Live Review: Lauris Vidal and Andy Shauf at The Drunken Unicorn, September 8

By Giles Turnbull If you thought drunken unicorns were thin on the ground, they weren’t badly outnumbered by the crowd as Andy Shauf took the stage. This was a great shame, because Andy, recently voted one of USA Today’s Pop Candy “Pop Five Canadian Artists You Should Be Listening To,” is a fine songwriter. In […]

CD Review: Lauris Vidal — Better Part; Playing The Drunken Unicorn, September 8

Lauris Vidal Better Part P Is For Panda By Giles Turnbull Lauris Vidal’s work is characterized by carefully sparse band arrangements, making his songs always sound fresh because of the space that seems to let them breathe.  His effective writing finds many different and interesting ways to do this from one track to the next.

Q&A with Steel Train; Playing Drunken Unicorn with Young Giant and Rachel Goodrich, July 12

By Alec Wooden It’s often no coincidence when a band releases an eponymous record a few releases deep into its discography (save Weezer. There’s nothing deep there … just a total loss of creativity – wait, did I say that out loud?). It’s also not rocket science unlocking the underlying meaning — a rebirth, a […]

CD Review: Venice is Sinking — Sand & Lines; Playing Drunken Unicorn on July 10 and The EARL on August 28

Venice is Sinking Sand & Lines One Percent Press Records By Scott Roberts Underscoring the fact that Sand & Lines, the hypnotically-dreamy third release from Athens quintet Venice is Sinking, was recorded live in the now sadly decimated-by-fire Georgia Theatre, the opening track “Sidelights” begins with a few warm-up drum hits, followed by some incomprehensible […]

MillionYoung Makes You Feel Like a Million Bucks at the Drunken Unicorn – June 12

MillionYoung (apparently not signed to Lil’ Wayne’s label Young Money) takes the ambient-electro sound we all love right now, covers it with refreshingly spacey vocals, and creates the soundtrack to a dream world you could dance in for days – or at least until last call. Somewhere inbetween Toro y Moi and Neon Indian, MillionYoung is a member of a growing […]

Harper Blynn Live at the Drunken Unicorn – June 6

Hailing from NYC, Harper Blynn are a folksy pop rock quartet, part Beatles part Wilco with twist of Simon & Garfunkel (at the very least one wicked Art Garfunkel ‘fro) and we’ve got a hunch they are about to be everywhere. With a recently released debut full-length Loneliest Generation, Harper Blynn are out doing what they do best (and better than […]
