Emil & Friends – Downed Economy EP Album Review

Emil & Friends’ new EP, Downed Economy, is perhaps best exemplified by its opening track and title track. Although the most upbeat track on the EP, “Downed Economy” shares similarities with the other songs by featuring an abundance of electronic sound clips, trickling into the ear like watery drips. This is modern electronic funk, rolling...Read...

Musicfest NW 2010 Festival Recap: Ted Leo And The Pharmacists, Sallie Ford And The Sound Outside, Morning Teleportation

My experience at Musicfest NW this year went a little less smoothly than usual. There were decisions that needed to be made, and bands that needed to be missed because they played just slightly out of the means of timely transportation (as generally confined to by bicycle and bus). As a result, I definitely saw...Read...

Bumbershoot 2010 Festival Review: The Decemberists, Baroness, Horse Feathers, Trampled By Turtles, Hey Marseilles

This year’s Bumbershoot may have been a bit smaller, rainier, and less musically-sophisticated than it usually is, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t some amazing performances. Here are some of the best from this year’s lineup.   Baroness While Mastodon may get all the grandiose hype for their concept albums about a plot that makes...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...

Geographer – Animal Shapes Album Review

  Geographer’s new EP, Animal Shapes, is a pop rock album with a mixture of synthetic and natural elements. The band consists of three members: Michael Deni (guitar, synth, vocals), Nathan Blaz (cello), and Brian Ostreicher (drums). Geographer often mixes an organic cello and airy vocals with synthetic beats, creating an interesting contrast. The melodies...Read...

Unicycle Loves You – “Justine” Music Video

Unicycle Loves You might craft songs with straight-forward pop hooks and beats, but there’s always something more complicated under the surface. In the case of “Justine”, the dissonant guitarwork is certainly hypnotic. This video is just the same — seemingly straightforward initially, but breaking down into bloody messes and spastic colorations. Directed by Anthony Dixon....Read...
