Troy Gua! Fulcrum Gallery! Closing Reception! TONIGHT!

Head over to the Fulcrum Gallery in Tacoma tonight for the closing night of Monument, Troy Gua‘s current amazing show exploring the effects of war on, well, the human body. There’s also an artist talk going on tonight, which should be interesting. Reception starts at 6:00pm, but though it’s the closing reception, closing night isn’t...Read...

Beach House – Teen Dream Album Review

One can say, without taking anything away from Beach House and Devotion, that on their latest offering, Teen Dream, Beach House rove deeper. The tracks still shimmer and haunt, but something more tangible is present in the lyrics. From its introduction with “Zebra” to the farewell of “Take Care,” in which, “It’s no good unless...Read...

Foreign Born – “Early Warnings” Music Video

New video for Foreign Born’s “Early Warnings.” In its ’80s-esque summery treatment, random plants, flowers, and animals are identified almost scientifically, but I don’t think any of them actually exist in our current world (or at least that’s what a thorough Google search of terms like “Pesacov’s Umber” told me). And although my childhood wasn’t...Read...

Francesca Lee – Self-Titled Album Review

Francesca Lee’s sound is so reminiscent of ’90s fem rock that it’s as if a transportation has taken place: I’m now 19-years-old, lying on the floor next to the speakers, probably crying over some faceless boyfriend. I can feel every word deeply, and the music engulfs my emotions. If you are in need of nostalgia...Read...

Among The Oak & Ash – Self-Titled Album Review

The same way The Decemberists built their popularity on songs chronicling mothers whoring themselves out, peeping toms, murderous townsfolk; abuse and neglect and all other sorts of cruelty, Among The Oak & Ash have reworked Appalachian murder ballads for their self-titled debut. In six days, Among The Oak & Ash’s Josh Joplin and Garrison Starr...Read...

Sugarplum Fairies – Chinese Leftovers Album Review

In the first few moments of listening to Sugarplum Fairies’ Chinese Leftovers, the influences of Mazzy Star, Belle and Sebastian and Cowboy Junkies are unmistakable. Though the vocals of Silvia Ryder aren’t exactly sultry, they have a steady depth. Nonetheless, they don’t offer any surprises. Several tracks present droning harmonies comparable to those of Belle...Read...

Patrick Pleau – Hype-Moi Album Review

Singer-songwriters are very rarely my thing, because let’s face it; the majority of them are boring and seem to think that an acoustic guitar, a voice, and minimal songwriting talent are all you need to make it in the music world. Hence, my complete surprise when I randomly received a press release to download Montreal’s...Read...
