Menace Beach Hands You Lemon Memory

This week is full of fantastic new releases and reissues. One of those is from Menace Beach. 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 is No Tourist in This Town

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 […]

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 […]

The xx Sees You

Something is in the water, and that something is helping musicians makes some echo-ringing sad pop albums. James Blake, Bon Iver, and even Frank Ocean did it. Now, The xx joins their ranks with I See You. The trio’s latest album is a collection of mellow, glacial pop ballads that focus on the ins and outs of […]

Lil Kim Gets Hardcore

There was a beautiful time in the mid- to late 90s when hip hop, RnB, and pop came together seamlessly. At the center of this was Lil Kim‘s debut album Hard Core. The Queen Bee’s album marries the hard edged aesthetic/persona that accompanies many rappers with the controlled and unabashed use of her sexuality. Like a […]

First Repressions: blink 182

With the vinyl resurgence comes a desire to have the records that came out in very limited quantities or not at all on wax. And if you ever wanted a record that came out when vinyl was not as popular, you know there are two ways: pay large sums for those titles or wait for […]

Abra: Princess — The Duchess of Darkwave writes songs on her computer then releases them on Periscope. And I’m okay with that. Physic Heat: […]
