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

The Hiraeth: Teenage Angst And Full-Grown Irony

Nocturnal Theory: What It Is To Be Human

The Caretaker Everywhere at the end of time

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

Leyland Kirby’s Caretaker project has been active for 2 decades at this point. 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
