Alright, alright, so 2007 was not a great year for the corporate machine. Sales of albums slumped and only the promise of an uninterrupted string of 5th-grade level ringtone rap songs has given the labels any peace. Oh, that and the honorable RIAA totally screwed that dame in Duluth for illegally downloading the Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris.” We got $220,000, and the added bonus that we can make fun of her for liking that piece of crap. So what if...

My name is Daryl, but you can call me Darko. My friends do anyway. I'm a bit of an old geezer (49 years young), and yeah, I've been a deadbeat too.

My dad gave it to me. The first band I ever loved though was The...

I want to write a positive sounding review of this really incredible album but there are some things that stick in my craw. Why not create a new sounding progressive-rock sound? Why rehash what has already been done so well over the years? These are new songs, but they...

Vampire Weekend is not a Goth band. They are not a Death Metal act, either. Their songs do not employ the use of heavy guitars or lighting quick drum solos. Their lead singer, a Columbia grad by the name of Ezra Koenig, does not scream into the microphone or pen lyrics that surround death and other dark matters. What they are is a rare Internet phenomenon, made possible in this day and age. Go ahead and type their name into...
