Rediscovered Albums - Boomtown Rats / The Fine Art Of Surfacing

There seems to be a recurring theme that leads to me rediscovering an album.  The album typically comes from my youth and has one song that I fear I may deafen myself with a pointy object if I hear one more time.  This album qualifies.

Album Review - Royal Blood / Royal Blood

It seems as though I have been writing a lot of album reviews lately.  There is a good reason for that.

The music that is coming out right now is killer.

I can't remember the last time that I was this excited about a series of releases.  Ryan Adams, Jenny Lewis, The New Pornographers, and a host of other have me chomping at the bit.  But there was one that I wasn't expecting that blew me away. 

Royal Blood.

My Top 10 Favorite Alternative Bands From the 80's

The 80's are a magical time for me.  I started hitting my stride around 16 and that is when I discovered alternative and punk music.  Then my life pretty much went into a tailspin.  Aaaahhh...those were the days.  Since I am feeling sentimental, let's go back and visit My Top 10 Alternative Bands from the 80's to see if we can relive the collapse.  I am basing my list on media in my collection and listens overall.

The Dead Milkmen @ Laurel Hill Cemetery - Philadelphia, PA 09/05/14

I had the strangest and most wonderful conversations the other night.

Chris: "What are you doing Friday?"

Me: "Nothing, Why?"

Chris: "Want to see The Dead Milkmen play a concert in a cemetery?"

Album Review - Ryan Adams / 1984 EP

After losing the lottery and not getting a copy of Ryan Adams' vinyl boxed set I swore I would never buy another record from Pax-Am Records.

And then Ryan Adams released the 1984 EP.
