He lifts them off his ears temporarily to readjust, giving me just enough time to register the beat of "Smooth Criminal" by M...   More

Band Name of the Week: Hippie Grenade

So, I made some mention in the last edition of Band Name of the Week--which congratulated Abracadaver on its magically morbid name--that the band in question sounds a lot like Cursive. Apparently, that kinda pissed Abracadaver off. In fact, it seems like much of ...   More

Band Name of the Week: Abracadaver

Well, well, well, Band Name of the Week went ahead and found itself a little Cursive ripoff band in Turner, Oregon, of all places. And it's got a noteworthy (if not horrible) band name: Abracadaver! I'm not sure if that cat's gonna pull a deceased human body out ...   More
