King Khan & BBQ Goes to Jail! Drugs, Madness and More!

Is it bad that I kinda thought this news was pretty cool? I dunno, it’s just so damn old-school rockstar steez. Have you seen a King Khan & BBQ Show? These guys tear it up in the wildest, dirtiest garge manner. Apparently the band was arrested yesterday in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. The tour manager remains in […]

“Houseboat” by Sleep Whale – Album Review

From the moment the “Houseboat” starts, you know you are going on a journey. These North Texans will take you on a trip through ambient swirls and electronic twirls amidst gentle tinkering strings and echoed vocals. This is not your usual good ol’ boys from the South. Experimental and mostly instrumental, Sleep Whale’s debut is […]

“Belly of the Lion” by Ola Podrida (Film Score Composer, David Wingo) – Album Review

When thinking of film scores, bold, dramatic instrumental tracks that pack punch and presence come to mind. You think John Williams’s “Star Wars” or Hans Zimmer and “The Lion King.” Likely a musician whose album is drawing comparisons to Iron and Wine and Bon Iver wouldn’t be thought of in the same category as the […]

When I received word that Brookville was playing the Troubadour with Tahiti 80 on Thursday, Nov. 5 I was super bummed I was gonna miss their show. I had caught Brookville not to long ago at Spaceland with the Postmarks and totally fell in love with their smooth-rockin’ ways. Needless to say our fearless and […]

Morrissey Gets Popped in the Head With a Drink! Video!

When I was at the Download Festival ’06 in Donington England I could not understand the stupidity or lameness behind the locals throwing bottles of piss at the bands their supposedly a fan of. As bottles of piss were dripping over our heads and onto Guns n’ Roses taking the stage before us, Axl just […]

“Luna” by The Aliens – Album Review

I’m spiraling on a sound-wave of musicianship with a harmonica on my way through a gliding rock tune called “Bobby’s Song.” This 10-minute musical track is broken down into various branches of stylistic blends from the 60s past with touches of modern wonder. By the 3rd minute it breaks down to a mystical flute/pipe tune […]
