Pattern-Frenzy With Julia Rothman

Brooklyn artist Julia Rothman can pump out patterns for a good portion of her artistic career, and that is an amazing thought. With colors that pop, the patterns seem suitable for anything from wallpapers and wrapping papers to desktop backgrounds. And that might sound like a lot, but that list is actually pretty short-sighted; Rothman...Read...

Amber Rubarth – Good Mystery Album Review

Amber Rubarth’s Good Mystery unfolds steadily and rather predictably — less like a mystery and more like a breezy romantic comedy that you can’t help but enjoy. This is the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter’s third LP, which sways between a folk and alt-country feel.   Rubarth has a lovely voice (especially in falsetto) and sings with a...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...

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...

SXSW 2010 Festival Review: WhoMadeWho, The Black Angels, Liars, dd/mm/yyyy, Bear In Heaven

So, despite my whirlwind Americana tour of the Southwest (courtesy of the Cash Only: Diners, Dive Bars, and Yardsales Road Trip), I still managed to enjoy a healthy dose of sonic debauchery in Austin, Texas. Below are my TOP FIVER PICKS from this year’s SxSW Festivus Maximus!   5. The fold-out couch I drooled and...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...

Boy Genius – Staggering Album Review

Boy Genius hail from the musical hotbed of Brooklyn, NY, yet have none of the stylings one would expect from a such a stereotypically hip community. A sort of off-kilter country-tinged pop blend in the vein of Wilco and The New Pornographers, Boy Genius fail to draw much interest in continued listening. Very well-produced and...Read...
