Live Review: Julian Casablancas + the Voidz with Mac DeMarco at Showbox 11/13/14

Julian Casablancas kicked off his Showbox set Thursday night with an eleven minute experimental track about the corruption of the music industry and the doom of creativity called “Human Sadness”. It is truly a new era for one of our generation’s best songwriters, personally coming full circle with the highs and lows of indie rockRead more…

Movie Review: The Postal Service – Everything Will Change

“Are we going to play ‘Such Great Heights’ nine times tonight like Watch The Throne?” Jenny Lewis jokes around with Ben Gibbard back stage before their sold-out gig at the Greek in Berkeley while Jimmy Tamborello relaxes on the nearby couch. On the band’s only prior tour in 2003, the question (even apart from theRead more…

Album Review: Les Sins – Michael

Don’t be fooled by the inflatable tube dancer guy on the front cover – behind that hapless smile is a maniacal, beastly force waiting to be unleashed. Chaz Bundick continues to prove himself as one of the most capable, surprising, and provocative producers on the scene today. Last year, he dropped Anything In Return, aRead more…

Album Review: Panda Bear – Mr Noah EP

It’s been a great year and a half or so for writing albums about death. Most recently, Flying Lotus killed on impact with his incredible You’re Dead!, but Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, isn’t far behind. Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper has been whispered around the Animal Collective spheres for what feels like forever,Read more…

Live Review: MØ with HOLYCHILD at Neptune Theatre 10/20/2014

Everything I’ve ever thought about MØ is wrong. Well, maybe not all of it – I think she put together an incredible debut LP this year with No Mythologies To Follow, and I think that hard work has put her in league with the leaders of the new wave of indie pop like Grimes, CharliRead more…

Album Review: Run The Jewels – Run The Jewels 2

Last year, Mike and Jaime made a free record that they expected a handful of Killer Mike and El-P fans to like. After all, the two have been working together for a while – Mike made an appearance on El’s Cancer 4 Cure, then El produced Mike’s best record ever, R.A.P. Music. Together, the twoRead more…

Album Review: Hudson Mohawke – Chimes EP

I don’t know if there’s a UK producer on the scene who has had a bigger 2014 than Hudson Mohawke. The Glasgow native has been riding an unstoppable wave of momentum that hasn’t stopped since his collaboration with Lunice, TNGHT, put out their eponymous EP back in July of 2012. Since then, I don’t thinkRead more…

Album Review: Kele – Trick

It’s funny to say it, but in the last half decade of Kele‘s work, Bloc Party’s comeback LP Four is an outlier amongst an otherwise continuous show of strength in another direction. Sure, Four gave Bloc Party fans another great record to rotate out in their stash, but since the band’s electronic-heavy third LP, Intimacy,Read more…
