Soren Well

July 9th, 2009

Hearing that a band is from Brooklyn may predetermine your attitude towards it, but good music rises above petty biases, good or bad. Soren Well is a quintet from the aforementioned trendy borough that plays a frighteningly accurate amalgamation of Loveless-era shoegaze with showers of guitars and dreamscape vocals. The tonal similarities to My Bloody […]

Try some Cotton Candy

June 12th, 2009

So, I was just browsing for records recently at Lunchbox Records in Charlotte, NC (an awesome record store, by the way) when I happened across a 7″ by a band called Cotton Candy. The clerk had written “Mark Robinson” on a sticker above the price tag, which is why I picked it up. Well, because […]

This clip is of “All Souls Day” off their second album (technically, their third if you count that self-titled Honey Bear release) New Plastic Ideas; no idea when this footage was recorded, but […]

Cursive “From the Hips” video

March 27th, 2009

Cursive’s “From the Hips” took a few listens before I became obsessed with it. Now, I simply can’t get enough. Their wildly raucous recent performance on Letterman sealed the deal for me. Tim Kasher’s had the dynamics game in his pocket for years, but now he’s able to spin a yarn that’s not claustrophobic and […]

Harlem “Witch Greens” video

February 10th, 2009

The garage rock schtick has been done to death, but there’s always room for when it’s done well. Harlem is your band. Mixing in a bit of frantic, Pixies-style unpredictability with its retro-kitsch harmonies, Austin’s Harlem knows how to make a glorious lo-fi racket. I recommend listening to “The South of France” on the band’s […]
