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. Yet unlike some of the other REDEFINE writers, who rambled down the West Coast and into the heart of Texas via a leisurely road trip, my trip is...Read...

The Knife – Tomorrow, In A Year Album Review

Swedish brother-sister duo, The Knife, have become known for their innovative music and extremely weird live shows. Their recent collaboration with Mt. Sims (DJ Matthew Sims) and PlanningtoRock (Janine Rostron, a Berlin-based musician/performer) is definitely a challenge to those who would have called their music “pop” when their albums Deep Cuts and Silent Shout made...Read...

You Say Party! We Say Die! – XXXX Album Review

Imagine Ladyhawke and The Ting Tings fusing together in an all-too-common late night Canadian disco jam sesh, and you may be envisioning new wave fivesome You Say Party! We Say Die! clad in copious amounts of shiny accessories. The British Columbia-bred group’s third album, XXXX, boasts simple basslines layered under a mod-electro visage. Opening track...Read...

Kill Paradise – The Second Effect Album Review

Listening to the newest album by Nick Cocozzella’s latest project calls up a feeling not unlike that of stumbling upon Conor Oberst in your iTunes library after years of not listening to heart-wrenching Bright Eyes ballads. But even though we can recall the same adolescent memories, stirred by simple, complaining lyrics paired with dramatized teenage...Read...

Aluminum Babe – 17 Album Review

Superficially, Aluminum Babe seems to be a DIY-driven, fierce frontwoman-powered electro outfit making music suitable for garages and house parties. In theory, they seem to be the type of band that has a well-honed demographic and probably fills a solid niche. In reality, they’re all over the electro map, and their extremely long sixteen-track album,...Read...

Forks and Knives – Self-Titled Album Review

With their homemade press kit, Forks and Knives seem like a band with DIY roots right off the bat. But unlike many bands that throw together a press kit, write a personal note, and call that enough, Forks and Knives manage to come off as professional despite being hugely unconventional. Included in their package was...Read...
