Oceana – Birtheater Album Review

For all intents and purposes, I should like Oceana. For their new record, Birtheater, they’ve come through with a much more polished and well-crafted collection of songs.

Plushgun – Pins and Panzers Album Review

Thanks to bands like the Postal Service, synth-pop has steadily been creeping back into peoples’ CD players (do people still use those?), and Plushgun is another band among the many that are taking cues from the likes of New Order and putting a contemporary twist on them. Plushgun’s new full-length, Pins and Panzers, is more...Read...
