Music, Hear This Woods @ The Chapel

Woods @ The Chapel

At this point in Woods' career, it's almost strange for a full calendar year to pass without a new album from the band. This April, the band dropped its ninth full-length record, City Sun Eater in the River of Light,…

Spindrift @ Slim's

The brainchild of Kirkpatrick Thomas and a shifting cast of wildly talented musicians, Spindrift has spent the last two-plus decades as an integral part of the West Coast psychedelic rock scene. Since it formed in 1992, Thomas and company have…

Seattle Rockers Tacocat Make Feminist Punk For A Post-Riot Grrrl World

Tacocat does not write hardcore songs — it's a pop-punk band. And yet, as of its latest European tour, it is officially an honorary hardcore band. It all happened one night in Copenhagen. The band's tour manager, Rafael, had his…

Vinyl Williams @ Brick & Mortar Music Hall

Vinyl Williams made a name for himself by taking neo-psychedelic pop to its most kaleidoscopic extreme. Culling inspiration from hippie culture and Ancient Egypt in equal measure, Williams creates sonic tapestries in step with the traditions of his '60s and…

Music, Hear This Fear of Men @ Swedish American Hall

Fear of Men @ Swedish American Hall

Don't let its name throw you off: Fear of Men is not a feminist punk band. It is, however, one of England's most ear-catching and evocative dream pop outfits, anchored by frontwoman Jess Weiss' lilting alto. Reminiscent of Lush and…

This Way Of Feeling: Big Thief Talk Songwriting, Vulnerability, And Growing Old

Like any other profession, there are myriad reasons people become musicians. Drugs, booze, and groupies are among the most famous, as is the sort of validation that comes only from a crowd screaming your name. Making buckets of money…

Love, Death and Los Angeles: La Luz Flies Its Surf Rock South

Shana Cleveland doesn’t want to tell you her life story. As the frontwoman and primary lyricist of surf-rock foursome La Luz, she’s out to tap into something much simpler, more poignant, and thoroughly universal. So while she’s certainly drawing…

"Some Dudes" Made A Record: Twin Peaks Talk Massachusetts, Touring, and Jeopardy!

If the marijuana legalization movement ever grows tired of “The Next Episode” by Dr. Dre – you know, the “smoke weed every day” song that everyone mistakenly attributes to Snoop Dogg – perhaps they should commission Twin Peaks to…

Music, Hear This Twin Peaks @ The Independent

Twin Peaks @ The Independent

In an age when irony and apathy are valuable musical currency, Twin Peaks' no-holds-barred sincerity is as surprising as it is disarming. They still behave like the goofy high school friends they were when the band formed, making faces in…

The Bilinda Butchers @ Swedish American Hall

It's one thing to share a musical hero with your bandmates; it's quite another to name your band after said musical hero. Enter San Francisco's The Bilinda Butchers, named in homage of Bilinda Butcher, the guitarist for shoegaze pioneers My…

Bows Unleash A Sci-Fi Odyssey of a Debut Album

Don't call Bows a band. It's not that Kaila McIntyre-Bader and Luke Bace have an aversion to the term. It's just that the Berkeley duo would rather be described as a "recording collaboration." Former members of the Bay Area band…

The Coathangers @ The Fillmore

Atlanta's most famous musicians may be of the rap and hip-hop persuasions, but to pretend the city is a one-genre pony is an insult to The Coathangers. The ATL's hardest-rocking daughters cut their teeth in the local punk scene, releasing…

Five On It: Five Under-The-Radar Bay Area Bands You Must Hear

One thing no one can seem to agree on is whether the Bay Area music scene is dead, dying, alive, enjoying a renaissance, or fading away. If you’re like me, you’ve heard (and participated in) enough dumb arguments about the…

Preserve and Pervert: Seratones on Southern Rock, Pushing Boundaries, and PWR BTTM

Seratones are ready to have the damn baby. Figuratively speaking, that is. The Shreveport, Louisiana-based quartet is counting the days until May 6, the day their debut album Get Gone officially drops. “I just want to hold the record…

A Slightly Different Character: Alex Turner On The Last Shadow Puppets, Shifting Mindsets, And Jetlag

Alex Turner needs a nap. “I’m riding a really fucking wild wave of jetlag,” the co-frontman of The Last Shadow Puppets confesses to me a few minutes into our interview. He blames his recent jaunts between Heathrow and JFK…

Every Night in Every City: Hinds On Touring, Feminism, And The Strokes

I catch Carlotta Cosials, one-quarter of Spanish garage rockers Hinds, at a rare lull in an otherwise hectic schedule. She’s relaxing in a hotel room in New York City with her bandmates, awaiting their sold-out headline show at The…

Live Review: I Was The Youngest Person at a Smashing Pumpkins Show And It Was Super Weird

Smashing Pumpkins Liz Phair March 25, 2016 The Masonic As a ‘90s-baby-turned-twenty-something, I pretty much exist to remind people 35 and over just how long it’s been since the ‘90s. And there were a lot of people over the…

Your Indie Heroes Will Betray You: The Last Shadow Puppets, Rachel Brodsky, and Confronting Sexual Harassment in Music

Full disclosure: I love The Last Shadow Puppets. I spent the summer of 2013 playing their lone album on repeat and spent the next three years all but resigned to the fact that the band was a glorious one-off.…
