Wail To God
Help, I'm lost in a sea of musical influences! Is it the Cars, Pink Floyd, or The Beach Boys? One man band Michael Johnson takes all the best ingredients and makes a musical soup. "Wail to God" …

At Night You Love Me
I am a sucker for 80's inspired rock cheese, and this indie was born from some sweet sweet cheese. Pop worthy lyrics and the aloof lead singer of all our dreams, Regrets for Brunettes brings us the debut …

Fruitless
Los Angeles quintet Lower Heaven may have waltzed into one too many a dark unground club.  Having derived their name from the lyrics of Echo and the Bunnymen. They reverberate a sullen sad-core sound …

Easy
Bring me back to a time when reverb was king, and pop music was far-out as long as you could find it at the "happenin' record store." Pure Ecstasy has infused a smooth alternate universe type …

Grey Is Old
California bred Johann Carabajal and Vincent Mazza have recently released their genius EP, "Together," a small collection of slow, twisted and hypnotic sounds full of melancholy sweet-faced …

I love music... not music per se but also what it is able to reveal.  Most people appreciate music of some form and depending on where you are brought up, what kind of music you are being exposed …

The Argument
Like most of my favorite bands, Fugazi "disbanded" in 2002, which is right around the time I started to like them. FML, right? TOOOOO young to ever see them.      Regardless, …

Alligator (album)
"I need some meaning I can memorize," Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst once sang. It was a great lyric about a universal need--the need to not just find meaning in this complicated world, but to reduce …

Sugar and Gold
Sugar and Gold is a five piece ensemble who hail from San Francisco.  Their sound can best be described as a fusion of electro-synth disco dance funk coupled with pop and rock.  I know, it sounds …

Wildbirds & Peacedrums
Swedish husband and wife Andreas Werliin and Mariam Wallentin debuted their sparse yet powerful folk with Heartcore (Leaf) in 2008. It's the only new release this one-time music reviews editor has bought …
reviewed Mark Darling. March 09, 2009
Mark Darling
Mark Darling is a two-man indie folk band featuring brothers Mark (vocals, guitar) and David Darling (drums). They write short, mostly acoustic tunes that juxtapose relatively simple songwriting with …
reviewed Wavvves (album). February 16, 2009
Wavves - Wavvves (2009)
Wavves' self-titled effort is a not only a welcomed new sound, it is a very well executed noise-rock record. The guitars on the record are super-fuzzed out and the vocals all have distorted effects on …

In Rainbows
Oh to listen to brand new perfect, well pressed vinyl. This album is an amazing pleasure to listen to on vinyl. There is a reason In Rainbows was the top selling vinyl album in 2008, it's well near perfect. …
reviewed In Rainbows. January 30, 2009
In Rainbows
"In Rainbows" is Radiohead's best album since "Kid A," and their most organic recording since "OK Computer" in 1997, or maybe even since "The Bends." It's remarkably taut, losing some steam toward the …

Jaguar Love
I've always really liked the The Blood Brothers. I don't know, the angular, cat-caught-in-a-blender screeches kind of worked for me for a long time. March On Electric Children was the jam. Two of its …
reviewed Aleks and the Drummer. December 16, 2008
Aleks and Deric
Trying to describe Aleks and the Drummer is like trying to describe a digital photo one pixel at a time -- it's hard to get across the whole picture without piling up a lot of information. They sound …

snow patrol
I really like Snow Patrol mainly because they have a lot of power with their music.  I listen to their songs and I feel energized, so to speak.  It's like watching a movie where you really feel …

Daytrotter
Rock Island is part of the Quad Cities, so it's not in the middle of nowhere. But it's not NYC, LA or Chicago for sure. Yet multiple times per week, Daytrotter in Rock Island has rising indie bands stop …

Pros: Thom Yorke is a genius, incredibly amazing lyrics and music, basically everything...     Cons: ...are you kidding me?!     The Bottom Line: In Rainbows is …

In Rainbows
This disc from Radiohead sounds pretty good. I love Thom Yorke's vocals on "Reckoner". He has a very high voice that sounds very nice. This song is upbeat and pleasant. "Weird Fishes and Arpeggi" and …
