Quickdraw: Icky Blossoms, Turbo Fruits, The Go! Team, Fred Thomas, Night Drive

Music!  Enjoy. :Icky Blossoms – In Folds:  I didn’t really connect with Icky Blossoms’ 2012 debut, but I’m all about this new single of theirs.  It’s a fantastic dance pop tune that pretty much dominated my weekend.  Mask is due out May 12 via Saddle Creek. :Turbo Fruits – Don’t Let Me Break Your Heart [...]

Movie Breakdown: My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn (Noah)

People are doing traditional-style reviews all over the web, so we decided to try something different.  In each “breakdown” we’ll take a look at what a film’s marketing led us to believe, how the movie actually played, and then what we learned from it all.  Read on! The Impression: Nicolas Winding Refn is a weird [...]

Built To Spill

I had planned on posting a Quickdraw today, but the new Built To Spill single is so fantastic (especially once it jumps into high gear) that I couldn’t justify not letting it have all your attention.  Who knew they still had it in them?  I can’t say that I did.  They haven’t put out anything [...]

Michael O. (Noah)

If you lived in San Francisco at a certain time (the garage-rock haven of the early 2010s) at a certain point in your life (somewhere between 25 – 35) and you were any sort of authority on music (I’m not, but hey we can dream of something besides all-you-can-eat swirl ice cream cones) you were [...]

Leon Bridges

It’s taken a little longer than I expected it would, but Leon Bridges has finally let loose a new song (listen to the previously released Coming Home and Better Man here).  It is, as if to make him even more endearing, about his mother, and it features a retro sound so warm and inviting that [...]

Quickdraw: Crocodiles, Peach Kelli Pop, Family Bike, Mat Shoare, East Cameron Folkcore

Music!  Enjoy. :Crocodiles – Crybaby Demon:  The press release for this track describes it as being “salsa-punk”.  Is that actually a thing?  Either way, I like it.  Good move by Crocodiles to record their new album in Mexico City.  Boys is due out May 12 via Zoo Music. :Peach Kelli Pop – Princess Castle 1987:  [...]

Guest Mix: Matt Shiv

This month’s Guest Mix is from my good pal Matt Shiv!  I met Shiv forever ago when he moved to Austin to continue working for WOXY.  The station, unfortunately, didn’t make it, but Shiv went ahead and stuck around since it would have been really difficult to move his record collection back to Cincinnati.  Enjoy.
