Linkin Park – Living Things

Linkin Park - Living Things

Release Date: June 26th, 2012 Reviewed By Nathan Holt With five albums now under their belt, Linkin Park has come quite a ways since their first album Hybrid Theory that came out in 2000. From their early rock roots, their latest creation Living Things is a new entity in itself. Right off the bat from […]


Peaking Lights – Lucifer

Peaking Lights - Lucifer

Released Date: June 18th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots There’s something soothing about Peaking Lights new album Lucifer, even though the title might suggest otherwise. This smooth ship of an album sails along; pulsed by a swampy bass and ultra chill beats courtesy of co-founder Aaron Coyes. If Coyes is wind to the sail then […]

Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do

Release Date: June 19th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots Fiona Apple is ferocious… not just in her return to record making as one might have expected me to end that sentence, but simply in being. Take the second song on her newest release The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw & […]


Electric Guest – Mondo

Electric Guest - Mondo

Release Date: April 24th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots I feel like the first thing everyone talks about when discussing Electric Guest’s debut record Mondo is the fact that Brian (Danger Mouse) Burton produced it. And though there’s no doubting it’s a DM record, I think we should pick a few other things apart first […]


Metric – Synthetica

Metric - Synthetica

Release Date: June 12th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots Metric has definitely taken an antiemetic turn on their last few records, which is something they do quite well. Still, I can’t help but long for the Metric of old. When they were young, poor, Brooklynites, before it was cool to be a young, poor, Brooklynite. […]


Atlas Genius – Through The Glass EP

Atlas Genius - Through The Glass EP

Release Date: June 8th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots With their debut EP Through The Glass Australian band Atlas Genius joins the likes of Neon Tree’s and Young The Giant as bands I feel are very talented yet utterly un-impactful. Their music’s good, real good, it just doesn’t come close to moving me, a trend […]


Liars – WIXIW

June 13th, 2012  |  by  |  published in CD Reviews

Liars - WIXIW

Release Date: June 5th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots The beat on Liars new record WIXIW seems to be continual from beginning to end, making it feel as though there’s a rhythmic hum linking each of the songs. The constant rattle starts with the records opening track “The Exact Color Of Doubt” which is backed […]


The Antlers – Undersea EP

The Antlers - Undersea EP

Release Date: July 24th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots There’s no doubt you’re left with a sinking feeling while listening to The Antlers newest EP Undersea. It feels as though you’re floating down into the gallows, about to be swallowed whole by the sea. And you’re all right with that, all right because an airy […]


The Antlers – Burst Apart

The Antlers - Burst Apart

Release Date: May 10th, 2011 Reviewed By Court Smoots Wide-open and sprawling, The Antlers are no longer defined by the bedroom music once associated with their stellar LP Hospice. Pete Silberman has broken free from those four walls and brought some friends along for the ride, a spacey range before them, Silberman’s angelic falsetto as […]


Monks of Mellonwah – Neurogenesis EP

Monks of Mellonwah - Neurogenesis EP

Release Date: May 24th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots There’s something about Monks of Mellonwah that feels familiar to me, something that reminds me of the 90’s… though not in a good way. There’s a very heard feel to their sound, and that’s never a good place to start when you’re a supposed buzz-band (cringe […]
