“Sweet Heart, Sweet Light” by Spiritualized

“Sweet Heart, Sweet Light” by Spiritualized

Spiritualized is a band often described as “space rock”, but it is not often that an album brings you so down to earth. Sweet Heart, Sweet Light is the result of harsh realities. It is the reflecting that you tend to do when you’re alone in your room and the inspiration you feel after it […]

“A Wasteland Companion” by M. Ward

“A Wasteland Companion” by M. Ward

M. Ward’s seventh studio album is the first to actually feature his likeness on its cover: A Wasteland Companion pictures the indie-folk artist’s majestically silhouetted pompadour set against an image of the moon. The album, which was released on April 10 by Merge Records, was recorded in eight studios and six cities (From west to […]

“Bloom” by Beach House

“Bloom” by Beach House

Dream pop duo Beach House dropped their fourth studio length album this month on Sub Pop records – Bloom. It’s been two years since we last heard from Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally with Teen Dream. While Teen Dream was wildly successful and hailed as one of the best albums of 2012, Bloom was undoubtedly born […]

“Stars and Satellites” by Trampled By Turtles

“Stars and Satellites” by Trampled By Turtles

Trampled By Turtles’ sixth album in eight years, Stars and Satellites, is in many ways a fine introduction to the band who stand as one of the rare few that unpretentiously deserve a hyphenated genre classification: let’s go with “post-punk bluegrass” for now. The album opens with “Midnight On The Interstate”, which infuses some pop […]

“Visions” by Grimes

“Visions” by Grimes

Grimes, aka Montreal-based electro-pop sprite Claire Boucher, is finally breaking through with her third LP ‘Visions’. It’s an irresistible album— it’s dreamy, breezy electro-pop, yet it hides something deep underneath its charm. It’s extremely catchy, and rides on the current wave of 80s-inspired electronic dance music. Yet, the album leaves you with something more. Grimes […]

“The Great Despiser” by Joe Pug

“The Great Despiser” by Joe Pug

Joe Pug has always sounded wise beyond his years, ever since his first EP, 2008′s “Nation of Heat.” Five years later, his world-weariness is even more apparent on “The Great Despiser,” to be released April 24. There’s a tone to his voice and his lyrics that echoes folk legends from Bob Dylan to Steve Earle, […]

“Come Back As Rain” by Good Old War

“Come Back As Rain” by Good Old War

Pennsylvania trio Good Old War have returned with their third album, Come Back As Rain, with new experiences on their mind. Known for their upbeat sound and perfected harmonies, Keith Goodwin, Dan Schwartz, and Tim Arnold squeeze a new sound of nostalgic blues into the first half of their album. But Good Old War bring […]

“Which Side Are You On?”

“Which Side Are You On?”

With over 20 albums, starting her own record company and opening for Bob Dylan under her belt, it is interesting to ponder what’s left for Ani DiFranco. Her latest release, however, What Side Are You On? proves DiFranco’s still got it. With a mixture of her signature acoustic slow jams as well as some with […]
