Song Premiere: Dorothy Knows That Flawless is a Process

In 2013, “flawless” was more than a synonym for perfection. Thanks to Beyonce’s single, it became an overtly feminist affirmation, one that prioritized self-confidence over meeting expectations.

Song Premiere: Listen to The Perfumes’ new track “California”

Short and sweet, yet it has the powerful ability to get stuck in your head with its dreamy chorus. The Perfumes’ new song “California” is a bittersweet farewell to sunny California. As the latest project of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Moxcey, the sullen song comes from Moxcey’s abundant, yet seldom shared collection of home recordings. […]

Dinosaur Jr. blends guitar shredding, beautiful melodies in memorable FYF Fest set

I had been hoping to see noise rockers Dinosaur Jr. for quite some time. Saturday’s performance at FYF Fest had me kicking myself for not crossing it off the list sooner, as the wizard-looking J Mascis led the charge in a high-energy set. Mascis’ vocals are hard to pinpoint. They’re somewhere in between a grittier Jeff […]

Recommended New Album: The Pack A.D. — Do Not Engage

Vancouver rock duo, The Pack AD, is comprised of singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller, two ladies who know how to rock hard. Their new album, Do Not Engage just hit the streets yesterday via Nettwerk Records. Hmm … that’s a curious title, considering that it’s nearly impossible not to engage in these eleven, stirring, alt-indie-grunge […]
