Live Review: CocoRosie at Variety Playhouse, September 21

[ 0 ] September 24, 2010 |

Andy Shauf Waiting For The Sun To Leave P Is For Panda By Giles Turnbull Andy Shauf is the quietest man in the world, probably. But he grew up listening to Napalm Death, Slipknot and the sounds of monster trucks playing tug of war with bungee cord — maybe. He’s also definitely been voted one […]

CD Review: Underworld — Barking

Underworld Barking Om Records By Giles Turnbull Underworld has been one of the pioneers of electronic dance music for around 20 years. Their early albums were vast in their imagination; sometimes you wished that tracks comfortably exceeding 10 minutes could be a little less epic!

of Montreal False Priest Polyvinyl Records By Scott Roberts On their 10th full-length release False Priest, goofy, but often brilliant, Athens-based band of Montreal and their musical guru Kevin Barnes have temporarily set aside a generous portion of their obvious love of ’60s psychedelia to make way for their inner Prince and Bowie.

Elizabeth & The Catapult The Other Side Of Zero Verve Forecast By Giles Turnbull Elizabeth & The Catapult’s debut album, Taller Children, received much praise, and deservedly so; it’s part-folk, part-indie, slightly jazzy nature was lively, and at times mischievous, which made it stand out from other female-fronted indie pop offerings.

Philip Selway Familial Nonesuch By Al Kaufman You know a band has made it big when its drummer releases a solo CD. Seriously, can anything else explain Ringo Starr’s recording career? Radiohead is that big, but drummer Phil Selway is no Ringo Starr. That is to say Selway has actual musical talent.

Live Review: Sharon Van Etten at 529, September 14

[ 0 ] September 17, 2010 |
