Walking Sleep – Measures Album Review

Sometimes with music, especially when you’re listening to a genre that’s not a personal favorite, an album just needs time to grow on you. You may give it a few listens and walk away without much, if anything, to say. When you return a second or third time, however, you realize the album is actually...Read...

The Happy Hollows – Big Bad Wolf Music Video

There are times when animation-meets-real-life videos can take a turn for the worse (see here), but The Happy Hollows and director Ryan Reichenfeld have done alright for themselves. In this case, the psychedelic cartoon world matches the music. Download track for free at: http://thehappyhollows.bandcamp.com Ω

JT And The Clouds – Low July Live Performance Video

Chicago artists JT And The Clouds make a brand of folk and Americana-influenced indie rock that really hits sometimes. They recently released a live video of them performing “Low July”, and everything about it is fantastic — the cinematography, the sound, the expressions… it’s just a song that makes you happy. And today, in the...Read...

Yeasayer – O.N.E. Live Performance Video

“It’s hard having fun,” say Yeasayer in “O.N.E.”, and on their most recent tour, they lived up to that line. Although musically they were excellent, they proved the point that it’s hard having fun; they barely looked like they were enjoying themselves at all, with minimal crowd banter, smiles, or even basic fundamental passion. So,...Read...

GAYNGS – Relayted Album Review

With GAYNGS’ first composition, “The Gaudy Side Of Town,” record producer Ryan Olson crafted what would later be the album opener for GAYNGS’ first release, entitled Relayted. This early track was so impressive that it reeled in collaborations from members of Megafaun, Bon Iver, The Rosebuds, and Lookbook. Relayted became almost like a songwriting challenge,...Read...

GAYNGS – Cry Music Video (Godley & Creme Cover)

Having just reviewed GAYNG’s upcoming release, Relayted, I thought that I’d share their first video for “Cry”. “Cry” is actually a cover of Godley & Creme’s pop version of the song, but both videos follow the same vibe and style; one just utilizes newer technologies. I personally like the old version of the video better....Read...

Venice Is Sinking – Sand & Lines Album Review

Venice Is Sinking’s recent release, Sand & Lines, was recorded on the stage of Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA.* This full-length record was made with two microphones and an analog system and was published with no mixing or post-production of any kind. They don’t even delete the noodling and nonsense between tracks; there’s a great...Read...

Secret Cities – Pink Graffiti Album Review

Secret Cities are a psych-pop trio from Fargo, North Dakota. And much like the Coen brothers’ film of the same name, Pink Graffiti is a wonderful dreamscape of complicit artistry and deliberate complexity. Though comparable to other pop savants such as Wolf Parade or Chad VanGaalen, Pink Graffiti stands out from the rest because of...Read...
