Whalesong - Gateway cover

Review: Whalesong — “Gateway”

There are times when I stumble onto recordings that contain certain elements borrowed from my favorite musicians, all packaged in a cohesive whole. The latest EP from a Polish industrial metal band Whalesong is an example of just that. The first side of the EP starts off with huge chunks

Review: White Denim — “Side Effects”

Review: White Denim — “Side Effects”

Since White Denim’s fantastic and criminally underappreciated 2018 release “Performance” I’ve considered myself a pretty massive fan of the band’s music, even if I was late to the party. These guys have an invigorating blend of swirling, electrifying Psychedelia experimentation and accessible, chorus-heavy Classic Rock revival jams that I haven’t

Review: PUP — “Morbid Stuff”

Review: PUP — “Morbid Stuff”

PUP’s morose and delectable blend of The Menzingers and Pinkerton on this album is nothing short of pure candy to my ears. In my opinion, the strongest release they’ve come out with so far! These guys have quickly proven themselves as one of the most interesting and memorable bands of

Review: Periphery — “Periphery IV: Hail Stan”

Review: Periphery — “Periphery IV: Hail Stan”

Periphery is comprised of some of the most technically unprecedented and talented musicians in the entirety of all modern Metal music. Their guitarist Mark Holcomb isn’t far behind John Petrucci in my book “Who is my go-to answer for the best guitarist of all time” with his gorgeous riffing that

The Caretaker Everywhere at the end of time

Review: The Caretaker — “Everywhere at the end of time”

The core of the project is heavily inspired by the imagery of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, specifically the ballroom episodes. The idea of haunting sounds echoing from the 1920s is a very pleasing notion that manages to

Review: Mark Vernon — “Magneto Mori: Kilfinane”

Review: Mark Vernon — “Magneto Mori: Kilfinane”

“It’s an exploration of tape recording as a form of memory storage. Using a portable reel to reel tape recorder sounds from around the town were recorded onto the first side of the tape over a two day period — dripping rain, creaky gates, car mechanics, drainpipes, shops, church bells,

Review: Weezer — “The Black Album”

Review: Weezer — “The Black Album”

Weezer is the only band in existence that has a spot in my least favorite albums of all time. Though despite their obvious inconsistencies they have always integral to my musical personality. They’re an incredibly endearing, charming and memorable band that has released some amazing and genuinely timeless music over

Review: Cosey Fanni Tutti — “TUTTI”

The member of the revolutionary industrial pioneers Throbbing Gristle is back with a new musical endeavor. Cosey Fanni Tutti hasn’t released a solo effort in a long while, but she has been busy in various musical outfits with her husband Chris Carter (also of Throbbing Gristle), as well as authoring

Review: Panda Bear — “Buoys”

Review: Panda Bear — “Buoys”

The solo material of Noah Lennox, more commonly known under his moniker “Panda Bear”, is something I’m entirely new to, and went into with very little preconceived notions aside from what I’ve heard of Noah’s critical darling of a band, “Animal Collective”. What I got out of his newest release
