Album Review: Feral Ohms

Feral Ohms Feral Ohms Amanaka, Contributor Remember getting thrown up against a wall and liking it? That’s what Feral Ohms feels like. A good old fashion ass kick straight to the ears. The name “Ethan Miller” was enough to get me interested. Miller has a stellar track record of musical outlets, playing in bands such as Comets on Fire, Heron Oblivion …

AJJ – The Bible 2

RJ Rueber, contributor Is it a true sequel to God’s #1 best seller? No, it’s simply AJJ (Formerly known as Andrew Jackson Jihad), and it kicks ass nonetheless. AJJ, fresh off a name change and insults from dick-wad fans, punches the hater’s teeth in with some loud, raw, and thought-provoking tunes. In typical AJJ style, the lyrics will give you …

The Melvins – Basses Loaded

Cee Cee Hill, contributor The Melvins have been around since 1983 and haven’t decided yet who will play bass with them. For their new album, Basses Loaded they have 6 different bassists.

Lindstrøm – Windings EP

  Sam Wingspan, Contributor Once upon a time I dated an opera singer. Her classical favorites included the greats like Verdi and Puccini. Yet, whenever we got in her car, as if by clockwork, some uptempo pop song by Mika or Ratatat would be on queue; incongruous against her preferential taste. Such is this rollicking Scandanavian synth disco EP from …

Puro Instinct – Autodrama

Andrea Bartunek, contributor Do you want to feel like you’re in the 80s? Then listen to this album. Sisters, Piper and Skylar of Puro Instinct have had a humble beginning in LA where most people’s dreams go to die.

Dinosaur Jr. – Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not

Adam Jacobs, contributor Lots of feedback and heavy distortion, the new Dinosaur Jr. album Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, is more Dinosaur Jr. than singer J Mascis’ tiny little Dino Junior in his tighty whiteys. Listening to this takes me back to taking bong hits out of my Tobacco Master in my friend’s garage while listening to “Feel …
