Dowsing – ‘It’s Still Pretty Terrible’

July 16, 2012


This came out ages ago, but after a quick search on the net, barely anyone seems to have posted about it so figured I may as well upload it.  Dowsing are a 5 piece pop/emo band signed to one of my favorite labels Count Your Lucky Stars.  Their previous effort ‘All I Could Find Was You’ was solid, […]

Tech Out the Dresser 12: Post-exam VIBES / R∂D R∂VE SELECTION to blaze, cruise and shake off them blues 2

May 31, 2012


I’m done with exams, and that means I don’t give a shit about anything for the moment except chilling, skating, making tunes, watching TV shows and finding a place to live next year. The end of exams also heralds the start of official laid-back party time, and DUH, you need fat ass tunes for that. […]

The Comas – ‘Spells’

December 7, 2011


New York’s The Comas never really lived up to expectations despite producing three albums of stellar indie pop before putting out 2007’s Spells. The fact that so few people picked up on these guys after that album is a damned shame, the tunes on this thing are worthy of SO much more attention… This album was my […]

Torche/Part Chimp – Split EP

November 14, 2011


Torche are undoubtedly one of my favourite bands; any release of theirs is enough to get my panties in a twist, so I was pretty psyched to hear about their split with likeminded UK noise rock lads Part Chimp. I’ve got to say I was a little disappointed when it turned out that Torche would […]

Girls – ‘Lawrence’

November 11, 2011


While I love their debut, Album, I’ve got to say I really wasn’t too impressed with Father, Son, Holy Ghost, throwback pop-revivalists Girls‘ latest record, which has both fans and critics alike foaming at the mouth, something which, for me, is inexplicable. All the more reason to be pleasantly surprised, then, about ‘Lawrence’, a limited single the band […]

Elvis Depressedly – ‘Disgraceland’

November 10, 2011


Musically, 2011 is turning out to be a pretty great year for Mat Cothran, though from what I’ve gathered that’s one of the few positive aspects to his life as he sees it. Regardless, he’s already put out two fantastic releases in the form of Blue Suicide, as Coma Cinema, and Goner as Elvis Depressedly. The guy is ridiculously productive […]

MIXTAPE: Raphael Bastek

September 7, 2011


It only seemed fitting that the next band I obsessively email until the point when a response is the only thing that will stop their inbox from over-flowing in order to get a playlist from should be Old Gray.  Their new album is definitely going to up there on my list of best of ’11, and […]
