Anti-Song of the Day – 1: X-tReMe PoWeR

I’m sure it’s not deliberate, but the band’s name doesn’t half sound like White Power.

U.S. Girls – Gem (FatCat)

Is it Gem’s frozen nature that makes me feel encased in glass? Or is it my own detachment that keeps me from finding a way in?

Is there anyone out there brave enough to stand up and admit something’s wrong – and do something about it?

Kimbra – Vows (Warner Brothers)

Vows is a signal post for pop music. It’s like Kate Bush if she knew how to write a good song. It’s like Cat Power if she had someone who loved her. It’s like Adele if she knew how to dance. It’s like the Rolling Stones if they were still alive. Where can anyone go from here except sideways?

Song of the Day #768 – Dead Man’s Bones

  Future music fans will look back on this era and wonder what our fucking problem was. By then all the derivative filler & trustfund-funded garbage clogging up our ears will have disappeared and only the great stuff will be left. There’s so much of it, an embarrassment of riches compared to, say, 1995, or […]

In Words: Mogwai + Mick Turner @ The Tivoli, 04.03.15

“This song’s called ‘Sister’, it’s for Gillian Triggs, for standing up to the bully boys.” Mick Turner throws up a long arm with devil horns at the end and smiles slightly. “Fuck Brandis”, yells an audience member and Turner turns thoughtful. “Yeah, Bookshelves Brandis,” he muses. “What a turd.” He brushes his guitar strings into […]
