Nuclear Power Pants – Wicked Eats The Warrior Album Review

Nuclear Power Pants came off create synth-heavy, spazzy, lo-fi garage rock with an interplay between lethargic male and hi-energy female vocals. It’s certainly entertaining, to a degree, with tracks like “Uh Oh” starting off with buzzing synths and guttural expulsions of sound that are immediately engaging. “Graveyard” and “Partytime U.S.A.” have some some really bouncy...Read...

Flying Lotus – Pattern+Grid World Album Cover Review (w/ Theo Ellsworth Interview)

The album cover for Flying Lotus‘ latest EP, Pattern+Grid World, features a close-up portrait of one of Portland illustrator Theo Ellsworth‘s intricate, feathery characters. With an album title like Pattern+Grid World, Flying Lotus certainly could have taken the artwork into any number of stereotypically “cool” directions, but instead, he chose to go with the soft...Read...

Black Mountain – Wilderness Heart Album Review

I’m not sure anyone’s writing shit about the dizzying spiritual discontent of the information/overpopulation age quite as effectively as Black Mountain’s Stephen McBean.

Instead of pounding beats that could lead up to a blood-gushing scene, the song “Can’t You See,” creates the tension of...Read...

Tera Melos – Patagonian Rats Album Review

The latest from California-based mathy, spazz-prog masters Tera Melos blends their frenetic brand of technical genius with far more poppy songs and structures. While this might be a turn-off for some die-hard fans, it is not unexpected when looking at the Idioms covers EP that the band released last year. Those fans won’t be disappointed,...Read...

Junip – Fields Album Review

Two years ago, I took the train across the bay to Oakland to see José González perform the best acoustic set I’ve seen to date, while he was touring for In Our Nature. I didn’t know much about him really, except that his cover of The Knife’s “Heartbeats” was undeniably good, as was the rest...Read...
