In which I make jokes about: Daniel Chick, Charlie Pickering, Nova Scotian fishing fleets, Pauline Hanson, Adam Sandler, the Pigeon Detectives and many, many other things.
Also, it’s about bands you should make sure you still like. Because they’re good. Have a read here.
The Sword: a bunch of rad Austin longhairs.
Low Country: the companion record to last year’s High Country.
The cool part: It’s sludgy psyche-metal songs done acoustic gothic country. And it’s awesome. Read my review of Low Country right here.
Against Me! and Laura Jane Grace have been making essential punk albums for the past decade-plus… and Shape Shift With Me is no exception. You want angry relationship identity punk? You got it, kid. Check out my review of Shape Shift With Me for Rolling Stone right here.
Yeah! Of Mice & Men shred. Find out just how much shredding they get into* on their new album Cold World in my review of it for Rolling Stone right here.
*hint: It’s a lot
“…they trade in memorable pop songs that are almost instantly forgettable…”
Check out what else I had to say* in my Rolling Stone review of the new record from hat-wearing indie-hippies Grouplove, Big Mess, right here.
*Hint: It’s not as bad as you might think
