Say Hi – Um, Uh Oh Album Review

Over the years, and with each new release, Seattle-based Say Hi seemed to lose a touch of its eccentric bedroom-pop quality. The music remained endearing, but was clearly transforming into something more “grown-up.” Luckily, the sole creator behind Say Hi, Eric Elbogen, has managed to bring new life to his project with his latest, entitled...Read...

INXS – Original Sin Album Review

It is my belief that to comment thoroughly on an album, it takes at least five full, uninterrupted listens within a 10-day period. Appropriately, I am sitting down to write my comments on Original Sin, the 2011 INXS reinvention/ tribute album, after my fifth complete listen.

Pocket Panda – Self-Titled Album Review

Listening to the 5-song EP from Seattle’s Pocket Panda is kind of like the first time that you see your older brother cry. You discover that burly men with deep voices can get sentimental too.

My Disco – Little Joy Album Review

If you’re expecting a traditional dance party from Australia’s My Disco, you’re expecting wrong. My Disco takes the tasteful, throbbing repetition used so well by bands like Clinic — or more recently, Suuns — and amps up the percussive elements tenfold, while deconstructing the songwriting into minimal bits. My Disco is the drum circle, Psychic...Read...
