youre-nothing

Iceage | You're Nothing

Matador Records (2013)
There's something intriguing about the ways Copenhagen punk band Iceage seem simultaneously to care so much and so little.
By: LIZ PELLY  |  February 11, 2013

holyfire_foals

Foals | Holy Fire

Transgressive (2013)
Even at their most expansive, Foals are digging into more primal territory.
By: RYAN REED  |  February 11, 2013

pedestrian_verse-frightened_rabbit

Frightened Rabbit | Pedestrian Verse

Atlantic Records (2013)
Worrywarts who were stressed about Frightened Rabbit making the major-label jump after three well-received indie full-lengths and a pair of EPs can quit fretting.

Torn Shorts ripping and rolling Through the Mill

Ready for the big show
"I was never ready — for the big show," Torn Shorts frontman Josh Grabert howls.

hummingbird_review

Local Natives | Hummingbird

Frenchkiss Records (2013)
Local Natives' sophomore album bows out with closer "Bowery," a brooding indie-rock epic. But its true climax arrives a track earlier.

album_bloodyhammers

Bloody Hammers | Bloody Hammers

Soul Seller Records/Sacrificial (2013)
Presented as some kind of satanic pigfuck ritual, this North Carolina quartet's debut is far less doomy than advertised.
By: DANIEL BROCKMAN  |  January 29, 2013

album_outofview

The History of Apple Pie | Out of View

Marshall Teller Records (2013)
London-based quintet the History of Apple Pie's debut LP for Marshall Teller Records is an essential spin for fans of Dino Jr. riffs and early Slumberland indie-pop.

MUSIC_OTR_BleedingRainbOw_l

Bleeding Rainbow | Yeah Right

Kanine Records (2013)
The only defect of the sort-of-but-not-really debut from Bleeding Rainbow (no longer called Reading Rainbow, possibly due to litigious ire festering under LeVar Burton's genial television persona) is that the Philly foursome merely hop off the launching point forged by Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, and a handful of others from the oft-exalted grunge era.

MUSIC_OTR_Ducktails_list

Ducktails | The Flower Lane

Domino (2013)
Whereas previous Ducktails albums collaged pop ideas with kaleidoscopic filters and home-recorded hiss, The Flower Lane distills those disparate parts into a more firmly structured songcraft, sewn together with psychedelic guitars and dreamy imagery.
By: LIZ PELLY  |  January 23, 2013

MUSIC_OTR_RaRaRiot_list

Ra Ra Riot | Beta Love

Barsuk Records (2013)
On their woefully underrated first two albums, Ra Ra Riot worked their trademark art-pop sweet spot.
By: RYAN REED  |  January 23, 2013

Local_ravishavi_cover_list

Ravi Shavi kick out the jams

Party starter
A potent blend of scruffy garage rock and doo-wop dance floor jams, Ravi Shavi's new self-titled album is an absolute blast.
By: CHRIS CONTI  |  January 22, 2013

From Lolita to Vance

Plus, Boo City boogies down to Local 121
Last call for a heavy-duty metal feast on THURSDAY (the 24th) at Dusk with LOLITA BLACK headlining along with INSUFFERABLE INGRATE, TONGUE DYNASTY, and WORSE OFF ALIVE; dial 401.714.0444 for details.

Kristi Martel’s ‘avant-soul’

Divine introspection
Happy birthday to singer-songwriter-pianist Kristi Martel, who will be celebrating in fine fashion with a headlining set at the Roots downtown next weekend as part of the ongoing Luna's Ladies Night Series.

Yo La Tengo | Fade

Matador Records (2013)
Fade starts with James McNew and Ira Kaplan harmonizing on the line "sometimes the good things fade."
By: GARRETT MARTIN  |  January 17, 2013

MUSIC_ALBUMREVIEW_ToroYMoi_AnythinginReturn_list

Toro Y Moi | Anything In Return

Carpark Records (2013)
Chaz Bundick's done with chillwave, the lo-fi, underwater synth-pop fad that propelled his Toro y Moi project to hipster-blog stardom.
By: RYAN REED  |  February 14, 2013

A$AP Rocky | Long.Live.A$AP

A$AP Worldwide/Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records (2013)
