THE CORIN TUCKER BAND


The new record began with the same surprise turn that started Corin Tucker's career back in 1991, ended Sleater-Kinney's 11-year year run in 2006 and inspired the punk-feminist rocker to redefine herself as a stay-at-home mom.


It was early 2009, and Tucker was performing at ... + MORE

  

 

ERIC D. JOHNSON


In this often reflexive and world-weary era of popular music, there seems little room for unabashed wonder, or joy without suspicion. Some regrettable fear planted within each of us around the 7th grade or thereabouts still makes it hard to dance, hard to hold hands, hard to say "I love you," ... + MORE

  

 

ANDY CABIC


Vetiver's Andy Cabic grew up in northern Virginia and spent a few years in Greensboro, North Carolina, playing guitar, writing music and recording as a member of The Raymond Brake, which is where he first met future Vetiver members Trippe and Dunn.

You can almost hear the dust sifting ... + MORE

  

 

OLD LIGHT


Despite what the laundry detergent ads have been telling us, the future's going to be dirty. No matter how much time we spend in front of the little clean, white geometric figures of the wuh wuh wuh, that white glow won't rub off. All still rises from and resolves into dirt. Or at least petroleum. ... + MORE

  

 

TRUCKSTOP DARLIN'


Truckstop Darlin' comes out of the amazing music scene of the Great Northwest, more specifically, Portland, OR. Their self-titled debut album has been hailed as "raw and powerful" and their live shows are a sweaty, fist-pumping riot soaked in cheap beer and whiskey. These boys play honest, ... + MORE

  

 

ZOO ANIMAL

A paradox is not an impossibility. 'Zoo Animal,' the band's self-titled second record, reveals itself to uphold such a maxim with a sharp yet subdued sound that is informed by equal measures of classical minimalism and '90s grunge. This contrast is just one of many as Zoo Animal's stark, ... + MORE
