Review: The Life and Times – The Life and Times

How do you keep fresh after 15 years in a genre that is a niche inside a nook inside a crannie inside a lost geocache in No Man’s Land? Beats me, but The Life and Times are unto something   with their latest release, The Life and Times. It’s a great album that somehow manages to intertwine two different side of the band. Curious about choosing the … Continue reading Review: The Life and Times – The Life and Times

Review: The Life and Times – Doppelgängers EP

It’s a low-lit bar. The band takes the scene, as the uninterested saps and boozehounds keep hammerin’ down national beer and watered-down bourbon. The three bearded gents tune the instruments, check the cabling, and do a mic check. Nobody cares. It’s a non-smoking dive bar which saw its best days in the seventies, peaking the week before the oil crisis. Still, tar and nicotine still … Continue reading Review: The Life and Times – Doppelgängers EP

Stream: Firesuite – Deadbeat

  It’s been a long time inside a chrysalis state, but Firesuite‘s new album, Outlive your body, is nearing its release date and there’s  a new track to whet appetites of shoegazers and space rockers alike. The instrumental ‘Deadbeat’ iterates itself in a swirl of atmospheres, jazzy drums and cosmic guitars. An amorphous shape in space collects rays, waiting to explode like a pulsar. Great job by Old … Continue reading Stream: Firesuite – Deadbeat

Review: Vast Robot Armies – Little Creatures

A few years ago, Goodnight Myopia landed on my lap. It was a spacey and overtly catchy one man army effort. It also felt like staggering back home after a particularly bad day: emotions are raw, the sun has gone back to its den far too fast and you are seeing red, almost blinded by the dark ocher lampposts guiding you home. Whatever shortcomings Goodnight … Continue reading Review: Vast Robot Armies – Little Creatures

Interview: Withershins

A little while ago, a band from Champaign got in touch with us, contemplating the idea of streaming their new album in our dinky little website. That happened, then we fell head over heels over the album. Now, to get a trifecta, we got in touch with Isaac Arms from Withershins for an email interview. Space Rock, cartoon naughty bits and the state of art are talked … Continue reading Interview: Withershins

Review: Molly McGuire – III

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

Review: Sundiver – The Pull

A few years ago, I was inside a reclaimed terrain, sampling for oil and benzene. One of the PhD fellas asked me what I was listening to the most. I said “space rock”. It took the rest of the sampling time and lunch to get his head around the term. I think he was more worried about isotherms and water levels. This is relevant to … Continue reading Review: Sundiver – The Pull

Review: Withershins – Mt. Fuji in Blue

The vastness of space is hard to pin down as a sound. Sure, there are those sweet, scary sounds the NASA says are “the sounds of space“, but what does space actually sounds like? We probably have mentioned that lovely genre called Space Rock a few times with bands like The Life and Times, The Joy Circuit, Vast Robot Armies and Spacesuit and after spending … Continue reading Review: Withershins – Mt.
