Inside Dave Van Ronk

With awards season on the horizon, there’s no doubt that you’ll be hearing and seeing a lot about the Coen Brothers’ latest creation, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis.’ Based very loosely on the life and times of Dave Van Ronk, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ explores what it was like to be in and around the folk scene of […]

A Christmas Album – Bright Eyes

If you’re shortlisting artists who would be better off avoiding a Christmas album, Conor Oberst in any of his musical dalliances would assuredly make an appearance. This is a fiery wisp of a man who once shouted about the President and God convening to decide “which convicts should be killed” and chuckled at the notion […]

Live at the Cellar Door – Neil Young

I’ve mentioned my cluttered car before. How worn-out Christmas service bulletins are strewn about, along with a plastic jade Buddah and an untold number of CDs. If I were to take count, I’d likely stop halfway through to listen to an album. Supposing I ever finish the Herculean task of taking stock of them all, […]

5 Guilty Pleasures – Steven Ervay

My guilty pleasures read a lot like a finger crossing a road map of America. There’s a diverse collection of 90′s, pop, awkward punk, and so on… So here they are, in whatever glory they hold. 5. My Own Worst Enemy As much as I love 90′s songs, I love 90′s compilation albums even more. […]

5 Guilty Pleasures – Paige Lockhart

My list of guilty pleasure songs just so happens to be comprised of my go-to karaoke jams. Drunken strangers don’t care about my music taste. I mean, they’re definitely laughing with me, right guys? 5. LeAnn Rimes – Blue Between the ages of eight and ten, I used my allowance money to pay for a […]

5 Guilty Pleasures – Jackson May

To call something a guilty pleasure would be admitting that I feel guilty about some of the music I listen to. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. But, I’ll admit, there are some genres and bands that definitely get some confused looks when I tell someone about them. 5. Dragonforce A few years […]

5 Guilty Pleasures – Brian Clifton

Let’s get down to it: I’m not always so hip with my music tastes. Sometimes, I just don’t want to think when I’m listening to music. We all do it (I hope). Anyway, here are some of my guilty music pleasures: 5) “Birthday Sex” -Jeremih: Listening to this while drunk rollerskating in Omaha was the […]

Sworn To The Dark: Why You Should Know About Watain

Watain, the black metal band from Sweden, have just released their fifth album The Wild Hunt, and what a record it is. It’s a continuation of Watain’s take on black metal – that is to say it’s quite melodic and brooding in parts – but the group is never afraid to unleash the beast within […]

Okkervil River’s ‘The Silver Gymnasium’

Okkervil River’s new album, The Silver Gymnasium, began streaming on NPR’s first listen yesterday morning, a week before its release date. It’s their seventh album, the first of which deviates from their concept albums rooted in fictional narratives. The songs are set in Sheff’s hometown, Meriden, New Hampshire, and explore an 80’s childhood into adolescence. […]

New Arrivals for the Week of 8/20

Highlights of the week: *Zola Jesus – Versions: The electronic/industrial chanteuse reinterprets some of her songs with the help of a string quartet and J.G. Thirwell (of Foetus) on this latest release. Rather than asking ‘e tu brood-ist’, diehard fans of Zola Jesus will be surprised at how her haunting vocals and atmospheric arrangements translate […]

New Vinyl Arrivals for the Week of 7/23

If you want these, we got ‘em:   * Tortoise – Millions Now Living Will Never Die (Reissue): The first generation post rockers get the reissue treatment for one of their best albums. The title is from a Jehova’s Witness pamphlet and the music sounds like it’s jazz from another planet. Check it out if […]
