Six Organs of Admittance Reach New Heights with “Taken by Ascent”

Ben Chasny’s Six Organs of Admittance released Burning the Threshold late last week. The new album, on SOA’s longtime label of Drag City, dropped February 24 and I’m just now checking out one of the release’s highlights: the stellar psych-folk track “Taken by Ascent”. Six Organs of Admittance reaches its pinnacle when marrying Chasny’s folk… Continue reading Six Organs of Admittance Reach New Heights with “Taken by Ascent”

Hayden Drops New Single, “Hey Love” – New LP out Soon!

My love of Hayden’s music goes way back. Back, in fact, twenty years to his sophomore release, Everything I Long For. I’ve always been a fan of his mopey Canadian folk rock. As a twenty-year career will do, his sound has evolved quite drastically. Still with a hint of sadness, modern Hayden tracks are more… Continue reading Hayden Drops New Single, “Hey Love” – New LP out Soon!

It’s a… Continue reading Darlings Tease New LP with “Centuries of Light”

Xiu Xiu’s “Stupid In The Dark” Asks You To Kill Your Ungrateful Lover.

Xiu Xiu is rarely an easy listen. Think back to 2004’s Fabulous Muscles and abrasive tracks like “Support Our Troops OH! (Black Angels OH!)” and “Fabulous Muscles (Mama Black Widow Version)”; both presented real-life content upstanding members of society would rather push under the rug and pretend doesn’t exist. Yet “I Luv the Valley OH!”… Continue reading Xiu Xiu’s “Stupid In The Dark” Asks You To Kill Your Ungrateful Lover.

‘With Light And With Love’ May Just Be WOODS’ Best Song Ever.

Having heard most of Woods’ previous material, and firmly believing Bend Beyond is their pinnacle to date, I was somewhat concerned what new material might bring. Would it live up to my worship of their 2012 LP? Would I be epically disappointed, requiring an injection-dose of Bend Beyond coupled with a slew of 70s psych-folk… Continue reading ‘With Light And With Love’ May Just Be WOODS’ Best Song Ever.
