Luna Li’s “Cherry Pit”

By Gus Rocha One of the most compelling and notable singles released this past month, “Cherry Pit” stands as the pinnacle of Los Angeles-based artist Luna Li’s skyrocketing career. A native of Toronto, Li grew up in a musical environment and, at an early age, began studying classical music and hanging around a tight-knit community of musicians who attended her mother’s partner’s music school. After graduating high school, she attended…

Iggy Pop – A Million In Prizes: The Anthology (CD)

Iggy Pop has went too long without a comprehensive discography, especially considering the sheer weight of eir contributions to the state of current music. EMI has found this fact to be particularly fitting and really have hit a home-run with this disc. Now, there is nothing wrong with the collection of tracks – all the hits are there, whether it be “Raw Power”, “Lust For Life”, “Real Wild Child” or…

Incarnated – Pleasure of Consumption (CD)

The repetition that starts out “Dying Sounds” is on the verge of being unbearable; there can only be so many times that a band can expect a riff to win over the crowd. A number of times on “Pleasure of Consumption”, especially during tracks like “Blood For Blood” “the drumming moves beyond the realm of what can be done a human and honestly sounds as if someone looped the hits…

I Farm – So My Kids Won’t Have To (CD)

I Farm are beyond quick in their style. A screamed out vocal style is present that is not quite unlike Leftover Crack, where there is a high amount of early (1,039-era) Green Day hidden amongst these screeched-out vocals. Tracks are almost always under two minutes; if a song is going badly for I Farm, there is ample chances for the band to bail. During a track like “Luck (Likes The…

Idioverse – Demo (CD)

“Lounge Music For Punks”; no. Alternative music with strong ties to Radiohead and Jane’s Addiction, yes. Beginning their disc with “Outstamp”, an over-distorted track that has hints of “Street Spirit” in it, a mess of two and three voices that really doesn’t get far off the group, especially with the 60s-influenced guitar work in the bridge. The odd time-signature and squeaky, Incubus-esque vocals of Ben van der Poorten during the…

Idiot Pilot – Strange We Should Meet Here (CD)

The sound of idiot Pilot looks back to the shoegazer rock of the mid-nineties, slowly gliding over tracks like “Losing Color” with controlled chaos (in terms of the guitar riffs) and ethereal-feeling vocals. The much more noisy “A Day In The Life of a Poolshark”, specifically the Jeckyl/Hyde nature of the track allows for all listeners to see another side of the band. The look-back towards Radiohead’s “Ok Computer” is…
