“The Soft Pack” by The Soft Pack – Album Review

After first listen to The Soft Pack’s full-length debut, I had to double-check the release date. While they are a little late for the last garage rock movement with the likes of The Strokes and The Hives and are very late to be a part of 1960s surf-rock scene, they give a big ol’ tip […]

“Astro Coast” by Surfer Blood – Album Review

I got a good listen to Surfer Blood’s “Astro Coast” and I have to tell you it’s a smooth composite of indie rock elements with great lyrical content and melodic moments. “Catholic Pagans” begins with a familiar guitar melody from April Steven’s “Teach Me Tiger.” It then redirects to a smooth multi- guitar arrangement into […]

“Odd Blood” by Yeasayer – Album Review

For the most part, they make you wanna dance, bust out your Casio, pull on your American Apparel leggings and rock like it’s 1987… or Silverlake this Saturday night. Yeasayer amps up the pop factor and 80s influence of their latest album, “Odd Blood.” The band gets a little hipster friendly by combining synth pop […]

“Freedom Tower” by Masterface – Album Review

Electronic layers and vocoded vocals peppered in with some dub and ambient elements lend the debut EP by Masterface a subtle charm. Producer Cedar Apffel and engineer Rory O’Connor from Natureboy rally their electro skills for “Freedom Tower.” Relying on their ability to create textures of electronic sound, Masterface turns out tracks that will lull […]

“End Times” by Eels – Album Review

Eels’ last album “Hombre Lobo” (12 Songs of Desire) had me by the fuckin’ titts! Howling like a werewolf with a broken heart, front-man Mark Oliver Everett (aka “E”) and his band put out a stellar seventh album.  So what does Eels’ eighth studio album “End Times” have in store for us? It’s pretty damm […]

“Heartland” by Owen Pallett (Formerly Final Fantasy) – Album Review

Complexity and a bit of confusion surround the album “Heartland.” Owen Pallett is the mastermind behind the electronic and multi-instrument infused disc that is his last under the Final Fantasy name to avoid confusion with the video games of the same moniker. His style is definitely hard to pin point and doesn’t quite fit in […]
