Feelings – Self-Titled Album Review

One of the most appealing aspects of Portland dance band Guidance Counselor has always been frontman Ian Anderson’s ability to incorporate punk rock rawness into the frequently frou-frou genre, to create dance punk with an heaping dose of swagger.

WhoMadeWho – “Every Minute Alone” Music Video

In their new video for “Every Minute Alone,” Danish electropop trio WhoMadeWho explore real human sadness, through montages of what was always a childhood taboo — men crying.

Hidden Number – Human_Error Album Review

There’s been a swell of dark loud psych-prog coming out these days, which I for one couldn’t be happier about. In the last six months or so, I’ve found myself completely immersed in new discs by Lesbian, Titan, the Psychic Paramount, Intronaut, and now, Hidden Number. It’s not like I was going out searching for...Read...
