– By Brandon Callies RATING: “PUSH PLAY” Editors perfect dark indie rock with their new album The Weight Of Your Love. It’s almost as if Ian Curtis never died and Joy Division never split up Songs like “The Weight” and “A Ton Of Love” are incredibly powerful, and it’s this type of songwriting that separates Editors fro…

– By Brandon Callies – RATING: “PUSH PLAY” Iggy and the Stooges’ latest release Ready To Die bleeds rock n roll excess. Nothing is taboo with this band of aging degenerates, and the proof can be found in songs like ” Burn” and “Sex and Money.” “Job” is the ultimate slacker anthem, but if anybody can convince one to thr…

– By Michal Elizabeth Smith – RATING: “PUSH PLAY” New Orleans rock duo Generationals deliver brilliantly on their third full studio album, Heza.

Instead the mood is much more refined, and just as impres…

– By Brandon Callies – RATING: “PUSH PLAY” Ours revisits their early sound on their new record Ballet the Boxer 1, and it’s a welcome homecoming. The band has kept their fans waiting since 2008’s Mercy, Dancing For The Death Of An Imaginary Enemy for a new release, but the wait has not been in vain. The album starts wi…

Trees (Dallas, TX) – By James Villa – Los Angeles’ black and white The Neighbourhood and tour mates The 1975 swept through Dallas’ Trees last night, and we’ll have a review of the night’s events later on.  But if this picture can tell you the 1000 words, then perhaps you already know what happened? “Sweater Weather“ TH…
