Make Art, Use Tea Bags!

This post and these images are taken from Yanko Design. Created by Yuree S. Lim and Jieun Yang, this might be a prototype rather than an actual product. I can’t be sure. In either case, I constantly have the problem of not knowing what to do with my teabags after using them (I generally resort...Read...

Gospel Gossip – Drift Album Review

Gospel Gossip are yet another Midwest discovery from Northfield, Minnesota. They’re a rather young three-piece that formed in 2007, with one prior ful-length album. It’s said they began as twinkling dream-pop; with Drift, they’ve sharpened their sound and are buzzing with experimentation. What comes to mind is “shoegazed power pop” — a strain of shoegaze...Read...

Jamie Lidell – Compass Album Review

On a recent hour-long drive, I burned a CD of mp3s, and all that would fit on the disc was CocoRosie’s entire Grey Oceans album and nine tracks from Jamie Lidell’s latest effort, Compass.

Ja Prawn – Everybody Album Review

Everybody, the debut release from Ja Prawn on vosotros, combines disturbingly authentic renditions of late ’70s and early ’80s movie sci-fi soundtracks, classic synth sounds, and lo-fi bent oddities, in a mischievously playful EP.   Much of this album is sequencer and arpeggio-led, with overlays of pleasing monophonic synth lines held together by occasionally gritty,...Read...

Las Rubias Del Norte – Ziguala Album Review

Las Rubias Del Norte’s third album, Ziguala, seems to combine familiar Latin American elements, such as Spanish guitar, creaking underlying percussion, and clicking castanets, with a contemporary indie rock feel. The band’s Spanish name makes it seem a little predictable in that regard, but in fact, there’s much more than meets the eye. Ziguala is...Read...
