Tannes. […]

"Bible Belt" by Diane Birch – Album Review

“Bible Belt” by Diane Birch – The daughter of a preacher, this singer-songwriter has quite the lovely voice but I’m just not feeling it. Her debut album “Bible Belt” at times sounds like 80’s soft rock, a sound track for the “Thorn Birds.” I can’t deny that voice though, it’s amazing and she’s very easy […]

“Hombre Lobo” by Eels – Album Review

‘Hombre Lobo” by Eels – Howling like a werewolf with a broken heart, front-man Mark Oliver Everett (aka “E”) and his band put out a stellar seventh album.  Eels’ “Hombre Lobo” is most definitely “12 songs of desire.” I couldn’t help but notice how almost every song is about a woman. I guess us ladies […]
