Yeah, those guys rock balls.

I've become obsessed with Camera Obscura's album Let's Get Out Of This Country. Soooooooo good.


Let it be known that Camera Obscura do not, in fact, rock balls. Not even little tiny marbles.

Has anyone else got into Ratatat? I got on that boat a long time ago and I'm glad everyone else has joined. It's very fresh. Super hip sounding, but also really durable under repeated listenings. If you're into instrumental rock with a touch of techno, you gotta hear this record. http://criticalmetr...

They've also become a new form of artistic expression within the reach of DIY bands looking to gain exposure and establish an image. Here's a story all about the new era of music videos, and an indie band that made it ...

Album art reviews

For the last six or so months I've been writing a weekly album art review column called Sound by Its Cover for East Bay Express newspaper's music blog, Ear Bud . Its been getting a good response, so I decided to build out the concept a bit. I've reserved SoundByItsCover.com and put up a preliminary ...

I agree. I am so goddam shocked at the amount of press Anna Nicole and Imus are getting. I couldn't give a flying fuck about either, really. Why must so many media outlets endlessly fixate on these non-issues? Dammit!

I just think Sonic Youth is wildly overrated, is all. I imagine you haven't heard Daydream Nation ? That shit's good. Forgot all their other releases (well, don't), but Daydream Nation is their most accessible and quintessential and triumphant release. Listen and you'll like it. On another note, I ...

A good friend of mine legally changed his name back in the early 90s to Apple Zephilius Egrek. To this day when he runs into anybody who calls him "Steve" he ignores them as if they're talking to someone else. Funny, I was born Apple Zephilius Egrek, but changed it to Kevin when I was 18.

Holy Fuck! (that better?) Chicago's David Vandervelde...

The Moonstation House Band (awesome name) came out in Jan. on Secretly Canadian. Shades of Bowie and Bolan. Really fuckin good. Go here right now and listen t...
