INSTANT CLASSIC

While I for the most part Are You Falling In Love’s strong twee/emo framed melodies didn’t engage me, on “For You”, Atlanta band Gold-Bears reemerges with a near-flawless punk-pop song conjuring the swinging jitters of Buzzcocks at their very best. Gone are the debut albums heavily nostalgia-driven songs that mostly sounded like semi-budget carbon-copies of early-to-mid 90’s Yo La Tengo. “For…

Review: Mac DeMarco - Salad Days

Whether you care or not about Mac DeMarco well-documented on-stage antics or recklessness slacker-head persona, doesn’t really matter, it’s impossible not to like the guy anyway. Salad Days, his first record since 2012 breakout album 2, sticks to his slippery, codeine styled jangle-pop, but glossier, more melodic and if possible, even more memorable. With each new release (Salad Dayscount as his…

The band is preparing the release of new album Love,reportedly recorded in Montreal with Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s David Bryant and Efrim Menuck handling production. The album also features a whole roster of impressive musicians, including sax player Colin Stetson and…

Review: Woods - With Light and With Love

It’s unlikely Woods will ever make a poor album. On a near yearly basis we’re treated with another tuneful release from the Brooklyn four-piece, almost all equally good. Even if they cleaned up notably since the early lo-fi days, they’ve never steered far from the initial path. And although it’s easy to write them off as a band favoring consistency over change, every album leaves its own unique…

New Tracks: Twin Shadow - To The Top

I’m always a sucker for Twin Shadow’s high-reaching refrains, and as the title reveals, his latest stand-alone single “To The Top” is no exception.

INSTANT CLASSIC

In the wake of Röyksopp’s success with “Eple” in the early 00’s, it seemed that a country formerly only associated with various forms of metal was spawning a new confident generation of young Norwegian producers with strong affinities for Jean Michel Jarre, Giorgio Moroder and 70’s styled prog disco. At the forefront were Hans-Petter Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas, who understood the album format…
