Photos: Jessie Ware @ The Chapel, San Francisco 10/21/14

By Miles Bowe / October 22, 2014
Jessie Ware has made major pop music strides with her second album, Tough Love, but it pays off, as Tom explained in his review when he called it "an example of how hard this soft-pop can kick you in the gut when it’s done just right." Last night, Ware played her album-release show i… More »

Rave Of Thrones: A Night With DJ Hodor At House B.B. King

By Ryan Leas / October 13, 2014
There are few things that would convince me it's a good idea to go to Times Square on a Friday night. Let alone the Friday preceding what is, for some people, a long weekend; the area seemed extra clogged with drunken tourists this past Friday. And, hey, that's good for them, it's just not where… More »


Aphex Twin Albums From Worst To Best

By Patric Fallon / October 10, 2014
As any dyed-in-the-wool Aphex Twin fan worth their weight in trivia answers will tell you, there's really no such thing as a bad album written by Richard D. James. Sure, some are better than others, and there are probably some you don't even like that much. But a bad record from modern electronic music's preeminent… More »


Ariel Pink @ Baby’s All Right, Brooklyn 10/2/14

By Miles Bowe / October 3, 2014
Last night -- or more accurately very early this morning -- Ariel Pink performed the live debut of his upcoming double album pom pom. It was an exciting night, not just because of how good the album is, but because you never really know what to expect with this guy. The Ariel Pink on recording… More »

The Kinks Albums From Worst To Best

By Timothy & Elizabeth Bracy / September 24, 2014
In some ways, the story of the Kinks feels familiar: In 1962, four working-class London teenagers besotted with American R&B and country music unite. Their initial creative exertions hold a thrilling mirror back to their inspirations overseas, supercharging the sounds of Little Richard, Hank Williams, and the Ventures with the riveted anxiety of a post-war… More »

By Miles Bowe / September 23, 2014

XTC Albums From Worst To Best

By Robert Ham / September 15, 2014
Of all the bands that emerged from the British post-punk scene, XTC has been one of the hardest to pin down. You could peg them as an '80s dinosaur whose most recognizable tracks pop up on cut-rate compilations of new wave or classic alternative rock. Or they could slot into an adult alternative playlist, to… More »

By Chris DeVille / September 12, 2014
We've long heard tell of a new Panda Bear album tentatively titled Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper. Now it's looking like the actual title is Panda Bear Vs Grim Reaper -- at least that's what's implied by PBVSGR, a new website where you can stream a new mixtape assembled by Noah Lennox… More »

Wilco @ LC Pavilion, Columbus 9/3/14

By Chris DeVille / September 4, 2014
"We haven't played in about a year," Jeff Tweedy smirked, "so you guys are getting us fresh." It's true; the concert Wednesday in Columbus was Wilco's first of 2014, and at first it felt like a dusting off. They began with a batch of their oldest tunes -- "Misunderstood," "Forget The Flowers," and "Passenger Side"… More »

By Miles Bowe / September 3, 2014
Earlier this summer, Interpol announced their fifth album, El Pintor, and began dropping singles including the opener "All The Rage Back Home" and "Ancient Ways." They sounded like the Interpol we've always known preceding an album that stuck to what they've always done, something Chris examined in depth in his recent… More »


Made In America Philadelphia In Words & Photos

By Ryan Leas / September 2, 2014
Made In America has always struck me as an odd festival. In these still early years for the event, it's a somewhat small entity. Two days as opposed to others' four or five, or others' double weekends; four stages in somewhat close quarters on a shut-down Benjamin Franklin Parkway; a lineup of a size where,… More »
