“Rings” by Sean Bones – Album Review

I’m usually not one for reggae. In fact, the closest I ever get to listening to it is some Clash when Strummer was fusing some of his punk tunes with reggae/dub beats. That shit was hot! But every now and then I come across a bit of the genre that tickles my fancy. “Rings” by […]

GrimyGoods’ Top 10 Albums for the First Half of 2009

Damn! Only half-way through the year and so many great musicians have put out some killer albums! It was far too hard just to keep it at five albums, so I had to bump it to 10 and even that was tough. I can’t wait to see what the latter half of 2009 has in […]

Download Jay Reatard’s New Song for FREE!

Jay Reatard’s new song, “Ain’t Gonna Save Me,” is rad! Totally diggin’ this fun song, very 70’s punk/new wave, reminds of something Devo would have played. If all the songs on his new album “Watch Me Fall” are going to be as good as this one, I’m sure Mr. Reatard will soon become the big […]

Black Lips at Glass House in Pomona, Calif. May 2, 2009

Dan Auerbach at the Bowery Ball Room – March 3, 2009 Show Review

What an incredible show! There was copius shots of Jack Daniels, delicious cigarettes, friendly show goers, and (most importantly) kick ass melt your geriatric grandma’s face off motherfuckin’ rock and roll! Those Darlins were a treat of an opener. Their dirty country swagger and rad outfits (ruffly booty shorts)! A fucking fox or lion or […]

KaiserCartel

Check out this dreamy folk band straight out of Brooklyn. KaiserCartel, a sweet indie duo made up of a Courtney Kaiser and Benjamin Cartel. If you separate the two combined last names, that so smoothly make the name of their band, KaiserCartel, you get Kaiser Cartel. I think it reads better and makes them sound […]

Lykee Li

I remember I wrote an article for the Los Angeles Journal about 4 years ago titled, “The Swedish Invasion.” Basically, I expressed how Swedes fuckin’ rock and how in the past few years they’ve received a lot more exposure (The Hives, The Sounds, Sahara Hot Nights, etc.). And of course all those mentioned bands are […]

Myspace magazine – Myspace Weekly?

Are you kidding me? Myspace now has a freaking magazine. What lamos will be writing for that ish? Maybe a bunch of white belt wearing, pomade headed pretty boys and some platinum female tools. I like it as a social network, to stay in touch with my friends, and network for journalistic purposes, but I […]
