Single Of The Week: Wild Moccasins – Gag Reflections/Summer Of Love (New West)

They are parts c86 a la Shop Assistants, tender jangle pop a la The Sundays, at times even a bit dreamy like Lush. I just want them to find their American side and fuck shit up bit and let loose.

Single Of The Week: The School – Never Thought I’d See the Day EP (Elefant)

Treat yourself to a single by what will be your next band crush and start saving up those pennies for the album.

Tunabunny in the UK, part one

Here’s the thing about all the exhaustion and struggle, the sacrifice that goes into saving up money to fly over to another country. The show has to be worth it. A bad show will leave you crushed and broken nearly to the point of despair. This can be a bit nerve-wracking, but it makes you put everything you have into what you’re doing.

Rear In Yr View 2011

Wild Flag’s debut album has taken women all the way to the top and proves they can write an album as uninspired, predictable, and shallow as any man.

This Red Pens single caught me off guard.

Single Of The Week: Bad Banana – Cry About It (Puzzle Pieces)

You can’t fake sincerity, no matter how hard you try.


Just Like Everyday Life – Examples of Men and Women Creating Beautiful Music Together

The B-52’s music is truly collaborative — brothers, sisters, gay, straight and best friends. How could they be anything else besides fantastic?

Single Of The Week: Midnite Snaxxx – A Guy Like That/Jackie (Total Punk)

These records come into your life then split and they’re gone. The best punk singles are like that.
