KFAI - Roar of the Underground
L'Assassins - 7 PM Go!!! album cover


7 PM Go!!!, 2012

6.9 / 10

Big Action Records’ latest release, 7pm Go!!! from L’Assassins is definitely in line with their recent catalog. Instead of throwback garage, however, L’Assassins have a surf-rockabilly sound that’s takes inspiration ...

L.A. Takedown - II (2017) album cover

L.A. Takedown

II (2017), 2017

7.5 / 10

You don’t need to have been to Los Angeles to best experience L.A. Takedown’s latest album, II. It’s an album that’s evocative of a time and place, though it’s one ...

L7 - Scatter The Rats album cover


Scatter The Rats, 2019

8.0 / 10

At the height of the Northwest music explosion of the early 90s, L7 were among many bands branded with the ubiquitous tag of “grunge”. They weren’t from Seattle, but they ...

La Armada  - Anti-Colonial Vol. 1 album cover

La Armada

Anti-Colonial Vol. 1, 2018

7.3 / 10
200 Words Or Less

I usually lean more melodic than heavy in my daily listening. But there’s a time and place for everything, and La Armada definitely hit that craving for pure vitriolic aggression. ...

La Coka Nostra - Masters of the Dark Arts album cover

La Coka Nostra

Masters of the Dark Arts, 2012

8.0 / 10

Masters of the Dark Arts marks the return of La Coka Nostra, a rap supergroup who were last heard from in ’09 on their then long-awaited debut album A Brand ...

La Crisi - II - Tutti a Pezzi album cover

La Crisi

II - Tutti a Pezzi, 2008

7.5 / 10

Is there any better imagery than broken teeth? La Crisi don’t seem to think so. Given the ferocity on II - Tutti a Pezzi I have to wonder if the ...

La Dispute - Rooms Of The House album cover

La Dispute

Rooms Of The House, 2014

9.5 / 10

La Dispute’s 2011 post-hardcore masterpiece Wildlife was not only the highlight release of that year, but one of the finest records that I myself have humbly observed. Personal accolades aside, this opinion ...

La Dispute - Wildlife album cover

La Dispute

Wildlife, 2011

8.7 / 10

La Dispute is a band that catches a lot of flak. People tend to jump to conclusions about their “whiney” sound, and the infamous song “Such Small Hands” doesn’t help ...

La Piovra - La Piovra album cover

La Piovra

La Piovra, 2006

7.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Music from foreign countries is something that I always find interesting, especially when they sing in their native language. La Piovra takes its name from a series on Italian TV ...

La Quiete - Tenpeun '01-'05 album cover

La Quiete

Tenpeun '01-'05, 2006

9.1 / 10

For whatever reason, the Italian La Quiete is supremely underrated. They've been putting out releases since 2001 and for whatever reason dudes and dudettes alike are sleeping on them. Well, ...

La+ch and Dustbuster - Hunter album cover

La+ch and Dustbuster

Hunter, 2014

9.0 / 10
200 Words Or Less

It’s safe to say that everyone’s already getting a head start on choosing the song that will be most played this summer. Over the past few months, La+ch and Dustbuster ...

Ladyfinger (ne) - Dusk album cover

Ladyfinger (ne)

Dusk, 2009

7.0 / 10

I thought rock was a dead scene. The radio repeatedly fed me the term since my early teens, pushing different versions of the same band on the airways. Everything sounded ...

Ladyfinger (ne) - Heavy Hands album cover

Ladyfinger (ne)

Heavy Hands, 2006

3.5 / 10

First off, I have to say, "wow." This is really on Saddle Creek? That is totally unexpected. Being unfamiliar with what Ladyfinger (ne) is capable of musically, I am totally ...

Lafcadio - Kibosh album cover


Kibosh, 2008

5.4 / 10

I truly don’t know what to make of this band. Some reviewers might like to scope out the band before claiming the promo (Yes, that's how it works. Sorry to ...

Lagwagon - Hang album cover


Hang, 2014

8.0 / 10

Punk rock veterans, Lagwagon, had been missing from the scene for quite some time. Sure, they had a tour here and there as well as reissues of their 90s classics, ...

Lagwagon - I Think My Older Brother Used to Listen to Lagwagon album cover


I Think My Older Brother Used to Listen to Lagwagon, 2008

6.5 / 10

Closing in on twenty years as a band, Lagwagon presents us with new songs, perhaps aiming to revive that nearly defunct Fat/Epitaph sound. Having grown up on this band, I ...

Lahar - Provide & Conquer album cover


Provide & Conquer, 2005

7.0 / 10

The Northwest is breathing new life into its hardcore scene. They've got a lot of great bands right now - Go it Alone, Shook Ones, The Answer, Sinking Ships, Betrayed, ...

Lair of the Minotaur - Cannibal Massacre album cover

Lair of the Minotaur

Cannibal Massacre, 2005

7.0 / 10

In 2004 we were treated to Carnage, the debut effort from this throwback thrash/metal outfit from Chicago. If you heard it, good. If not, well, let's just say that the ...
