Sufjan and Sam Beam Holding Hands Waxing Nostalgic.

Tuesday, December 6th, 2005

What happens when two super indie folk pop heads unite and have a show in New York City? Did the walls of Webster Hall become so soaked with estrogen, they tenderized and fell in on themselves, leaving one humungous hipster oil spill into the streets of Manhatten, and thus ruining counltess others day as they […]

(Fixing) Kicking Television

Wednesday, November 16th, 2005

I went out and bought me that Wilco Live album everyone is talking about yesterday, and when I got home I was mostly pleased. Sounds a whole heck of a lot better than these bootlegs of live shows (duh) I’ve been clutching on to for the past few years. I had only one […]

Radio Dept.

Tuesday, November 15th, 2005

The Radio Dept. are back again, well they never really went anywhere, it just takes a long time for their albums and EP’s to float across the vast Atlantic Ocean, at least its not the Pacific. Anyway, I found another EP of theirs Pulling Our Weight, which was released fairly recently on the very […]

And one day the tail catches you.

Thursday, November 10th, 2005

Occasionally, ok at least once a month, I get really sort of disguisted with music. The trivialness of it all, I know I spend way too much time thinking about it, researching it, spending money on it. Probably better spent learning a computer language, investing in some sort stocks, or even reading a […]

A Lesson In Counting: Broken Social Scene Live

Friday, October 28th, 2005

So I went and saw those lovely Canadians do their thing in philly on Monday. I don’t know about you but everytime I see them my counting skills are improved greatly by the time I leave. “Oooh there’s 12 people on stage” …. “oh wait, there is 5 guitars” … “look two drummers and […]

Wolf Parade Gets Crashy

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

You see that little sign, that little guy is holding right there? Think about it for a second, I’m sure we are all guilty of it, especially in this bitter little hipster world we wrap ourselves around, but the first thing out of our mouths would most likely be a complaint. I am often […]

Sorry, but no new music today, check back tomorrow for a review of the Metric show from last night, also a some tracks from The Most Serene Republic a band that I find to be pretty good, though Pitchfork didn’t seem to like them too much. Speaking of Pitchfork, anyone see that review of My […]

Canada, Slowly Taking Over the World

Wednesday, October 5th, 2005

Begin internal monologue reassuring you that America is better than Canada:

Okay, everyone can stop with this Canada stuff now, we apologize for the whole “Blame Canada” thing if you would please stop reminding us how much “better” you are than us. I know you have the Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade, Metric, Neil Young, […]
