“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 […]

“Kitsune Maison 7” by Various Artists – Album Review

“Kitsune Maison 7” by Various Artists– The latest compilation from the French techno label features remixes of Phoenix, Autokratz, La Roux, and more. I love listening to music in different languages, especially when it doesn’t come off as some joke for pure amusement. Naturally I love track three, a remix of Phoenix’s “Lisztomania” (CLASSIXX Version). […]

“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 […]
