14 Questions with Night Verses’ Nick DePirro

I love going to concerts. I really, really do. However, over the past year and a half I have tested that love. Before Bearded Gentlemen Music existed I would catch a show only when a band I was really in to would roll in to town. There have been times within this past year or so … Continue reading

Interview / Concert Review: KEN Mode – June 8th, 2013, Toronto

Winnipeg’s KEN Mode have played Toronto multiple times before, but I have never made it out to see their ferocity live. On June 8th, they rolled into town alongside Miami’s sludge kings Torche and Columbus’ Lo Pan and proved their power in person. I also had a chat with KEN Mode’s guitar player and vocalist … Continue reading

TWIABPAIANLATD / Dads / Pity Sex / You, Me, and Everyone We Know / Among Giants @ Will’s Pub, Orlando, FL 6/19/13

Naturally, hearing a name as long as The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die will spark your interest no matter where you read or hear it. I was aware of the band, but never gave them a true listen until a friend of mine pointed out a tour … Continue reading

Adopt this Album: Liz Phair – Exile in Guyville

June 22nd, marked the twenty year anniversary of the release of Liz Phair’s explosive debut album Exile in Guyville. Let’s celebrate by remembering what a compilation it was in its most natural state, a record that not only helped launch other female rockers, but without a doubt left an impression on many young women growing … Continue reading

Father John Misty @ The Urban Lounge, Salt Lake City, UT 06/19/13

I love music- but getting me to attend a show at The Urban Lounge is damn near impossible. The thought of catching an STD by using the restroom and wrangling my way through some dirty hipster’s bike path is enough to keep me away from seeing some great bands. However, when I learned that Father John Misty … Continue reading

Record Review: Sigur Rós – Kveikur

Over the past dozen years or so Sigur Rós has quietly built an extraordinary discography.  Not that most of us have noticed, or cared.  Few people can claim they’ve been paying close attention the whole time.  And for good reason.  Because despite their persistently beautiful records, listening to Sigur Rós can be a daunting task.  One … Continue reading

16 Questions with Palms’ Aaron Harris

The dissolution of Isis back in 2010 was heartbreaking to any fan of underground metal. Isis was an essential band in every sense of the word, helping pioneer and popularize the post-metal scene. The band’s last album, Wavering Radiant in 2009, hinted at a possible direction for the band that only added to the sting … Continue reading

Record Review: Kanye West – Yeezus

Kanye West might be a genius, but he’s also the guy who is dating Kim Kardashian.  And to be perfectly honest; you have to be full of shit to do something like that. And Yeezus, Kanye West’s first record since the critically acclaimed, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, is as full of shit as it gets. Still, … Continue reading

Taylor Swift: Feeling 22, Rising and Not There Yet

The first line of the song’s a joke about hipsters and the video’s shot in 4:3, with a filter making it look like an Instagram picture. Taylor Swift is feeling 22 and maybe just a little ambitious. The first time I heard of Swift, a coworker was raving about this artist with a song about … Continue reading

Record Review: Boards of Canada – Tomorrow’s Harvest

Mark Twain once famously called The Book of Mormon, “chloroform in print.”  Anyone who’s tried to get through First Nephi knows exactly what Twain was talking about, even if they don’t openly admit it. And much like Mormon doctrine, Boards of Canada’s first record in eight years, Tomorrow’s Harvest, is great for sleeping to, but … Continue reading
