Next big thing

As far as songs go, few prove as challenging to sing as our national anthem.

It’s a technically demanding tune from first note to last, to be sure, beginning with a low bellow that quickly soars toward star-punching high notes, eventually swelling to a show-stopping crescendo that even the most seasoned performer can have trouble mastering.

Steven Drozd — The Heart Is a Drum Machine

A Flaming Lip goes solo for soundtrack work


Indie

Stephen Carradini
The Flaming Lips are incredibly self-contained; the members rarely do side projects. So it’s with great interest that multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd’s score for the music documentary “The Heart Is a Drum Machine” appears.

The Radio Dept. - Passive Agressive: Singles 2002-2010

Trendy sounds from before the curve


Indie

Stephen Carradini
Dreamy, fuzzed-out psychedelic pop has been given a resurgence lately from both the chillwave people (à la Neon Indian, Baths, Houses, etc.) and from the pop/rock end (Best Coast, Dum Dum Girls, etc.). But before all of those bands, there was The Radio Dept.

Wye Oak — Civilian

Indie-rock mood pieces that don't bore


Indie

Stephen Carradini
It is helpful to consider Wye Oak in terms of punctuation.

Broken Records — Let Me Come Home

More emotional Scottish rock!


Indie

Stephen Carradini
Having fallen head over heels for Frightened Rabbit in 2010, I was more than excited to hear another emotion-laden Scottish band when Broken Records’ “Let Me Come Home” was passed my way. The album did not let its Scottish brethren down.

Colin Stetson — New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges

Vastly unusual in an incredibly good way


Indie

Stephen Carradini
Some musicians want to make you dance. Some musicians want to make you rock. Some musicians want your money. Some musicians want to make you think.

Foxes in Fiction — Alberto

Good tunes hiding in reverb


Indie

Stephen Carradini
The chillwave bubble has not yet burst. No matter how many dudes appear playing dreamy, reverb-heavy ambient pop, there are people ready to snap it up.

Purple Church - Woodsporn/Hayseed EPs


Indie

Stephen Carradini
I hadn’t even heard the “Woodsporn” EP before I was impressed with Oklahoma City band Purple Church, because anything that comes handnumbered, hand-printed and sporting a mini-zine (complete with fold-out mini-poster!) as liner notes is pretty impressive.
