Circa Survive Takes on 10 years

Anthony Green’s various projects (Saosin, The Sound of Animals Fighting, Circa Survive, etc.) were the soundtracks to my angsty teenage years. I remember seeing him with Saosin at The Beaumont Club. Between songs, the frontman began reciting a poem, slowly taking steps back. When Green had finished this recitation, he had backed up to the […]

There’s Always Money in The Flying Microtonal Banana Stand

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard cannot sit still. Just 10 months after their last album, Nonagon Infinity, the Australian group has released another album, Flying Microtonal Banana (and word on the street is they have five more album slated for 2017). So while we were all doing frivolous things–like “eating” or “sleeping”–these guys were in the studio […]

Shadow Band Loves The Wilderness

Shadow Band‘s first full length combines folk, psych, indie pop, and that certain sixties flair that makes their tones warm and their melodies full of hooks. Wilderness of Love is equal parts Comus, The Beatles, The Animals, and Temples–its melding of styles creates a listen that is as cohesive as it is surprising. Shadow Band […]

London O’Connor Circles the Triangle

There’s something rough and entirely genuine about London O’Connor‘s debut album, O∆ (pronounced Circle Triangle). The album is centered around uber-catchy bedroom pop with hip hop currents and ambient textures. In other words, O∆ is the perfect album for the exploratory feeling that hangs to springs emerging coattails. The album opens with “OATMEAL.” Feeling like undiscovered gem from […]

Grails and Chalices

Grails is not so much a band as a force. The Portland based outfit has branded themselves not with a sound or formula but with an intensity that stretches the continuum of their expansive releases. Whether the five-piece is skating down Middle Eastern melisma or churning out some doomy metal riffs, Grails focuses their whole […]

Aaron Abernathy Monologues

What happens when the sounds of Lauryn Hill, Curtis Mayfield, Macy Gray, and Aloe Blacc are combined? Aaron Abernathy. The Cleveland-born soul singer and multi-instrumentalist rides the same neo-soul aesthetic of Anderson Paak, Son Little, and Childish Gambino, but Abernathy does what these artists do and more in his debut, Monologue. Weaving together traditional soul, R&B, and […]

Kid Koala & Emiliana Torrini Drawn Together

Kid Koala is sort of an enigma. The DJ has made music for Deltron 3030, Gorillaz, Handsome Boy Modeling School, has been featured in soundtracks like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and The Great Gatsby, and has gone on solo tours with Radiohead and Bjork. The Canadian turntablist splits his aesthetic between more mainstream sounds […]

Psychedelic Electronics: Moon Duo’s Latest

Moon Duo is no stranger to making electronically thickened psych. Three albums deep into their career, the Portland band shows no sign of stopping their roll as evidence by their latest release, Occult Architecture Vol. 1. Basing their repeat-o-rock on spiritualist structures (think Aleister Crowley’s Dawn Golden), Moon Duo uses looped riffs to create magical atmospheres […]

Used and Improved: Gil Scott-Heron’s Pieces of A Man

Every Tuesday, Mills Record Company brings out a feast of used records, and in that feast are more than a few juicy morsels. When TUSEDay features some gems, I try to review them. In the past, I’ve written about Grant Green, Soundtracks, and the Lucifer Rising Suite. Now, I want to look at a record […]
