Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band: Tiny Desk Concert

Friday, July 15, 2016

There's a point when a jam is just a jam, but when a jam becomes a journey... man. Here, the instrumental rock band turns and churns its long-form compositions into new forms.

Viking's Choice: SubRosa, 'Wound Of The Warden'

Monday, July 11, 2016

The Salt Lake City metal band draws no line between beauty and doom. This 13-minute track shifts from a cautious prayer to swirling damnation in crushing riffs and a duo of violins.

Thursday, July 07, 2016

Brought together by a shared love of R.E.M., Pylon and The B-52s, the Atlanta rock band navigates kudzu-thick paths in a love song inspired by T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land.

First Listen: Inter Arma, 'Paradise Gallows'

Thursday, June 30, 2016

The Richmond metal band's new album both expands and contracts the realms of extreme music; it's huge in scope and sound, with instrumental passages that take their time even as they destroy.

Viking's Choice: Dogbreth, 'Hoarder House'

Dogbreth's huggable power-pop is the work of punks who write youthful, larger-than-life songs that still wrinkle at the edges.

Songs We Love: D∆WN, 'Not Above That'

Friday, June 24, 2016

Viking's Choice: The Wilful Boys, '621'

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

The New York band has one mud-crusted boot in '70s hard rock and another in punk-splattered '90s noise-rock.

Viking's Choice: Touché Amoré, 'Palm Dreams'

Monday, June 20, 2016

Coming from a post-hardcore band that's always worn a heart on its sleeve, "Palm Dreams" is wide-eyed in its heartache, brought on by a perspective found only in loss.

Songs We Love: P.S. Eliot, 'Bear Named Otis (Demo Version)'

Thursday, June 16, 2016

Viking's Choice: Norma Jean, '1,000,000 Watts'

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

In the early 2000s, Norma Jean helped give metalcore its shape, but has smartly grown with its fan base. The band's seventh album, Polar Similar, colors the chaos with brooding hues.
