A stripped-down film festival dips a toe into the Brave New World of masks, distancing and cinema.
Carnival Barkers (Cleave Recordings). Review by Bob Pomeroy.
Oh for the Getting and not Letting Go. Review by Jeff Schweers.
Sincerely, Severely (Orange Records). Review by Jeff Schweers.
Present Passed (Postfact Records). Review by Rose Petralia.
Distacatti and Live at WMSE. Review by Carl F Gauze.
Modest Mouse are playing bigger and bigger gigs these days. Their recent sold out show at Orlando’s House of Blues is an example. S D Green questions their modesty in light of all this popularity and new personnel.
Apple. Review by Michael Sutton.
Which Way Is Mine (Self-released). Review by Kyrby Raine.
The Sum of Our Parts (self released). Review by Jen Cray.
After fifteen years, Modest Mouse is at the top of the game. Jen Cray was one of many who felt their majesty at a recent Orlando concert.
For his first live review, Tim Wardyn brought his wife along to one of the biggest concerts of the year in one of the best venues in the nation. Once the smoke cleared (literally), one band played like it was 1985 and another acquired a new fan.
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.
Jealous Me Was Killed By Curiosity (Victory). Review by Jen Cray.
When epic indie rock that’s heavy with literary allusions, like what The Decemberists create, can sell out a large venue like the Hard Rock Live it gives Jen Cray hope for the state of music.
Snow, Mountain, Geisha (White Shoe). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Victory Records has taken a chance on an experimental indie rock band that put out one of 2006’s most exciting debuts. Moros Eros are going to blow up in 2007. Jen Cray spoke with lead singer/guitarist/lyricist, Zach Tipton, while he enjoyed what could very well be his last couple weeks of anonymity at home in Georgia.
Wolf Parade (Sub Pop). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Making Beds in a Burning House (Lookout Records). Review by Sean Slone.
That These Things Could Be Ours (Yep Roc). Review by Sean Slone.
Black Sheep Boy Appendix (Jagjaguwar). Review by Aaron Shaul.
