CRYSTAL CASTLES Featured

Crystal Castles are one of the more recent––and more popular––bands to dispel the notion that abrasiveness and escapism are mutually exclusive. More underground outfits discovered this long ago and never looked back. Just this year, albums from Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Ital, Swans, and Andy Stott have demonstrated that exploring dark places need not be a cold, lifeless exercise. Crystal Castles’ initial releases seemed to share this assumption. Their first full length was a concentrated explosion of biting synths and shrill vocal distortions, which suggested that their creators operated with a combination of apathy and masochism. Yet, albums (I)and(II)also had…

TWENTY ONE PILOTS Featured

Columbus, Ohio-formed band, Twenty One Pilots, is soaring to new heights on the broad-backed wings of their rule-breaking talent, but also thanks to their down-to-earth, grassroots approach to music. Tyler Joseph and Josh Dunn didn’t traverse the musical horizon based on antiquated ideals or old-school ways of operating. The pair adopted a progressive approach to songwriting and a precise plan of attack at playing shows. Quickly, Twenty One Pilots went from a small band named after the plot-line of an Arthur Miller play and demoing songs in a basement to one that elicits pride throughout the state of Ohio.READ MORE

LOVE AND THE OUTCOME Featured

THE WOMBATS Featured

I remember discovering The Wombats. It was the fall of 2007 and I was surfing a British music blog when I came across a funny song title and clicked. Although I'm used to hearing probably 1000 new bands per year and falling in love with only a couple dozen, it took just one chorus for me to be hooked—"Let's dance to Joy Division/And celebrate the irony!" There was a gleeful, cheeky, winking intelligence on top of pure adrenaline that exploded through the speakers.    READ MORE

EVOLUTION OF E.D.M. Featured

The crowd began to sway and then back away rapidly — I thought it was just a silly arguement but, suddenly a body came darting towards mine. What could I do? Just walk away like every one else? No, I snapped into a heroic mode, caught the incoming body and immediately ran for help after looking at the boy’s condition. He was purple in the face, seizing, and breathing with great difficulty. To this day, I’m still unsure if he survived, but from that point on, I knew something had to give.    READ MORE
