Zeds Dead have sold out massive venues over the last year but they are...

There is a lot that can be said about Green Velvet, he does, after...

  • Beacon is releasing their LP, Escapements, on February 5th, their first release since 2014. The new LP features the band’s popular single “Preserve” and the recent release “IM U” in addition to other tracks with the same mood and similar tonal value. Beacon does not stray much from their previous work or style with Escapements, but does provide something […]

  • February 5th, 2016, will see UK-based duo, Letherette, release their first new music since 2013’s self-titled debut album on Ninja Tune. Refresh is a four-track EP that delivers warm dancefloor fillers. This EP doesn’t hold back and from the get-go, Letherette unleashes stomping beats with “Rayon”. This is a track (along with the rest of the EP) […]

  • Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus collaboration Junior Boys has been on a brief hiatus. The electro-pop pair haven’t released an album since 2011’s It’s All True, and have spent the last five years working on personal projects with other hot Canadian acts like Caribou and Jessy Lanza. Hailing from Hamilton, Ontario, Greenspan and Didemus have […]

  • Revolution is not a term that should be tossed about like a plastic toy football in the lexicon of modern democratic society. However, one would need to be exceptionally tone-deaf to not notice the rising dissatisfaction among international popular culture. In Ukraine, Spain, and Arab countries, protests erupt with previously unheard of regularity. In the […]

  • What does it mean to be “loud”? What does a “loud” band sound like? There’s the obvious definition, which is it’s a group that’s turned their amplification to eleven – but that’s not really the music, that’s the machinery. “Loud” is an intrinsic value, a definition. Most rock ‘n’ roll is implicitly loud, but that […]

  • Romare Projections Projections is one of the early 2015 releases (02/23) but even with the months gone by it’s an album that has a consistently growing number of plays in my iTunes. Romare (cover image) is influenced by Romare Bearden, a well-known cut’n’paste artist/collagist, and that influence comes through vividly in Projections. The album is […]

  • Adrian Underhill is an intelligent and soft-spoken Toronto-based indie artist. Over the last year or so, Underhill has been quietly working on a new release since 2014’s Gone For Too Long. In anticipation of his upcoming first full-length album, we caught up with...

  • In a nutshell, Steven A. Clark is a North Carolina-born Miami-based R&B artist. Earlier this year, Clark released The Lonely Roller, a full-length album that goes through a series of relationship stories. Sounds pretty typical, but it’s not. The album...

  • My interview with Glass Lux started out the best way possible: in a basement with a bottle of tequila. The band was extremely friendly and I am thrilled that I got to sit down with them. As it turned...

  • Having just recently released their self-titled debut EP, Caveboy, a indie pop trio from Montreal, are on tour through Canada and the US. The first few shows took as part of the CMJ marathon in NYC, we thought it would be...

  • I have a new favorite band and they’re called Landshapes. Composed of Jemma Freeman, Heloise Tunstall-Behrens, Luisa Gerstein, and Dan Blackett, Landshapes creates indie rock songs that are energetic, melodic, and hypnotic. Having released their second album, Heyoon, via...

  • Jimmy Vallance and Tom Howie, AKA Bob Moses, are one of those music duos who walk the fine line between band and electronic music. Their dark, emotion-filled lyrics run over equally dark, precise beats coupled with organic instrumentation, a combination that...
