Adopt This Album! – Visions of Grimes

Grimes – Visions (Arbutus Records – 2012) I’ve been thinking a lot about Grimes lately. There’s probably nobody in music I’ve changed my opinion onmore over the last 12 months than her. When she released Visions, I shoved her off to one side as a performance art-heavy kind of performer: maybe you remember the video where she … Continue reading

The Mast: Talkin’ Bodies, Cell Biology, and James Joyce

The Mast represents one of the more exiting young bands working the Brooklyn indie scene these days with their unique brand of moody, percussive, electronic pop reminiscent yet distinct from acts like School of Seven Bells, Nite Jewel, and A Hundred in the Hands. I have seen the Mast live a couple of times in … Continue reading

Clutch @ The Depot 03/19/13 Salt Lake City, UT

There’s not a whole lot I can say about Clutch… except that they are freaking awesome! I have followed the band fairly closely throughout their existence and always paid attention when they released a new album, but for some reason or another I never had gotten around to seeing them live. I’m not quite sure … Continue reading

Junius / Silver Snakes / Night Verses @ The Shred Shed SLC, UT 03/10/13

I had been waiting to see Junius for over a year now, so I was thrilled to see that they were hitting up Salt Lake City and playing The Shred Shed which is easily one of the best all ages venues in the city and to top it all off the band was nice enough … Continue reading

Record Review: Tera Melos – X’ed Out

Hailing from Sacramento, California, Tera Melos is a band that has held a firm grasp on my attention ever since I first discovered them back in 2007. I was introduced to them through the spastic, but colourful sounds that peppered their second EP, Drugs to the Dear Youth, which isn’t the easiest collection of songs … Continue reading

Record Review: The Haxan Cloak – Excavation

I was pretty confused when I originally heard that the Haxan Cloak had signed to Tri Angle Records last year. Like yeah, it was totally rad, but it just didn’t really make sense to me. Although both admittedly known for their dark approach to music, the textural experiments of the Haxan Cloak’s debut LP had … Continue reading
