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...

Nerves Junior – “Kale” Music Video

I’m into this mopey video full of nonchalant creepers.

Young Circles – Jungle Habits Album Review

There’s something to be said about an album so arcane and compelling that writing an introduction to the review proves paralyzing. Young Circles’ Jungle Habits deserves an amazing lead, a pull-quote worthy of print, but I’m left rather motionless at the keyboard. Jungle Habits‘ spiritual rhythm and dynamic approach to songwriting makes the album one...Read...

The Better Letters – Mixed Feelings Album Review

1970’s Yé-yé punk pop? An old genre’s new sub-genre? Even in this, the heyday of music categorizing snobbery that seems to delight fans, bloggers, and YouTube commenters round the globe, The Better Letters aren’t that easy to classify. So fall back for five minutes and let’s review. I’ll start with what’s not confusing: the lyrics....Read...
