Off to Be the Wizard Scott Meyer Narrated by Luke Daniels   HAAAHAAAHHHHAAAAAAHAAAAAHAAAAAAAAHHlololol 5 stars PS: If life is a computer program and you found the coding, wouldn’t you make yourself rich? Martin Banks did. Then he got in trouble, so he googled “best time to be a wizard” and changed his parameters to the middle ages to hide. When he …

Poison Idea – Confuse & Conquer

The self-proclaimed “Kings of Punk” from Portland, Oregon’s blank, blacked-out vacancies have been making loud and fast-paced, pissed-off hardcore punk rock music for over 35 years. Confuse & Conquer is the latest chapter in the P.I. saga, and in it we see the triumphant return of their late ’80s War All The Time-era guitarist Eric “The Vegetable” Olson. Songs like …

Six Beers Deep – Arrgh! Pale Ale

Arrgh! Pale Ale Lost Coast Brewery ABV: 5.2% Ahoy!: So yeah, gotta put it right out there, I’m not a huge fan of Lost Coast Brewery. I wouldn’t say any of them are really all that bad, it’s just that none of them really stand out. I always viewed Lost Coast as that brewery that somehow got onto the shelves …

Hinds – Leave Me Alone

Cee Cee Hill, contributor I’ll start with a disclaimer. I don’t like Adele’s new song “Hello.” That means my musical tastes are absolutely screwy compared to millions of people out there. So don’t be surprised if I find Hinds’ music exciting, fresh and cool. Hinds play surf garage lo-fi music. Their songs have catchy riffs, cool harmonies, and a lot …

White Fang – Chunks

Tommy Lucero, contributor White Fang is what I believe to be a breath of fresh bong smoke in a world of stale, backyard boogie breath. Lyrics like, “I hit the weed and then I passed it,” makes me feel there is somebody writing music I can finally relate to. The Fang’s sound harkens back to a simpler time, when happy hours …

Deerhoof – Fever 121614

Samantha Gilweit, contributor Deerhoof is a band that doesn’t give a FUCK what you think about them. They didn’t give a fuck in the mid-90’s when they first formed and went on stage wearing bear suits, destroying instruments and they definitely don’t give a fuck now with the long awaited release of the masterful and fantastically chaotic live album, Fever …

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – Hell EP

Sam Greenspan, contributor This all-too-brief and incredibly bracing shot of audible absinthe from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart successfully accomplishes what most musicians could only hope to have their EPs do: leave you wanting more and more. The first song and title track is replete with nods to their influences from Prince’s seemingly effortless hooks, with a poetic …

Goodman – Honey and Wine

Andrea Bartunek, contributor Honey and Wine by Goodman is a perfect stony Sunday afternoon of an album. The short intro, probably stolen from an old jazz album titled “A Goodman,” pulls you in and you’re like, “What?” Then it’s chill from there. This trippy instrumental record is great driving music, and also lovely for eating nachos while alone. You should …

Book Review: Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace

This monster book about a tennis academy sounds like a real snorejob but it is probably my favorite book of all time, and I have books tattooed on my body. This thing is so loaded with insight that it bottoms out over speedbumps. If I describe the plot, it sounds like a shit show, but that’s because I’m a billionth …
