Minus Story - Heaven and Hell album cover

Minus Story

Heaven and Hell, 2005

8.3 / 10

Following up what was my #1 record of the year last year, Minus Story recently released an EP titled Heaven and Hell on Jagjaguwar. Six tracks and five songs, this ...

Okkervil River - The Stage Names album cover

Okkervil River

The Stage Names, 2007

8.9 / 10

It’s a rare commodity to find a record that just seems to get it right. I mean really get it. The kind of disc that echoes your little world, your ...

Okkervil River - The Stand Ins album cover

Okkervil River

The Stand Ins, 2008

8.6 / 10
Multiple Authors

“But there's this idea that nobody can tell you if something is good or not, you have to decide whether you think it's good. And nobody is more of an ...

Okkervil River - The Stand Ins album cover

Okkervil River

The Stand Ins, 2008

9.0 / 10
Multiple Authors

I have this vaguely unpleasant sensation lately when listening to The Stand Ins that Okkervil River’s Will Sheff (guitar and vocals) is peering in the windows at me. I’m probably ...

Swan Lake - Enemy Mine album cover

Swan Lake

Enemy Mine, 2009

4.0 / 10

n theory, this band should be really, really fucking good - a supergroup composed of three accomplished artists already involved with various supergroups of their own. Dan Bejar (Destroyer, New ...

Dinosaur Jr. - Farm album cover

Dinosaur Jr.

Farm, 2009

9.0 / 10

This may be going out on a limb here, but Dinosaur Jr.'s reunion album in 2007, Beyond was one of the best albums of said year, if not one of ...

Pink Mountaintops - Outside Love album cover

Pink Mountaintops

Outside Love, 2009

7.2 / 10

Shoegaze and psychedelics just naturally go hand in hand. Sure, you can have one without the other, but you’d probably be cheating yourself of one of two things: a spiritual ...

Sunset Rubdown - Dragonslayer album cover

Sunset Rubdown

Dragonslayer, 2009

8.9 / 10

Spencer Krug may be our generation’s Robert Pollard. Both seem to excrete music. Both create surreal visions full of vibrant characters and dense metaphor. Like Pollard's best albums, Dragonslayer sweeps ...

Bon Iver - Bon Iver album cover

Bon Iver

Bon Iver, 2011

8.5 / 10

The fact that this album is self-titled is really surprising. A self-titled album usually represents and displays everything the artist embodies. Their most predominant musical characteristics, if you will. For ...

Sharon Van Etten - Tramp album cover

Sharon Van Etten

Tramp, 2012

6.1 / 10

I’m not going to lie. I’m reaching a bit out of my comfort zone on reviewing this one. And, yes, the rating system is a bit skewed toward albums that ...

Foxygen - ...And Starpower album cover


...And Starpower, 2014

7.3 / 10

Since the first time I heard the dewy-eyed lyric, “I caught you sipping milkshakes in the parlor of the hotel,” I’ve been somewhat smitten with the psychedelic princes behind Foxygen’s ...

Angel Olsen - My Woman album cover

Angel Olsen

My Woman, 2016

8.5 / 10

Angel Olsen has been very active since the release of her debut cassette Strange Cacti, revealing a very promising work. Her dark indie folk/rock tone had a haunting effect, which ...
