Album Review: Agalloch


Marrow Of The Spirit (Profound Lore)

[ART METAL] It’s easy for someone who grew up on a steady diet of indie rock, folk and pop music to snicker at black metal. Usually the scorn from the uninitiated isn’t because of the music’s dark undertones, pummeling riffage, or high-pitched, squalling guitar tones—it’s because they’re scared to like t...   More

Win Tickets to Tomorrow Night's Low Holiday Show


Slowcore outfit Low is probably the last band you'd ever expect to record a Christmas song.

Almost Live: Clippers at Blazers


What's wrong with the Blazers? It's the question that everyone has been pondering the past few weeks, but nobody has been able to come up with any discernable answers.

Blouse, "Shadow" and "Into Black" (Old Wave Records)


These days, there are few secrets on the Internet. Our insatiable need for information and transparency is erasing the boundaries of personal space and the private; when the government's secrets end up on WikiLeaks and Taylor Swift's new album is just a click away for anyone with knowledge of Ra...   More
