Sufjan Stevens – “Impossible Soul” though I know it’s small, I want love for us all So, anyone got a spare 30 minutes to listen to a pop track?  I know, it’s easy to approach songs that lengthy with trepidation; usually they’re either a bloated mess, annoyingly repetitive, or worse yet – they do that pointless “hidden track” thing where they […]


Titus Andronicus – “A More Perfect Union” tramps like us, baby, we were born to die The weight of 2019 is bearing down on us.  As the final stop in a 10 year waiting period – which started waaay back when the staff punctuated their 2000-2009 list with a Jane Doe victory – there’s an awful […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 30.

Founding bassist Olli-Pekka Laine […]


50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 50. Cursive – Vitriola [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Facebook] It’s probably been since 2006’s The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me since I’ve heard a band this accurately summarize a total loss of hope and innocence. The overarching theme damns both politics and society, deeming both “fucked” as guitar chords slash away […]
