Leven Signs – Hemp Is Here Album Review

Leven Signs Hemp Is Here Digitalis (2013 Reissue; 1985) Some records are made before their time. Many things have changed in the 28 years since Hemp Is Here was first released – but even now, with an additional 3 decades of ethnomusicology under our belts, its thrift store Hindustani vibrations still sound freaky.

La Femme – “Sur La Planche” Music Video

La Femme is a band whose stylistic choices I do not doubt — both musically and visually. This video for “Sur La Plache” has some technobabble elements, but mixes those with surf imagery and tons of red lighting, like Jaws joining forces with ’50s sci-fi films.

Little Girls – Concepts Album Review

Sure, Canada gave the world Broken Social Scene, but analogously speaking, Canada may be to the crowd of Crystal Castles fans what the last decade of Sub Pop releases is to modern hipsterdom.

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.
