Lightning Bolt

Special Guest Blogger- Hotpants Askance: Lightning Bolt didn’t make a mistake when they made up their band’s name. Made up of two boys named Brian (Gibson and Chippendale) on bass and drums (respectively), Lightning Bolt is a massive, giant, ridiculous fucking kick in your ear. It’s wonderful music to freak out to. Much like Captain […]

Leftöver Crack

Sasha:Ok, as promised here’s something a little less aggressively cheerful. Leftöver Crack (it’s funny cause there’s no such thing!) is a New York ska-core band formed out of the remnants of Chocking Victim. With albums like Fuck World Trade and songs like “One Dead Cop” and “Clear Channel (Fuck Off!)” they’re not the most politically […]

Saccharin and Dextrose

Sasha:Picture taken from Cute Overload I’ve been listening to a lot of “cute” music this year. It’s getting scary. Between Arrah and the Ferns, The Besties, and The Unicorns I wouldn’t be surprised to see rainbows and glitter leaking from my headphones. Maybe I’ll get over this soon and make a post about Leftover Crack. […]

Pooping: Biggest Money Maker Ever.

silverunity: We all are living creatures (except you spam-bot… screw you spam-bot), and thus it is inevitable that at one point of our lives, we will have to take a poop. However, if I’m going to be forced to sit on the toilet, I might as well get paid for it, right? RIGHT?! Many people […]

Fishbone

Sasha: Fishbone has a new album out called Still Stuck in Your Throat. This is their first release in six years with only two of the original six members still in the band. Despite this, the album still sounds like classic Fishbone, sort of ska, sort of punk, sort of metal. The Los Angeles group […]

Neko Case

Sasha: Neko Case is the coolest. How did she get so cool you ask. Why do you think I know?! If I knew her secret I would steal it and join the New Pornographers. Anyway I first heard of her because of her work with the New Pornographers then someone told me she had some […]

Arctic Monkeys

Sasha: I avoided the Arctic Monkeys for a long time, probably because I figured the huge amount of buzz surrounding them couldn’t be for real. But eventually when Brainstorm started automatically playing on a friend’s myspace page I realized what a fool I had been. Their slow songs are a little… well slow but they […]

Smog

Sasha: Bill Callahan is a one-man band by the name of smog. I love how simple his songs are. All of his lyrics are delivered in this weird deadpan style which if you listen are actually pretty funny. Smog is not a band for those with a short attention span or just looking for a […]
