“Laredo” is the second new song and the first official single from Band of Horses’ third album Infinite Arms which may redeem the band from the luke warm received last release “Compliments”.

FREE MP3: THE CINNAMON BAND: I’M ASKING YOU

Songwriter/guitarist John Harouff and Drummer Neil Campbell are the two heavy-hitting henchmen behind The Cinnamon Band who make one hell of a first impression. Growing up in Staunton, VA and playing in bands together since age twelve, the two first won attention as high school students comprising two-thirds of the shapeshifting noise-pop act The Union […]

BON IVER: BON IVER

[rating: 5 stars] Bon Iver: Bon Iver Label: Jagjaguwar Release date:  June 21, 2011 When Justin Vernon holed himself up in a remote cabin, writing For Emma, Forever Ago, there is no way he could have foreseen the span of impact his album would exonerate, nor could anyone else.  Like a folk story echoed from generations […]

SURFER BLOOD: ASTRO COAST

[rating:4] Surfer Blood: Astro Coast Label: Kanine Record Release Date: January 19,2010 I have a tendency to review “guitar bands” because that’s what I generally listen to and love. With a name like Surfer Blood, I had a preconceived notion that the West Palm Beach, Florida band, would summon Dick Dale style guitar and brutally aggressive […]

FLEET FOXES: SUN GIANT

Fleet Foxes: Sun Giant Label: Sub Pop Release Date: April 8, 2008 This EP is both a warm up for the upcoming Fleet Foxes LP and a declaration of who they are, which is a musically more interesting version of the My Morning Jacket formula.

Great Moments in Mustache Music History: 1967-1991

The Mustache has always been a politically-charged form of expression. It’s been banned by kings, forbidden by employers and used historically as a form of social protest. For those outside of hipster enclaves, dated porn studios and Pedophiles Anonymous,  the popularity of this once glorious grooming practice may reached a low-point in the United States. […]

TOP TEN BEST BEARDS IN INDIE

We hate pushing the seasons, but with “Mustache March” now well behind us, we’ve started ruminating on beard season here.  While, musicians have always rocked out playoff whiskers, the chin muffler has advantaged some, and been the demise of others. Think Dennis Wilson, and Jim Morrison, respectively (sorry Jim). But what about the indie beard? […]

GREAT MOMENTS IN MUSTACHE MUSIC HISTORY: 1991: ENTER SANDMAN

1991: Stache-Metal pioneer Judas Priest may have ushered the hardcore machismo aesthetic into metal subculture, but Metallica shanghaied the torch, taking the facial incarnation of anti-authority to the top of the charts…and into the suburban mall.  Metallica’s 1991 performance of  “Enter Sandman” in Monsters of Rock in Moscow is not only a consummate moment in the band’s epic stache-metal career, but […]

MEW: INTRODUCING PALACE PLAYERS

Introducing, “Introducing Palace Players”. Martin de Thura directs this video for Danish progressive indie rockers, Mew. Its a fairly offbeat video that features a 21st century forest, a possessed car, floating rocks that shoot laser beams, frogs, horses,and lots of fog. Mmmmmk. There is really no linear narrative here and the sooner you accept that […]
