Kobi CD review [Silber]

Music ReviewsKobi CD review [Silber] By Jan 8, 2005, 04:52 KOBI Projecto CD I own a pit bull named Tang King Po de Bosco. Aside from the viciousness her breed is famous for, she also possesses certain other destructive tendencies; clawed doors, chewed shoes, destroyed vacuum cleaners and pissed-on rugs are a few of her […]

Southkill CD review [Noreaster Failed Industries]

Music ReviewsSouthkill CD review [Noreaster Failed Industries] By Jun 6, 2005, 05:26 SOUTHKILL CD The deity behind the desk at Your Flesh designed to play a cruel hoax on me this time out: Pete sent me all these discs I like. Where am I to exercise my rapier sarcastic wit? How am I to hone […]

Radiohead CD review [Capitol]

Music ReviewsRadiohead CD review [Capitol] By Jun 10, 2003, 05:22 RADIOHEAD Hail To The Thief CD I continually wonder what became of Radiohead, the band which wrote “Creep” and “The Bends”—two of the most awe-inspiring poprock toons of the last decade. They seem to have been replaced by Radiohead, the Thom Yorke vehicle for expository […]

Killing Joke CD review [Zuma]

Music ReviewsKilling Joke CD review [Zuma] By Aug 5, 2003, 04:38 KILLING JOKE CD They delivered one of the single best live shows I've seen in years a month or so ago at the Majestic Theater in Detroit, just after laying this killer CD on an unsuspecting world, and I've been in semi-heaven ever since. […]

Loren Connors CD review [Family Vineyard]

Music ReviewsLoren Connors CD review [Family Vineyard] By Aug 22, 2003, 04:42 LOREN CONNORS The Departing of a Dream, Vol. II  CD I was all set to hate this on the basis of what looked like an arty black-and-white Margaret Bourke-White-ish cover photo that usually denotes music made by hackey-sack playing, pot-smoking hippies from Olympia, […]

Thrall CD review [Alternative Tentacles]

Music ReviewsThrall CD review [Alternative Tentacles] By Oct 14, 2003, 02:11 THRALL Lifer CD OK, so I'm partial. I've known Mike Hard for about 15 years now, many of which were spent in the same band; we have variously written some kick ass music together and come close to flinging each other through windows (typical […]

Trio S CD review [Zitherine]

Music ReviewsTrio S CD review [Zitherine] By Dec 20, 2003, 02:16 TRIO S CD The liner notes proffer some blurblety about the music stemming from organic sounds that rivers make and traditional New Zealand seal hunting songs. Rather wish I hadn't read that, because it definitely fucks with my ability to dig what's going on […]

Megan Reilly CD review [Carrot Top]

Music ReviewsMegan Reilly CD review [Carrot Top] By Jun 3, 2003, 05:10 MEGAN REILLY Arc of Tessa CD Would've liked this just fine on its own—the airy, plaintive, liquid-smooth vocals relating tales of love, life, loss, loneliness, and other L-related things; the sometimes-country/sometimes-folk/always interesting melody lines; the overall deeply personal, genuine feel to the proceedings. […]

Manitoba CD review [Leaf]

Music ReviewsManitoba CD review [Leaf] By Apr 8, 2003, 05:05 MANITOBA Up In Flames CD They sound Canadian. Are they? Canadian—not in a shitty way, like, Les Sans Culottes, but in the way that cool stuff on late-nite CBC radio sounds. Think they're from the UK, though. Imagine a DJ-driven Spiritualized with a nice computer […]
