Luster | High Class Beats

Written by Laura Hamlett Sunday, 14 March 2010 00:00

Chicago is very clique-y, too, but I don't think it’s so much among the bands as it is among the people buying the tickets.

   

Morning Benders | Big Echo (Rough Trade)

The Monitor is without question the work of a maturing band.

 

Past Lives | Tapestry Of Webs (Suicide Squeeze)

| Print |

Written by Joe Witthaus Tuesday, 09 March 2010 16:29

Spot-on guitars and almost addictive solos that seem to beckon for a second listen also mesh will with the best parts of Past Lives.

   

The Constellations | Southern Gothic (Virgin)

| Print |

Written by Brett Berliner Tuesday, 09 March 2010 16:03

Even with a lot of vulgar lyrics, it never sounds too off putting because everything here is really catchy.

 

Murder By Death | Good Morning, Magpie (Vagrant)

| Print |

Written by Courtney Rau


 Monday, 08 March 2010 12:23

Each indivdual song is its own tableau of drunken regret, hopeful longing, and bittersweet realization.

   

Sound Tribe Sector 9 (STS9) | 3.19.10 & 3.20.10

| Print |

Written by Corey Woodruff Friday, 05 March 2010 18:37

The conversations between sessions were often about intrigue and espionage so that vibe seeped into the record a bit.

 

Black Gold | Sounds About Right

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Wednesday, 03 March 2010 23:45

I think that the greatest lesson is really just how to maintain a relationship and how to keep the above point alive in a healthy way so you can really get down to business and make some music.

   

Magnetic Fields | A Study in Opposites

Will Kimbrough | Wings (Daphne Records)

| Print |

Written by Jim Dunn Friday, 26 February 2010 22:24

What is nice about these expressions is that they never sound forced or false, Kimbrough sounds happy, content..dare I say blessed?

 

Joe Firstman | El Porto (Firstman Music, Inc.)

| Print |

Written by Jim Dunn Friday, 26 February 2010 21:17

The storytelling is sweet, the presentation is earnest, and you could easily imagine Joe sharing a beer and a few laughs with you in between sets at the club.

   

Social Hero | The Famous (Machine Dream Records)

| Print |

Written by Jim Dunn Friday, 26 February 2010 21:01

And I mean this as a compliment, there is some serious 70s love going on here that reminds me of some Journey, maybe a bit of Queen, and, God help me, Styx.

 

Celebration Day | Bringin’ It On Home

| Print |

Written by Amy Burger Wednesday, 24 February 2010 15:21

Although he admits it’s a lot of work and a lot of fun, Pessoni doesn’t see Celebration Day turning into a week-long El Monstero-type run. “But we do try to add some new songs each year to make things different for the returning fans.”

Johnny Cash | American VI: Ain't No Grave (American)

Written by Laura Hamlett Saturday, 20 February 2010 17:48

Each of the five members pulls his weight perfectly, delivering an attention-grabbing performance and generating his share of infectious energy.

 

The Paperclips | Please Tell Your Loved Ones… (s/r)

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Saturday, 20 February 2010 17:45

Here, the length of a syllable is just as important as a guitar riff; time is irrelevant, meant to be bent to your will.

   

Eikon | Careful Hands/Steady Hands (s/r)

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Saturday, 20 February 2010 17:42

At just four songs it’s woefully short, and even those four songs don’t quite know what to make of themselves.

 

Proud Simon | Anchors Aweigh (s/r)

| Print |

Written by Mike Rengel Friday, 19 February 2010 20:06

But with each subsequent spin, despite my best efforts to stop it doing so, the disc got under my skin a little bit more.

   

Spoon | Transference (Merge)
