Caribou – Swim Album Review

It doesn’t surprise me that Caribou (stage name of one Daniel Victor Snaith) has a PhD in Math. Talk to a math nerd for more than an hour about anything, and you’ll find that, more often than not, they relish in the joy of deconstructing and dismantling any little thing, just for the hell of...Read...

Aaron Martin – Worried About The Fire Album Review

Upon first listening to Worried About The Fire, you might — like the music itself — be wordless. “Disquieting,” “disconcerting,” and “disturbing” are just some suggestions with which to describe the album. The darkness of these adjectives, however, is much to the credit of Worried About The Fire, Aaron Martin’s fourth full-length solo album. Although...Read...

The Knife – Tomorrow, In A Year Album Review

Swedish brother-sister duo, The Knife, have become known for their innovative music and extremely weird live shows. Their recent collaboration with Mt. Sims (DJ Matthew Sims) and PlanningtoRock (Janine Rostron, a Berlin-based musician/performer) is definitely a challenge to those who would have called their music “pop” when their albums Deep Cuts and Silent Shout made...Read...

Mark Mulroney‘s Murals & Sketches.

The Good, The Bad, The Weird (2008) Film Review

From its opening train hijacking sequence to its creative opening credits, The Good, The Bad, The Weird seemed like a film that would be right up my alley. The first few minutes were so enjoyable that I was quite sure that the goofy, highly stylized film would be one of my new favorites. Well, that...Read...

Yeasayer – Odd Blood Album Review

Upon first listen to Odd Blood, Brooklyn-based band Yeasayer’s sophomore album, those familiar with their debut All Hour Cymbals might scratch their heads and wonder if they are playing a practical joke on the listeners. Their debut was marked by folky, quirky, pop-melded tunes. On Odd Blood, Yeasayer seems to shrug off any expectations of...Read...

WHY? – Eskimo Snow Album Review

Eskimo Snow is an album full of what I would call “unseeming pop songs.” WHY? have managed to craft an album of songs that aren’t particularly graceful or classically poppy, but somehow, it works. A couple lines from this song or that song manages to get lodged into your head, and before you know it,...Read...
