Flesh Lights

I had a grand plan to share some ACL recommendations today, but the lineup is loaded at the top (surely I don’t have to tell you to see Outkast, St. Vincent, etc) and weak from the middle down, and I just couldn’t find much that I felt was worth posting about.  Also, it seemed like [...]

Quickdraw: Diarrhea Planet, Cherry Glazerr, Tennis System, Weed Hounds, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart

Music!  Enjoy. :Diarrhea Planet – Heat Wave:  This is a great song, but I have to admit that I’m currently operating in a place where I’ll post anything that Diarrhea Planet puts out.  The band is just too fun and too on point right now for me to even consider not sharing their stuff.   [...]

Throwback Thursday: Team Sleep

Team Sleep, which is made up of Chino Moreno (Deftones), Todd Wilkinson, DJ Crook. Rick Verret (Tinfed) and Zach Hill (Hella), have decided to reunite for a new album, and that means it’s time to take a look back at their only other release – 2005′s self titled effort.

Little Big League

My plan for today was to roll out a nice five-song Quickdraw, but instead I’m going to focus on Little Big League.  I found the recently released title track off of the band’s upcoming full length, Tropical Jinx, to be pretty solid, but I think the single I have for you today is nothing short [...]

Lead singer/songwriter/guitarist Alexandra Cohen formed the band with guitarist Adrian Haynes, bassist Tomas Garcia-Olano and drummer Andrew Stevens. She writes bright, charming and smart guitar pop songs that capture your attention and make you want to listen to them over and over again. Her clear [...]

Quickdraw: Pompeii, NehruvianDOOM, Superhumanoids, Dream Police, Radical Dads

Music!  Enjoy. :Pompeii – Loom:  I’m starting to think that Pompeii’s upcoming album might end up being one of the better efforts to come out of Austin in 2014.  This song in particular reminds me of Transatlanticism/Plans-era Death Cab For Cutie.  Loom will be released on October 14 via Red Eye Transit. :NehruvianDOOM – Caskets:  [...]

The Impression: This is a film about a [...]
