EELS: END TIMES

by mike schoeck End Times is Mark Oliver Everett’s career-defining record. As the eighth studio album from Eels, we find a 46-year-old man hunkered down with an old 4-track recorder in his Los Angeles home. He’s miserable, fist balled at the world and apparently just lost someone he’s cared about quite a lot. Eels’ second [...]

A FAMILY REUNION WORTH GOING TO

by alyssa coluccio (pics by the de wilde’s) I want to see a world where people dance in tie-dyed gauze dresses, sing to an acoustic guitar and laugh as a strong hand and steady eye paint multi-colored butterflies on children’s faces. I want to see people sitting amidst the twinkling lights of a Parisian carnival, [...]

BECK W/ MGMT @ THE UNITED PALACE

photos and post by marc evan Beck with MGMT? Wow. When this tour was announced it seemed an ideal combination. A lineup hearkening back to the dream-team of Beck and The Flaming Lips.

OUTSIDE LANDS PREVIEW 8.22 – 8.24

QC REVIEW: BECK’S MODERN GUILT

by kevin diamond Beck purists will shoot me in the fucking face for saying this, but I still think my favorite Beck album is Midnight Vultures.

ACL LINEUP UNVEILED OVER WEEKEND

by kristen bartley Yes, we all know by now Austin and its residents are weird…a little off their rockers maybe. But credit must be given to the city that hosts two of the most badass music and arts events of the year…South by Southwest and Austin City Limits. This year ACL is boasting 130 bands [...]
