Songs such as "The Bandstand," "Foot of the Mountain" and "Mother Nature Goes to Heaven" are instant a-ha classics: catchy keyboard lines, solid guitar accompaniment, and the best pipes to ever come out of Norway.

If Malcolm Middleton is anything, he's charming.

This is one of those odd bands that sounds so amazing on CD you wouldn't expect much from their live show, and so amazing live that you wouldn't expect the same intensity from a recorded product.

This is an act occasionally willing and able to dole out small packets of weird, contrasting with their standard workmanlike approach.

The Stone Foxes resurrecti the sweat-soaked power blues of the 1970s and mix it with late-'60s folk rock influences to bring back the true grit of rock 'n' roll.

Before you even begin to consider looking into the Delfields, you must ask yourself one very important question: How do you feel about the Shins?

I try to keep an open mind to prevent myself from falling into the trap of being the quintessential hipster who hates all country music except for Johnny Cash.

El Cielo firmly established Dredg as the cerebral, progressive/art rock outfit they seemed destined to become.

Being in a band is like being married to three girls at the same time. You have to make sure that you're all happy and not stepping on each other's toes, doing an equal amount of work in the house and all that kind of stuff.

More fizzy joys abound.
Wednesday, 22 July 2009 02:54It is stream of consciousness stuff. I will get a melody and go back and write some words. When it comes time to record and fill in the rest of the words it is interesting. What I was sort of saying/mumbling has a lot more meaning.

The album somehow feels lighter…as light as a record concerning dysmorphia, self-mutilation, mental hospitals, the beauty culture, the perils of consumerism, genetic engineering and neophobia could possibly be, that is.

Cee-Lo and Busta Rhymes must have had to kill off their last chunk of community service because guesting on this album is like promoting the idea that one should bathe his or her child in stagnant water.

Compared to Get Yr. Blood Sucked Out, Rose City seems more arranged, but to my brief, short-lived chagrin, less heavy.
