Video Of The Day: Airpark, “Le Tigre”

The video for “Le Tigre” pops with hidden innuendos and dream like revelations. Staged like an elaborate off-Broadway avant garde production, the clip kicks off with Michael Ford quivering on the ground with a slice of blood on his neck. He… Continue Reading →

Track Of The Day: Farao, “The Hours”

With lushly exquisite vocals that cannot be tied to the usual woman vocalist stock suspects all critics lean on in their descriptors and spectacular complex arrangements, Farao, the musical nom de plume of Kari Jahnsen, has arrived seemingly fully formed for… Continue Reading →

Track Of The Day: The Lemonheads, “Round Here” (Florida Georgia Line cover)

If you’re really looking for an entity that defines the divide between the cosmopolitan and the rural in this here United States Of America, then fuck Trump and name-drop Florida Georgia Line instead. Who dat’, you ask? Why, only one… Continue Reading →

Track Of The Day: Foxygen, “Livin’ A Lie”

My relationship with the Foxygen duo has been about as stable and happy as Rimbaud and Verlaine’s. There’s been times I’ve wanted to kill them. On the surface, they have absolutely everything I look for in a band: Early 70s… Continue Reading →

It has long been an unspoken but solemnly held rule for both guitar bands and singer/songwriters to steer well clear of Led Zeppelin covers. In his early ’70s living God prime, Sir Jimmy Page was just so perfectionist and possessed… Continue Reading →

Lightweight Alert! Dave Grohl Can’t Even Drink One Beer Without Falling Off The Stage

For a “rocker” who allegedly worships at the cliched but eternally gilded Jack-and-syringe altar of Lemmy and Keef, Dave Grohl sure can’t hold his alcohol, can he? No matter how many thousands of VH1 Behind The Music-style rawk docs this… Continue Reading →

Next Friday (1/18/19) a new album from onetime psychedelic front runners Deerhunter is dropping. Titled Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?, it will be their first since 2015’s Fading Frontier. We haven’t heard it. Nor have we listened to a single… Continue Reading →
