Dirty Beaches – Badlands Album Review

Badlands is the debut output from singer-songwriter Alex Zhung Hai, aka Dirty Beaches. The Vancouver by-way-of China youngster shows an amazing amount of talent on Badlands, crafting songs with an outdated sound, but with the warmth and earnestness of timeless music. The dusty crackles and hiss of a home-recorded album fill the blank space of...Read...

Bright Eyes – The People’s Key Album Review

So, Bright Eyes. It’s come to this. That The People’s Key came out somewhat overcooked in the studio cannot come as a shock to most long-time fans of Bright Eyes. Each subsequent album after Fevers And Mirrors (with the exception of I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning) has added exponential amounts of instruments, overdubs, and cutesy...Read...

Nightlands – “All The Way” Music Video

With overdubs reminiscent of Imogen Heap, “All The Way” by Nightlands seems like a musical collage — layers and layers of the phrase, “All the way,” work with occasional sprinklings of notes. The video is similarly a low-budget collage, with faces morphing in and out of each other and very little in-between. Directed by Audrey...Read...

Destroyer – “Kaputt” Music Video

Like a bad ’80s movie, this Destroyer video for “Kaputt” starts off as a dude’s wet dream. Girls lifted out of an aerobics video dance awkwardly in spandex and leotards, pining for a nerdy-looking individual that is busy sniffing napkins like a creep. From there, the video jumps into space, becoming less sexual and more...Read...
