While there may have been bigger names in alt-rock, there's no question that few have been as respected as that of fIREHOSE. Formed out of the heartbreaking wreckage of the Minutemen in 1986, fIREHOSE can not only claim to be the first “post-hardcore” band with a direct link to the initial movement, but also helped expose the alt-rock and grunge scenes to the public by bringing their sound to a major label (Columbia Records) and beating the landmark releases by...

Many of us probably became acquainted with My Darkest Days thanks to their single "Porn Star Dancing," a silly little novelty song about one fellow who can't talk any of his girls into doing nasty things. No big deal, though, because he can head down to his local strip club – where the ladies will do anything for money. It's a song that would have been easily forgotten and off my radar if not for some fancy guitar work that...

Curse you, the Wild Flags! Of course you will live in the shadow of Sleater-Kinney for your entire existence. Fans have all accepted that and sort of understand that the band has come to terms with it too, but what positively irks me is that Wild Flag released a damned fine album last year – which  didn’t quite sink in until just a couple of months ago. Must you write such subtly complex music that it takes such attention to...

Sex. As W.C. Fields once said, “Some things are better than sex and some are worse, but there's nothing exactly like it.” It's true – sex has tremendous power; after that fateful first time, the perpetual desire common to every person on Earth is to find ways of getting more first, and then getting as much as possible after that. Sex has toppled entire empires and led to complete societal ruin (some of the biggest stories which exemplify that fact...

Ever heard a song and known on the first play that it was going to mean something, be important and/or be the one that people point to and talk about years later? Records like that do exist and, at least occasionally, it is possible to know them when they arrive – that's why those with a clue are already singing the praises of On The Impossible Past by The Menzingers. Listeners will know they're hearing something which may change their...

Domino is excited to announce Dirty Projectors highly anticipated sixth album, Swing Lo Magellan on July 10th (North America) / July 9th (rest of the world). With Swing Lo Magellan, David Longstreth shows he really doesn't know how to do the same thing twice. This time, beyond the aughts-era duality of retromania and neophilia, and beyond his band’s reputation for dizzying, heady innovation, Longstreth has found the beautiful, generous simplicity of the heart and soul. Same as it ever was. And this must be...
