Howdy. Thanks for looking at these words on your computer screen. Pour yourself some whisky and crack open a fresh box of Kleenex and let’s get you set up with the latest installment of your monthly soundtrack for melancholy. Blah.  If you like what you hear here, be sure to “like” dancing on the facebooks [...]

Quickdraw: Pujol, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Twin Shadow, A Sunny Day In Glasgow, Swans

Music!  Enjoy. :Pujol – Circles:  This will sound odd, but I’m actually relieved that the first couple of singles off of Pujol’s upcoming full length have failed to make me think it’s going to be much different than his last effort.  He churns out simple but catchy rock ‘n’ roll tunes, and I sincerely hope [...]

Demitasse (Jennifer)

Demitasse is a side project of San Antonio-based singer/songwriters Erik Sanden and Joe Reyes from Buttercup (a musical partnership that has stretched over a decade). Their very recently released debut is titled Blue Medicine, and it displays the more downbeat, acoustic side of their sound. In a recent interview Erik said, “Joe and I just rounded [...]

Ought

While Pitchfork’s use of the “Best New Track” label often makes me shrug my shoulders, that doesn’t mean I won’t toss some love their way when they get one as right as they did yesterday with Ought.  Hailing from Montreal, the band features a big voice from Tim Beeler and a sound that can swell on [...]

Quickdraw: Total Control, White Reaper, Antemasque, OBN IIIs, Lone

Music!  Enjoy. :Total Control – Flesh War:  For those of you that don’t know, Total Control is lead by Mikey Young (Eddie Current Suppression Ring) and Dan Stewart (UV Race).  This post-punk gem is off their upcoming LP, which will more than likely be rad.  Look for Typical System to be released on June 24 [...]

Mixtape: Where Are We Now?

I’m not usually one to do any sort of listing that isn’t of the year-end kind, but I thought it would be fun if I started checking-in here and there throughout the year with a mix of tracks that I’m really loving at that point.  No rambling or anything like that, just a playlist that [...]

Tune Yards

In just under a month Merrill Garbus and her cohorts in Tune Yards will release the highly anticipated follow-up to 2011′s Who Kill.  The first single was an upbeat, refreshing number called Water Fountain, and now there’s a fancily produced pop ballad-like effort titled Wait For A Minute.  Neither are as raw or wild as [...]

The Impression: Something something scary mirror. The Reality: [...]

Bridge Collapse (Noah)

As sad as I am that Grass Widow is on an artistic hiatus, I can’t say that I’m not absolutely ecstatic about the crush of new/interesting/excellent tunes the ladies of GW have been cranking out. First it was Hannah Lew’s Cold Beat, then Lillian Marling’s Ruby Pins, and now Raven Mahon and Lew’s thrashy little [...]

Reservations (Jennifer)

Austin’s Reservations have recently been working on the follow up to their promising 2013 self titled EP. Fronted by singer/songwriter Jana Horn, the band has transitioned from its beginnings as a mostly acoustic folk/pop act to a fuller, richer sound thanks to the outstanding guitar work by Paul Price (Good Field), the intuitive drumming from Jason Baczynski [...]
