“Beautiful Friction” by The Fixx

“Beautiful Friction” by The Fixx

Beautiful Friction is an eclectic collection of thoughts using the instrumental roots of the band to portray them. This will be the 10th studio album for The Fixx, but they have stayed close to their ’80s pop tendencies. There is always that dreamy scenery with a more abrupt foreground. The familiarity of this style is […]

“Just Tell Me That You Want Me”

Let’s be honest; a tribute album is really easy to get wrong. Whether it be The String Quartet Tribute to Limp Bizkit or Harptallica: A Tribute, fans who are musicians themselves can easily get carried away in their enthusiasm for another artist and miss the feel and excitement of the music altogether. Fortunately, that is not […]

“Suicide Pact” by JJAMZ

“Suicide Pact” by JJAMZ

Everybody loves a good acronym, especially the members of JJAMZ. Their names make up the title of their band, which is also a sort of indie-rock cool kids club. You’ve got Jason Boesel of Rilo Kiley (who’s also toured with Bright Eyes), Alex Greenwald of Phantom Planet, Z Berg of The Like, James Valentine of […]

One Lovely Day, his new full-length album released only two years later, is quite the feat […]

“Instinct” by Niki & The Dove

“Instinct” by Niki & The Dove

Niki & The Dove have certainly proved themselves something to be aware of this upcoming year. The Swedish trio had only banded together in 2010 and already have an LP with Sub Pop records. Amongst all of the electronic that has seemed to already dripped into many genres and done over many times, it is […]

“Swing Lo Magellan” by the Dirty Projectors

“Swing Lo Magellan” by the Dirty Projectors

The buzz surrounding the Dirty Projectors latest album Swing Lo Magellan, which follows 2009’s Bitte Orca, is that it is the band’s attempt at an album that is more accessible to audiences. The main result is that many of the songs are laid back and toned down. However, Swing Lo Magellan lacks songs that are […]
