Girlpool - Ideal World

chris on March 12 2015

This song completes the 90s-sounding-girl triumvirate. I've actually been waiting to use the word triumvirate for seven years. It seems history favors the even numbers.

Speedy Ortiz - The Graduates

chris on March 12 2015

I've decided to go on a three song bender of 90s sounding girls. Consider this installment two. Left As Rain supports women's equality!... but more importantly music that sounds like 90s music.

Jenny Hval - That Battle is Over

chris on March 12 2015

At first I was like... No way Jose, get that Alanis Morissette bullshit outta my face. But then I was like, wait... Jagged Little Pill was kinda amazing. Then I was like, don't relate this artist to Alanis Morisette! She's her own strong independent woman, Chris! Get your closed minded misogynistic head out of your ass. I mean, it was International Women's Day the other day for Christ sake. You know what Jenny Hval... You go girl! Sacred Bones once again nails it.

Kitty Pryde - Florida (Jameston Thieves Remix)

chris on March 10 2015

This song seems to be very similar to the original track. That is until Jameston Thieves turns it up 23 notches in the 3rd period like mother fucking Wayne Gretzky. You have a firm grip on reality and then all of a sudden you're sprinting just to keep up.

Robby Hunter Band - Hard On Me

Alex on March 10 2015

Let's get it really poppy up in here. It's just one of those tracks that makes you want to dance, doesn't matter what kind of mood you're in or what you're doing you just cant but want to groove a little. Grandma's funeral? Still gonna groove you.

Flume & Chet Faker - Drop The Game

Alex on March 05 2015

This one goes out to all of you New Yorkers getting shat upon by snow, I'm sorry winter sucks. -Alex (currently writing this post on a patio in 80 degree Florida weather (just sayin' is all.( as a brogrammer is feels totally natural to have this nested 3 times (I could even go four, no big deal)))).

Cage the Elephant - Cigarette Daydreams

chris on March 02 2015

This song is amazing. This song makes you remember every time your heart was shattered. It makes you think of that high school love that got away. It makes you sing along immediately.

Museum of Love - Down South

chris on February 26 2015

SHOW ALERT! Tickets are on sale for Museum of Love(Pat Mahoney, formerly of LCD Soundsystem and friend of LeftAsRain) at Bowery Ballroom for tomorrow night. Friday, February 27th 2015. Be there, or binge watch Happy Valley... cause it's also super good.

Gateway Drugs - Dare Tonight

chris on February 25 2015

Wow, there must be some sort of musical psychic force swirling throughout the universe. For some reason I thought, what happened to that band Gateway Drugs? AND BOOM! I checked their soundcloud and here is a 2 day old brand new album, chock full of banging hits.

Gosh Pith - Waves

chris on February 25 2015

I bet these guys catch some serious shit for their name. For God's sake, it sounds like you have a speech impediment when you say it out loud. You know what guys, rise above. At least you don't have an animal combo name like the rest of the jokers out there. So up yours Panda Horse. As far as the music goes, it has a huge amount of promise. It's like The Weeknd, but whiter. And damn, there are some seriously good guitar riffs throughout their collection of tracks.
