Cursive – I Am Gemini

Cursive is a band that is no stranger to the concept album. They have put out some of the best concept albums the indie world has ever heard, starting with 2000's Domestica. Their current release I Am Gemini brings out a much heavier version of Cursive than has been heard in a long time. This Read More

Lilacs & Champagne – Lilacs & Champagne

Imagine you're a Noir P.I. gagged, bound and blindfolded being dragged to the top of a volcano by men in tribal masks and body paint to be sacrificed to some pagan god. Bruised, bloody and tired but still fighting up to your last few moment before being dropped to your molting end. Or maybe Read More

Arcade Fire – Reflektor

Years down the line, critics and listeners alike might look back on 2013 as the year of mysterious, ridiculous pre-release promotion. Few eras have some of the biggest acts of the time teased their new music so extensively and tortuously. Other equally respected artists have proven such strategies unnecessary: Radiohead’s most recent two albums were Read More

Don Dilego – Western & Atlantic EP

In the age of bandcamp, myspace, and endless access to digital music, the wilderness for the singer/songwriter is becoming more ominous. That is to say, making a memorable album, one that survives being shuffled into an iTunes library and can endure playlists of favorite songs with the decisive next button, is becoming increasingly difficult. It Read More

Florence + the Machine – Ceremonials

Sing-to-your-soul kind of women empowering, gospel church music is Florence + the Machine’s follow-up album to their 2009 mega hit Lungs; Ceremonials displays the vocal superiority of lead singer Florence Welch and creative instrumentals of her band mates Robert Ackroyd, Christopher Lloyd Hayden, Isabella Summers, Tom Monger, and Mark Saunders. Welch’s vocals never ceases to Read More

HEALTH – ::Disco2

Odd and titillating are about the ways I could describe HEALTH’s 2010 remixed album ::Disco2. ::Disco2 is the remixed version of their 2009, second full-length album Get Color and also features a new track by HEALTH called “USA Boys.” Read More
Vieem Music cover


After being contacted by the singer/songwriter Vieem I was surprised by how much I was able to enjoy and relate to her music. A little bit pop and a little bit gospel, Vieem certainly has some pipes on her. Generally speaking the lyrics to her three current tracks ("Why A Reason", "Amidst the Mist", and Read More

deadmau5 – >album title goes here<

The now widely known Canadian electronic powerhouse, known to the general public as deadmau5, has released his sixth record entitled >album title goes here<. The album is a wildly different approach to the world of electronic/trance music than what listeners have heard on the previous albums. The only question one may ask is this: is Read More

Fencewalker – Mourning the Whale

Folk music without the stereotypical vocal twang is what Fencewalker brings to the plate with her EP Mourning the Whale. Her vocals may lack the overall classic folk twang but her musical backing is true blue folk (AKA there is some banjo goodness in a good number of the 8 songs on the album). Fencewalker Read More
Walk the Moon – Walk the Moon Music cover

Walk the Moon – Walk the Moon

In the world where hipsters are the new frat boys and indie rock has gone mainstream, Walk the Moon is in their true niche. It could even be fair to say that this band is the conclusive link between the two. Maybe it’s harsh, but some bands just make you want to pump that fist Read More
