Quickdraw: Thurston Moore, Half Japanese, Deerhoof, Joanna Gruesome, Charli XCX

Music!  Enjoy. :Thurston Moore – The Best Day:  While I would have preferred to get a another Chelsea Light Moving album, I’m still excited about a new Thurston Moore solo effort (his first since 2011′s Demolished Thoughts).  This single is a spectacularly crafted piece of alt-rock.  The Best Day is expected out on October 21 [...]

Throwback Thursday: The Grey Album

Danger Mouse’s The Grey Album turned 10 earlier this year, and that just sort of weirds me out.  I vividly remember scoffing at any sort of possible legal action, participating in Grey Tuesday and then sharing the album as much as I could (like all real outlaws and difference-makers did, right?). What’s funny though, is [...]

Gloves (Video Premiere)

A week ago I had no idea there was a band in Austin called Gloves, and now here I am premiering a video for them.  Yes, our love has developed quickly, but it isn’t hard to explain – I just simply required no time at all to become rather attached to their really catchy, dance [...]

Raised Eyebrows: Rockpile (Randy)

Ju Ju Men: The Story Of Rockpile Rockpile were not just an extension of the pub rock established by Brinsley Schwarz (see my column on them here) in the early 70’s. The group would undoubtedly play an integral role in the UK new wave/punk scheme being hatched in the mid to late ‘70’s in England [...]

Interpol

The last two Interpol albums didn’t do anything for me at all (hell, I don’t even remember what singles were on them), but that’s not keeping me from being both excited and curious about the upcoming El Pintor.  It’s going to be rad!  I think.  Probably. In any case, the follow-up single to All The [...]

Quickdraw: Tennis, Free Time, Allo Darlin’, She Keeps Bees, This Will Destroy You

Music!  Enjoy. :Tennis – I’m Callin’:  I can’t say I ever expected Tennis to go full-on AAA pop, but here they are doing exactly that.  I like it, but it does feel a bit thin and I’m curious to see if I’ll tire of it quickly or if it’ll stick with me like so many [...]
