This Machine Is Not Broken: The Dandy Warhols Review at Huffington Post

This Machine Is Not Broken: The Dandy Warhols Review at Huffington Post "The instrumentation in the album is incredible, the production very clean. "Sad Vacation" and "The Autumn Carnival" are great cuts. I especially love the addition of brass to the ensemble. Though CTT may sound tired in "I am Free," the triumphal build and blare of the trumpets make the song bright and roadtrip-worthy....Likewise, "Don't Shoot, She Cried" weaves layers of harmonica, synth, and acoustic guitar into a … [Read more...]

5 Star Hey! Hello! Album Review on Electric Banana

5 Star Hey! Hello! Album Review on Electric Banana "Perennially under exposed to mass audiences, Ginger has been at this music biz thing for over twenty years now and has an extremely loyal fan base, allowing him to essentially do whatever he likes. Luckily, what he likes to do is function as a cornucopia of consistently jaw dropping music. However, loyalty is not a pre-requisite to Hey! Hello!. The concentrated joy emanating from every single note cannot fail to invigorate the soul. … [Read more...]

“Ex-Lemonhead Dando Delivers a Powerful Set” – Lancashire Evening Post

"Ex-Lemonhead Dando Delivers a Powerful Set" - Lancashire Evening Post   "That term tortured genius springs to mind when I think of the supremely-talented Evan Dando, charismatic frontman of 1990s’ US outfit The Lemonheads. The Boston-born troubadour dropped by upstairs at 
UCLan’s music venue on his way to Glastonbury, in an acoustic set showcasing one big man, his guitar and wondrous voice. It’s a tall order to engage an audience when you say so little, but his … [Read more...]

Sic Asylum Album Review Gives Spirits of the Dead a 9/10

Sic Asylum Gives Spirits of the Dead "Rumours of a Presence" 9/10   "It’s safe to say that Spirits of the Dead are Norway’s best kept secret....With Rumours Of A Presence it is impossible to classify Spirits of the Dead as any one genre of music or any particular band.  I was asked to describe them last night and was left completely dumbfounded.  After much thought, the best that I could do was say Mastodon meets Pink Floyd, Rush, Black Sabbath, Queens of the Stone Age, … [Read more...]

About Heavy Metal Reviews Spirits of the Dead

About.com Heavy Metal Album Review: Spirits of the Dead   "With the flow of a long drag on a sensimilla roach, drummer Geir Thorstensen and bassist Kristen Hultgren hypnotically anchor this nickelbag collection. Historically accurate lo-fi production crystalizes the eight sugar cubes of stoner- jam dreamscapes." - About.com Heavy Metal Read the full review HERE … [Read more...]

Huffington Post Reviews The Dandy Warhols Live at The Fillmore

The Dandy Warhols Play "Energetically and Candidly" at The Fillmore in San Francisco   "I left the show feeling a bit of hope for my co-millennials. All told, my generation has no right to pronounce judgment on the Dandys. With a bit of luck -- though we may spend a decade or so casually dropping the name of our tech startup, or demurring to eat dandelion greens unless they are certifiably local or wearing bomber jackets while propagating our succulents in our urban alley apartment … [Read more...]

The Red Paintings Concert Review on This Is Not A Scene

The Red Paintings, Rouge Fonce & Solkyri @ The Espy, Melbourne – June 15 Concert Review on This Is Not A Scene   "To describe and understand the experience of a Red Paintings show it’s important to understand the unusual part the whole theatre of the event serves. Rather than the theatre enhancing the listening experience, it’s the listening that enhances the artistic experience (along with the other elements), in part because the balance of control and anarchy leans … [Read more...]

Anvil ‘Hope In Hell’ Review at Colossal Pop

Anvil 'Hope In Hell' Review at Colossal Pop   "Hope in Hell is another thoroughly metal album from Anvil. What I enjoy the most about their last few albums is that, even after the documentary, nothing has really changed. They still sound like Anvil, a cross between Alice Cooper, Motorhead, and AC/DC, with a little heavier edge. They have a fun and cheesy side, especially lyrically, but are all business when it comes to the music....If you have never heard Anvil before than this is … [Read more...]
