  Here’s a quick look ahead at a handful of Q1 Alt/Indie tracks that have caught my ear in advance of their respective album’s release.  If this is any indication, 2017 is going to be a vibrant year for electronically-influenced indie-pop and indie-rock, with the likes of The Flaming Lips, The xx, Dirty Projectors, and […]

Welcome back to Sputnik’s weekly news! After a short break we’re happy to be posting for the first time in 2017, on the prowl for the year’s best releases in every genre.  For each album, you’ll be able to peruse the artwork, genre(s), label information, and any existing full album streams. This is our list of […]

Foreword: Hailing from Long Island, NY, The Republic of Wolves are a five-piece rock band with an aggressive edge and boundless creativity.  They’ve earned something of a cult following in the darker alt-rock scene, with their earliest releases drawing influence from acts such as Brand New and Glassjaw.  They’ve set themselves further apart with each subsequent release though, the most recent being 2013’s No Matter […]

It’s a grand celebration!  The SMA’s are back for the third and possibly final time, and quite frankly even that’s a miracle.  But I forced myself to have time to host one more of these god forsaken best-of-Barnes & Nobles (I upgraded from buying all my CD’s at Target, bitches) and we find ourselves at […]

It goes without saying that Brand New are a staple “Sputnik” band, and I mean that less in the sense that the site in any way gave rise to the band’s popularity and more in the sense that we’ve unquestionably worshiped them as a deity since 2006.  They’re not the only band that we’ve collectively fawned […]

Compared to other election years – notably 2004 – the last couple political seasons have seemed rather dry musically.  Maybe it’s because we were all more or less in agreement that Obama was better than McCain and Romney, I don’t know.  But as we find ourselves approaching the final weeks of quite possibly the most […]
