Offers – Ne-Hi

Samantha Gilweit, contributor NE-HI seems like a band that has lot of punk friends they watch do drugs in the parking lot, but are promptly home by midnight because mommy told them so. What that means is structure with dirty influences, which makes for a highly entertaining, yet listenable album without the ego of many revival garage rock bands that …

Restaurant Review – Abruzzi – Arcata, California

Why do people do things they know are bad for them? The biology of the human body is a powerful force. It can make people do the exact thing they set out specifically not to do. Is there a real payoff to smoking a cigarette when it is raining outside? Your brain, lungs and frozen fingers say no, but a …

Six Edibles Deep

Edible 1 – The first one just kicked in. Fells like my center of gravity dropped out like in the middle of a dream I was having and that’s just the way it is. Why did I agree to this?   Edible 2 – Shouldn’t have gone to Safeway. I’m pretty sure I just ran into my son from the …

Six Beers Deep – Blueberry Oatmeal Stout – Buffalo Bill’s Brewery

Blueberry Oatmeal Stout Buffalo Bill’s Brewery ABV: 7.5% It Puts the Lotion on: So I went to their site and it said that this beer is available from November to January. I received this beer in June, which makes me question it’s freshness, mostly because the “blueberry” flavor that they say is in here is something akin to something I’ve …

Whitney – Light Upon the Lake

Sam Wingspan, contributor I have listened to Light Upon The Lake, the debut album by Whitney, three times in a row now. Not because I have a super analytical brain that needs to pick it apart like I’m watching Eraserhead on three cups of coffee; it’s because I have simply wanted to hear it again and again. The band, comprised …

SUUNS – Hold/Still

Andrea Bartunek, contributor Hold/Still by SUUNS is like jumping into a hot tub filled with bubble wrap. That’s the weirdest analogy I have ever made, but I’ll stick to it. It seems like that would feel good. I tried to play it in the store where I work, and one woman said, “This is weird music.” She’s right, but you …

Pervert – Touched By An Angel

This sounds like all of the other bands that sound like this. Fuzzy and fast, pseudo-monster growling, shrieking vocals stirring an audible mess. It reminds me of Spazz, and all of the other bands that sound like Spazz. My favorite song is “God Has No Dick,” as it is the shortest at a mere 18 seconds, and consists mostly of …

Album of the Month: John Carpenter – Lost Themes II

Director John Carpenter is known for his unique take on horror and science fiction with classic films such as Halloween, Escape from New York, Big Trouble in Little China, and They Live. What many people do not realize is that the soundscape music which perfectly complimented his movies were composed by none other than Mr. Carpenter himself. Now, with last …

Six Beers Deep – “805” Firestone Walker Brewing Company

805 Firestone Walker Brewing Company ABV: 4.7% One: Ok, so I’ve seen this beer on the shelf for months now on every endcap at the grocery store, and I’ve pretty much avoided it for that very reason. While FIrestone makes some decent brews, they’ve never been a company that I’ve been excited about, especially when there’s nothing on the labeling …
