Songs We Love: Gimmer Nicholson, 'Hermetic Waltz'

Thursday, February 04, 2016

#TBT back to Memphis 1968, and an acoustic guitarist bridging Southern folk and then-undiscovered musical lands.


First Listen: Ty Segall, 'Emotional Mugger'

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Carrying on the non-stop activity of the last eight years, the prolific rocker's 10th solo album feels as fractured and delirious as anything he's recorded.


Songs We Love: Woods, 'Sun City Creeps'

Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Referencing the cult favorites Sun City Girls, Brooklyn's lo-fi folk-pop concern moves into a late-evening vibe full of mariachi horns, hazy psychedelia and cinematic intrigue.


First Listen: Fuzz, 'II'

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Ty Segall's power trio heaves forth a 14-song double album that's made for headbanging and the cultivation of bad vibes, as if all the warmth and goodwill of last year's Manipulator had turned to ash.


First Listen: Wavves, 'V'

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

As the leader of Wavves, Nathan Williams has spent five albums grafting big emotions onto a restless runaround of energetic pop-punk and stoner fuzz.


First Listen: Dungen, 'Allas Sak'

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

The paths forged by the boundary-pushing Swedish psych-rock band have gotten harder to define, but they're also more rewarding to follow.


Songs We Love: Wand, 'Dungeon Dropper'

Wednesday, September 02, 2015

More two-minute, psychedelic garage-rock from the prolific Los Angeles trio, packing purist intentions and an inescapable weirdness.


First Listen: Diane Coffee, 'Everybody's A Good Dog'

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Foxygen's Shaun Fleming aspires to a '70s ideal that rolls up sugarcoated bubblegum glam, soul balladry, Francophone pop and echoes of the Brill Building.


Songs We Love: Woolen Men, 'Clean Dreams'

Monday, August 24, 2015

Finding inspiration in 1980s American punk, to battle the artisanal Armageddons of hyper-development with guitar aggression.


First Listen: White Reaper, 'White Reaper Does It Again'

Wednesday, July 08, 2015

On its first full-length album, the freewheeling Louisville band plays to classic rock 'n' roll ideals while simultaneously trying to dissolve them in acid.


First Listen: Daughn Gibson, 'Carnation'

Sunday, May 24, 2015

On his surprising, complex third album, Gibson outlines dark and alluring tales of horror and despair, human struggle and eternal regret.


First Listen: The Vaccines, 'English Graffiti'

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Always provocative, the band jettisons post-punk thrash in favor of a sturdier Top 40 pop sound that recalls the early to mid-'80s.


First Listen: Jackson Scott, 'Sunshine Redux'

Sunday, April 19, 2015

If the psych-rock practitioner's goal is to disorient, he's succeeded. But Scott accomplishes it with the tuneful exuberance required to bring so many elements together.


First Listen: JEFF The Brotherhood, 'Wasted On The Dream'

Sunday, March 15, 2015

Squaring up with JEFF The Brotherhood at any time during its career has been mercifully simple: Come for the riffs, stay for the riffs. Hand, make horns. Horns, meet sky.


First Listen: Lightning Bolt, 'Fantasy Empire'

Sunday, March 08, 2015

The duo takes a few steps toward modernity on Fantasy Empire, which finds Lightning Bolt moving away from congested, low-fidelity sounds in the pursuit of studio clarity.


First Listen: The Pop Group, 'Citizen Zombie'

Sunday, February 15, 2015

Recording a reunion album after 35 years, the defiant and inventive British band meets the modern era head-on, tempering its dystopias with the rhythms required to move bodies and open minds.


First Listen: Viet Cong, 'Viet Cong'

Sunday, January 11, 2015

The band's frigid, deafening, brutalist post-punk nods toward experimentalism. A massive production, Viet Cong's self-titled debut culminates in a furious bonfire of rage and release.


First Listen: Two Inch Astronaut, 'Foulbrood'

Sunday, November 16, 2014

On its second album, the D.C.-area duo borrows heavily from the legacy of Dischord Records โ€” at times recalling Fugazi, Smart Went Crazy and Shudder To Think โ€” while still sounding fresh and vital.


First Listen: Hookworms, 'The Hum'

Sunday, November 02, 2014

On its second album, the Leeds band is beholden to a motorik beat and the pulse it leaves behind. But Hookworms' members also explore the energy and chaos that such a solid anchor can provide.


First Listen: Thurston Moore, 'The Best Day'

Sunday, October 12, 2014

In the wake of Sonic Youth's collapse, Moore's new solo album is almost calming in its familiarity, particularly as it recalls a minor-key update of SY's well-loved late-'90s salvo A Thousand Leaves.
