LIVE REVIEW: Sophie Meiers @ Baby’s All Right

In the bar prior to the start of the show, I notice a girl behind me by her soft laugh that contrasted the sad clown makeup dripping down her eyes. Heavy BDSM-inspired leather jewelry, fishnet fingerless gloves, and torn-up knee-high socks weigh down her 5'3" stature. Commanding attention in the most unassuming way, this girl [...]

ALBUM REVIEW: Happyness “Write In”

photo by Emilla Orving They’ve done it again. My favorite (contemporary) British trio is back with a follow up to their 2015 debut Weird Little Birthday. If Happyness have given me anything aside from ace interview material and two years of fabulous music, they have laid the groundwork for something very dear to [...]

TRACK REVIEW: Stonefield “Sister”

Life is tough, and sometimes you need a dense track to complement that type of outlook. If you've found yourself in need of this type of song lately, then search no further than Stonefield's track "Sister." It's the perfect descriptor for a quartet of Aussie sisters who have been playing together since the youngest was only seven, [...]

LIVE REVIEW: Girl Band @ Saint Vitus

It’s been a year since I last saw Girl Band, and I’m a bit more prepared this time around. Boots: check. Pulled-back hair: check. Pre-show snack: check. Purse-less. That’s the big one. After getting caught in a swirl of flailing bodies at their last New York gig, I’ve consolidated my belongings into a jacket instead. [...]

TRACK PREMIERE: Mimi Raver “Creatures Of Habit”

The album art for Mimi Raver’s upcoming LP ’06 Female will give you an insight into the songwriter’s knack for duality. At first glance, the cover for Raver’s imminent release bears the precious, painterly image of a grey tabby, sitting pretty by a Kelly green couch. On closer inspection: droplets of blood color the cat’s [...]

EP REVIEW: Roland Tings “Each Moment a Diamond”

True to its title, Roland Tings' newest collection is sparkly and shined to perfection. To create this album, the Berlin-based, Melbourne-native producer worked through an obsessive routine where he repeated the same simple actions every day, like the route he took the studio or what he ate for breakfast. This structure aided the keen editing attention to [...]

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Wayfarers “KINGS”

Wayfarers' newest track "KINGS" is an anthem of empowerment, specifically that which can be found through music. With short claps throughout and a catchy yet minimalistic backing, it's impossible to not get a surge of confidence while listening to "KINGS." It's a throwback for many listeners to that moment when they first heard a specific song [...]

EP REVIEW: Milo Greene’s “Never Ender”

New music from Milo Greene is always exciting, and the group has been actively building up to their next great release after 2015's Control. The quartet released their latest EP Never Ender through Nettwerk Music Group in February, and it holds much the same energy of past releases: a dark and somber mood mixed with vibrant, ethereal [...]
