    Somniosus releases long-awaited collection

Rather than a cohesive album, each installment of the 5 track EP features its own artwork, theme, and mood. The self-titled collection, which hit Bandcamp earlier this week, is the product of two year’s worth of effort from the Minnesota-based group. From […] More

    Steve ‘n’ Seagulls capitalizes on strange success

    The members of Steve ‘n’ Seagulls have taken a slice of viral stardom and turned it into a full-blown, barn-dance style, foot-stompin’, retro hootenanny. The band entered to the blaring sound of the Bonanza theme song. Wearing the same overalls and crazy hillbilly hats featured in their multiple viral videos on Youtube, the Finnish rockers burst forth with fun, […] More

    Phoebe Bridgers’ Farewell Tour Quietly Slaughters

    Phoebe Bridgers reaches into herself and finds that melancholy, she beats it into submission with wit and sarcasm and humor and talent, then she opens her mouth and lets it all escape.

    They Might Be Giants “Hate Children”?!
