Cupid Deluxe – Blood Orange

Devonte Hynes dropped Cupid Deluxe last month, his second release of 80s electro-funk ballads under the name Blood Orange. Dripping with groovy bass-lines, bouncing synthesizers and Hynes crooning about heartbreak, Cupid Deluxe is a new breed of R&B. On the single, “You’re Not Good Enough,” a shiny guitar interjects a duet between Hynes and his real-life […]

A View Into Noise: The Blood Brothers Discography

The Blood Brothers’ career spanned ten years from 1997-2007. Seeing their change from This Adultery Is Ripe to their final studio full-length, Young Machetes, is nothing less than awe-inspiring (or at least really confusing if you missed an album along the way). Beginning in the throes of noise-punk with This Adultery Is Ripe (originally released […]

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, […]

The Sonic Youth Discography: An Album Primer

During their 30 year career, few bands were more influential and iconic than Sonic Youth. Rising up from the underground No Wave and post-punk scenes of late 70s/early 80s New York, the band was typified as indie-rock and noise-rock before the genres were even fully codified. In many ways Sonic Youth have come to define […]

Cate Le Bon’s Latest Mug Shot

 There are few albums that can simultaneously sound like the album your best friend recorded in her basement and be interesting, but Cate Le Bon’s Mug Museum finds that perfect mix between disharmony and harmony, between familiar and unexpected. Bouncing between a female rendition of Morrissey (the one from The Smiths’ debut album) and beachy […]

Son Lux Continues To Shine With Lanterns

Mix equal parts Sufjan Stevens, Jonsi, and Wild Nothing; add a splash of dense and rhythmic unpredictability, a touch of lyrical ambiguity, and a sprinkle of brooding strings. The result? Son Lux’s latest album, Lanterns. Son Lux seems to steal fragments not only from the aforementioned artists but also from a myriad of other sources […]

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. […]

Cults Cut Through The Static

  On their sophomore album, Static, Cults stick close to the duo’s neo-doo-wop sound. However, rather than rehash the same territory, Static carries with it a not so sugary edge. The music is still bright with an undeniable pop structure, and the lyrics are largely complicated (albeit saccharine) love songs. But the embellishments expand the […]
