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...

Patrick Pleau – Hype-Moi Album Review

Singer-songwriters are very rarely my thing, because let’s face it; the majority of them are boring and seem to think that an acoustic guitar, a voice, and minimal songwriting talent are all you need to make it in the music world. Hence, my complete surprise when I randomly received a press release to download Montreal’s...Read...

SXSW 2009 Festival Review: Hyperpotamus, Scissors For Lefty, Freeland, The Everyday Visuals, Port O’ Brien

Perhaps I’m jaded these days, but out of the 30+ bands I saw this year at SxSW, only one truly astounded me. HEALTH, Constantines, and Anavan won my heart last year, but this year, my heart goes solely to Madrid’s Hyperpotamus, brought to SxSW by SonicBids. Nonetheless, there were definitely other enjoyable acts – albeit...Read...

Haack: The King of Techno (2005) Documentary Review

Fever Ray – Self-Titled Album Review

Fever Ray is the creation of Karin Dreijer Andersson, one half of the lauded Swedish act, The Knife, and she makes music to get spiritual to. Combine the best brooding qualities of downtempo and ambient music (picture Hooverphonic meets Enya), with the mystery of ethnic music from countries like India or Iran, and you have...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...

Albums Of The Year 2008

Last year marked the first year in which we compiled a top five albums of the year, as deemed by nine Redefine staff writers. Remarkably, no albums were doubled up. It proved that Redefine staff writers have diverse tastes, and that their tastes run the musical gamut. This year, we decided to try the same...Read...
