The Devil is in the Details

Incisive Metal outfit Agalloch focuses on making the most of the little things

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 18, 2014
As the music recording business continues to shrink, the music merchandising business continues to grow. In the last few years, one of the most unusual burgeoning merch trends has been bands attaching themselves to alcoholic beverages.   

Yvette with Sleigh Bells

Tuesday • Bogart’s

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 10, 2014
Yvette is one of those bands whose music, at its best, sounds like something going really, really wrong. The Brooklyn, N.Y., team of vocalist/guitarist Noah Kardos-Fein and drummer Dale Eisinger generate wild, anxious, Industrial-skewing Noise Punk that constantly thunders, squirms or drones.

Even as the decades have passed and several members have moved in and out, Supersuckers remain committed to flippant, hooky, high-energy, underground-friendly Rock & Roll that heavily draws from Rockabilly, Garage Rock, Country and Punk.  

Guttermouth

Punk Rock covers a lot of serious, meaty topics — individualism, anger, materialism, rebellion. But as Guttermouth has proven, Punk Rock can also be about spitting in the face of propriety for the sheer pleasure of it: They are reportedly banned in Canada and have a song about a donkey sex show.  

Past and Presence

Chad Valley’s eclectic Electronic Pop looks to history for inspiration

0 Comments · Tuesday, February 11, 2014
In 2010, Hugo Manuel debuted Chad Valley — a project named after a British brand of toys and an area in Birmingham — with a self-titled EP. A year later, he issued another EP, Equatorial Ultravox, and in 2012 his first full-length, Young Hunger, landed.
