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 […]

P.O.S. and Ceschi @ Riot Room

Without P.O.S., there wouldn’t be Death Grips or Clipping or anything on Anticon. The Minneapolis native is able to charge a line with such an intensity that even the most mundane sentiments, when spilling from his mouth, have a punch few MCs can match. Joining P.O.S. on stage will be Ceschi Ramos, who splices lightning […]

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 […]

The 10 track burner combines surfy riffs with noisy undercurrents for music that can simultaneously start a weekend night off right or set the mood to stay in and relax. Aesthetically, Lemon Memory bounces between grimy guitar work and […]

Allison Crutchfield, a member of Waxahatchee, P.S. Eliot, Swearin’, and other acts, has released her debut solo record, Tourist in This Town. Taking pages from the new brand of rocking singer songwriting ladies (think Courtney Barnett, think Cherry Glazerr in “Nuclear Bomb”), Crutchfield’s album is smart, messy, and absolutely infectious. Tourist in This Town begins […]

First Repressions: Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor

Before Donald Glover was singing about zombies as Childish Gambino, Lupe Fiasco was riding the L with brains on his brains. Before Tyler The Creator was skating and combining hip hop and skate culture, Lupe Fiasco was kicking and pushing through the streets of Chicago. Near its 10 year anniversary, the Chicago rapper’s debut is […]

Apocalipstick Now

Cherry Glazerr‘s latest release, Apocalipstick, has one of the best and most apt titles I have ever heard. From its first song to its final note, the album oscillates between upbeat and panic attack like a sunny stroll down chaos street in Endsville, USA. If you’re a fan of surf rock but want something darker, Apocalipstick is the […]
