Surfer Blood – Astro Coast Album Review

Surfer Blood are a weird anomaly: they hail from West Palm Beach, FL, home of Jewish grandparents and all things octogenarian, yet they make refreshingly current indie-rock. The first single from Astro Coast, “Swim,” has been all over the internet, with critics and bloggers gushing — and deservedly so. It is such a fun, catchy...Read...

The Sextons – Self-Titled Album Review

Hailing from the great Midwest, The Sextons have an unfortunate handle on the atmospheric folk genre. They seem to be aiming for the Coldplay market, and in that aspect, they are succeeding. Their songs blend nicely into one large lump, with each indistinguishable from the others — even on repeated listens. We’ll give them a...Read...

The Color Turning – Good Hands Bad Blood Album Review

Rarely has one adjective so adequately described a piece of music more than the word “moody” describes The Color Turning’s debut LP, Good Hands Bad Blood. If you are able to move pass the beginning track, “Slow as Passing Cars,” with appropriately slow meandering guitars lines and minimal, borderline whiney vocals, building into grandiose orchestrations,...Read...

Megafaun – Gather, Form & Fly Album Review

Listening to Megafaun for the first time is like seeing a Disney movie on acid… for the first time. There is so much genre jumping, and so much background noise, it would throw the casual listener for a very large loop. Gather, Form, & Fly is Megafaun’s sophomore release, and their first for Portland’s fledgling...Read...

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. Reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel mixed with modern Jim O’Rourke, or...Read...

Eulogies – Here Anonymous Album Review

Eulogies walk the delicate line between the indie rock and the ever-dreaded “emo” subgenre. Compared often enough to bands like Death Cab for Cutie, Eulogies rarely break out of that mold lyrically. Although the full-length album, Here Anonymous, doesn’t have enough monotony to throw at the bottom of the review pile, Eulogies fail to stand...Read...

Little Brazil – Son Album Review

Anyone familiar with Interpol’s Antics might notice a strange similarity between that and the first few seconds of Little Brazil’s Son. This is actually a compliment, but it all goes downhill from there. If this interviewer was age 16 or below, then Son might be a very formative album for the adolescent years. At this...Read...
