Win tickets to the SOLD OUT Okkervil River (solo) celebrates the 10th Anniversary of Black Sheep Boy

We’ve had a crush on Will Sheff since 2003 when Okkervil River’s album, Don’t Fall in Love with Everyone You See, made us question every band before them. Their songs are seductive and heart-wrenching, analytical and honest.  If you haven’t had a chance in the last 12 years to read about our coffee date with […]

Finally, a BellaMaine full-length

We got pretty excited about BellaMaine’s debut EP, Anxious Mind, last year. Five songs of their sweet-tart pop was a good start, but this week’s release of their self-titled album, Bellamaine, doesn’t come a moment too soon. Three songs from the EP have carried over to the full-length, and my favorite song from their live […]

DVD captures Lemolo's Beautiful Night

When local dream pop duo Lemolo sold out two nights at the Columbia Theatre for the release of their debut album Kaleidoscope, no one was more surprised than the artists themselves. Fortunately, their surprise didn’t stop them from thinking ahead, and they worked with local production company Creative Differences to record both shows for a […]

A new Exohxo EP… and a nifty online mixer

One of our favorite Seattle bands is in the throes of releasing their new EP, Stories and Fictions. The 7 songs (plus one demo) are cheerful and comforting, sweetened with pop and an "Untitled Song About Cats." They aren't intimidated by much. They lay orchestra strings along side punk punches to craft songs that are […]

Recommended show + free tickets: Hotels CD release at Columbia City Theater this Friday {4/27}

Seattle post-punk(ish) new wave band Hotels just released their latest EP Cinemascope I, the first of a series of three EPs that the band plan to put out. With this four song EP, Hotels sound as solid as ever; from the looping, jangly sound of album opener "The Reddest Rose" to the creeping bass line […]

Set your alarm for Lemolo tickets! {on sale this morning at 10a}

Perhaps some of the biggest news in local show-goings-on last week was the fact that our dear friends Lemolo sold out their record release show for their much-anticipated first full-length, Kaliedoscope {scheduled for June 29th at Columbia City Theater} in just under eleven hours. Eleven hours! The only time in recent memory that anyone's sold […]

Photo essay + weekend roundup: a double-dose of Eef

It was a great weekend for the music books, with so many good shows going on around town — and you can call us biased, but we really do think Friday's Imaginary Holiday Spectacular took the cake as the weekend-starter to top them all. We spent the night flitting between Santa Roderick's lap and the […]

Countdown to the Imaginary Holiday Spectacular: Eef Barzelay

Well, there's just about a day's worth of hours left until the party officially gets started, and it's time to talk about Eef. Eef Barzelay, mainstay of Clem Snide, heartstring-yanker extraordinaire, producer of subtle genius-infected beauty with every touch. On top of killer studio albums, he put out an EP recently of Journey-only covers, a […]
