Iron & Wine – Archives Series No. 1

Michael Morales, contributor Do you remember back when Iron & Wine first blew up in the early aughts? Yeah, suddenly dudes were able to say, “I was wondering where that missing leg of one of my chromosomes went? Oh, thanks, Sam Beam!” That being said, my inner vagina really likes “Two Hungry Blackbirds” because I think it’s a veiled description of that Brazilian …

Mount Eerie – Sauna

Phil Elverum, aka Mount Eerie, takes his time crafting records that he is proud of. He focuses on physicality, rather than catering to the needs of the digitally thirsty consumer. Mount Eerie’s latest release Sauna is a shining example of Elverum in fine form. Sauna plays like a soundtrack to an acid trip in a barren Nordic landscape. The 10-minute …

Music Review – Wooden Wing – Permanent Daydream

Leah Brzezinski, contributor As S.H.I.T.’s unofficial “Midwestern music correspondent,” it’s high time I covered some of Chicago’s vast local music scene. Wooden Wing’s latest LP is equal parts rustic, groovy, and futuristic. It’s reminiscent of The Postal Service, with indie-pop male/female vocals, but set amidst ambient electric rock, field recordings, and lots of freaky instrumentation. Permanent Daydream is apt—it’s like …

Music Review – QuadkilleR – Untitled

Rosa Green, contributor  So, apparently in Arkansas they know of us here at Savage Henry as bitches who’ll review any damn thing that shows up on our desks! Yeah right! Like we would review some small time local political electro group from who knows where named QuadkilleR. It turns out they’re not that bad and I enjoy listening to them. …

Music Review – Autumn Electric – Flowers for Ambrosia

Adrienne Marie, contributor  The term “progressive” can be just as confusing as “alternative” (what the hell does that mean these days, anyway?). Sometimes music moves forward, using modern ideas, breaks that tired, old pop format, and can only be tagged with the label of “progressive.” I’d say that the newly-released fourth full-length album from Autumn Electric, Flowers for Ambrosia, is …

Music Review: Brother Dege – How to Kill a Horse

Cee Cee Hill, contributor  Brother Dege has been a regular of the underground music scene in Louisiana for the last 20 years. He plays what he describes as “Delta blues adapted for the 21st century.” One of his songs was recently used in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, generating some much deserved interest and attention. His songs transport you to Louisiana’s …

Music Review: The Chipmunks The Chipmunk Adventure Soundtrack

Leah Brzezinski, contributor I don’t exactly understand what this band The Chipmunks is going for, or what drugs they might be on. They’re sort of like The Mamas and the Papas, with 3 guys and 3 gals singing alternating male/female features with group tracks, except they sound like they’re sucking helium or are weird children or dwarves or something. It’s …

Six Beers Deep: Humboldt Brown Hemp Ale – Nectar Ales – ABV: 5.7%

My First Beer Ever (today): alright, the famous Humboldt Brown Hemp ale. Once upon a time this was actually brewed in Humboldt, but then the brand was bought and moved all the way to Paso Robles, which is only 480 miles south of Humboldt County. Regardless, the Firestone Walker Brewing company who now owns it decided to keep the name. …
