Music, Reviewed The Fucking Champs

The Fucking Champs

The Fucking Champs lapped Led Zeppelin a few years ago in their quest for metal dominance. The muted power chord chops that the former band, now joined by Trans Am's Phil Manley, lift from weak, blues-based rock puts the Champs…

Cyann & Ben

From the first candied vocal harmonies that float in over a morose bed of guitars and keys on Cyann & Ben's new full-length, the French quartet's shoegazer fixation rings out loud and clear. In the tradition of My Bloody Valentine,…
