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

Photojournalist — Small Black (Star Slinger Remix)

Logan McMillen

February 26, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

A repetitive, hi-hat heavy, two step beat fleshes out this minimalist pop tune. Reverbed out vocals and syncopating “car door ajar” samples gives it an organic quality while the compressed bass motif in the background adds... Read more »

The World (Is Going Up in Flames) — Charles Bradley

This track takes the listener into an age long past, when soul flowed down the streets of America like a flood. The days of Al Greene, and other legends. Tightly arranged instrumentation tops off Bradley’s ample vocals.

Coat of Arms — Nosaj Thing

Minimalism speaks volumes. I know that’s a cliche, but it’s one you can’t avoid when describing Nosaj Thing’s music. The dark, ethreal sonic landscapes he shapes and molds over the course of “Coat of Arms” makes for... Read more »

RW — The Psychic Paramount

This bizarre, but funky instrumental by this New York trio may seem repetitive, but this may seem repetitive. See what I did there. Listen to it anyway, it’ll build character.

New Ceremony — Dry The River

I think what this song is missing is some lush, undulating, choral harmonies. If the Killers played southern-tinged indie rock, this is the band they would sound like. They’re making a huge buzz on the blogosphere, so you might... Read more »

Last Night at the Jetty — Panda Bear

Noah Lennox here shows a slower and less dynamic side than previous albums, focusing more on creating and maintaining a mood throughout the track.

Colours — Group Love (Captain Cuts Remix)

Logan McMillen

February 20, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

Captain Cuts takes an abnormally poppy, repetitive, smile-inducing indie rock tune with dark lyrical imagery and spins it into a dramatic dance floor anthem complete with a dub-step breakdown at about two and a half minutes in.

LA LA Swim — Slow Loris

The guitar hook sounds like a Los Angeles band channeling Surfer Blood. Actually it’s a Wisconsin band channeling Surfer Blood. Oh well. This beautiful piece of pop music just dropped from their debut album and is the perfect... Read more »

The build-up to the chorus in this song is rather long, but the wait is more than worth it. This one will have you singing along, a trait not often found in this sort of music.
