The autumn of 1992 was a difficult one for me. We moved to the other side of town and I started a new school. I had no friends yet and was in a broken family. It would only get worse from there, but there was always music to turn to. To fall into and lose yourself like some would to books. I was only 10 at the time but music was always […]

The cover for Black Dog Barking was striking to me. A simple artistic representation of what the title suggests. The band name seems kind of weak to me. Like an 80’s hair metal band or something. The fact that this is a Roadrunner release suggests that this should be a pretty heavy record. Released May 21, 2013 on Roadrunner Records Track listing 1. “Ready to Rock” 5:24 2. “Animalize” 3:03 3.

It mentioned that on the title track the lyric structure was was built using the Fibonacci sequence. Not only that, but also the tracks were meant to be rearranged so that they flow better. I had heard of this before, but never […]

Black Milk’s No Poison No Paradise caught my eye because of the album cover. Most hip-hop albums are just pictures of the artist. If I saw this in a store and with no other information but the cover I would think it was a psychedelic group from the 60’s or 70’s. I’m not really sure what to expect from this project yet. I haven’t heard anything about this at all. […]

Parquet Courts just seemed like an interesting name. Their album cover seemed country, but the description said punk. Looking over the tracklist I can definitely tell it has the punk influnence. There are 15 tracks clocking in at a miniscule 33:05. I’m expecting hard hitting, in your face, smash mouth punk coming out of these guys from Brooklyn. Released August 18th, 2012 on Dull Tools Re-issued January 15th, 2013 on […]

This one jumped out at me because the name, Fuck Buttons. I thought to myself, “What’s wrong with buttons? Do they like clasps better or something? Maybe switches are their thing?” I was intrigued as to why this was the name they choose. In my quick research they apparently wanted it to be “fun and abrasive”. Nailed it. I do tend to gravitate towards groups that have the cojones to […]
