January 10th, 2020 · Comments Off on Barling & Collins’ “New World Odor” · By

The opening lyrics to Barling Collin’s sophomore album represent the true class of their lyrical prowess: “I don’t need no penis creme.” New World Odor pushes the immediate message that B.C. is something special.

New Spillway Single, “Autumn Leaves”

December 20th, 2019 · 1 Comment · By

Spillway’s debut single “Autumn Leaves” feeds listeners anxiety-provoking vocals and aggressive guitar riffs to create a relatable agonizing punk sound. The bipolar instrumental on this track edges on listeners time and time again to keep them intrigued with the hypnotic opening guitar arpeggio that pulls influence from the likes of John Frusciante and Jeff Buckley.

Angel Olsen at the Southern

February 18th, 2014 · 1 Comment · By

I had the opportunity to see Angel Olsen in November of 2012 at the Tea Bazaar. I had heard a lot of buzz about her so I figured I would stop by. Since then I have been hooked. Olsen’s first two albums consisted of stripped down guitar and vocals, which were beautiful and powerful. On […]

Amanda Laskey’s Best of 2013

January 7th, 2014 · 2 Comments · By

I don’t want to make this post about me, but some of you may know that I’m moving away from Charlottesville soon, and I’m going to have to get all sappy for a second. Working on this post about the new Sharkopath video has made me realize that there are two major things I’m going […]
