Eluvium – Similes Album Review

Eluvium, aka Matthew Cooper, makes beautiful music. There is no denying that fact. His interesting mix of electronic ambient tones combined with lush piano paints a great picture. However, as someone who probably doesn’t appreciate the piano as much as I should, I’ve always found previous Eluvium albums to be a bit tiresome and boring....Read...

S – Sadstyle Album Review (Reissue)

After Seattle underground superheroes Carissa’s Wierd disbanded, Sera Cahoone went on to do her own thing, Ben Bridwell came up with Band Of Horses and Grand Archives, and Jenn Ghetto became S. If you weren’t around ora conscious while Carissa’s Wierd was around, here is what you need to know: they were cool and depressing,...Read...

Nakatomi Plaza – Ghosts Album Review

The appropriately-titled Ghosts is the final album from long-running Drive Like Jehu-inspired outfit, Nakatomi Plaza. Surprisingly, it starts off on a far more melodic note than on their previous release, Unsettled. With tunes like “Artificial Light” and “Requiem,” the NP are going for more a straightforward punk sound, as opposed to that of the records...Read...

When Summers Gone – December EP Album Review

Upon hearing the first track on When Summers Gone’s EP, December, it’s really difficult not to approach it from the viewpoint of a jaded music writer. For one thing, singer Dave Graziani’s vocal cadence apes a who’s-who of ’90s frontmen, such as Chris Cornell (mostly), Gavin Rossdale, and Eddie Vedder. The record’s second song, “Welcome...Read...

The New Enemy – Shakedown EP Album Review

StuffYouWillHate.com has quickly become one of my favorite new online blogs because the neon-clad-fashioncore-six-years-too-late kids who are featured there remind me why I hate new bands. Kids like Brokencyde who scream over computerized, plasticy beats are suddenly darlings, and everyone accepts them because most high schoolers wouldn’t know a tasty jam if it hit ’em...Read...

Kill To Kill – Fighter Album Review

A lot of bands today seem to like going for ironically harsh-sounding names and album titles; punching against the hipster grain is Kill To Kill, whose Fighter EP sounds a lot like a parking lot brawl after a hardcore show. Listen to “Radical Flyer” – DOWNLOAD MP3 Forget exploration and experimentation. That shit’s weak. Fighter...Read...

Anna Madorsky – Incantations Album Review

This album could probably be used as a case for why recording equipment should not be so readily available to the public. At least back in the day when shitty bands were making shitty albums, it was on shitty-quality cassette tapes that could be easily destroyed and forgotten; unfortunately, digital media makes it hard to...Read...
