Dolorean – The Unfazed Album Review

It must be a blessing and a curse for Portland’s Dolorean that the similarly named Delorean, from Spain, have gotten so much buzz in the past year. While the latter has been blogged about by indie kids all over the world, inevitably some fans have accidentally stumbled across the former. The two bands sound nothing...Read...

WOMEN – Public Strain Album Review

The opening track to Public Strain, the sophomore release from the Alberta, Canada band WOMEN, may sound like it is straight out of a slasher film, but there is nothing frightening about this band. Instead of pounding beats that could lead up to a blood-gushing scene, the song “Can’t You See,” creates the tension of...Read...

Film School – Fission Album Review

Maybe it should be said as a precursor to this review that I’m a complete sucker for most of what the music world likes to call “shoegaze,” so it goes without saying that I was an enormous fan of both of this Bay Area band’s previous full-length albums, even though they often veer into retro...Read...

Secret Colours – Self-Titled Album Review

Now the obvious critique I’m sure most people would offer in regards to a band like Chicago’s Secret Colours would be: lack of originality, plain and simple. But since this is tasty psych/garage stuff, I’m not even going to waste my time with any of that bullshit. If your idea of a party involves “LSD,...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...

Foreign Born – “Early Warnings” Music Video

New video for Foreign Born’s “Early Warnings.” In its ’80s-esque summery treatment, random plants, flowers, and animals are identified almost scientifically, but I don’t think any of them actually exist in our current world (or at least that’s what a thorough Google search of terms like “Pesacov’s Umber” told me). And although my childhood wasn’t...Read...

deVries – Death To God Album Review

DeVries’ Death To God might be titled like a metalhead’s dream, but nothing can be further from its reality. Beginning with a thirty-second ambient intro track, Death To God then explodes into the immediately engaging “Boys Are Bores,” in which deVries, consisting of former member of The Turn-Ons, Travis DeVries, easily prove that even tracks...Read...
