Holograms – Holograms
Holograms - Holograms

Release Date: July 10th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots I had heard so much about Swedish quartet Holograms leading up to their self-titled debut release. I heard they were dirt poor kids like oh so many “starving artists”. I heard they played less then well kempt instruments, again a staple of rock lore from days […]

Mission Of Burma – Unsound
Mission Of Burma - Unsound

Release Date: July 10th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots The intensely raw sound of Mission Of Burma is just as impactful today as it was on the heels of their stellar 1982 release VS. Everyone knows the story by now, they broke up, stayed broken up for twenty or so years, then reunited in the […]

Twin Shadow – Confess
Twin Shadow - Confess

Released Date: July 10th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots I often hear comparisons between Twin Shadow everything George Lewis Jr. and one Prince Rogers Nelson. And though I think there are some obvious comparisons between the two, such as their shared love of 80’s glam-wave, as well as their equally androgynous nature. I think the […]

Beach House – Bloom
Beach House - Bloom

Release Date: May 15th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots Nobody makes stadium-gigantic sound more wholesome then Beach House. The Baltimore duo’s latest effort Bloom is so expansive in its dreaminess that it belongs in its own atmosphere, though it’ll likely instead be found in bedrooms all across this great spinning rock on which we reside. […]

Gold Motel – Gold Motel
Gold Motel - Gold Motel

Release Date: July 3rd, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots Gold Motel is best described by a sound I like to identify as “Pristine Pop”, shimmery and shiny in nature but without all the blah blah-ness of the radio sensational standard. GM is the brainchild of Greta Morgan, who, sick of the dried up Chicago Pop/Punk […]

Peaking Lights – Lucifer
Peaking Lights - Lucifer

Released Date: June 18th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots There’s something soothing about Peaking Lights new album Lucifer, even though the title might suggest otherwise. This smooth ship of an album sails along; pulsed by a swampy bass and ultra chill beats courtesy of co-founder Aaron Coyes. If Coyes is wind to the sail then […]

Fiona Apple – The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do
Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do

Release Date: June 19th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots Fiona Apple is ferocious… not just in her return to record making as one might have expected me to end that sentence, but simply in being. Take the second song on her newest release The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw & […]

Electric Guest – Mondo
Electric Guest - Mondo

Release Date: April 24th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots I feel like the first thing everyone talks about when discussing Electric Guest’s debut record Mondo is the fact that Brian (Danger Mouse) Burton produced it. And though there’s no doubting it’s a DM record, I think we should pick a few other things apart first […]

Metric – Synthetica
Metric - Synthetica

Release Date: June 12th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots Metric has definitely taken an antiemetic turn on their last few records, which is something they do quite well. Still, I can’t help but long for the Metric of old. When they were young, poor, Brooklynites, before it was cool to be a young, poor, Brooklynite. […]

Atlas Genius – Through The Glass EP
Atlas Genius - Through The Glass EP

Release Date: June 8th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots With their debut EP Through The Glass Australian band Atlas Genius joins the likes of Neon Tree’s and Young The Giant as bands I feel are very talented yet utterly un-impactful. Their music’s good, real good, it just doesn’t come close to moving me, a trend […]

Liars – WIXIW
Liars - WIXIW

Release Date: June 5th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots The beat on Liars new record WIXIW seems to be continual from beginning to end, making it feel as though there’s a rhythmic hum linking each of the songs. The constant rattle starts with the records opening track “The Exact Color Of Doubt” which is backed […]

The Antlers – Undersea EP
The Antlers - Undersea EP

Release Date: July 24th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots There’s no doubt you’re left with a sinking feeling while listening to The Antlers newest EP Undersea. It feels as though you’re floating down into the gallows, about to be swallowed whole by the sea. And you’re all right with that, all right because an airy […]

The Antlers – Burst Apart
The Antlers - Burst Apart

Release Date: May 10th, 2011 Reviewed By Court Smoots Wide-open and sprawling, The Antlers are no longer defined by the bedroom music once associated with their stellar LP Hospice. Pete Silberman has broken free from those four walls and brought some friends along for the ride, a spacey range before them, Silberman’s angelic falsetto as […]

Monks of Mellonwah – Neurogenesis EP
Monks of Mellonwah - Neurogenesis EP

Release Date: May 24th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots There’s something about Monks of Mellonwah that feels familiar to me, something that reminds me of the 90’s… though not in a good way. There’s a very heard feel to their sound, and that’s never a good place to start when you’re a supposed buzz-band (cringe […]
