Cornerstone 2003: Liz’s Diary, June 29
You Forgot It in People by Broken Social Scene (Review)
An album full of uplifting pop rock songs that are some of the best and most listenable in recent memory.
Minor Shadows by 1 Mile North (Review)
There’s a genuine soul residing in this music, a gentle presence that is always welcome.
Macross Zero, Episode 1 by Shoji Kawamori (Review)
Even if you finish the episode a little confused on the plot (and you will), you’ll still be blown away by the episode’s visuals.
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie by Shinichiro Watanabe (Review)
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie is easily one of the most entertaining movies I’ve seen all year, easily holding its own with any of the big summer blockbusters.
S.T.R.E.E.T. D.A.D. by Out Hud (Review)
Holy crap… did I just use “fun, funky vibe” to describe a Kranky release?
Velocity : Design : Comfort by Sweet Trip (Review)
Takes Darla’s signature drum n’ bliss sound and gives it a healthy and heartfelt upgrade.
Concert Review: Tie These Hands, Ester Drang, Starflyer 59 (June 16, 2003, Omaha, NE)
Concert Review: Marianas (June 15, 2003, Lincoln, NE)
Each time I see Marianas is almost like seeing them for the first time, only better.
