Frog Eyes – Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph Album Review

Frog Eyes have been chugging away at the indie music game for almost 10 years, and have crafted such an interesting blend of alt-punk-folk that it’s hard to not see their influence everywhere. From bands like Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs and The Mountain Goats, to contemporaries like Silver Jews and Fruit Bats, the Canada-based Frog...Read...

Strength And Sanity – Self-Titled Album Review

Atmospheric and heavy, Strength And Sanity is a one-man band creating lush post-metal. Justin Almquist creates brooding, dark textures intermixing prog, jazz, and metal throughout his self-titled disc. The standouts are the lengthier tracks, one occurring at the midpoint and the other at the end of the record. The former, “Lines, Unfolded, Began Forward,” is...Read...

Caribou – Swim Album Review

It doesn’t surprise me that Caribou (stage name of one Daniel Victor Snaith) has a PhD in Math.

Aloha – Home Acres Album Review

What comes to mind when one thinks of the Midwest? Grey skies, farmland, freezing winters, and hot, humid summers are all possibilities. Aloha’s fifth full-length record, Home Acres, does an impeccable job of encompassing all of that one might imagine life in the Midwest to contain, including the former attributes, as well as feelings of...Read...

Sightings – City Of Straw Album Review

Ahhh, and here’s bizarro experimental music done right. Semi-popular indie music just keeps getting weirder and weirder, and I for one couldn’t be more proud or excited with humanity. This band has been around for the better part of the decade, cutting their teeth in the NYC avant-garde scene and apparently making some powerful friends...Read...
