Album Review: Teenage Cavegirl - Candy Cigarettes

Album Review: Teenage Cavegirl – Candy Cigarettes

...both sides of this record are natural unique cohesive noise; it did not come by accident. When Teenage Cavegirl someday find themselves listed in the annals of that which kept the dream alive in those back-building years of Austin, remember to remind your kids they did not get there by accident, they earned it, Candy...

New Video: Teenage Cavegirl – “Space Girl”

Jesus Christ, someone send this video to every confused twelve year old before they mistakenly subscribe to Guitar World and start off down that disappointing path of Incubus respect which somehow leads to Steve Vai. There is room in this town for every facet of cool but if you are going to try, you...

New Music: Tacocat - "Hologram"

New Music: Tacocat – “Hologram”

"Hologram" speaks to how our vantage point in life changes inescapably with time while the results of the finite feeling beneath it all remains the conclusion regardless of our ever shifting inner-zeitgeist. We find as the song develops the message to be solace found by accepting the idea of being ineffectual or complacent as largely...
The Tough Shits - Burning in Paradise

The Tough Shits – Burning in Paradise

The Tough Shits have me once more daydreaming of owning an El Camino just so I can blast this album on repeat blazing across west Texas on the way to California. Overall verdict: Burning in Paradise must be immersed in, an experience as a whole which rises above all condescending criticism, it magnetizes in waves...
Andrew Cashen - "Frank Sinatra's Yacht"

Andrew Cashen – “Frank Sinatra’s Yacht”

Kerouacian in the finest most brilliant sense, "Frank Sinatra's Yacht" reads somewhere between coming down out of the mountain in Desolation Angels and saying goodbye to the mice in Big Sur; every line, every note owning us as Andrew Cashen cries out to eternity, "what I do now next? Chop wood?."

Gooch Palms – New Single “Are We Wasted?” – SXSW 2019 – Tour Dates

Gooch Palms new single "Are We Wasted?" further solidifies our suspicions towards the Aussie tradition of baking up tasty snacks that are the perfect blend of colorful sweetness we somehow manage to look cooler by eating. Something weird has been going on down in Australia for a while now, something is up we can...

Album Review: Harlem Puts Us To Sleep With Oh Boy

Had this been their first album it would have been fine, a stepping stone not so much listened to by anyone but still exists in the background, a reminder of where they came from. As an album this far into the game, as something they have arrived at, Oh Boy sounds about as good as...

Missing Pages: Long Way Down and a Love Letter To Stephen Svacina
