Fat White Family – Champagne Holocaust Album Review & Artistic Philosophy Q&A

Fat White Family Champagne Holocaust Trashmouth Records My first listen of Fat White Family’s debut, Champagne Holocaust, left me thinking of notorious criminal Charles Manson. No sense emerged from this until my thoughts turned to the stark contrast, chasm even, between the monstrousness of Manson and the majesty of his music: deranged yet lucid, at...Read...

The Lawsuits – Darleen Album Review

The Lawsuits hail from Doylestown Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It is home to the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, and affords one the chance to pursue interests in farms, vineyards and tree farms.

Aaron Martin – Worried About The Fire Album Review

Upon first listening to Worried About The Fire, you might — like the music itself — be wordless. “Disquieting,” “disconcerting,” and “disturbing” are just some suggestions with which to describe the album.

Ortolan – Time On A String Album Review

“I’m ready/ I’m ready for anything you give me,” sings Ortolan’s Stephanie Cottingham on “Anything.” The lyrics of the opening track of Ortolan’s full-length debut, Time On A String, echo the anticipation surrounding the album’s release.

Beach House – Teen Dream Album Review

One can say, without taking anything away from Beach House and Devotion, that on their latest offering, Teen Dream, Beach House rove deeper. The tracks still shimmer and haunt, but something more tangible is present in the lyrics. From its introduction with “Zebra” to the farewell of “Take Care,” in which, “It’s no good unless...Read...
