Osker – Treatment 5

silverunity (yes I am still alive.)Before a few days ago, I haven’t listened to this cd in over 3 years. When I popped in Osker’s “Treatment 5” into my car CD player my first immediate thought was, “Man, this band is angsty.” Then I remembered how 6 years ago, I used to feel a connection […]

Folk Music for the End of the World

Sasha:Bush presidency got you down? Swamped with end of the semester papers? There is a light at the end of the tunnel friends, only a couple months left of school and as for Bush… well that next election will be here eventually. But if that’s not good enough and you’ve already succumbed completely to depression […]

New New Pornographers?

Sasha: I read an interview at Billboard.com with New Pornographers member Carl Newman about the new album they’re recording and I haven’t calmed down since.

Say Hi To Your Mom/ Bishop Allen

Sasha:Monday night I had the good fortune of seeing Bishop Allen, +/-, and Say Hi to Your Mom. Originally I wasn’t planning on going because the show was an hour away and nobody would come with me but after reading all the great reviews of Bishop Allen’s SXSW show I couldn’t stay away. It was […]

Arcade Fire Video

I think the Arcade Fire are great, but I never really understood people’s fanatical devotion to them… before seeing this. It’s a “take-away show” done for La Blogotheque at Olympia Hall in Paris. Enjoy the elevator performance of Neon Bible and stick around for Wake Up. [dailymotion id=324qbQRIU9JmiaRbL]#41 – Arcade Fire – Neon Bible & […]

Pete and Pete/ Polaris

Sasha:Sometimes I to think back to the golden days of Nickolodeon where I could watch Salute Your Shorts, Clarissa Explains it All, Hey Dude and best of all Pete and Pete. The makers of Pete and Pete must have maxed out all their scene points getting guest stars like Iggy Pop, Steve Buscemi, Selma Blair, […]

Lagwagon

Skate punk, melodic, sweetness. If this was the game Tribound, the answer would be Lagwagon. I really don’t have much to say since I’m so damn tired, so just check the songs out yourself. MP3: Lagwagon – Razor Burn This is song is really damn catchy, and pretty funny in a ridiculous way. About how […]

The Toasters

Sasha:I’m in a great mood, maybe because it’s Friday, but I thought I post some happy music. Bridging the gap between second and third wave ska the Toasters are one of my favorite ska bands. I’ve seen some amazing shows these past few years but none of them hold the same place in my heart […]

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists

Sasha: If I learned one thing seeing Ted Leo at Pitchfork last summer it’s that he’s punk rocker. Don’t believe me? Take a listen to his new album Living With the Living; in this release he returns to his earlier sound and I couldn’t be happier. He’s fast, he’s political, he rocks. For those of […]
