City Pages

Multi-layered punk rocker Ezra Furman talks suffering, faith, and Bob Dylan.

“His latest full-length, Perpetual Motion People, is a study in extremes between body-shaking punk rock and achingly emotional songs. With a voice reminiscent of Gordon Gano of Violent Femmes, the 29-year-old Furman — a devout Jew who identifies as gender-fluid and occasionally dons dresses and red lipstick — is a whirling dervish of sound as well as a deft and endearingly vulnerable lyricist.”


lohud Talks with Mac DeMarco before his show at Capitol Theatre

“Mac DeMarco, Indie rock’s hardest-working slacker, needed a new passport. So the Canadian was leaving his home in Queens and driving to Montreal when he spoke with The Journal News by phone…”


Noisey shares the new video for Destruction Units "Salvation"

““Salvation” is one of the most scuzzed-out, disconcerting and generally terrific tracks off of Destruction Unit’s latest album Negative Feedback Resistor, and the song’s newly-released music video drives those vibes home in a big way.”

The 405

The 405 shares Levitation 2016 lineup featuring Ty Segall

“Leading the bill is Brian-fucking-Wilson, who will be performing Beach Boys’ 1966 masterpiece Pet Sounds in full, which is worth the ticket price alone. Joining him will be Animal Collective, Ty Segall, Sleep, Flying Lotus, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Lee Scratch Perry. Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats and Black Mountains complete the first wave of acts…”

Tiny Mix Tapes

Tiny Mix Tapes Reviews U.S. Girls Half Free

“It isn’t often that an album surfaces whose winsomeness preemptively makes one despondent toward any dissent or apathy that (though it’s everyone’s due who dares) annoyingly always manages to muddle your fervor. Over and over, listen after listen and Half Free just plain sends. Mastermind Meg Remy’s first album for the vaunted 4AD label is bursting with vivid, cracked imagination and cool mastery of slippery pop allure.”


NME features U.S. Girls in best September releases.

“US Girls, ‘Half Free’: From Toronto, via Illinois, Meg Remy makes hazy, melancholic electro-pop that has drawn comparisons to both Ronnie Spector (her voice really is that emotive) and Dirty Beaches (the throbbing refrain of title track Sororal Feelings evokes the work of the scuzzy art-rocker). This is her first record since signing to 4AD, and has seen her achieve deserved recognition…”


NME features Destruction Unit in best September releases.

“Meat Wave, ‘Delusion Moon’: They’re from Chicago, they’re a three-piece, they make frantic, claustrophobic punk rock. But there’s much more to Meat Wave than that: their lyrics are smartly satirical, skewering targets such as online dating and right-wing American TV news coverage. Their lithe, bass-led sound leaves the emphasis on vocalist Chris Sutter’s abrasive, smart-Aleck delivery…”

LA Times

LA Times reviews Wand's "1000 Days"

“the Los Angeles band Wand’s new album mixes tripped-out psychedelia, glam and rock with washes of analog electronics to create a wonderful retro-futuristic mess.

Brooklyn Vegan

Brooklyn Vegan reviews U.S. Girls 'Half Free'

“You don’t even need to know the lyrics to get what’s going on, heartbreak runs electric through her powerhouse vocal performance. With equally sweeping production, built around a sample of Gloria Ann Taylor’s disco cut “Love is a Hurting Thing,” it comes off kind off like The Crystals being produced by Massive Attack…”


Exclaim! Reviews U.S. Girls New Album 'Half Free'

“Illinois-born, Toronto-based Megan Remy has proven her dedication to lo-fi pop weirdness throughout her prolific career in U.S. Girls, but she has finally circled aesthetic perfection with Half Free. Helmed by producer Onakabazien, the knob-twiddler behind her Free Advice Column EP from 2013, and flavoured by contributions from Slim Twig, Ben Cook (Fucked Up) and Amanda Crist (Ice Cream), this is her most complete and, arguably, accessible album yet.”

The State Press

The State Press Feature Ty Segall

“Segall’s last few years have been remarkably prolific. Since 2008, every year has seen a Segall solo album. He has also released handfuls of singles and EPs, collaborated with several other bands and is on tour relentlessly. The kicker to all of this is his age — he’s only 28…”


Pitchfork reviews U.S Girls 'Half Free'

“on Half Free, that bizarre exchange counts as comic relief. And even though this interlude—titled “Telephone Play No. 1”—appears just six minutes into the record, it’s still a necessary respite. By that point, we’ve already heard from the unhappily married wife of a man who had previously bedded her two sisters (“Sororal Feelings”), and a widow grieving her soldier husband’s death over a riotous reggae groove (“Damn That Valley”)...”


NRK interviews Mac DeMarco

“På sin nye plate gir indiehelten Mac Demarco ut adressen sin, og inviterer folk til å komme innom på en kopp kaffe. NRK inviterte han på kaffe før den utsolgte konserten i Oslo…”

V Magazine

V Magazine interviews CocoRosie

“Pinning down Bianca and Sierra Casady—better known as CocoRosie—is a feat near impossible, and that doesn’t include their decade-spanning genre-crossing discography and gender-fucking personas. No, instead they’re quite literally hard to track down.


Noisey Premieres King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's “Trapdoor”

“Melbourne-based King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard started in 2010 and has slowly but surely evolved from garage band and into psychedelia, krautrock, and experimentalism. With their latest effort Paper Mâché Dream Balloon, due on November 13 via ATO Records, the expands that blueprint further. Their latest track “Trapdoor” is a funky one, using a syncopated groove with punctuation from flute riffs, echo-heavy violin, and lots of of shaker. Stream the track for the first time below…

Raven Sings The Blues Blog

Raven Sings The Blues shares Wand's "Stolen Footsteps"

“Perhaps you’re asking if your vinyl shelf needs another Wand record this year. The answer is, of course, that it definitely does…”


NME interviews Destruction Unit

“‘Negative Feedback Resistor’ is, according to JS, a record rooted in ideas of “transcendence, evolution and moving forward as a person”. It’s a visceral trip through heavy, cannabinoid psych-rock buttressed by undercurrents of confrontational punk. Standout moments include ‘Chemical Reaction/Chemical Display’ – a diabolical scree of noise and reverb-drenched vocals – and the snarling, hardcdore assault that is ‘Judgement Day’.”

Pop Matters

Pop Matters interviews CocoRosie

“Heartache City, Bianca and Sierra Casady’s sixth album as CocoRosie, intentionally upends the sonic trajectory the band appeared to be following…”


Stereogum streams Wand's '1000 Days'

“Wand are a young band, but they’re already proving themselves to be prolific: 1000 Days is their third album in just over a year and, judging by the psych-rock miasma that spreads out over the 12 tracks on their new record, they aren’t running out of ideas just yet. We’ve already heard (and liked) a few tracks from this, including “Stolen Footsteps” and “Dungeon Dropper,” and now you can listen to the whole thing below…”

Brooklyn Vegan

Brooklyn Vegan covers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard at MHOW

“Prolific Australian psych rockers King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard released the raucous Quarters on Castle Face back in May and will release a second 2015 album, the gentler Paper Mâché Dream Balloon, on ATO this November, and they just wrapped up a tour supporting all of it. The tour concluded in NYC last night (9/16) at Music Hall of Williamsburg with the Burger-signed Michael Rault and the Captured Tracks-signed EZTV…”

The Beat

Beat Magazine Interviews U.S. Girls on Upcoming Album 'Half Free'

“Each track is fueled by Remy’s assertive vocals, set against avant grade soundscapes that pack a bunch with beats to rebel yell over and deep disco cuts to run riot to; combined they deliver an intense urgency to inspire change, take notice, begin to care, maybe even get out there and start a revolution.

This is an intellectual record for the open minded….”


NPR premieres CocoRosie's "Lost Girls" Video

““Lost Girls,” as Bianca told NPR, is a delineation of the perils faced by women every day. To illustrate the message, images of two female protagonists on the run accompany affecting poetry spoken by Bianca and sung by Sierra (who trained in opera)...”

The Line of Best Fit

The Line of Best Fit reviews CocoRosie's 'Heartache City'

“CocoRosie are band who are almost certainly self aware of their abstract nature. The sisters are savvy enough to know how to pull the levers of the internet marketing machine in the right ways, as was proved by their numerous tweets, soundcloud drops and video teases during the build-up to the release of their new album, Heartache City…”

Dangerous Minds

Dangerous Minds reviews Slim Twig's 'Thank You For Stickin’ With Twig'

“To my jaded ears, this guy is the real fucking deal. Again, I have just played this new album non-fuckin-stop since I got it. And now you can hear it , too, here’s Thank You For Stickin’ With Twig in its entirety, introduced by the artist…”

Drowned in Sound

Drowned in Sound reviews Destruction Unit's Negative Feedback Resistor

“‘For two years now…Destruction Unit have been…pushing the freek agenda and imminentizing the alien-eschaton…battling the greedy club owners, show promoters and control pigs to bring the new American heavy underground through your back door.’”
