MinionTV – Self-Titled Album Review

The ever-so-helpful blurb about MinionTV describes the instrumental band as something in a similar vein as Mogwai and Explosions In The Sky. Thanks guys. Really, thanks. As a post-rock band, describing yourself in the same vein as the two biggest post-rock bands around might be good marketing, but it sure doesn’t narrow down what niche...Read...

Las Rubias Del Norte – Ziguala Album Review

Las Rubias Del Norte’s third album, Ziguala, seems to combine familiar Latin American elements, such as Spanish guitar, creaking underlying percussion, and clicking castanets, with a contemporary indie rock feel. The band’s Spanish name makes it seem a little predictable in that regard, but in fact, there’s much more than meets the eye. Ziguala is...Read...

Tegan And Sara – Alligator Remix Album Review

But the simultaneous release of new albums from the likes of Cold Cave and Hypernova suggest otherwise. The...Read...

Nite Nite – How To Touch The Moon Album Review

With a trio with names like Davis, Sarah Brooks Levine, and Matthew Gibson Brown, Nite Nite may seem like a subtle, young impression that aims to make subtle ripples in an ostentatious, exhibitionist genre like goth pop. Just the word “goth” rounds up typical notions of garishness, but How To Touch The Moon sounds gentle...Read...

E-KO – Urbanism Album Review

Our entire human existence changed with the realization that, in 2008, more than half of the world’s population could be found living in cities, as opposed to rural areas. Our urban islands, however densely populated, are separated by great lengths of time and distance. Scientists predict one day that humans will be able to travel...Read...
