All posts for the month April, 2014

Kind of crazy to think that this band would eventually mature into an outfit patient enough to write a song like “So Now You Know”. They still might dedicate a little too much time to their haircuts, but The Horrors’ upcoming LP Luminous is absolutely great.

Matt flew solo again, and thus played these songs for no discernible reason.

Naomi Yang, of Galaxie 500 fame, directs the slow-focused, introverted visuals that perfectly accompany Marissa Nadler’s “Drive”, off of her recently released July LP.
Heady, slow-burning psych from The Cult of Dom Keller. I know next to nothing about the band, except I’ve been constantly returning to their bandcamp page all week. The title track to their newest LP grows and morphs over the course of its length, before finally erupting into an absolute monster.
