https://youtu.be/ZBeW-qHD70c It legitimately feels like yesterday that The Novembers dropped their show-stopping "Today" EP, and here they are already beginning a new era in 2019 with a digital single that's drowned in the Nine Inch Nails influence. Not that I'm complaining. Bring on the new album!
https://youtu.be/oqND3_tf3tQ I was tipped off to this (thanks backstreetjoe!), and I've never felt more compelled to share a song. It's above and beyond magnificent, an experience right from the first second that builds and transports you to musical nirvana. Evadney really fuckin' did that.
released 2018, 3T entertainment. I was practically in full on hype mode for Mariah's fantastic "Caution" last fall, that it was easy for me to let some great music slip through the cracks. Iyla Blue released the "War+raindrops" EP back in October of 2018, and I've only just gotten to experience it. Magnificent is the... Continue Reading →
It was really really chilly and windy last night, proper weather for a night of dreamy tunes and reverb heavy guitars don't you think? I'd been looking forward to Ethereal Fest for some time, as a huge indie music fan with an obsession for the dreampop and shoegaze sound, it was right up my alley... Continue Reading →

The middle eight is particularly strong, a breakdown that builds upon itself (first with vocal, percussion and ambient synth, before bringing back the guitars) until exploding right back into the chorus.

There's no shortage of immediately memorable tracks, as the record hits you in the face with three back to back cuts (Trouble, Mother, Midnight) that don't miss... Continue Reading →
released 2018, 735654 records dk. Last weekend, I decided to kick off my year of shows with a stacked bill of local texas groups (Houston's Small Chair & Astragal, both faves of mine, and San Antonio's Vonna, who are also brilliant), and the only band I wasn't familiar with prior to was Mississippi's Goth Dad. ...

Houston's Small Chair is back with an airy, wistful cut of dreamy loneliness that would sound right at home soundtracking a romantic moment in a Gregg Araki film (and if you know me, you know I adore myself an Araki film). Stream "Our mural at the park" on Apple Music. Catch them live this Saturday... Continue Reading →
There are way too many versions/mixes/edits/what have you of this song out there, but I have a solid feeling even the most obsessive of music collectors haven't heard of this mix of BLT in particular. (Wow, I really just abbreviated Bizarre Love Triangle to a sandwich.) Exclusively released on the soundtrack album for "Married to... Continue Reading →
