Have you ever felt an artist belongs to a specific season of the year? We music reviewers tend to throw the “summery song” or “warm hit of the season” thing around from time to time, bestowing a weird blessing to the music that gets us to wear Birkenstocks, bad Acapulco shirts, and knock-off Ray-bans. Reviewing doesn’t pay. At all. Anyways, if we assume music reviewers … Continue reading Review: Matt Pond PA – Still Summer
Writing for Sloucher is very much like The Mafia: just when I thought I was out, they drag me back in!. Five years ago I wrote an article about defunct, uber-cult Boston band Karate and how, in my opinion, they are the most underrated band of all time. Now, I haven’t written any articles since but when the fine folk at Sloucher asked me to … Continue reading The Lost Gem: Karate – Some Boots
“The life of a Repo Man is always intense.” It was “candy night, y’all” at The Grapes. Well, it wasn’t that name. It was a gig night that the people of Pisco Sour Hour had curated. They always put a good gig in that joint and there was always some kind of decoration theme going for the night. Sugar Rush! I think that was the name. That … Continue reading 30 days, 30 bands – #8 RepoMen
It’s a sunny day in San Francisco. The humidity makes this heat a thousand times less tolerable. I can see Sausalito from this low lit attic and I wonder: has it really been three years? The UFOs, the Greek woman, the endless slices of pie… There’s no high watermark to wax poetically about and I can’t think of any pithy sentences; the review should be intricate … Continue reading Review: Sonny and the Sunsets – Moods Baby Moods
RIP, Dead English Gentlemen, we hardly knew ye. Just found about it in today’s news, reported with all the gory bits highlighted for the Instagram generation. The frantic trio of Dead English Gentlemen were on the rise, back into the game with a brand new video for a their single, ‘Buried on Muscle Beach’. And they paid the warm reception for this song with their lives. You see, … Continue reading Video: Dead English Gentlemen – Buried on Muscle Beach
El futuro está ocurriendo ayer récords presenta: Todos lo hicimos. El experimento de pintar un disco de cartulina con diferentes segmentos de colores, perforar un par de agujeros y hacer pasar un hilo de cáñamo a través de ellos para crear un sencillo sistema rotativo que al girar nos mostrara mágicamente el resultante color blanco. Menciono lo anterior porque me parece que es exactamente … Continue reading Reseña: Weezer – Weezer (the white album)
It has been a long road, but the honeysuckle psych poppy Hey Sholay comes back from the woods. ‘Eyes for me’ is a trippy honeycomb that should remind you that the beloved quintet can make a hook, then turn it into fried gold. If tha fancies it, you can download it from their soundcloud Continue reading Stream: Hey Sholay – Eyes for me
Hey ho, away we go! It’s another one from our “let’s keep bands and PRs happy with a quick post!” book of blogging! That is: VIDEO ROUND UP! First, we’ve got a brand new single by Cromwellian chamber popites (!) The Eastern Sea. ‘Silver Spoon’ spearheads a cavalcade of new tracks that we will hype, hyperbole and hug (in that order) once they are out. In … Continue reading Video Round Up: The Eastern Sea, Beach Day, Alex Napping, La Chance, Motes
2014 has seen the return of many a thing that seemed dearly departed. Failure came back. Space Rock bands seem to be getting a good amount of love. Molly McGuire is back too. Yes! 18 years after the Ken Andrews’ produced monster Lime, Molly Mcguire release III, a brutal journey through the moors of Space Rock and Hard Rock. Joints might be creaky, there’s a few … Continue reading Review: Molly McGuire – III
Hullo, you wildling watchers of Westfield, this is our always late EP round-up, where we scrounge, scrawl and sweep sweet singular sonic sensations. This is so late you could say it’s the very late EP round-up.
Remember: don’t adjust your opinion. We are just a Shithole of a website (TM)
DID YOU KNOW? U2′s Songs of Innocence will always be in your iTunes, no matter how many workarounds and fixes you try. Like an Eldritch horror, The Ancient Spectacled One will not stop haunting you. Dream well, sleep tight.
Oh, well, sigh, sorry for the delays, we were closing this website but we remembered we left some Jaffa Cakes inside the server (mmm, warm cake-o-biscuits). We promise not to do another one of these ever again. Unless y’all ask nicely. And tells us to lay off the Jaffas. Continue reading “Our last EP round-up! Council Tax Band, Warmhammer, Keel Her, Kings, O’Captain, Le Coq, King Capisce, New Beard, Brave New Storm”
