VIDEO: Chromatics “Cherry”

December 12th, 2012 · 1 Comment

I love everything this band touches. “Cherry” is on the forthcoming After Dark 2 triple LP from Italians Do It Better. The retro production reminds me of the “Drive” OST, which makes sense since Chromatics had a song on it, but the feel of this song in particular evokes that opening piece by Kavinski. This […]

MP3: Paul Banks “The Base”

September 12th, 2012 · Comments Off on MP3: Paul Banks “The Base”

For his second solo LP, Interpol’s Paul Banks has abandoned his Julian Plenti alias in favor of his own name. The album, entitled Banks, will be out October 23, 2012 on Matador Records, home to all but one Interpol record. Having such a distinctive voice is a bit of a double edged sword for singers […]

MP3: Murder By Death “Lost River”

September 12th, 2012 · Comments Off on MP3: Murder By Death “Lost River”

Murder By Death is releasing its sixth full-length, Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon on September 25th via Bloodshot Records. I have to admit I haven’t kept as close an eye on this band as I once did. There was a time when I didn’t miss a Murder By Death show in my town (or any neighboring […]

Tim Kasher’s The Game of Monogamy was released October 5 by Saddle Creek. It’s the most cohesive and blatantly “pop” collection of songs that any of his bands have released.

MP3: New Interpol "Lights"

April 28th, 2010 · Comments Off on MP3: New Interpol "Lights"

кухни Activity in the land of Interpol. The band’s website Interpolnyc.com has simply stated “2010” for a few months with no real clue as to what or when something might happen. An email went out to fans this evening with a link to the home page, which greets you with daunting music and a new, […]

Jawbreaker’s Unfun reissue out this week, reunion rumors + stream “Gutless” Mp3

April 9th, 2010 · Comments Off on Jawbreaker’s Unfun reissue out this week, reunion rumors + stream “Gutless” Mp3

I’ve been on a Jawbreaker kick for the past week or so and just last night I stumbled on the notes to “Outpatient” (off 1994’s 24-Hour Revenge Therapy) while messing around on the bass. So, I was pretty excited to come across this current interview at Rolling Stone with Blake Schwarzenbach (guitars/vocals) and Adam Pfahler […]

Despite being only 50% of its heyday glory, this incarnation of The Bunnymen (namely guitarist Will […]

Devo converts Olympians with “Uncontrollable Urge”

February 24th, 2010 · Comments Off on Devo converts Olympians with “Uncontrollable Urge”

With its first new album in two decades launching this April, Devo is poised to prove to the world that Devolution is real, looking only slightly rounder for the wear. The band played during prime time at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver two nights ago with a smattering of classics like “Uncontrollable Urge” as well […]

MP3: Murder By Death “Pizza Party (at Gloria Estefan’s House)” free holiday download

December 22nd, 2009 · Comments Off on MP3: Murder By Death “Pizza Party (at Gloria Estefan’s House)” free holiday download

Murder By Death has emailed its fans a link to download a free (or name your own price) holiday themed mp3, entitled “Pizza Party (at Gloria Estefan’s House).” The song is only 39 seconds long and sounds like, well, a pizza party quite possibly taking place at Gloria Estefan’s house. So, well done on the […]

MP3: Cursive covers The Cure

August 12th, 2009 · Comments Off on MP3: Cursive covers The Cure

At a stop in Kentucky yesterday, Cursive played a free in-store at CD Central. Stripping down to acoustic guitar, Tim Kasher pulled out an obscure Cure cover with “The Lovecats” off The Cure’s stop-gap compilation Japanese Whispers from 1983. It’s kind of a shitty recording, but the cover is amusing, if you happen to like […]

MP3: Julian Plenti “Games for Days”

July 25th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Must be getting close to album release day, since another free track has leaked from Paul Banks’ debut solo record, Julian Plenti is… Skyscraper (out August 4th on Matador). This one veers well into Interpol’s spiky, post-punk lane- so much so that it almost seems odd that Banks didn’t offer this one up to the […]

MP3: Love and Rockets gets its due

July 24th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Love and Rockets were another one of my gateway bands in high school that opened up a whole new world of music to me. The band’s fluke Top 40 hit, “So Alive”, represents very little in terms of the breadth of its myriad musical styles. Despite being 3/4’s of the legendary art-punk pioneers, Bauhaus, Love […]

MP3: Polvo “Beggars Bowl”

June 19th, 2009 · Comments Off on MP3: Polvo “Beggars Bowl”

The first thing that struck me when I listened to the first new Polvo song in a decade was how heavy it is. The band has always rocked, don’t get me wrong. But it was in an slightly unconventional, tunneling Sonic Youth way. The guitars are still spindly and difficult, flexing all the math-rock muscles […]

May 19th, 2009 · Comments Off on DOWNLOAD: Solid Gold “Bible Thumper” mp3

Been hearing a good bit of Solid Gold on Sirius XMU lately. Something about the whole sad disco thing that perks up my ears. Must be all that growing up on New Order. Anyway, both Solid Gold singles I’ve heard are top notch, including “Bible Thumper.” Since the new Junior Boys is kind of meh, […]

(Julian) Plenti of mp3’s

May 18th, 2009 · Comments Off on (Julian) Plenti of mp3’s

When news of Paul Banks’ solo record hit the week before last, there was very little in the way of musical evidence, save for a few looped blips at julianplenti.com. Now Matador has stepped up with a full download of “Fun That We Have” off Skyscraper, the Julian Plenti debut, set for an early August […]

Degrees of separation: Talking Heads and Joy Division

April 24th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I had never made the correlation between the Talking Heads song “The Overload” and Joy Division, but I’m Waking Up To… has an intriguing post about the history of that closing track off Talking Heads’ seminal Remain in Light LP from 1980. None of the members of the Talking Heads had ever heard Joy Division’s […]

New Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band “Nikorette” mp3

April 20th, 2009 · Comments Off on New Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band “Nikorette” mp3

I hadn’t given too much thought to why Conor Oberst has been releasing records under his own name, as opposed to using the Bright Eyes brand, because I didn’t think his 2008 solo debut for Merge differed all that greatly from the last Bright Eyes record, Cassadaga. It’s only natural to feel stifled by something […]
