Spreading ROCKthusiasm – Polaris Music Prize

And then there were ten. That’s how many albums will be vying for the 2012 Polaris Music Prize, which has fast become the brightest symbol of Canadian music excellence.

Interview: Amber Ojeda

Reviewing Amber Ojeda’s Space.Bar.Love last week, my curiosity piqued about this “Platinum Hit” cyberspace cool chica, crossing romantic galaxies while blending jazz and hip-hop genres. Graciously pressing the “Pause Break” button, taking time from her studio sessions, she answered a few (ok, more than a few) questions about her San Diego beginnings, her future EP […]

Matt and Kim announce an October 2nd release date for their new album Lightning on FADER Label.

Artist Update: Danny Brown

Yesterday, super-producer The Alchemist dropped Russian Roulette on Decon. The album plays like a beat collage featuring the biggest names in indie rap (Danny Brown, Schoolboy Q, Action Bronson, Mr Muthafuckin’ eXquire, etc). Today a new music video is out from it.  Often gruesome, always NSFW, footage-finder/visual collagist/director Jason Goldwatch did the official clip for “Flight […]

Introducing Sweet Valley

Sweet Valley is Nathan Williams (frontman of critically beloved, fan favorite fuzz punks Wavves) and his brother Kynan. Stay Calm is their debut release, an instrumental beat tape that doubles as an awesomely lysergic postcard from the outer reaches of pop USA. Whether screwing American Bandstand breaks on “Total Carnage” or whipping out g-funk synthesizers on “Dunk […]

Shut Up And Play The Hits

It’s hard to believe that it has only been about a year and a half since indie music darlings LCD Soundsystem announced their disbandment. Quickly growing into one of the most popular bands, they suddenly called it quits, sending shockwaves across the interwebs. For their final show in their hometown of NYC, James Murphy and […]
