On his third album, the D.I.Y. glam-rocker re-brands himself as some sort of demonic teenager. But Black Moon Spell is, at heart, the sound of one guy making sure everyone around him has a good time.
Sunday, August 24, 2014
This rowdy, ramshackle party house of a band is built on the intersecting bedrock of post-punk and indie rock. On Poor People Are Revolting, there's something crazy going on in every room.
Sunday, August 17, 2014
The British band borrows from the best to contextualize a sound that's at once heavy, sinister, tuneful and theatrical, piling on the fuzz and reverb until its songs practically foam at the mouth.
Sunday, August 17, 2014
It's a shame that the rock record of the summer had to surface at the end of the season. Segall's lush, panoramic double-album piles on glam-rock excess without ever feeling excessive.
Sunday, July 27, 2014
Frontman Dan McGee writes songs with more personality than almost any in garage rock. This album exudes the unabashed glee that comes from music played hard and with reason.
Sunday, July 13, 2014
Performing as White Fence, Tim Presley steers toward the gentle pomp of late-'60s psychedelic pop, rock and folk. Along the way, he writes to the canon from which he performs and bends it to his will.
Sunday, June 22, 2014
On its new album, the experimental pop band explores elements of gamelan, a chromatically tuned metallophone music that's been played in Asia's Pacific Rim since roughly the 8th century.
Sunday, June 15, 2014
Elephant 6 veteran Will Cullen Hart returns again as Circulatory System with a masterfully orchestrated, 31-song cycle that touches upon dreamlife and waking fears.
Sunday, June 08, 2014
The Japanese experimental outfit has always had the capacity to stun. On Noise, it surprises, too: Boris subverts expectations constantly, while retaining the core values of a heavy band.
Sunday, May 25, 2014
The Brooklyn rock band still wind-sprints with deadly efficiency. But the slower moments on Sunbathing Animal locate the essence of heartache in unexpected ways.
Monday, January 11, 2010
The former kings of Queens avant-garde, Blues Control, returned to New York City on Saturday night to play at Williamsburg venue Death By Audio.
Monday, December 07, 2009
The largely forgotten Brooklyn duo Hackamore Brick hadn’t played the venerable Village stage of the Bitter End since 1970. Yet, here they were, an unsung harmony group from the turn of the '70s, back to try again.

Doug Mosurock and Mr. Vacation have run a monthly party in Brooklyn bars since 2004. They call it Cockfight, and you can check out a special two-hour sample of their jams here.
