2015. We wave goodbye to this year and just like any other before (and after), there were high and lows. This Shithole of a Website (TM) was supposed to close and we are still here, wondering what it all means and when is it really time to call it quits. It’ll be a whimper, not a bang, but that’s a discussion for another day. In … Continue reading The Great Promo Hunt – Best of 2015

From their fledgling Broom to the growing pains of Pershing and Let it Sway, their curiously cool-as-soda-pop rock was always a refreshing sugary drink that could kick you a bit around, in a gentle way. Tape Club showed a rawer edge, as all demo and rarities compilations wont to do and Fly … Continue reading Review: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – The High Country

You know? The other day one of our writer’s got called “whiny Klosterman-wannabe” [sic] on Facebook, and frankly, we laughed at him/her.
But then we looked in the mirror, took a deep breath and accepted our condition as social misfits/outcasts. So we stopped writing and went off to save the universe.
