He needs no introduction. But here’s the quick and dirty: Anthony Fantano, aka TheNeedleDrop, is one of the most prevalent music resources on the net. He has nearly a million YouTube followers. He’s been blogging for a decade, and vlogging for roughly eight years. Fantano has an impressive output, and uploads videos at a voracious […]

Jay Gambit is the driving force behind L.A.-based experimental noise/metal/everything project Crowhurst, and feverishly produces noise music as a solo artist. He has dozens of albums to his name, and has collaborated with the likes of Today is the Day, Tanner Garza, The Body, Oxbow, Black Leather Jesus, and countless others. Last year, I reviewed […]

Greetings fellow users! As some of you are aware, I’ve started a little user review competition in which the winner receives an automatic feature, as well as a “user spotlight” session. It basically consists of an informal chat in which I ask some personal questions as well as some silly ones. This week was user […]

For those unfamiliar, Piero Scaruffi is a well-known (and, to some extent, notorious) figure in online music journalism. He runs an eponymous website/database, scaruffi.com, and his opinions regularly stir up controversy among musicians, music labels, and fans. His infamous Beatles article is still routinely copypasta’d (read: here) and gained him a spike in popularity amidst […]

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016 Artist: Psychic Teens [Bandcamp]   Considering whatever thought processes might go into choosing a single, “End” is an interesting pick for Philly post-punk act Psychic Teens. The closer appropriately feels conclusive and reflective, as though we’re given the epilogue in advance. Sonically, Psychic Teens blend both jagged and anthemic riffs under a blanket […]

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016 Artist: Drose [Bandcamp]     Ohioan drone metal band Drose create helpless, introspective music that balances muggy atmospheres with strategic pauses in energy. Vocalist Dustin Rose delivers and unconventional double presence, being almost effeminately serene one moment, and resembling a tortured Patrick-Kindlon-meets-Abe-Simpson demigod the next. “The Man” insists “I’m here! To destroy you!” in a […]

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016 Artist: Fennec [Bandcamp] Track: “Consumes You” Fennec’s newest EP, This Place Was Once a Palace, connotes either a deeply personal loss, or a perception of the current state of house music (or, it could be both). The multifaceted house producer bridges the sounds of old-school Chicago with relatable, yet minimalistic, venting. “Consumes […]

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016 Artist: Baklavaa Track: “Tampered With” Baltimore’s own Baklavaa preach the Unwounded doctrine of chaotic post-hardcore and jagged, panicky omens. “Tampered With”, a highlight from their latest effort, Dane On, is titled well. Vocalist Ted Ciafardini channels feelings of desperation and psychosis, in the midst of catchy and erratic instrumentation. It resembles someone […]
