Show Of The Week

There are so many good shows happening this week!  Normally, this makes things difficult for me when it comes to picking just one to feature, but it’s actually easy this time around because Protomartyr are playing Barracuda on Friday.  I’ve been downright obsessed with their new album, Relatives In Descent, and I just have to [...]

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

The month of October typically leads me to drop a list of Halloween classics to scare your friends away from your booze during that swanky costume party, but I decided since I had done it so many times already I would instead opt for shameless self-promotion. If you never noticed before, I host a show [...]

The Go! Team

Just the other week I spent some time listening to The Go! Team, and that left me wondering if they were done or whatnot.  Nope!  They’re still at it.  In fact, the act just announced a new album, Semicircle, and today I’m sharing its title track.  Naturally, it’s a joyous affair.  Here’s hoping they come [...]

Show Of The Week

You know who I’ve really been loving even more than usual in 2017?  Spoon.  Not only is their new album, Hot Thoughts, a real good one, but their live shows have been fantastic.  I’ve seen them four times so far this year, and in each set the band has been looser and more confident than [...]

Who Is She?

My head is still a little fuzzy from weekend one of ACL, so I got up this morning in search of something simple and catchy.  This led me to Who Is She?, a supergroup that features Julia Shapiro (Chastity Belt, Childbirth), Robin Edwards (Lisa Prank) and Bree Mckenna (Tacocat, Childbirth). They’re jangly and I really [...]

The Breeders

It would appear that The Breeders are legit back.  That’s neat.  I dig their new track, which is apparently a part of a 7″ series that will be rolling out this year.  Hopefully a new album is on the way as well.  Enjoy.

Show Of The Week

I’m excited about The Courtneys at the Mohawk tonight, Whitney at Antone’s tomorrow, and – of course – ACL this weekend, but the one show that’s really popping on the calendar for me this week is Chelsea Wolfe at the Paramount on Friday.  This, I imagine, is somewhat because I can’t go (dang it!), but [...]

The Rural Alberta Advantage

The Rural Alberta Advantage are set to roll out their new album, The Wild, on October 13.  I didn’t think there would be another single before its release (there’s already been three other ones), but the band just set one free.  It may be my favorite track that’s been put out so far.  Enjoy.

In Review: Fantastic Fest 2017

Hey friends, here’s what I saw at Fantastic Fest.  I caught 20 films!  I actually wanted to see 30, but I got hit with a sinus infection and it totally derailed me for most of the fest.  Still, I’m calling this year a win.  Read on. PS – You can check out which films won [...]

Hip Hop Hooray (Leah)

How nice of you to stop by in between debating how the NFL got linked with the military, donating to Puerto Rico, Houston, Florida, and Mexico, and wondering how our government is going to be embroiled in scandal next week!  Sometimes it feels like the apocalypse is speedily on its way to our door, which [...]
