Korea in the Space

I listened to this late last night and wasn’t sure if I’d like it again in the morning. I thought it was one of those times where everything I put on I enjoy (happens, like, every night…bad news for blogging), but, in this case, I’m still in like. Thankfully.

“Hi” is not quite […]

Reissues and boxed sets. If you’ve been paying any attention to industry news, the world is being completely inundated with them as of late. With the recent 20th birthdays of two of my all-time favorite records by *Primal Scream and Ride it is hard to avoid them. There is one stand out this […]

Annie Williams

Annie Williams is a dark and sultry songstress who picked up and moved from St. Louis to the wild west of Wyoming and New Mexico (while taking a short break in Nashville — what a mover!).

Oakdale, CA’s Built Like Alaska is ready to unleash their newest album, In Troubled Times, November 8 on the Future Farmer label. The first taste of that record is the track “Antique Love.”

[Hype Hype Hooray] The Knotty Pine: A Wild Mountain Venue From Another Dimension

I stepped into the Knotty Pine on […]
