Ceremony – Zoo Album Review

I’m going to say it right off the bat: anytime a hardcore band does something that isn’t the stereotypical hardcore sound, it gets automatically bumped up at least one full letter grade for ingenuity in its genre. That may be unfair, but it is one of those things that can’t be fully understood until you’ve...Read...

Mwahaha – Love Music Video

Perhaps when thou art in love, a chorus of angels descend upon thee like Mwahaha… at least if you are entangled in love of a particularly twisted variety, full of contortion and an intense degree of harmonic and visual discomfort. If falling in love is like “Love,” it’s a bit like falling slow-motion into timelessly...Read...

Ganglians – Still Living Album Review

Although, the sophomore album from Ganglians opens with the perplexing dedication, “This is a sad sad song for all you sad sad people,” it quickly becomes evident that the objective of the album is actually to brighten up lives with the right touch of reverb and sun-drenched melodies. As the voice of lead singer Ryan...Read...

Feelings – Self-Titled Album Review

One of the most appealing aspects of Portland dance band Guidance Counselor has always been frontman Ian Anderson’s ability to incorporate punk rock rawness into the frequently frou-frou genre, to create dance punk with an heaping dose of swagger. At times, Anderson comes off like a garage-dwelling, lo-fi James Murphy — open, believable, and simultaneously...Read...

Dag for Dag – Boo Album Review

The debut full-length album from Stockholm brother-sister duo Dag För Dag, entitled Boo, starts off with a short introduction track. At the end of this 30-second preface, there is a distant, “One… two… three… four,” and immediately track two, “I Am The Assassin,” commences. With a compelling bass and drum line, followed by a sleek...Read...

Troubled Coast – Letters Album Review

Californians Troubled Coast aren’t breaking new ground here. Their latest effort, Letters, takes a cue from the recently desceased Crime In Stereo, who had long made an effort to mix elements of shoegaze, indie rock and hardcore along with references to Bukowski and paying off student loans. While Troubled Coast’s lyrical stance seems to come...Read...

Yoni And Josiah Wolf Live Show Review

As you drive aimlessly and helplessly through the grimy lower portions of known Los Angeles, you may find yourself lost on the most eastern part of Beverly boulevard. In a neighborhood known colloquially as Hi-Fi (Historic Filipinotown), this stretch of road is a far cry from the Julia Roberts / Richard Gere version of Beverly....Read...
