Courtney Barnett – Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit Courtney Barnett has a way with words. Freewheeling and deadpan with a heavy Melbourne drawl, Barnett delivers some of the year’s best hooks to a backdrop of poppy, gently psyched-out rock.

It has been nearly fifteen years since The Decemberists’ first release, and in order to survive this long as a quirky indie project, change was unavoidable. Whether […]

Released 3/17/15 This is a rough outing for the once great – or at least inimitable – Modest Mouse. Strangers to Ourselves is the band’s first proper LP in eight years. Combine a long hiatus with major lineup changes (including losing the legendary Johnny Marr) and one cannot help but listen with cautious optimism. Unfortunately, […]

Editor’s Note: Our most useless staff writer by far is the delightful and clever Zachary Adler, who has literally never submitted a single article. The reason we put up with him is that he is so very delightful and clever that when (if?) he ever does write a proper article, we’re very much looking forward […]
