Rival Schools – Pedals Album Review

I’ve always found Rival Schools to be an interesting band. They blew through the indie rock scene quickly with their debut full-length, United by Fate. They were a band that was anchored by Walter Schreifels, whose name is synonymous with New York hardcore, and who being is responsible for Hot Water Music’s best record, No...Read...

Bright Eyes – The People’s Key Album Review

So, Bright Eyes. It’s come to this. That The People’s Key came out somewhat overcooked in the studio cannot come as a shock to most long-time fans of Bright Eyes. Each subsequent album after Fevers And Mirrors (with the exception of I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning) has added exponential amounts of instruments, overdubs, and cutesy...Read...

Everyone Everywhere – Self-Titled Album Review

Lately, there’s been an influx of bands like Look Mexico, Daikon and Everyone Everywhere who are taking cues from great bands like The Promise Ring, American Football, and Owls — all the great Jade Tree and Polyvinyl groups that made making mixtapes and sweater vests acceptable in the early 2000s.

Viper Creek Club – Letters Album Review

If you own a pair of comfortable dancing shoes, Viper Creek Club’s album, Letters, is sure to bring out your inner Fred Astaire or Boogaloo Shrimp. No doubt put together with an array of synths and an endless cache of ideas, all the electronic blips and subtle sound effects will draw comparisons to bands like...Read...

Aloha – Home Acres Album Review

What comes to mind when one thinks of the Midwest? Grey skies, farmland, freezing winters, and hot, humid summers are all possibilities. Aloha’s fifth full-length record, Home Acres, does an impeccable job of encompassing all of that one might imagine life in the Midwest to contain, including the former attributes, as well as feelings of...Read...
