Iron Maiden / Coheed And Cambria @ Usana Amphitheater 08/01/12 SLC, UT

We’ve been meaning to post a concert review on this show for sometime now. But, the words have been escaping us to properly explain the wonder and awesomeness that was the Iron Maiden  / Coheed And Cambria show. So I will keep this post short and sweet. Coheed and Cambria were spectacular (they always are live). It was a … Continue reading

Muder By Death / Ha Ha Tonka – Bar Deluxe SLC, UT 8/15/12

Before I begin my review of the show, I would like to go on record saying that Murder By Death may very well have landed themselves in my personal top 5 favorite bands. Yes, I know this is a big statement. This didn’t happen spontaneously, nor did it happen just in the recent past. Murder By … Continue reading

Record Review: Circa Survive – Violent Waves

Circa Survive Violent Waves I have a soft spot in my heart for Circa Survive. They have always seemed to have a knack for creating an original sound. Plus Anthony Green has one of the better voices in rock music right now. I have always dug his higher pitched almost child like voice paired with the psych tinged prog … Continue reading

Record Review: Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti – Mature Themes

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti Mature Themes As far as I’m concerned, there exists only two explanations for Ariel Pink and his music: interdimensional teleportation, and drugs. While the second option seems more likely given our current lack of any such devices, Ariel Pink is such a fascinating oddity that I would almost be inclined to think … Continue reading

Mulga the Artist

In case you have been living under a rock somewhere, we have made some sweet logo and design changes to the site and our various social media outlets. We now have a new custom designed logo / artwork from an Australian artist named Mulga. I randomly discovered Mulga’s art when I was searching the term “afro with … Continue reading

Record Review: Yeasayer – Fragrant World

Yeasayer Fragrant World Although Yeasayer’s latest album, Fragrant World, doesn’t quite live up to my expectations, that doesn’t mean it’s awful. Their debut album, All Hour Cymbals was all about politically driven lyrics and Odd Blood, their sophomore release, transformed their music into lighter dance tunes. This third effort can’t seem to decide what it wants to … Continue reading

Record Review: Bloc Party – Four

Bloc Party Four Shortly before Bloc Party released Intimacy I read an article where Kele Okereke stated that during his music-infatuated school days after the release of an anticipated rock album he and his mates would lounge around campus discussing its merits (or weaknesses). I love the image he painted because it reminds me of … Continue reading

Cold Specks / Snowblink: Divan Orange, Montreal Quebec (August 7, 2012)

Canada has produced some awesome indie artists over the past several years. Bands such as Arcade Fire, Grimes, El-P and a host of others can attest to that having taken over US music festivals in 2012 like Bonnaroo and the recent Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. The Montreal music scene has served as the focal … Continue reading

Band of Horses / Lower Dens – The Twilight Concert Series (Pioneer Park) SLC, UT 07/26/12

I would like to start off by stating that I am a fairly big Band of Horses fan, I own all their records, I know the majority of their songs, and I listen to them on a fairly regular basis. So I was excited to be seeing them live for this first time, but not in this … Continue reading

Animal Kingdom/Royal Teeth – Jillians, Albany, NY (7/30/2012)

The threesome of Brits known as Animal Kingdom staggered into the coolest bar in the Empire State’s capital city on Monday night to perform their emo-sounding alt rock quite reminiscent of Mew thanks to singer Richard Sauberlich’s falsetto vocal and the bands moody precision (this band often gets lumped together with the likes of Coldplay … Continue reading
