R.I.P. CORY MONTEITH

Glee star Cory Monteith has passed away. (Vancouver police confirmed the news at a press conference late Saturday night.)  To say that I’m in shock is an understatement.  I think I was still in denial about the fact that he’d gone to rehab earlier this year.  Maybe it’s because he always looked so happy...

#albumoftheday DEER HOWLING: YEARHAND

Deer Howling is the “little secretive” side-project of Valquire Veljkovic of the obscure electro-pop band ANIAETLEPROGRAMMEUR. (You may have heard their remixes of songs by Velvet Condom and Noblesse Oblige. If not, check them out on their site: http://www.aniaetleprogrammeur.com/) Val tells us: “The roots of this project are in mid 90s acid techno...

#albumoftheday EDITORS: THE WEIGHT OF YOUR LOVE

“It breaks my heart to love you, it breaks my heart to love you,” croons Editors vocalist Tom Smith matter-of-factly during “Sugar,” the second track on the band’s splendid new album The Weight Of Your Love. Previously, the band have often reminded me of The Killers and Franz Ferdinand, but not so much...

#albumoftheday SKYLAR GREY: DON’T LOOK DOWN

Skylar Grey is the alias of American singer/songwriter Holly Brook Hafermann. Her first full-length album, 2006’s Like Blood Like Honey, was released under the name Holly Brook, but during recent years she underwent a transformation and decided to start going by Skylar Grey. According to Wiki, she chose her new name because “it...

#ALBUMOFTHEDAY NEHEDAR: THIS HEART

Nehedar is what NYC-based singer/songwriter Emilia Cataldo goes by, much the way Natasha Khan calls herself Bat For Lashes or Sarah Assbring calls herself El Perro Del Mar. Let’s face it — it’s trendy for female solo artists to give themselves a cool name these days. But Emilia didn’t just start calling herself...

#albumoftheday MEGADETH: SUPER COLLIDER

Every time a new Megadeth album comes out, I listen to it and find myself thinking, damn, this is the best Megadeth in years.  Perhaps, then, they’ve been getting progressively better.  It’s also possible — if not probable — that I’ve forgotten how good the previous album was by the time a new...

#albumoftheday BLACK SABBATH: 13

Initially, I was disappointed that this new Black Sabbath album, the first in something like 20 years to feature Geezer Butler (bass), Tony Iommi (guitar) and Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), didn’t have any catchy songs like “Iron Man” and “Paranoid.”  I felt like, didn’t they want to hook people?  I’ve been frustrated with Iron...

#albumoftheday SKID ROW: UNITED WORLD REBELLION: CHAPTER ONE

United World Rebellion: Chapter One is Skid Row’s third release to feature vocalist Johnny Solinger, who’s been their singer for a decade now, which is probably close to how long original vocalist Sebastian Bach was in the band. Their first release with Solinger was called Thickskin and it found the band trying on...

#albumoftheday ALICE IN CHAINS: THE DEVIL PUT DINOSAURS HERE

If I understand correctly, this is the chorus of “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here,” the title track of Alice In Chain’s new album: “The devil put dinosaurs here / Jesus don’t like a queer / The devil put dinosaurs here / No problem with faith just fear.” Now analyze that. Seriously. Because I...

#albumoftheday EMPIRE OF THE SUN: ICE ON THE DUNE

Daft Punk will undoubtedly be this year’s most successful electronic music duo (even if much of their latest album was produced with live instruments), but Australia’s Empire Of The Sun won’t be kept down under on the charts for much longer if there’s any justice in this world of pop. Just listen to...
