Heisenberg, Moths, and The Archduke, a review of Corrections’ Simply Activity

Corrections is the product of Australian born Londoner Sam Nicholas. Self described (ironically) as a “post-post-punk" band, Corrections does push boundaries with a slight pop sensibility. They are definitely a post-punk/new wave band in the vein of The Smiths or the early works of The Cure. They are more experimental with their sounds. They create … Continue reading Heisenberg, Moths, and The Archduke, a review of Corrections’ Simply Activity

Resurgence At Decade’s End (My Albums of The Year)

Something special happened in 2019. Music was great again (insert cheesy MAGA reference here.) Not that it hasn’t been good, but it has honestly been a long time since I believed it was a great year for music. Given that a majority of musicians are left-leaning I have always believed that the best music comes … Continue reading Resurgence At Decade’s End (My Albums of The Year)

A few favorites from 2019

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1gHhtJgZamY5UEL39iBdla?si=IYfkFSPlRkieDfIjLMY9Yg I found myself in a bit of a rut this year, mostly listening to old music and making nostalgic playlists over keeping an ear out for new releases. However, there were a few things I really latched onto like Mitski's Be The Cowboy (shocking, I know,) and, more recently, Leaving Meaning from Swans. Regardless, … Continue reading A few favorites from 2019

I Came as a Rat: Modest Mouse’s New passion for Bestial Snuff Photography

Sure, there's the occasional clue hinting at upcoming half-hearted singles but only recently has it become somewhat interesting to check in with these elusive Washington State indie darlings. Why? Well, … Continue reading I Came as a Rat: Modest Mouse’s New passion for Bestial Snuff Photography

Rosey – A Great Day to be Swallowed by a Whale

This summer has been an absolutely killer time to be a fan of Memphis musicians. Multiple bands and songwriters have been putting out their best work in the past few months and it's been incredibly exciting. Normally this would be a problem, because I am a drunk shut-in who won't leave his back yard unless … Continue reading Rosey – A Great Day to be Swallowed by a Whale

Of Creative Satisfaction: An Interview with Daughters/Way Out’s Nicholas Sadler

Photo by Rianne Garrido Daughters re-imagined and beautifully corrupted their sound on last years You Won't Get What You Want. In actuality, I got exactly what I did not know I needed. The album has an almost industrial edge to its rhythm section and singer Alexis shouts and wails his grim and poetic brand of … Continue reading Of Creative Satisfaction: An Interview with Daughters/Way Out’s Nicholas Sadler
