Record Review: Tomahawk – Oddfellows

Balls. Brains. Guts. I’ve had an interesting relationship with rock music for the better part of my life. It’s the genre I feel the strongest about, whether that particular emotion be positive or negative. It’s a style of music defined by it’s limitations (vocals, guitars, drums, MAYBE keys and that’s pretty much it) yet there … Continue reading

The Next Level feat. Phil

The Next Level was kind enough to have our boy Phil Maye on their radio program again. They talked about all the important things in life including A$AP Rocky, Tomahawk, Grouper and their obsession with the show Homeland. Please indulge yourself in some of the finest radio programming that ever existed.

Record Review: Toro Y Moi – Anything in Return

Sorry, I’m a little late on my review for the new Toro Y Moi album. I have been waiting to get a hold of  a special someone whom I felt could adequately explain all the funky awesomeness that is Toro’s new album Anything in Return. So without further delay may I present my brief and fictitious (obviously) talk with one of the … Continue reading

17 Questions with Tomahawk

I am going to start off by stating that I love Tomahawk. I have been a big fan of the band since their first album came out in 2001. Since then I have been a devoted follower and once I saw the clip of Mike Patton using some sort of gas mask contraption as a microphone and … Continue reading

Record Review: Grouper – The Man Who Died In His Boat

Grouper The Man Who Died In His Boat With such a seemingly testosterone-fueled blog name like Bearded Gentlemen Music, it seems peculiar that we would choose to start the year off review-wise with such a low-key, very introverted album like The Man Who Died In His Boat. Its not as though 2013 in its few … Continue reading

Twenty | One | Pilots

About two weeks ago I discovered Twenty One Pilots, while stumbling across their video for “Guns for Hands” I was captivated by the duo, Tyler Joseph (vocals, piano, programming) and Josh Dun (drums, percussion, programming) who radiated artistic peculiarity.  I immediately searched for more, discovering the single “Holding Onto You”  I was smitten and my … Continue reading

Yamantaka // Sonic Titan @ Zaphod Beeblebrox, January 12th, Fucked Up @ Ritual Nightclub January 13th Ottawa, Canada

As I write this, it is currently 10:30 pm on Sunday night and I still can’t move or hear anything properly. This weekend, something extremely rare happened: some good bands actually came to Ottawa. While usually I’m lucky if I can catch one or two good shows in the span of a year in this … Continue reading

13 Questions With Kowloon Walled City

Basically since I have discovered Kowloon Walled City I have been obsessed with them. I was late to the KWC party so just recently found out about the band when their latest album Container Ships (#14 on my best of list) was about to be released. After the album was released I bought a CD copy of the bands … Continue reading

The Power of Adele

While most of us for the past 2 years have lived a somewhat mundane life of work with the occasional awesome moments, Adele’s 21 has ruled the Billboard as best selling Album.  You heard right, for the first time the same album finishes as the United States’ best-seller for a second year. I fell head over heels for … Continue reading
