Show Of The Week

I’m out of play on the show-front this week, as Fantastic Fest will be eating up all of my time.  If I were available though, I’d definitely hone in on seeing Balmorhea.  The nice thing here is that there’s actually three chances to see them.  The first shot is Thursday night (with Will Johnson) at [...]

My Must-See Films At Fantastic Fest 2017

Oh my.  Fantastic Fest is here!  I usually like to somewhat blindly jump into the fest and let the films surprise me, but this year I decided to take a different approach and actually make myself a short list of movies that I have to see.  Below you’ll find those selections. PS – I used [...]

Julien Baker

Julien Baker’s new video for Appointments just made me realize that I never actually shared the single.  Grab your headphones and tissues before you hit play.  Her new album, Turn Out The Lights, is due out October 27.  Also, you’ll be able to catch her at Emo’s on December 18.  Enjoy.

Alex Lahey

I had a weekend full of drinking and whatnot, so the title of Alex Lahey’s new single feels rather appropriate today.  By the way, are you guys pumped for her upcoming album, I Love You Like A Brother (due October 6)?  Every single off of it so far has been really damn great.  Enjoy. PS [...]

Raised Eyebrows: Greatest Ladies (Randy)

Women are amazing. They offer a unique sensitivity and viewpoint to music that just can’t be matched by men. This month, I’d like to focus on some seminal female geniuses who have graced this planet with art that continues to look forward, inform, and inspire. Laurie Anderson Laurie Anderson is a brilliant artist/musician. Anderson’s music [...]

Destroyer

Destroyer (aka Dan Bejar) has readied a 12th full length, Ken (due October 20).  I don’t think I realized he had done that many, but I guess it makes sense with him having been at it since the mid-90s.  In any case, I love the new single.  Something about it is just really calming.  Enjoy. [...]

Movie Breakdown: mother!

Pre-Screening Stance: For a moment there it really seemed like director Darren Aronofsky was on his way to huge things.  Requiem For A Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler and Black Swan were all successive winners, and this propelled him into the running for big-budget films like The Wolverine (this eventually went to James Mangold) and [...]

Show Of The Week

There are a lot of great touring acts in town this week – Tei Shi, Broncho, GoldLink, Ben Folds – but the one that I think has to be tagged as must-see is Japanese Breakfast.  I really dig their 2017 release, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, and I can only imagine that its variety of [...]

Chelsea Wolfe

It just dawned on me that Chelsea Wolfe’s upcoming show at the Paramount is during ACL, which means it’s rather unlikely that I’ll be able to go.  Dang it!  On the bright side, her latest single is great and now I’m more pumped than ever to check out her upcoming album, Hiss Spun (due September [...]

Sports

I’m off of work today, and I plan on doing nothing.  Before the nothing begins though, I want to share a song from Sports.  It’s energetic and catchy and just all-around fantastic.  Enjoy. PS – The band has a 7″ coming on October 20 via Father/Daughter Records.

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

I love all kinds of metal. I could list the 50+ genres that we metal folk have come up with over the last three decades, but it would be wasted on the passive music consumer, simply because they don’t totally describe the nuances of any particular soundscape that a band creates (other than Djent, because [...]

Movie Breakdown: IT (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: I saw IT in 3rd grade a week after an arm break. I dreamt that Pennywise the Clown (the film’s villain) waited at the top of my childhood home’s stairs with an axe. It’s the only dream from my childhood (outside of a recurring one featuring Pinhead and a talking Buddha statue) that [...]

St. Vincent

You’d think after all these years (Marry Me came out in 2007!) that I’d be at least a little over St. Vincent, but nope, I’m still all in.  That Annie Clark is just the best.  Anyhow, below is the latest single off of her upcoming album, MASSEDUCATION (due October 13).  It’s an infectious one.  Enjoy.
