Cool, so I'm the only one that's digging the shoegazey/lower vocals then.

Kinda preferred Perfect Pussy's EP over the LP, but Meredith seems pretty rad and I can always respect anyone that loves good ol' KevDev.

Is this really that revolutionary?

Back in 2006, some kid in my 8th grade class told me The Format sounded like "a shitty emo opera and that I was an emo kid because I liked it." "Emo kid" was...

All it takes are infrequent slip ups and relapses to begin what is addiction "hidden for a few years". That's the scary part about heroin...people get clean for like half a year and, out of nowhere,...

Only stoked for HAIM. Those girls had a hell of a 2013/14, I wish they had a fighting chance though.

I had no idea my dad writes for Rolling Stone.

Sensory deprivation's an amazing way of getting into music. I messed up my eye this fall and had to put a cold compress on my eyes once a day for an hour, so I'd play records while I was lying back...

I mean, yeah, as shitty as Attila is, they knew music wasn't going to lead to a rapid financial success and suffered for a bit. And the only reason they had such common sense is probably from coming...

Okay, regardless of if they're good or not, sites like Alt Press (http://www.altpress.com/news/entry/this_band_made_136000_on_a_28_day_tour_and_still_lost_money) omitted those facts about their...

Hahahahaha, hotels and food expenses. C'mon, guys...network, sleep on people's floors, and make a lot of PB&Js. If you're a small indie band on the rise, it's not the time to act out your perceptions...

This is clearly the sound of a band dying to become a sleeper hit like Fun., yet there's still enough synthy quirkiness and personality I loved on the first LP that I'm absolutely rooting for them...

Ryan and Jon screwed up by leaving them. Brendon's carrying this as a successful solo pop act, albeit making music that pales in my opinion...

Spotify is not a complete evil, but one should hope there will be a more perfect platform that compensates an artist more fairly in the future. If it was remotely possible to pay an artist $.99 per...

This would be so much cooler but infinitely harder to manage if they picked smaller, yet still nationally touring bands than Tame Impala (although I absolutely love them)

Deer Tick is a great...

I looked up a picture of him...holy shit, completely unrecognizable from the Sugarcult days. Their last album came out eight years ago though, so it makes sense when you think about it. Fuck, I'm...

Awwwww yiss. Very curious to see if sounds anything like The Format or more like his relatively newish stuff (http://music.means.am/track/side-b-found).

Sorry to write a novel to your comment, but it isn't like a 9-5 job in the slightest. If we have to compare it to business terminology, being a musician is like running your own small business. Yes,...

I've been saying this since Speak Now, but I would love her to do a more subdued folk singer-songwriter record with some Appalachian influence kinda like what The Civil Wars used to do. I know it's...

Gave it a listen this morning, reminds me a ton of Tegan and Sara's Heartthrob. Both albums are monstrously catchy and signaled a change towards more straightforward synth-pop for both artists...

This. Gangsta Boo throws out some real uncomfortable lines about men, but it's just showing how most male rappers degrade women sexually without a thought. Actually one of my favorite parts of the...

This will likely sound anti-progression, but I'm just not really about the slower direction this band has taken with their music. Namely, John is far, far stronger shouting than being melodic with...

For an 8.5-rated record, you sure seem to point out way more negatives than positives here. I know, scores are secondary to a review's content, but based on the content, I don't feel any more...

Exactly. Ethan's become a great producer/arranger in his own right and Alice accentuates the primal edge to their apocalyptic-sounding electronic music perfectly. I fear they won't be able to hold up...

Is it weird that I kinda expected this kind of thing to happen with CC? They seemed too tumultuous as people to have a long-term band together, so I figured they'd make 2-3 albums tops and call it...
