Release Radar: Sannhet – So Numb

The onslaught of new releases continues this week – Sept. is crushing it!  While I’m not excited by this release, my curiosity will get the best of me hoping that the Foo Fighters change things up a bit with their new album “Concrete and Gold”, I have to respect Myrkur for attempting to play black metal as a solo female in […]

Real Love Baby by Father John Misty

Noteworthy releases this week I’ll be checking out include potty-mouth pop singer Tove Lo’ssubdued sophomore album “Lady Wood”, the first album from Nick Valensi guitarist from the Strokes and four other musician friends recording as CRX with “New Skin”, Bay Area thrash metal stalwarts Testament unleash “Brotherhood of the Snake” and Philly pop-punk band Mannequin […]

Human Performance by Parquet Courts

Notable new releases this week are completely overshadowed by the Sunday digital release of Radiohead’s 9th studio album (could it be their last?) “A Moon Shaped Pool”.  This is all I’ve been listening to all week in the car, and it’s a pretty incredible piece of work.  It’s a moody, mellow effort and loaded with […]

Imani, Vol. 1 (Favorites) by Blackalicious

Blackalicious are a Bay Area rap act that got their start back in ’87 when founding members rapper Gift of Gab and DJ/producer Chief Xcel met when they were students at John F.

My love is cool (Favorites) by Wolf Alice

Samson by Regina Spektor

The first time I heard this song was on The Voice (performance below) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-hh5WOz8RY I couldn’t believe it–had I heard this Regina Spektor song before? It turns out this song is older…regardless, I decided to post this song, in the spirit of timeless music; lasting forever. Until next time…get LOUD AND NOISY!
