Quickdraw: Honeyblood, Aan, Tony Molina, Dirty Projectors, Mono

Music!  Enjoy. :Honeyblood – Sea Hearts:  I’m all about this new one from Honeyblood.  As its press release says, it’s “dangerously addictive”.  More please.  Babes Never Die is due out October 28 via FatCat. :Aan – Hollywood Buyout:  Aan have apparently been around for about a decade, but this is my first time hearing them.  [...]

Movie Breakdown: The Magnificent Seven

Pre-Screening Stance: I don’t believe anyone asked for a remake of The Magnificent Seven, but one has arrived.  It’s directed by the solid Antoine Fuqua, and it has a high quality cast that consists of Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Pete Sarsgaard and more.  My guess is that it’s going [...]

Cherry Glazerr

Today I’m rolling out the latest song from Cherry Glazerr.  It’s the trio’s first single via their new label, Secretly Canadian, and I’m into it.  To be honest though, I didn’t start out a fan of the track.  When I first gave it a listen I thought it sounded like a band who’s trying too [...]

Show Of The Week

There are a lot of great shows happening this week. A lot.  And I’m admittedly pretty excited about most of them, which means that it’s difficult to pick just one gig to recommend.  So, here’s what I’m going to do – list one show that’s local, and one that isn’t. Local Pick Of The Week:  [...]

Patience

In case you missed it, Roxanne Clifford (from the great Veronica Falls) has been releasing music as Patience.  Back in May she put out a very pleasant track called The Church, and she’s now following it up with … well, a very pleasant track.  This is a trend that I’m willing to fully get behind.  [...]

Tony Molina

Tony Molina jumped onto my radar back in 2014 with his very swift (it’s just under 12 minutes long), very Weezer-esque LP Dissed And Dismissed, and I’ve been championing him ever since.  No one writes a better 45 second song than him!  Granted, I don’t really know of anyone else that purposely keeps things that [...]

Movie Breakdown: Blair Witch (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: Say what you will about remakes and sequels and prequels and all the other shit Hollywood is heaving on to the screens these day, but I’m excited for a new journey into the Black Hills of Burkittville, Maryland. It’s a great, unexplored world to toy with and director Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The [...]

Kim Gordon

“Whoa.”  This is what stumbled out of my sleepy head this morning when I first listened to Kim Gordon’s new single.  Her voice is a commanding force throughout it, and I really dig the swirling, sloppy arrangement.  I hope Kim has more of the same coming soon.  Enjoy. :Kim Gordon – Murdered Out: The Murdered [...]

Show Of The Week

The ageless wonders known as Dinosaur Jr. will be playing ACL Live on Friday!  Since reuniting in 2005, the band has released four pretty damn good albums (one of them – Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not – just came out this year) and it doesn’t look like they plan on slowing down anytime [...]

Wavves

First of all, sorry for the wonky posting schedule that’s been in play here at SOTO for the last month or so – I’ve been out of town a lot.  That’s all done now though (for a while anyways), so hopefully I can get things back to normal. Now, about today’s music, it’s a Weezer [...]

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

Once Summer ends for many it feels like back to the grind, but for metal folks this is when things start to feel right. Personally, I don’t feel right with that much sunshine and happiness, I yearn for the dark, the short days and long nights, the chill on the wind and the sounds of [...]

Movie Breakdown: Sully (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: Let me be frank: I don’t love Clint Eastwood. Outside of his political stances, I feel like Eastwood has been resting on his laurels for much of my adult life. The man hasn’t produced a film in years that isn’t marred by a bad script and lazy directing. Though the trailers for Sully [...]

Zack De La Rocha

Well well well, it would appear that Zack de la Rocha may actually be set to release a solo album.  Finally!  I feel like I’ve been waiting decades for it, so I hope it’s a legit thing that’s going to happen.  Today’s song is the first taste off of the supposed album that he’s readied, [...]

Show Of The Week

I’m so very excited to see Joanna Newsom (with the also great Alela Diane) at ACL Live tonight.  She’s responsible for my favorite live performance of all-time (you can read a poorly written, early-days-of-the-blog entry on it here), and I’ll never miss an opportunity to see her play. With that being said, I know Joanna [...]
