The Circle - Jafar Panahi

The Circle by Jafar Panahi (Review)

I found myself wondering, if the film is in any way accurate, how in the world these women could survive such pressure and fear on a daily basis.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind by Michel Gondry (Review)

2004 promises us some great movies, but by year’s end, I doubt we’ll have experienced anything quite like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Ten, Clouddead

Ten by CLOUDDEAD (Review)

More focused and concise then their debut, but still as out there as you’d expect from cLOUDDEAD.

Ten, Clouddead

Concert Review: Copeland, The Lonely Hearts, The Connotations, Lukas Hollow (March 13, 2004, Houston, TX)

Copeland exceeded all of my expectations with their sincerity and proficiency at playing fabulous rock n’ roll.
The Incomplete Triangle - Lansing-Dreiden

The Incomplete Triangle by Lansing-Dreiden (Review)

One of the most original and compelling albums, all artistic obscurity and nonsensical double-speak aside, that I’ve heard in a long time.
The North Shore, Manual

The North Shore (Bliss Out, Volume 20) by Manual (Review)

From the very first delicate wisps of sound to the last atmospheric that fades over the horizon, The North Shore rarely disappoints.
Halloween Alaska

Halloween, Alaska by Halloween, Alaska (Review)

Every time I put on the album, I find myself coming under its spell just as surely as when I first listened to it.
Seven Swans, Sufjan Stevens

Seven Swans by Sufjan Stevens (Review)

With his humility and subtlety, Stevens gets it right where so much of the “praise and worship” music out there gets it so very wrong so much of the time.
Should, Arkitekchur

Should or The Drawing Boarded Colour Target Future Theater Wars by Arkitekchur (Review)

Shimmering, beautiful post-rock shot through with darkness and anxiety.
Should, Arkitekchur

Concert Review: Namelessnumberheadman, Mr. 1986 (March 5, 2004, Kansas City, MO)
