“Idol Omen” by Glass Ghost – Album Review

Now this is some straight up chill music. Check out this awesomely creepy Brooklyn duo Glass Ghost. As I listened to their debut album “Idol Omen,” at times it felt like the soundtrack to a dark fairytale with its growing  influx of pounding drums and magical chimes.

“In & Out of Control” by Raveonettes – Album Review

I always remember the Danish mod-rockers, The Raveonettes, as a dark, electro rock duo. Known for their ambient landscapes and sexy lo-fi stylings, it looks like the sun ventured where it usually doesn’t shine on their new ablum “In & Out of Control.” Opening up with a fun and bubbly track, “Bang” sets the tone […]

“Psychic Chasms” by Neon Indian

Whoa! For a few seconds there I thought I was back in the 80’s playing some Space Invaders or Asteroids. With their intro track (AM), it’s clear that Neon Indian likes to play with the whole galactic beats. You’ll hear some spacey sound effects and cheesy rhythms through out the whole album. If you’re all […]

A year and a half after releasing the acclaimed “Alopecia” LP, WHY? returns with their fourth album, “Eskimo Snow.” You won’t have any trouble making out Yoni Wolf’s honest lyrics in “Eskimo Snow.” With a sincere and at times detached voice, Wolf’s words roll off his tongue in an inviting manner where you just can’t […]
