INDIE NEWS REEL: 6/24

by charles poladian (pixies pic by renaud monfourny) The Reel goes on even though summer seems to have retreated. The rain can put me in a mood, but there is so much new music it is hard to feel blue for too long. Looking on the bright side of things, some of our favorite bands [...]

INDIE NEWS REEL: 6/17

by charles poladian What is good party people? So, I hear the rumor on the streets is that young cats, like myself and you, loyal reader, dig festivals.

FULL RELEASE : 6/9

by the QC staff This week’s new releases are devastatingly necessary. The godfathers of noise-pop, Sonic Youth, release a pleasant, easily digestible continuation of their long career.

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 42 (APR 19 – 25)

by bmac Pop Out Player I think winter finally gave up. Not only did we get a duo of sunny 90 degree days this weekend, but it looks like it’s going to stay nice and warm for the foreseeable future. Time to bust out the shades, shed the layers and make some festival plans for [...]

INDIE NEWS REEL: 4/22
