REVIEW: Broncho – Bad Behavior

Broncho’s fourth album Bad Behavior is a great indie rock album to dance to if you don’t listen to the lyrics too closely. Although just under 30 minutes long, this album will probably be a standout in this year’s indie rock album releases. Based in Oklahoma, Broncho was formed in 2010 by Ryan...

Buxton’s Newest Album Stay Out Late

Buxton’s newest record, Stay Out Late, unfortunately, did not impress me. This album was my first introduction to the group’s discography, and I think there’s something to be said about the sound that Buxton is trying to achieve that really throws me off. I’m left stumped on the direction that...

There’s something to be said for music that needs to be listened to with the volume all the way up. Nashville rock outfit Idle Bloom’s new record Flood the Dial is nothing if not that kind of music. From the outset, the album is begging to be absolutely blasted from whatever speaker or headphon...

Listening to Jerry Paper is like listening to the elevator music of the future (in a good way). Every track on Like A Baby will have you blinking slower and feeling foggy. There is something special about being able to make music that is some parts spacey, some parts funhouse, and just a touch of Mii ...

I prefer the sound of Bambi over Landmark if we’re comparing. They maintain their former sounds on a few cuts on the album like "Golden" or "Honestly," but it has a few songs that are on another level compared to their former works, like their first track "Mistakes," which has a very echoey, spacey...

Fucked Up- Dose Your Dreams (Merge) [punk rock/experimental] The new Fucked Up album is a wild ride from start to finish. What seems like a record that should be hardcore through and through, the listener is instead presented with a project teeming with just as many punk-ethic contradictions. In a genre ...

Holy Fawn - Death Spells (Whelmed) [blackgaze/shoegaze] The easiest way to describe Holy Fawn would be to make the observation that they combine dreamy shoegaze with dark post-rock/metal. Yet if someone were to tell that to me before I heard the music, I would have no idea how that sounds. Assuming this i...
