Beach Fossils

beachf

If you’re hoping to start the week with something that’s easy on the ears, then you’re really going to be thrilled with today’s Beach Fossils track.  The pleasant pop tune is called This Year, and it’s off of the band’s upcoming album, Somesault (due June 2 via Bayonet).  I advise that you leave it on [...]

Land Of Talk

LOT

Good news!  After a bunch of long years away, Elizabeth Powell has put together a new Land Of Talk LP.  It’s called Life After Youth, which may be the most perfect name for a comeback album ever, and it’s due out May 19 via Saddle Creek.  The first single is a slow burning gem.  Enjoy.

Diet Cig

Diet-Cig-1484231359

At this point I’ve declared my love for Diet Cig about a million different times, so I think I’ll just skip that part this time around.  Below is their new single!  Also, here’s a fun fact – I’ve heard their upcoming album, Swear I’m Good At This (due April 7 via Frenchkiss), and I can [...]

Movie Breakdown: Logan

logan

Pre-Screening Stance: It’s pretty crazy that Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine since 2000.  That’s a nearly 20 year run!  I’m honestly sad to see him call it quits, but at least it seems as though he’ll be going out with a bang via the gnarly looking Logan. Post-Screening Ramble: In general, you’re going to [...]

Show Of The Week

ShowOTWF

I can’t claim to have ever found myself particularly attached to any of Deafheaven’s album, but I do really like them live and I think you should see them at the Mohawk tomorrow.  The band puts out an enormous wall of sound, and it’s rad to watch and just sort of get lost in it.  [...]

White Reaper

wr

Here’s hoping you’re ready to spend the day air guitaring and strutting around, because that’s exactly what the new track from White Reaper is going to inspire you to do.  I’m now feeling rather sure that their upcoming album, The World’s Greatest American Band (due April 7 via Polyvinyl), is going to be a great [...]

Jay Som

JS

Maybe I was in a weird mood or just not paying attention, but I didn’t really catch onto Jay Som the first time a track from her found its way into my inbox.  Baybee though, which is her latest single, is captivating as hell and I can’t get enough of it.  Groove it with the [...]

Movie Breakdown: Get Out (Noah)

go

Pre-Screening Stance: Jordan Peele is a very, very funny guy. He’s also an enormous horror fan. Seeing what he can do with a racially-tinged horror film about a black guy going to meet his girlfriend’s white parents has been a delightful bit of anticipation. Post-Screening Ramble: For anybody, the ritual of going to meet your [...]

Movie Breakdown: Get Out

Film Title: Get Out

Pre-Screening Stance: Jordan Peele’s Get Out looks like it’s going to be a blast, but occasionally I remind myself that his Keanu was a big fat dud and then I wonder if I’m just being wooed by a well crafted trailer.  WE SHALL SEE. Post-Screening Ramble: Get Out is a wild little ride.  The film [...]

At The Drive In

drivein

It’s so weird to me that there’s a new At The Drive In album coming.  Perhaps it’s due to the way the band bowed out just as they were starting to take off, or maybe it’s because most of its members exited the breakup and had successful side projects, but I just figured they wouldn’t [...]

It took them a solid handful of years to do it, but the good people in Black Books have finally assembled a new album, and this Saturday at the Mohawk they’ll be celebrating its release.  I got to hear all of Can’t Even a while back, and it’s a good one.  Don’t miss the show! [...]

Parquet Courts

Parquet

Late last week I got an email about a new Parquet Courts track with Bun B, and I feared that maybe the band had jumped the shark.  Nope.  It’s definitely a weird tune, but I really dig it.  Can’t say I want more of the same, though.  I hope it remains a random little one-off [...]
