Happy Pi Day!

It’s 3/14 today and that means it’s pi day. Don’t know how to celebrate? Take a cue from Harvard’s Math department and have a pi recitation contest and/or a pie eating contest. Need another reason to celebrate? 3/14 is also Albert Einstein’s birthday. MP3: Spoon- My Mathematical Mind Buy Spoon:InsoundAmazon

Lo-Fi Superheros?

Sasha: Okay, it’s a little weird but stay with me on this one guys! I started writing up a post on Eric Elbogen (AKA the band, Say Hi to Your Mom) and started noticing a lot of similarities to Owen Ashworth (AKA the band, Casiotone For the Painfully Alone.) I’m starting to think they’re the […]

Clit 45

silverunity: Some people need caffeine to start their early day, I happen to need a double shot of street punk in the morning. I had to wake up early today and do some work, and I needed something to energize me and wake me up. Clit 45 did just that. And because of this, Clit […]

Arcade Fire

Sasha: So it’s Sunday (Monday morning if you wanna get technical about it) 2:30am, the last night of spring break. I really need to get some sleep before class tomorrow but I can’t stop listening to Neon Bible, the new Arcade Fire album. Like so many artists I love now it took me awhile to […]

7 Second – Good To Go

silverunity: When you think of hardcore, what comes to mind? If you thought of screaming or chunky breakdowns, it’s time to learn what true old school hardcore is. 7 Seconds is one of the original old school hardcore bands, playing lightning fast punk rock all while SINGING (not screaming) melodic positive lyrics.

Teenage Harlets

The Evens

Sasha: The Evens are Ian MacKaye and Amy Farina. I picked up their first album this week and was blown away by how much I liked it, the sound is pretty mellow compared with some of MacKaye’s earlier work with Minor Threat and Fugazi, it’s sparse but with catchy hooks. No worries though, this album […]

After years of fighting Nazis and Communists the Captain was brought down on the steps of a Manhattan courthouse by a sniper.

Intro5pect

I love punk rock, but sometimes, it can get a bit repetitive. Intro5pect (the 5 is pronounced as an ‘s’, those clever bastards) is definitely a fresh breath of air for punk. While they have all the tell-tale signs of a punk band (politically charged lyrics, catchy melodies, lot of energy, etc), Intro5pect brings something […]
