Album Review: Buried Beds – “Tremble The Sails”

Over the past few years the airwaves have been flooded with indie rock duets. The partition keeping the distinctive qualities of each act apart has blurred as the indie-folk genre has become increasingly popular amongst television commercials. I find with many of these duets, the band creates an intriguing sound that is worthy of a […]

Catching Up With: Jake Mann + The Upper Hand — “Parallel South” (Crossbill)

San-Francisco based Jake Mann + The Upper Hand‘s Parallel South, released January 18th, is the band’s latest since 2007’s Daytime Ghost. The Sacramento News described Daytime Ghost as “a cornucopia of sonic film footage”.

Video of the Week Double Shot: Little Tybee — “History” (Paper Garden)

We know, we know, TWO “Video of the Week” features in the same week? And from the same band?

Live Review: Morgan Taylor’s Gustafer Yellowgold – Eddie’s Attic, Atlanta, GA, 9-26-10

Within the intimate confines of Eddie’s Attic, a packed crowd of pre-teens and their parents sat mesmerized. The object of their fascination? A man on stage strumming an acoustic guitar, standing next to a large, white-light-rimmed screen splashed with the colorfully animated main attraction, known as Gustafer Yellowgold. This is alt-rock for the K-4 set, […]

Album Review: Miniature Tigers “FORTRESS” (Modern Art/ILG)

If the movie Garden State had been made today, Miniature Tigers would be the band playing on Natalie Portman’s headphones when she hands them to Zach Braff: “You gotta hear this one song [“Egyptian Robe”] — it’ll change your life; I swear.” Miniature Tigers are sly and literate, with references to Stephen King, Nabokov, and […]
