The Glasgow quartet has already built a ton of buzz with their 2012 EP while touring with the equally impassioned (but sadly defunct) Wu Lyf, but they took time since then to develop aRead more…

Okay, this is going to seem kind of weird. It’s late March now – Spring is finally upon us – and here we are presenting Courtney Barnett and her band decked out in costume.

Live Video: Wolf Alice

Even after releasing a pair of EP’s, Wolf Alice has yet to show their teeth. The young London four-piece have grown from a folky duo into a gnashing, shoegazy, guitar-heavy band steeped in 90’s alternative rock but with a freshly energized take. But their past singles “Fluffy” and “Moaning Lisa Smile” have only hinted atRead more…

Live Video: Viet Cong

There’s a lot of buzz about Viet Cong right now, and for a lot of reasons, but while their pedigree, controversial name, and recognizable post-punk influences make for easy talking points, it’s their ferocious energy and novel songwriting that seems to resonate so strongly with fans and critics alike.
