Video: Marika Hackman – “hand solo” From Any Human Friend, out now on Sub Pop. Not the most subtle video ever made, but that’s okay. Sometimes you want your message to come across loud and clear: Diddlin’ is fun. Hackman said, “I wrote ‘hand solo’ as a bit of light-hearted relief, a wank anthem for … Continue reading New Marika Hackman video: Hand Solo

There are some people who, it seems, endure long after others would have collapsed in a dissolving heap, people who, even with the deck stacked against them hand after hand, stay at the table, albeit often moved to a table that is somewhere in the darkness, away from the brightness that they once helped generate. … Continue reading Atonal Apples, Amplified Heat: Ginger Baker, RIP

Big music festivals might not be the ideal way to experience music you’ve never heard before, but from a quantity perspective it’s hard to beat. I figure I saw 30 bands at Riot Fest this year, and of those, I had previously never listened to 13 of them. And that’s what makes a fest so … Continue reading Riot Fest 2019: Do You Realize??

OK. This is admittedly taken from when the news, such as it is, was breaking, but it strikes me as almost haiku-like in its brevity and appropriateness.

Morrissey’s U.S. tour started this week and ticket sales are less than fantastic. In fact they pretty much suck.
