Ringo Deathstarr ...

Leave it to me to review an album by a band who already has a newer album out. Colour Trip was Ringo Deathstarr’s debut album, so by the time it was released they must have already been recording a new one. Way to not let your stuff get stale and further you’re catalog. So right...

Portugal. The Man &#...

In the Mountain In the Cloud is the Pacific Northwest band’s seventh album and first for major-label Atlantic. I had never heard a Portugal. The Man album before this one, and since listening to it I have checked out their older stuff. I said that because their previous label was Equal...

Zomby – Dedica...

Dedication is the second album for the dubstep/grime producer Zomby, and his first for 4AD. The easiest way to describe it in a way most people would understand is a slightly sped up Burial. I don’t think many Burial fans would have a problem with this album, but it doesn’t have...

Smith Westerns ̵...

Smith Westerns is an indie pop band from Chicago. Dye It Blond is their second album, and first for Fat Possum. It was released January 18th. Dye it Blonde is a great pop album. It reminds me of Supergrass a lot; these dudes must love Supergrass. It’s got a good jangly pop feel to it...

The Decemberists most recent album, The King is Dead, was released January 18th on Capitol Records. The Decemberists are definitely having a good year so far. Their new album is receiving a fair amount of critical acclaim, it was Billboard’s #1 album, and is currently Amazon’s #1...

Indian Jewelry ̵...

Indian Jewelry is a “noise” band from Houston, TX. Totaled is their fourth or fifth album (it’s hard to say because of name changes). It’s their second album on We Are Free and was released May 11th. (Yeah, a while ago.) It’s odd that for an album released by a...

How to Destroy Angel...

How to Destroy Angels is a new band consisting of Nine Inch Nails’ frontman Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, and Nine Inch Nails’ producer Atticus Ross. Their first EP was released free via e-mail today, June 1st. YAY: This 6-song EP is pretty much Nine Inch Nails(NIN)...

Massive Attack – Hel...

Massive Attack is an electronic duo. Heligoland is their fifth full-length album, and first since 2003. It was released February 9th. YAY : This album keeps the tradition alive of getting some great guest vocalists to appear on their tracks (I don’t really think this will ever not be...

Deftones – Dia...

Deftones is a rock band from Sacramento, California(if you didn’t know). Diamond Eyes is their sixth album, and first since a car accident left their bassist Chi Cheng in a coma. It was released May 4th. Chi isn’t back, but they had their friend Sergio Vega fill in for him on...
