Coriky (Dischord). Review by Scott Adams.
S/T (Dischord). Review by Scott Adams.
All At Once (Don Giovanni Records). Review by May Terry.
The rise of punk in our nation’s capital gets chronicled in Salad Days.
Pioneering ’90s emo band Rye Coalition were close enough to stardom to taste it. So what happened?
Fugazi Edits. Review by Julius C. Lacking.
What happens when a lost classic gets found? In the hands of Black Tambourine, the musical world becomes a better place, turns out. Matthew Moyer corrals the members of the once-forgotten noisepop band to get the whole sordid take on their expanded Black Tambourine reissue.
Akashic Press expands, redesigns, and re-releases Mark Anderson and Mark Jenkins‘s invaluable DIY learning tool, Dance of Days. Even better, it’s just as energizing as the first read. What were YOU up to at age 16?
Walking Papers EP (Grand Palace). Review by Eric J. Iannelli.
Punctuated Equilibrium (Southern Lord). Review by Matthew Moyer.
1347ad (Human Inhuman/ Worldeater). Review by Jen Cray.
Ghosts in the City (24 Hour Service Station). Review by Jen Cray.
Satellite Bay (Viva Hate Records). Review by S D Green.
Pat Graham brings the DC-centric goods in this new collection of over a decade’s worth of his music photos. Matthew Moyer feels like he has an all-access pass.
O-Rock 105.9 may have really dropped the ball on this year’s annual No Snow Show by splitting it into two separate shows, but at least they scored Jimmy Eat World and Silverchair to co-headline the second night of the event. Jen Cray was amongst the masses at Orlando’s House of Blues trying to convince themselves that the pair was enough to justify the pricey ticket.
Smile For Them (Sire). Review by Jen Cray.
