Deap Vally – “Smile More”

This Deap Vally song killed me when it came out over the summer, but it sounds even more right on this most fucked up of days. Don’t let any man tell you how to be. Hang in there and fight back. The new Deap Vally record is called Femejism and it’s out now. You should […]

Kevin Morby – “Dorothy”

I’ve been listening to the new Kevin Morby record incessantly for days now – mostly because it’s great, but also to try and figure out how it differs from albums we’ve all heard a million times. Sure, these are atmospheric songs about wanderlust and truth-seeking, and yeah, you will easily recognize Morby’s influences throughout, but the music […]

Kodiak Deathbeds – “Never Change”

I’m a big fan of Derek Fudesco and Amber Webber and love all of their musical projects including Cave Singers, Black Mountain, The Murder City Devils, Lighning Dust and Pretty Girls Make Graves. Derek sent me the duo’s new Kodiak Deathbeds in July, and though I was immediately drawn to its loveliness, I was still in the […]

Slim Twig – “Slippin Slidin”

Slim Twig‘s new album Thank You For Stickin’ With Twig makes me feel dirty. It has a dangerous sort of sexiness to it that manages to be menacing and exhilarating at the same time. While Mr. Twig has been making artistic and unusual records now for 10 years, this one feels most like a cohesive rock album than anything I’ve encountered from him. It’s still challenging […]

Bully – “Trying”

Alicia Bognanno is the singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer and engineer for a Nashville-based rock band called Bully, and she is a badass. Bognanno went to school to learn audio engineering and then interned with Steve Albini and taught herself to play guitar. Bully feels a lot like some 90s rock artists I liked  – The Breeders, Liz Phair and […]

Singer/songwriter Laura Gibson lost all of her stuff in yesterday’s terrifying fire in New York. There’s a GoFundMe campaign to help her get some money together to replace her belongings and get a new place to live. It’s hard enough to be an artist these days without having your things lit on fire, so please […]

Mas Ysa – “Look Up”

This new Mas Ysa song is killing me. “Look Up” is a sneakily addictive piece of work, with quirky little sounds repeated in what I can only assume are mathematically-proven-to-be-pleasing patterns. This is from the mind of someone who clearly knows how to craft a song; I almost feel manipulated by how well this is put […]
