Posted by on January 29, 2013 with No Commentsas

Adam Green & Binki Shapiro are technically a supergroup – he’s one half of Mouldy Peaches, she’s one third of Little Joy – and they’ve recorded a record of cutesy psychedellia that reaches out to anyone at romantic rock bottom.

Posted by on January 28, 2013 with No Commentsas

The Slaughterhouse Chorus is a blend of twangy, down-home hillbilly rock infused with a heavy dose of punk and a tinge of folk. (Not exactly what you’d expect from a band hailing from New York City.)

The blues means many things to many people. To some, the purists, it is the scratchy honesty of Robert Johnson with his devil-fueled fretwork. To others, it is the rock n roll that he influenced, be it Cream, The Stones, or early Fleetwood Mac. When Five Horse Johnson formed back in 1995, referring to itself […]

Whiskey Shivers sounds as if it just emerged from deep in the woods – barefoot, loud, and with little sense of propriety.
