Lips That Taste of Tears by Trembling Blue Stars (Review)
Cool September Skies by LN (Review)
t’s pretty obvious what kind of sound they’re going for, and it’s not a bad sound.
Antarctica (Bliss Out, Vol. 2) by Windy & Carl (Review)
Fans of a slower, instrumental Slowdive, or any floaty, droney should probably check this out.
Mad for Sadness by Arab Strap (Review)
Somehow the recording of the concert has become a classic anyway.
Lapsed by Bardo Pond (Review)
This is one dirty album, and wonderfully so at that.
Morning Light by Locust (Review)
An attempt to bridge the gap between Mark Van Hoen’s harsh earlier work and his most song-oriented material.
The Contino Sessions by Death In Vegas (Review)
It just doesn’t sound that good. Not in any sort of big dose anyway.
The Beat Assassinated by DJ Cam (Review)
It’s just a waste of talent when the extraordinary is ruined by the preposterous.
Miniature Portraits by Five Style (Review)
Five Style’s musical hyperactivity makes for an interesting, albeit exhausting listen.
What Will Become of the Key of Reason? by Mahogany (Review)
All in all, a pleasant-sounding enough EP, but nothing that will probably blow your socks off.
Moon Pix by Cat Power (Review)
Cat Power used to be one of those bands that I lumped in with “all the rest of the indie crap that’s not drone.”
Feng Shui by Doldrums (Review)
Wonderful CD, looking forward to more, and to getting the rest of this band’s back catalog.
