“A Long Time Ago” by Captain Dane-O

Written by on 2 April 2020

In his single “A Long Time Ago,” enigmatic singer/songwriter Captain Dane-O fuses together elements of post-punk’s surrealism and conservative but biting guitar melodies with an Echo & the Bunnymen-style psychedelia, also of the minimalist persuasion, and although the resulting cocktail is anything but ‘mainstream’ in stylization, it undeniably makes for one of the more spellbinding […]

Badgertrap releases Man Shed Head Crisis 

Written by on 26 March 2020

Whether he’s filling our speakers with a chilly white noise that somehow finds some warmth in the melody it churns out in “Scrotum,” hammering away at a patient beat in the progressive “Despite Everything,” redefining surreal pop using punk rock aesthetics in Slug,” slashing a simplistic harmony to shreds (poetically, mind you) in “How Long” […]

We Are Vibrational Beings’ new album Return to Love

Written by on 26 March 2020

Stomping to life in a warm, string-powered march out of the silence, “Footsteps in the Attic of My Mind” comes into focus almost instantly after pressing play, but it isn’t until we’re a minute or two into the composition’s unfurling harmony of colorful strings and vocals that we’re able to appreciate all of its intricacies […]

The Wildcat O’Halloran Band release Album 

Written by on 19 March 2020

Crunchy and volatile in “If Ifs Were 5ths,” melodic but gutturally textured in “I Wonder Who” and straight-up explosive in “Got Love If You Want It,” one of the most important elements for us to behold in The Wildcat O’Halloran Band’s Deck of Cards is its searing guitar parts, the best of which are scattered across each […]
