By Mike Stringham On Friday, October 26th I got to see Minus The Bear at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park. Minus The Bear has been a staple in the genre that is math rock for nearly the last two decades. Without them, current math rock would not be where it is, almost noticeable. Some […]

Reviewed by Evan Dekens             In the tradition of artists like Cat Power and Grouper, Mother of My Children, Black Belt Eagle Scout’s debut record offers a stirring collection of dissonant tones, haunted memories, and a sleek, modern guitar sound. Katherine Paul, the woman behind Black Belt Eagle Scout, has described herself as a “radical indigenous queer feminist,” an identity very […]

By Jeffrey Alexander Lopez STRFKR at first glance glitzes and shines like a 1980’s pop band, toying and testing the limits of the synthesizer, but at a closer glimpse beams to a more psychedelic synth. Of all the adjectives that best fit the band and their style, “futuristic and spacey” comes to mind. Borrowing from […]

By Mike Stringham I got to see Modest Mouse at Wellmont Theater on Wednesday, October 10th. Having seen them last year, I was excited to get to review them for a second consecutive year. I didn’t catch the opening band, but I’m almost certain they had an awful name.   Anyway, it seemed as if […]

Review by Nate Williams Rating: 10/10 Ritual Unions It’s rare that I consider a musical performance perfect, I don’t even give myself that satisfaction after a well-received performance. So when I tell you that Swedish electronic band Little Dragon’s concert at Elsewhere Hall in Brooklyn was perfect beyond description, you know that I mean it. Opening […]

Reviewed by Stacy Fernandez Sweetener by Ariana Grande is a refreshing and creative album that gives music a new definition. She gives her fans a taste of her wicked range, creativity and personality. This album is an amazing combination of Pop and R&B. My three personal favorites are “breathin”, “NTLTS” and “everytime”. The first two tracks […]

Alvvays Concert Review by Mike Stringham   I saw Alvvays at Warsaw in Brooklyn last night, but ironically enough I went to the wrong venue first, but then realized it was at good ol’ Warsaw; the home of fresh pierogies and live music. I was on the guest list thanks to Mercury East Presents, and […]

By Danny Rinaldi Successful post-punk indie outfit, Interpol, returns for their sixth studio release with Marauder. This album, while undoubtedly suffering from some degree of production issues, proves to be an exciting release for the group as it projects a certain energy and rawness that’s distinct compared to Interpol’s previous efforts.  It’s no mystery that between the […]
