Thursday – Common Existence Album Review

There are few bands from the 2001-2003 screamo explosion that have lasted as well and as long as Thursday has. While some bands (Finch, Glasseater) broke up or reformed, others such as Thrice and Senses Fail have altered their sounds dramatically to stay as relevant as possible. Thursday has managed to find a fit between...Read...

Phosphorescent – To Willie Album Review

Taking on a cover album by one of the biggest legends in country music is an impressive feat. Doing it tastefully is a whole other story. Matthew Houck, or Phosphorescent as he is more commonly known, is an accomplished musician in his own right, with several full-lengths under his belt, the most recent of which,...Read...

Chico Fellini – Self-Titled Album Review

Chico Fellini’s publicists compared their new self-titled disc to the music of bands like PJ Harvey, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Pixies, and David Bowie. Strange as it may sound, Chico Fellini somehow really could be a hybrid of those seemingly unrelated bands. They have the musicianship of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the sexiness of...Read...

Victorian Halls – Self-Titled Album Review

It’s impossible for me to listen to Victorian Halls without drawing some conclusions between them and one of my favorite bands, Neon Blonde — a pretty much defunct side project comprised of former Blood Brothers members, Johnny Whitney and Mark Gajadhar. Both bands share screeching, otherworldly vocals and erratic, wild song structures, but as a...Read...
