“Oh hey, it’s brothers in electronic arms Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross teaming up again to soundtrack Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s The Vietnam War. While the musical details are scarce, the amount of music isn’t – this OST features 90 minutes of new material from the pair, an undertaking […]
More polished than Day for Night, but by no means overproduced. Trouble at the Henhouse dances back and forth between quiet but still interesting tracks like “Flamenco” and loud bangers like “Gift Shop”, delivering an album that can be listened cover-to-cover unlike many other alternative rock bands of this era.
The Tragically Hip, one of Canada’s musical merrymakers, are also praised for their raw, sweaty live performances. Frontman Gordon Downie is a real dynamo, lyrically and physically, and his bandmates only support the beautiful live chaos. With that aside, the Hip treated fans with their first ever live album, Live […]
On the Tragically Hip’s fifth album, Day for Night, the band continues to churn with the same rock & roll fervor found on 1993’s enigmatic Fully Completely. Gordon Downie’s signature lyrical mysteries are just as lush, but much more dark-spirited. And that’s the intent, for he’s looking for a listener […]
Reissued for the first time since 1997 on Universal Music! In 1997, Canadian rockers The Tea Party released their fourth studio LP Transmission, which went on to reach double platinum status in the country, hit No. 3 on the Canadian charts and earn the band a Juno nomination.
A 15-track collection of tracks from one of the bands that helped create and thrive within the lounge/tango music genre. If you own any good chill out compilations, Gotan Project will no doubt be included and stand out above most other groups. Ya Basta!
Considered by many to be their “magnum opus”, Live Through This, Hole’s second studio album following Pretty On the Inside, was met with much critical acclaim. Critics praised Love’s crooning as she sings of life’s pressures, and her own personal challenges. Many of her lyrics cover deeply rooted emotions, spanning […]
“Live in Leeds” was shot during the legendary British rocker’s final concert of their 1982 European Tour, which was held on July 25, 1982 in Leeds, England at Roundhay Park in support of their classic 1981 studio album Tattoo You. It would be the last live tour for seven years […]
For an artist who inspired as intense devotion, and was as prolific, as Elliott Smith, it comes as some surprise that the Portland singer-songwriter’s archive – chock-full of unreleased songs, fascinating demos and illuminating alternate takes – hasn’t been excavated more thoroughly over the years. Arriving nearly a decade after […]
““Lonesome Crow” is basically a trippy, psychedelic, rock album from Germany’s biggest export. The soothing vocals of Klaus Meine are still noticeable, but heavy riffing and flying solos are not going to be found here. A lot of mellowing howls by Meine are used either for atmosphere or to go […]
