TRACK REVIEW: “WINTER SONG” BY KYP MALONE

by chris carpenter Rain Machine is the solo work of TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone. The track “Winter Song” is one of the best I’ve heard in sometime which prompted today’s review. First and foremost, the song is over 11 minutes long, so if you’re purely a fan of the pop blueprint, 4-minute track, [...]

BK VENUE REVIEW: DON PEDRO

by amy davis Don Pedro makes no apologies for being unlike your typical mod Williamsburg haunts. Gritty and loving it, this Brooklyn music venue/eatery fully embraces the well-worn characteristics that keep it hovering that thin line between the adjectives frequently describing it as rustic and downright dive-bar chic. No, no, no, this Old New York venue [...]

2009 BONNAROO WRAP-UP

by neil, alex, & muggs The weekend was a break from social convention, an immersion into music of the last 20 years, and a psychedelic adventure in Manchester, Tennessee.  An illustrious collection of Brooklyn indie rockers graced the Bonnaroo stages over the four day affair, with some surprise standouts.

IRAN @ DEATH BY AUDIO

by kevin diamond Death By Audio‘s dilapidated home-room style is pretty key. Unpretentious and inviting, in that “there’s water leaking out of the bathroom, but who cares cause you can smoke inside” kind of way. It was a pretty perfect atmosphere to watch the seldom-seen Iran, a band i’d liken to a post-ironic Pavement for [...]

BIG DAY OUT IN SYDNEY

by eliza czander After a train ride that seemed to last a goddamn eternity, we finally arrived at the festival grounds for Sydney’s Big Day Out around 1 PM. I was noticing a theme on the way over, sandwiched between bikini tops and backpacks – Aussies get fucking tanked man. We thought we knew how [...]

SHAZAM MIX VOL. 3

by bmac Another round of Shazam Allstars. This mixtape isn’t as big as the last but it’s solid. It’s pretty awesome that quality indie rock is flowing through Philly right now… Grab em all – shazam 3.zip – or check em out after the jump.

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 17 (OCT 12 – 18)

by bmac I saw Cold War Kids last night @ the TLA in Philly, and they absolutely killed it. I didn’t really know what to expect going into the concert because I was hoping for a high energy show but their new album, Loyalty to Loyalty, is a little on the slow side. Luckily they [...]

TV ON THE RADIO @ BROOKLYN MASONIC TEMPLE

by kevin diamond A smarter man than I once sang “Our band could be your life.” That man was Mike Watt of the Minutemen. It’s a great song lyric, a wonderful sentiment, a fantastic book by Michael Azerrad, and a phrase that, in spite of it’s resonance, quickly looses meaning; so let’s dissect. Perhaps Mike [...]
