Wow. How have I not caught on to this stellar band until Wednesday, Nov. 21 at the Henry Fonda Theatre? The XX is a beautiful mixture of sexy, delicate and sensual music — a lil bittersweet and at times arousing. Opening up for Friendly Fires, it was pretty evident that at least half the crowd there […]

Kitsuné Maison 8 – Album Review

Opening the album up with French Horn Rebellion’s “Up All Night,” I thought I was a contestant on some cheesy Japanese game show! Cute-fun song, but a lil too cheesy for me to actually enjoy. It did however, act as the catalyst to blast-off an album full of joyous and sexy tracks that will evoke […]

From track one on “fits,” it’s obvious White Denim isn’t holding back. They are ripping out the stitches and going their own way. Each song boasts new surprises and a continuously morphing sound. As the album progresses, you can’t quite figure out where they are going or what genre they want to be in, but […]

The Bravery Releases New Video for “Sugar Pill”

Well, well, The Bravery … touché! This is one cool video and song, and it’s not too sugar coated on the poppy electro treats either.

“Phosphorescent Blues” by Brazos – Album Review

Just as the cover art for Brazos’ new album is a hodgepodge of watercolor swirls that evoke a whimsical feeling, the sounds captured within are just as lively, assorted and satisfying. The album starts measured and sweet building slowly with fervor and intense hypnotic qualities. Once you start listening, you become enraptured with the multiple […]
