POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - JUCIFER War Bird **** This six-song EP steers away from Jucifer’s psychotic-dance elements and concentrates more on technical metal maneuverings while still retaining a solid wall of tortured guitar sludge. “Haute Couture” is the “peppiest,”...

POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - WORM IS GREEN Automagic **** In a nutshell, Worm is Green, from Iceland, is the electronic swirling and diving of a slocore Tortoise spiced with the spacey, intense trip-hop beats of Portishead and the buttery ambience of Sigur Ros (delivered more darkly)....

POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - COOPER TEMPLE CLAUSE Kick Up the Fire and Let the Flames Break Loose **** Somewhere between the dark, washy semi-sobriety of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the angular, floating, avant-garde basslines of Radiohead exists a land enshrouded in a fascinating...

POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - F-MINUS Wake Up Screaming **** A wall of scalding lava is flooding down the mountainside to eat away your greedy, deceitful, conformist flesh with blazing heat, leaving only clean bone. F-Minus’ über-furious brand of raw, authentic ’80s...

POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - JILL SCOTT Beautifully Human **** Did you know Jill Scott appeared on Sesame Street for its 33rd anniversary? That’s hot. Kickin’ it old-school R& , Jill combines the class and soul of ’70s divas like Diana Ross with ’50s...
