A refreshingly nostalgic debut.

Adebisi Shank – Big Unit

Gorgeous math rock.

Supermodel tries, but it’s ultimately an ugly record.

How Scott Walker both fast-tracked my enlightenment and disfigured my soul.

Probably In Hell: LITE @ Electrowerkz

Gabriel has the audacity to complain about seeing Sigur Rós twice.

Chris Forsyth – Solar Motel

Fades into the background.

Stand back and watch how it’s done.

A rare misstep, but a nasty fall all the same.

Youngblood Hawke – Wake Up

A sterile sound for a sterile new wave.

Queens of the Stone Age – …Like Clockwork

Brilliantly caught between the insane and the divine.

“It’s pulsating. It’s pounding. It’s three minutes of relentless power chords and a palpitating rhythm section.”
