La Dispute Live Show Review

This probably won’t be the most “professional” review ever — but in my shaky defense, I dare say that previous revisions were even more visceral and less sophisticated than this one… so there’s that. Now onto the concert-going frustrations of a La Dispute fan over the age of 21… I first heard La Dispute over...Read...

Thrice – Major/Minor Album Review

Orange County band Thrice have certainly come a long way from playing emotive post-hardcore (or screamo) and touring with bands like American Nightmare, Converge, and Bane, to creating interesting and dense straight-ahead rock albums. It’s not like this is big news, though; Thrice have been moving further along from their second major label album Vheissu...Read...

Rival Schools – Pedals Album Review

I’ve always found Rival Schools to be an interesting band. They blew through the indie rock scene quickly with their debut full-length, United by Fate. They were a band that was anchored by Walter Schreifels, whose name is synonymous with New York hardcore, and who being is responsible for Hot Water Music’s best record, No...Read...

X-Ray Press – UVB-76 Album Review

Since 1982, a shortwave radio station in Russia has been transmitting the same short, monotonous buzz tone at the rate of approximately 25 tones per minute, just about 24 hours a day, every day. That station, UVB-76, has since been nicknamed “The Buzzer,” for obvious reasons. According to Wikipedia, the actual purpose of the station...Read...
