“Voltaic” by Bjork – Album Review

Bjork’s new album, “Voltaic” off Nonesuch was played non-stop on my iPod the past couple days. Filled with an awesome mix of eclectic beats and soundscapes, Bjork holds true to her avant-garde style for which we all know her for. Sifting you through different moods and emotions through out her strong, expressive vocals, you won’t […]

“Ciao!” by Tiga – Album Review

“Ciao!” by Tiga – oh yeeeeah, now that’s what I’m sayin’! This shit takes me back to my high school rave days when Electric Daisy and Juju Beats were all the craze (Does that shit still go on?)! This kick ass Montreal DJ we know as Tiga, releases his second album with the help of […]

“Transmitter Failure” by Jenny Owen Youngs – Album Review

“Transmitter Failure” by Jenny Owen Youngs – Do all Jenny’s have the same sweet voice? I totally dig Jenny Owen Youngs’ voice and the entire “Transmitter Failure” album. Definitely a chick album, but I’m sure you men that are secure enough to listen to and recognize good music would enjoy her delectable voice and words. […]

“Solid Bond” by CIV Album Review

“Solid Bond” by CIV – Need something hard, fast and loud that takes you back to the days when punk was a blur and not some candy coated pop tart? Well it’s not quite Max Fish and CBGB’s blurry, but for circa 95′ CIV was still one of the most legit punk bands out there […]

“Demonstration EP” by The Honey Brothers – Album Review

I’m usually not down for the “actor turned musician” thing, but in some cases it does tend to work (definitely not with Scarlett Johansson). Check this sweet new band out: The Honey Brothers features “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier on drums! Their new goods titled “Demonstration EP,” has a fun vibe to it with a ukulele […]

Gossip – “Music for Men” Album Review

Hot damn! Looks like the Gossip teamed up with acclaimed producer Rick Rubin for their fourth album “Music For Men.” The album exudes a fun mix of discos beats, not too heavy on the electro, with a healthy punk presence. If “Fame” were to be brought back to the big screen (which I think it […]

“Bitte Orca” by The Dirty Projectors

Brooklyn indie band, The Dirty Projectors has been creating a hott buzz in the indie music circuit. Their new album “Bitte Orca” is quite the experimental feat led by Dave Longstreth. The album explodes a plethora of unique sounds and genres fit to deliver an outstanding album. It’s like a working combo of R&B and […]

“Secret, Profane & Sugarcane” by Elvis Costello – Album Review

Elvis Costello teams up with buddy T-Bone Burnett on his first release for the Starbucks music label (yes you read correctly). “Secret, Profane & Sugarcane” is uh, a bit Starbucksy, which isn’t a bad thing (in terms of music). With the two being amazing singer/song writers/guitarists the album has great lyrics as expected. It has […]

“Crossing The Rubicon” by The Sounds – Album Review

It’s their third album! With a huge venue tour opening for No Doubt and judging by the sounds of this album, they’re gearing up for that TRL appearance. Sorry, not trying to be a negative Nancy here, but again I find myself not too impressed with another album today. It’s a bit more slow—less rock […]

“Preliminaires” by Iggy Pop Album Review

“Preliminaires” by Iggy Pop – It’s funny to hear this crazy godfather of punk go slow-mo, sounds like a bad heroin overdose. Naw, but really, Iggy and The Stooges have always been one of my favorite bands, much respect to Iggy, but I’m not too keen on this album. I like “Je sais que tu […]
