The Decemberists

8.9 / 10

Deerhoof, never one to rest on their laurels, is back in 2004 with Milk Man. Things seem to be the same as always as the public wonders, "Can Deerhoof really ...

The Decemberists - Picaresque album cover

The Decemberists

Picaresque, 2005

7.9 / 10

Besides getting started, the hardest thing about writing reviews is coming up with original ways of putting things. Not stealing ideas from other magazines is tough, and it becomes especially ...

The Gossip - Standing in the Way of Control album cover

The Gossip

Standing in the Way of Control, 2006

8.0 / 10

If The Gossip were a lesbian they'd be the cool hip lesbian. You know, they're mid-way through their Philosophy degree, they shop at Salvation Army to approach a chunkier Karen ...

Erase Errata - Nightlife album cover

Erase Errata

Nightlife, 2006

7.2 / 10

I fear it may happen one day; someone will slip up, let the cat out of the bag, and give the game away. Someone may, one day, tell Erase Errata ...

Elliott Smith - New Moon album cover

Elliott Smith

New Moon, 2007

9.0 / 10

Elliott Smith's tragic death is seemingly unavoidable when talking about his music. It seems so interlinked with the subject matter of his songs that one must always connect the two; ...

Marnie Stern - In Advance of the Broken Arm album cover

Marnie Stern

In Advance of the Broken Arm, 2007

5.8 / 10

It took me a little while to hear the music in this music. At first and even tenth listen, Marnie Stern sounds more dedicated to experimentation, or newness, or maybe ...

The Old Haunts - Poisonous Times album cover

The Old Haunts

Poisonous Times, 2008

6.5 / 10

What is it with bands changing drummers so often? I know it’s not uncommon to change a member in a group but it seems like the drummers are slightly over-represented ...

The Shaky Hands - Lunglight album cover

The Shaky Hands

Lunglight, 2008

6.9 / 10

It’s raining today. No sun. Shaking angly tree branches. Impenetrable sky rising up out of the ground. Hourless glide from late morning to dusk. I’ve been in bed all afternoon, ...

The Paper Chase

Someday This Could All Be Yours (Part 1), 2009

7.0 / 10

The first thing that’s going to strike you about The Paper Chase is that they’re a quirky indie band. What you get in the first song is what you’re going ...

Elliott Smith - An Introduction To... album cover

Elliott Smith

An Introduction To..., 2010

7.8 / 10

It is hard to understand the purpose of a release like An Introduction to Elliott Smith. Should it be seen as a retrospective look at one of the more revered artists ...

The Thermals - Personal Life album cover

The Thermals

Personal Life, 2010

8.0 / 10

It’s very rare that an album can be described as “charming.” However, it’s an appropriate way to describe indie-punk outfit The Thermals’ fifth full length album Personal Life. That’s until ...
