Album Review: St. Vincent - St. Vincent

Listening to St. Vincent‘s new self-titled LP, I find it harder and harder to market Annie Clark’s music to friends by method of comparison. On her past efforts, including 2011′s excellent Strange Mercy and her breakthrough 2009 record Actor, Clark has stood out on the forefront of a brave, new wave of indie rock -Read more...

Live Review: Com Truise w/ Phantoms and Zoolab at Chop Suey 2/25/2014

Com Truise gave Seattle exactly one week with his interstellar new record Wave 1 before his show here Tuesday night. This is producer Seth Haley’s first Seattle stop since Sasquatch! Music Festival in 2012, where he rocked the roof off the dance tent in middle of the day. If Tuesday night’s sold out gig wasRead more...

Album Review: Beck - Morning Phase

When Beck announced Morning Phase back in October, it was a bit of a surprise. Since 2008′s Modern Guilt, we’ve seen quite a few original works from Beck even without as much as an EP. “Let’s Get Lost” with Bat for Lashes off the Twilight soundtrack, “Ramona” from Scott Pilgrim (and all the stuff heRead more...

Album Review: Com Truise - Wave 1

I want to live in whatever atmosphere Seth Haley goes to when he writes material for Com Truise. If you don’t know the story, Com Truise is an alter ego for Haley - he’s a robotic astronaut going boldly where no man has gone before etc etc. Wave 1, his first offering of brand spankingRead more...

Live Review: Mas Ysa w/ Lawrence Rothman & Zoolab at Barboza 2/19/14

For the small Barboza crowd that showed up to the Seattle debut of Mas Ysa, along with Lawrence Rothman, Wednesday night was a splendid display of left field musical prodigy. For those that didn’t, the joke’s on you – you most certainly won’t get a chance to see either of these two at such aRead more...

Album Review: Phantogram - Voices

I don’t know about you, but I feel like it’s been a long time coming for Phantogram. Maybe that’s just because the New York two piece has found a way to write songs that stick with you and make a deeper, lasting impact on the heart and mind than their counterparts. Or, maybe they’ve justRead more...

Live Review: John Talabot w/ Tyler Morrison at Q Nightclub 2/11/14

Is it any wonder that Spanish electronic wunderkind John Talabot kept Q Nightclub packed beyond reasonable comfort until 1:30am on a rainy Tuesday night in Seattle? No. Absolutely not. Talabot has some kind of insane black magic power over the groove in a room and can keep nearly 300 people dancing until dawn even whenRead more...
