Album Review

Hookworms // The Hum

The Hum, Hookworms’ latest album, continues their tradition of noisy, droning, and lively neo-psych, full of the feedback and strong bass lines we’ve come to expect from their past works. I truly love drone, but find a lot of drone rock is bland, overly repetitive, and dull. Hookworms is never dull. Minimalistic in spots, but… Read More

NEW TRACK: Parkay Quarts – “Uncast Shadow of a Southern Myth”

It’s not often that I’m compelled to use the word “beautiful” when describing the music released by the post-punk hooligans in Parquet Courts.  Typically, the band embodies energy in raw form, chugging through proto-punk chords at a relentless pace and rarely letting up.  But even punks like to sit down every once and a while,… Read More
