Celeste – Morte(s) Nee(s)

Thursday, April 8th, 2010 by Eric Loose

France’s Celeste have been busy in the business of uneasy tension. Their third full-length album in 3 years, Morte(s) Nee(s) continues in the tried-and-true tradition of harsh, melancholic, and brooding music. In 2010, Celeste reveals themselves to be more than simply a mirror of their French screamo counterparts Sed Non Satiata or Amanda Woodward. A tinge of black metal can certainly be felt here or there, but Celeste is really a screamo band at heart – and it fully embraces this quality on Morte(s) Nee(s). Heavy and dissonant, Celeste craft a distinct sound that’s sure to turn many away. The brooding atmosphere gets tiring, sure, but it never feels redundant or overused throughout the album’s 42-minutes. (more…)

Groove Armada – Black Light

Thursday, April 8th, 2010 by Ryan Nisley

Released in early March, the newest album from Groove Armada entitled Black Light reveals a darker side of the electronic duo.  This time around, the group collaborated with vocalists featuring Nick Littlemore and SaintSaviour.  What makes this album unique is that there are no purely instrumental tracks, and there seems to be a theme that flows through each song.  This theme radiates a feeling of love lost in tracks like “Cards to Your Heart” and “Not Forgotten,” both featuring vocals by Nick Littlemore.

First Quarter Report

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010 by Eric Loose

2010 seemed to start out a bit slowly, but sure did it pick up impressively. The heavyweight matches don’t take place until later in the year between Radiohead, Minus the Bear, The Gaslight Anthem, Jonsi, and a slew returning big names. The main trend, it seems, among the first quarter of 2010’s best comes from the refinement or subtle changes in a band’s sound. Rather than recreating the promising albums of the past, Titus Andronicus, Beach House, and Frightened Rabbit refused to regurgitate the same album that first garnered them a fair amount of credibility. Instead, the commencement of the decade has opened with evolving bands – sometimes for better, other times, not so much – and I find it heartening. On that note of evolution, risk-taking, and utter surprise, I give you the best of the best in the first quarter of 2010… (more…)

Queens Club – Young Giant

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010 by Ryan Nisley

Besides a really cool design on their album cover, Queens Club rocks out with some great tunes.  The band assembled in 2008 and is composed of the ex-members of the metal band The Chariot.  Their new CD, Young Giant, was recently released on Tooth and Nail Records, which has signed similar popular bands like Anberlin.  As I listened to the album, I was struck by the catchy guitar riffs and the energy that this group generates.  This CD is packed with a number of great songs that are all worth listening to.

Brand New – Daisy

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010 by Eric Loose

It’s hard not to have a strong opinion on Brand New”s brand new release, Daisy. The colossal wave of hype surrounding this album wasn”t replicated by any other band this year. Jesse Lacey and the rest had their destiny decided for them. Because of the expectations, Daisy was going to be a massive hit or a disappointment. Please excuse me for thinking that it doesn”t live up to either of these labels. Daisy, first and foremost, is what Brand New does best- progression. From the pop-punk of Your Favourite Weapon, to the emo-tinged Deja Entendu, to the masterpiece The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me, Brand New have managed to adapt and improve their sound while still remaining appealing and interesting.

Touche Amore – …To The Beat of a Dead Horse

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010 by Eric Loose

Touche Amore”s … To The Beat Of A Dead Horse, is a record to take seriously. One look at the ominous cover can tell you that. A harrowing black and white cover complete with trite symbolism in the form of a foreboding rain cloud certainly displays a feeling of danger, ominousness, and even foreboding doom. Touche Amore are just one of the many recent bands to integrate emo and hardcore music. The most striking aspect is that no song hurdles the 3 minute mark. Short and pithy, … To The Beat is a screamo-influenced modern hardcore record with a melodic twist. Too much genre?… my apologies, but … To The Beat Of A Dead Horse really is a superb blend of genre-bending qualities. (more…)

Top 40 for the Week of 3.22.10

Monday, March 22nd, 2010 by Rich Rodrigues

This week, Dan Black remains at #1, while Frightened Rabbit and Shooter Jennings see big debuts into the Top 40. Who knows how long Dan Black will retain the coveted number one position! This week’s chart is inspired by Northern Iowa’s Ali Farokhmanesh and his ability to destroy NCAA brackets. I’m losing money over this guy! Who the hell does he think he is? I guess I should stop betting, but that would be logical. (more…)
