John Vanderslice – Romanian Names Album Review

Upon first listen, it’s not surprising to see how John Vanderslice has achieved acclaim in the indie rock world. He has all necessary ingredients — a soft, sweet voice and well put together instrumentals — of a non-religious Sufjan Stevens, without the concept albums.

Pas Chic Chic – Au Contraire Album Review

The debut LP from Canadian band Pas Chic Chic, Au Contraire, plays around with several of the most typical French music stereotypes. Made up of former members of Godspeed You!

The Oregon Donor – Somethings Album Review

Indie-prog rock has never actually been particularly “cool.” It has never been hip or in style, and it has always attracted a mostly male audience. And you know what makes an indie-prog band even less cool? Naming the first track on your record “3rd Lvl Wizard.” Regardless of what class of nerdy they reside in...Read...
