Friends Brooklyn Band Releases Debut Single March 21 via Lucky Number!

Much bravado, and more bullshit, has been spoken in the name of the like-minded ‘free spirit’ amongst the underbelly of indie-cool hopefuls in NYC’s hippest borough, Brooklyn. Putting all that aside, the nascent quintet Friends is quite probably the finest and purest embodiment of said aesthetic. The band is releasing their debut single, “Friend Crush,”...Read...

Rufio – Anybody Out There Album Review

Love them or hate them, Rufio’s brand of Southern California pop-punk is equal parts melody and slick guitar noodling. A majority of their appeal lies heavily on singer Scott Sellers’ ability to convincingly sing about a myriad of topics whether it’s the fickle scene or girls who’ve crushed him. There’s absolutely no reason why Rufio...Read...

Nuclear Power Pants – Wicked Eats The Warrior Album Review

Nuclear Power Pants came off create synth-heavy, spazzy, lo-fi garage rock with an interplay between lethargic male and hi-energy female vocals. It’s certainly entertaining, to a degree, with tracks like “Uh Oh” starting off with buzzing synths and guttural expulsions of sound that are immediately engaging. “Graveyard” and “Partytime U.S.A.” have some some really bouncy...Read...

Buke & Gass – Riposte Album Review

Buke & Gass certainly make music that is both adorably charming and unbelievably grating. Their latest album, Riposte, clocks in at just under 45-minutes, but its 14 tracks seem to go on forever in what feels like an off-the-wall, high-energy experimental pop-rock marathon. Like a mixture of Nedelle Torrisi of Cryptacize and Hayley Williams of...Read...

Kyle Andrews – KANGAROO Album Review

Tennessee-based singer-songwriter Kyle Andrews is releasing his 18-minute EP (with one remix track) just in the nick of time. KANGAROO comes out the tail end of August, and it is a summery blockbuster of an album — a caffeine-riddled energetic blast full of feel-good pop songwriting. The synthpop songs are short, sweet, and guaranteed to...Read...

CHIEF – Modern Rituals Album Review

&nsbp; Santa Monica’s CHIEF falls into the unfortunate category of a band which gives a false first impression: they can enthrall with a taste, with one track — and then let you down dramatically when you encounter the full album. The single released prior to their sophomore release was enjoyable (“Night & Day”); but repeated...Read...

Casiokids – Topp Stemning Pa Lokal Bar Album Review

Although Norwegian electronic experimental group Casiokids released their first album in 2006, the naïveté — childishness, almost — of their early release continues to define their stylistic mélange in their latest release, translated to ironically mean Great Vibe At A Local Bar. Their novice approach not only describes their attitude to their niche-y genre of...Read...

BLK JKS – Zol! Album Review

BLK JKS released their first US full-length last year, and it made a relatively small ripple in the music pond. This year’s EP Zol! from the South African band promises to make much more of a splash, due mostly to the well-deserved hype that has surrounded them recently. Not only did BLK JKS win a...Read...
