"Rock journalism is people who can't write
interviewing people who can't talk
for people who can't read."
(Frank Zappa)

Have you heard? Cheatahs

Have you heard? Cheatahs

Cheatahs (not to be confused with defunct Aussie band Cheetah or — god forbid — The Cheetah Girls) are a little bit Ride, a little bit Sugar with a whole lotta hooky riffs. Careful though, this seductive UK 4-piece who cite Pixies, Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth as inspiration, might just convince you to ‘cheat’ with them...
Have you heard? Slowcoaches

Have you heard? Slowcoaches

Only officially formed just over a year ago, England’s Slowcoaches (comprising one Heather, one Matt and one Sam), actually move at a pretty steady clip. Releasing a debut EP this past March — the sold-out-in-one-week We’re So Heavy on Tye Die Tapes — they’ve already unveiled the adorably titled, new single, Tummy Bug (written as the...
Have you heard? Cold Pumas

Have you heard? Cold Pumas

Indie noise-rockers Cold Puma hail from the UK and have undeniably mastered the art of motorik repetition. They’re set to debut their first LP, Persistent Malaise on November 5th via Faux Discx / Gringo Records / Italian Beach Babes and will hit the road in their native land later this month to spread their gospel....
Have you heard? Empty Flowers

Have you heard? Empty Flowers

A friend recently posted Stereolab’s Golden Ball on his Facebook wall with the comment, “Here’s to the slow build,” and that’s exactly our sentiment when we hear Empty Flowers’ Call a Priest  — except, well, its build is so slow it technically isn’t a build at all, but more of a smouldering, slow burn. In...
Have you heard? Earlimart

Have you heard? Earlimart

Hailing from LA (but named for another Californian town altogether), Earlimart’s core duo of Aaron Espinoza (vocals,guitar) and Ariana Murray (bass, keyboards, vocals) joined forces back in 2009 and have studiously released seven LPs to date. Along the way, they’ve earned comparisons to awesome-sauce indie rockers Elliot Smith and Sparklehorse, toured with acts like Band of Horses, and...
Have you heard? Milagres

Have you heard? Milagres

Based in Brooklyn, critically acclaimed thanks to solid sophomore LP Glowing Moon, and prepping to open for former Smashing Pumpkin, James Iha, five-piece Milagres — comprising Kyle Wilson, Chris Brazee, Fraser McCulloch, Eric Schwortz and Paul Payabyab — craft remarkably polished songs without sounding ‘slick’, and fill your head with “heart-melting melody.” ___ Milagres Tour...
Have you heard? Teen Daze

Have you heard? Teen Daze

Closely following the “futuristic, electronic utopia” debut All Of Us, Together released earlier this year, Vancouver’s Teen Daze rapidly readies The Inner Mansions for a street date of November 6th. Delving inwardly both thematically and sonically, his forthcoming sophomore LP — coming via Lefse Records — promises a bevvy of captivating, introspective songs. To get a taste...
Have you heard? The Night Beats

Have you heard? The Night Beats

Dirty, gritty psyched-out garage rock. If you like that, you’ll love Seattle’s The Night Beats. Caterwauling guitars, jangle, clatter and tinny-fuzz, members Lee Blackwell, James Traeger and Ttarek Wegne lay out some seriously alluring sonic sprawl. Dig Ain’t Dumbo and Dial 666 below, baby, taken from their self-titled LP out now via Trouble In Mind...
Have you heard? La Sera

Have you heard? La Sera

A little late to the La Sera party, but we’re so glad to finally be here! Brooklyn’s Katy Goodman — once 1/3 of all-female punk trio Vivian Girls — is La Sera, a melody-loving, in-touch-with-her-feelings, dream-pop chanteuse who’s left punk rock behind to release a 2nd LP of sweet, perfect-to-pine-to breakup songs with Sees The...
