Music | CD Revue: Mush Records

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Jan 7,2009 - n Ten Years of Mush Records Mixtape nA while back, I had the grand idea to make a mix CD with no track breaks; the record would be one continuous track composed of individual songs edited together with sparse transitions. My intention was purely selfish: This format would force the listener through my picks without the ability to skip the ones they might not like while I laughed from my High Thron...

Music | CD Revue: Death Cab for Cutie & Pavement Reissues

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Nov 19,2008 - nPavement Brighten the Corners nDeath Cab for Cutie Something About Airplanes n nI find it very hard to listen to ’90s music.

Music | CD Revue: Pontiak & Angela Desveaux

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Sep 10,2008 - Pontiak Sun on Sun It’s rare to find a band so immersed in their surroundings as Pontiak. Hailing from Virginia, every track on Sun on Sun drips with backwoods rural rock that us cityfolk often find unnerving. The album opens with “Shell...

By Circus Brown
POSTED // Aug 13,2008 - Navigator Songs for Mei and Satsuki At first listen one might think that Elephant 6 was back in business and dropping albums from Farmington, Utah. This punk-indielicious sounding album might be Navigator’s seminal release—10 tracks of sweet...

By Dominique LaJeunesse
POSTED // Jul 23,2008 - RuRu Elizabeth When I first pushed play, “Why” had me thinking Elizabeth (Northplatte Records) would be an upbeat alt-country album, but it quickly wandered down a path of candid, melancholy tracks and stayed the course. RuRu, aka Isaac...

POSTED // Jul 16,2008 - Death By Salt Vol. 4 Avant music is to the music world what Andres Serrano’s “Piss Christ”—ya know, that photograph of a crucified Jesus submerged in the artist’s urine that ruffled all those upper-crust feathers back...
