Area Codes: 916 – Sacramento, CA

A prominent narrative going into CMJ this year was the surge in the popularity of hardcore music, and at the forefront of that discussion was Sacramento’s Trash Talk. Though Trash Talk have been together, and been very good, for a number of years, they pretty much stacked paper at CMJ, from a press clip standpoint. More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We’re on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers’ (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

Under The Influence: Deafheaven Roads To Judah

Deafheaven’s Roads To Judah came up a few times in the comments of my Top 26 Metal Albums Of 2011 So Far. With reason. The San Francisco group’s gorgeous 4-song, 38-minute full-length debut blends pretty Godspeed shoegaze and urban West Coast black metal shredding into epic dispatches of cascading romantic agonizing bolstered by hardcore fist… More »

Chelsea Wolfe – “Movie Screen” (Stereogum Premiere)

We recently posted L.A. “doom-folk” songwriter Chelsea Wolfe’s “Mer” along with Richard Phillips’ “Moses“-scored Sasha Grey short. Here’s the mesmerizing, atmospherically deep “Movie Screen,” another gem from the Burzum-covering artist to watch’s great new record Ἀποκάλυψις, the studio followup to last year’s The Grime And The Glow. Fittingly, it arrives toward the end of summer. More »

Chelsea Wolfe – “Mer” & Soundtracks Sasha Grey

We called Burzum-covering, PJ Harvey-evoking “doom-folk” chanteuse Chelsea Wolfe someone to watch in 2011. Please do: In August, the Californian’s following 2010’s excellent homespun The Grime And The Glow with the even stronger studio-recorded Ἀποκάλυψις (pronounced “apokalypsis”). Here’s the album’s second track, “Mer.”… More »

32 Must See Bands @ SXSW 2011

Come March every year, the same questions are asked, retreaded thought pieces get pitched: What does it mean to have a music industry festival in the decrepit climate of 2011?

A Few Chelsea Wolfe Originals (And A Burzum Cover)

L.A.’s Chelsea Wolfe composes fractured, noisy, abstract, experimental and exploratory gothy doom-folk that reminds me a bit of Portal Of Sorrow, Marissa Nadler’s collaboration with Xasthur. Maybe Zola Jesus, at least in some overall “vibe,” when she goes for the windswept. Or, weirdly, the much missed Flying Canyon. Her work, which she’s called “spiritual realm… More »
