Battles, Nisennenmondai Live Show Review

Keeping score of Battles’ musical configuration from album to album can be perplexing, but the effort is more than worth the confusion. They began as an instrumental band (EP C), to add vocals (Mirrored), then lose vocalist Tyondai Braxton. For their latest, Gloss Drop, they’ve featured a whole host of guest vocalists. As Battles is...Read...

Maserati, Sleepy Eyes Of Death Live Show Review

The Maserati and Sleepy Eyes Of Death billing was one of those interesting mashes. Two bands theoretically playing the same broad spectrum of music, but proving that genre tags really mean nothing. These two “post-rock” bands couldn’t be more different sounding at all. The Sunset Tavern Seattle, WA 2011 – 04/19 Sleepy Eyes Of Death...Read...

Solar Bear – Captains Of Industry Album Review

Solar Bear’s six-track EP, Captains Of Industry, opens with “Logical Fallacy,” a minute-long intro track that sounds like a Refused track run through a grainy vintage filter. And if its title is any indicator, the song is a bit of a trick; it puts you off your guard, making you wonder whether your speakers are...Read...

X-Ray Press – UVB-76 Album Review

Since 1982, a shortwave radio station in Russia has been transmitting the same short, monotonous buzz tone at the rate of approximately 25 tones per minute, just about 24 hours a day, every day. That station, UVB-76, has since been nicknamed “The Buzzer,” for obvious reasons. According to Wikipedia, the actual purpose of the station...Read...
