New Politics – “Yeah Yeah Yeah” Music Video

The film-this-band-in-a-room music video aesthetic has grown tired through the years, and it’s rare to find a garage rock video these days that can hold much attention. Leave it to the Scandinavians, who’ve been blowing up the music scene lately. The unpredictability in this video for “Yeah Yeah Yeah” captures the band’s infectious live energy...Read...

ceo – White Magic Album Review

Casiokids – Topp Stemning Pa Lokal Bar Album Review

SXSW 2010 Festival Review: Men, Neon Indian, Juiceboxxx, Major Lazer, The Lonely Forest, Polly Mackey & The Pleasure Principle

A week-and-a-half after returning from SxSW 2010 should be enough time to blend back into mainstream society, recover from strep throat, and map out my SxSW favorites.
