Review: Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes – Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes

Rates of change. The mathematical tool to describe movement. Positive or negative, it doesn’t matter; nothing stays the same. The vertiginous debut album by Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes can only make me think of calculus. A frantic disposition to the heavier sentiment of post-hardcore summarises the tracks in their self-titled album. The granite-solid musical foundation allows Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes to jump, soar and fly back through nine songs … Continue reading Review: Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes – Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes

Premiere: Moving Panoramas – Radar.

The amazing Austin trio, Moving Panoramas, return with another video, this time around for the mesmerising ‘Radar’. One of the more introspective songs from One, (our review) ‘Radar’ re-visits those wistful moments when yearning takes over your mind. Reality blurs aways, trascending into a hazy territory, full of wonder and dread. Just like swimming into unknown waters, whether from a lake or lonesome municipal pool, something might be … Continue reading Premiere: Moving Panoramas – Radar.

Review: The Eastern Sea – The Witness

2014, SXSW. Somewhere near the middle of The Eastern Sea’s set at a BBQ joint, after ‘Boy in blue’ ends and ‘Young nones’ begins, I realise this is one of those gigs I’ll remember for the rest of my life. Not only it’s the last show I’ll see in Austin in this little trip of mine, but it feels like the culmination of a strange … Continue reading Review: The Eastern Sea – The Witness

Stream: The Eastern Sea – Boy in Blue

I love The Eastern Sea. Since accidentally running into them thanks to Daytrotter, I’ve found them marvellous. Last year I was stupidly lucky to see them live several times (four!) during SXSW and they delivered a perfect set of new songs. One of these particular songs made a mark. It actually captured that strange feeling of having to move from one country to another after 5 long … Continue reading Stream: The Eastern Sea – Boy in Blue

Review: Moving Panoramas – One

When is music a healing tool? I for one cannot say that I know the process as a musician, but as a music junkie, I think that once you find the one song that brings catharsis for a particular bad memory, you’ve found the chosen one. Wait, one, one, ONE! http://rd.io/x/QWHyHCIDOWg/ Fuck yeah, Moving Panoramas’ debut album is out! In lieu of a review full of platitudes, … Continue reading Review: Moving Panoramas – One

Stream: Moving Panoramas – One

    We might be hardwired to think of dreamgaze as shoegaze’s soft-speaking sibling, but you really don’t need distortions to be heavy. It’s the words what matter, really, and when those chained sentences are enveloped in atmospheric wonderlands like the ones Moving Panoramas create, they linger on. ‘One’ is the first of many great songs from Moving Panoramas new album, out on Modern Outsider on October. We actually have heard … Continue reading Stream: Moving Panoramas – One

Video Round Up: The Eastern Sea, Beach Day, Alex Napping, La Chance, Motes

  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

Review: Pompeii – Loom

Hey, remember that time I was tired beyond belief watching Pompeii in an Austin BBQ joint? No? Maybe for  the best, so here’s the executive summary: Pompeii are back and they have an album called Loom out. It’s splendorous. Review done, milk is cancelled, the cat’s gone out, goodbye. No, actually, grab a seat and let me tell you about the beauty inherent to the … Continue reading Review: Pompeii – Loom

Interview – The Whiskey Priest

  We do love Seth Woods in his many faces in this Shithole of a Website (TM). As Sad Accordions, we have felt the past and present clashing, creating a wave of emotional songs that linger on like fine incense. As The Whiskey Priest, the melancholic lyrics ride on the upbeat music. It’s been a while since we’ve talked with Seth Woods, so when the … Continue reading Interview – The Whiskey Priest
