The AP Euro Review: a journey in procrastination

February 25, 2014

It’s 11:09 p.m. (nine minutes after my self-imposed bedtime) and I’m far from snuggling under my flannel bed sheets. By the looks of it, I will be violating my own rule for the fifth night in a row, and, judging by my track record, this won’t be the last time. I’m on Tumblr, of course. Or, at least, I was. Then I clicked on link for a YouTube... Continue Reading

This bright instrumental from the critically acclaimed indie/surf rock band serves as a nice introduction for those who may have not heard the band. Although not all of their songs are instrumentals, they all have the same high... Read more »

Forever In Armitron — BOAT

This band produces music from an age-old genre: Trying-to-imitate-The-Cure-rock. There’s nothing wrong with that, but is it too much to ask for originality once in awhile?

The Generationals here touch on various aspects of different genres without straying too far from their indie roots, or sounding too novel. Clever lyrics top off this tight track.

Sometimes we all need some ear candy to take the edge off. You won’t find that here. Nope, there’s not a lot to be had from this track, perhaps a catchy guitar riff or two. Hey enjoy it, even though no one else will.

With vintage vocoder lines, impressive turntablism, and 90’s throwback hip-hop beats, the DJ Premier remix of SebastiAn’s latest calls to mind greats like Steinski and DJ Shadow. Worthy of multiple listens.

The definition of drumstep. Thematic string hits cascade into a completely over the top drop, all making for a satisfying, danceable tune.

Anything New — Bibio

Sliced up synth jabs, intricate hi-hat work, and cheesy 80's vocals make for an all around rewarding listen. A bubblegum-pop gem to kick off springtime.
