Kevin Shields Makes Noise Complaint

How ironic! The man responsible for thee loudest show I've ever been to in my life (My Bloody Valentine @ Santa Monica Civic Center on October 1st & 2nd of 2008) has logged a complaint about a bar in his neighborhood that could make too much noise. Laughing out loud I am! No but seriously, I do get it. I live in Hollywood and it ain't exactly quiet here most […]

The Breeders 20th Anniversary Reissue And Tour

Wow! I can't believe it sometimes. How did Last Splash by The Breeders get to be 20 years old so fast?

Shoegaze From The Bay Area: Whirr

Dark and beautiful Shoegaze. That's Whirr. Formerly called Whirl, they're about to release About, their second EP to date. Their first, Pipe Dreams, garnered them some My Blood Valentine and Slowdive comparisons which definitely got my attention. "Swoon" is the first track released from About where I'm hearing little touches of Ride and Cocteau Twins influence in there as well as the aforementioned MBV and Slowdive. I'm diggin' it. About […]
