Albums for The Apocalypse #6: Minutemen’s “Double Nickels on the Dime”

Long ago, now some 40 years ago, several bands emerged from the budding punk rock scene that would change the landscape of music forever. Among the greats, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, The Misfits, one band stood out above the rest. A band that chose to go against the usual three chord riff and repetitive choruses […]

Albums For The Apocalypse #5: Beach House’s “Bloom”

I was going to start off by saying that Bloom is to dream pop what Loveless is to shoegaze; but the more I thought about it, the more I realized they’re more or less the same genre. Then again, Bloom isn’t what I would consider to be an entirely dream pop affair. With song structures […]

It’s certain that at this point of areas around the world legally mandating stay-at-home orders, that people are starting to feel a bit lonely being unable to go out. Surely we can venture to grocery stores and get the essentials, but socializing isn’t the easiest to do in a long line of mask-bearing lunatics willing […]

As many- ideally all- of you are practicing social distancing and self-imposedly bound to your own homes, it’s likely that you’re beginning to get bored. Bored of watching the same TV shows, eating the same meals, having the same conversations with the other residents of your home and most annoyingly bored of listening to the […]
