Datarock “California” EP — Album Review

Red jumpsuits…check. Party-rocking tunes…check. Music that only comes from Datarock…oh YEAH! So you probably already heard about the band’s Catcher In The Rye EP, which is the “most extravagant single in history” by the same title…but they’ve also included a special bonus and secret EP titled California. Don’t you just LOVE surprises…we do! The five-track […]

Superhumanoids “Parasite Paradise” EP — Album Review

From the great City of Angels comes the Superhumanoids, a band that creates “music to help kiss the doldrums away”… as so their Facebook fan page says. Comprised of two members from the punk-based The Franks, Sarah Chernoff and Cameron Parkins, with the addition of Max St. John and Evan Weinerman, the Superhumanoids have released […]

Wye Oak “Civilian” — Album Review

It’s ironic how the most devastating times in life can inspire the most beautiful art. In the case of Wye Oak comprised of Andy Stack (Drums and guitar) and Jen Wasner (singer and guitars), Civilian is their beautiful tragedy, or really Jen’s. Writing the songs during the summer of 2010 during a difficult time in […]

Telekinesis “12 Desperate Straight Lines” — Album Review

Telekinesis at the Echo – Photo by Ivette Orenos for Grimy Goods Telekinesis is very far from past grunge acts that have come out of Seattle, WA. Instead, Michael Benjamin Lerner, the man behind Telekinesis, is providing the city with a new sound…some popish indie rock that’ll put a smile on any hipster face! As […]

Living Things “Malocchio” Mixtape — Album Review

I’m not sure if there is anything better than free music! Not only does it allow you find new, cool bands, but it also beefs up your iTunes. Hailing from St. Louis, the four-piece band Living Things released their free seven-track mixtape the day after they announced their four-week residency at the Satellite for the […]

Early Winters “Early Winters” EP — Album Review

Made up of U.K.-bred singer Carina Round, Canadian artist Justin Rutledge, L.A. producer/musician Dan Burns and Zac Rae of the band Pedestrian, Early Winters’ self-titled five-track EP is made up of tunes that provide movies with the great background music for its most sentimental or epic moments. Or least that’s what I thought as I […]

Beans “End It All” — Album Review

As a true hip-hop head who misses the slick rhyme styles from the ’90s instead of this fluffy, fake sh*t that has attacked the airwaves and infiltrated our ears, I’m always excited to hear fresh albums from MCs who haven’t sacrificed their craft for the sake of gold chains. With that said, Beans’ latest LP, […]

Julianna Barwick “The Magic Place” — Album Review

As more of a dance, electro and indie fan, Julianna Barwick was my first introduction to experimental a cappella music. Her latest release, The Magic Place is something absolutely unreal and of angelic graces reminiscent to a female version of Gregorian chants. Her nine-track LP provides a sense of celestial magic, and can definitely help […]

Porcelain Raft “Gone Blind” EP — Album Review

Gone Blind is a four-track EP that leaves you wanting more…more of the beautifully melodic tracks composed by Mauro Remiddi, the mastermind behind Porcelain Raft. With an already interesting background (he was scoring Italian short films at the age of 20, to reinterpreting classic songs and national anthems at a North Korean festival, to forming […]
