  1. Magic Number
    by MarchFourth
    00:00/00:00
    Magic Number Magic Number
    I saw this band perform "by accident" after my friends' band opened for them. What a treat. I entered expecting nothing, and ended up dancing my a** off for two cathartic hours (while screaming myself hoarse). "Magic Number" is my current fav track because of the lyrics. I'm going to be the same age as the singer next month (the "magic number") and I, too, am refusing to become sad, old, round or whatever ppl say one should be (at any age).

    I saw these guys play in Mnpls at the Triple Rock. I shook the singer's hand and said I'd buy the album. Because it's so good. Thank you for keeping the faith. I don't really know the catalogue yet, but I will.

    I AM NOT A GOAL ORIENTED PERSON I AM NOT A GOAL ORIENTED PERSON
    The entire EP is so very strong, but "I Am Not a Goal Oriented Person" signifies all that I've missed in American hardcore these many years. It's a song for the alternative olds, and it f***ing nails it. "What Goals? I'm OLD. Yeah, right." Yeah. Right.

    Daddy's Money Daddy's Money
    I've somehow only *just* discovered this band. Sound is reminiscent of early '90s Amphetamine Reptile bands, which is a high compliment. And I love it. Heavy, dumb, smart, omnipotent, glorious.

    Seizure and Desist Seizure and Desist
    Dave Lombardo and Mike Patton. That's why. Holy f*** this sounds promising. I play it on my Bluetooth while biking. P*** so many people off it's worth the money. "Passing on the left ... YAAAAAAAAH!"

    I love so many songs on this album. I choose "National Insurance" because it is the most transgressive song I could possibly play out my car window in the American Midwest.

    Because this is one of the best instrumentals I've heard in years. I dance in place every time it comes up in my home or car queue. Really, SC3 is a find. A wonderful band.

    bad boys die in the bath bad boys die in the bath
    I chose this song because it's the one playing at the moment. And that's the thing about Andy Falkous projects ... they're earworms. Every song has a hook. Every lyric tickles a part of the brain other artists ignore. I recommend this band (and Falkous' main band, Future of the Left) to anyone who enjoys the ethos of '80s post-punk, dense wordplay,and a bit of well-positioned snark. None of my friends like this band, and I can't fathom why. Maybe they're just c***s.
  15. Only Ghosts
    by Red Fang
    00:00/00:00
    Cut it Short Cut it Short
    Red Fang is a guilty pleasure for me, as they are a bit obvious. The nerd-guy cheap name-brand beer-swilling from Portland vibe ... it's just studied enough to feel like a modern take on those hair metal bands I loved in the 80s and later regretted. Like WASP, but in Chuck Taylors instead of codpieces. But, I loved WASP in their day, and I also love Red Fang. Not many bands play good pop metal these days. And not many bands are fun. At all. So, I'll take what I can get

    Popular Demand Popular Demand
    I'm a little disappointed that, after years of exploring more complex arrangements with three- and four-members, Big Biz returned to its original two-man config. That might have been a cost-based decision for all I know. What's clear is I still love their music, Like every other Big Biz release, "CYW" is loaded with hooks, humor and a courageous spirit many superficially similar bands lack. Big Biz is a bit weird, and in the best way.
  17. One Thousand Needles ep
    by BISON
    00:00/00:00
    Calm, Friendly and Euthymic Calm, Friendly and Euthymic
    Bison, or Bison B.C., or whatever we have to call them now, are virtually unknown, and they shouldn't be. They play wonderfully wooly, primitive hard rock, that -- for me at least -- stands apart from the herd. (Enough buffalo allusions yet?) Anyway, I worry this band will fade away, especially since Metal Blade cut them a few years back. They were too good for that, and a trip into their catalogue should impress any hard rock fan with stoney tendencies.

    I have one complaint about Christian Fitness albums (and to a lesser extent the Future of the Left catalogue), and it's the mix. Some songs, I assume purposely, seem to sound like the audio equivalent of an over-processed jpeg. It happens on the louder tracks, and it's possibly to give the songs a Steve Albini-esque patina? Whatever the case, Andy Falkous writes great songs, intelligent, funny, striking, memorable songs. So, don't let the aesthetic get in the way. There's gold here.

    Diagnostic Front Diagnostic Front
    My friends -- that is, the ones polite enough to say why they don't like my music instead of pretending I didn't speak -- tell me Big Biz is "screamy," "too intense", and "not like Foo Fighters." It's "a slab of meat, but in musical form".

    Fine! Big Biz *is* all of these things, and wonderfully so. They scream, shake walls, play riffs and break brains. They sing choruses that stick in your ear, and not one of them is named Dave Grohl.

    Buy this single and you shall be redeemed.
  20. Battlefields/Into The Light 7"
    by Big Business
    00:00/00:00
    Into The Light (Sioux, Steven Severin, Budgie and John McGeoch) Into The Light (Sioux, Steven Severin, Budgie and John McGeoch)
    Big Biz is a loud, fuzzy, heavy band that punishes ear drums and instruments as harshly any of its contemporaries. That its members covered a relatively obscure 80's synth ballad (recorded in its dreamy glory by post-punk pioneers Siouxie & The Banshees) instead of, say "Ace of Spades" is no accident, and hints at the nuance and complexity that lurks behind the band's ever-present bombast. Many bands are loud, but this "alternative" take is what differentiates Big Business from its peers.
  21. Starving Out the Light
    by Black Fast
    00:00/00:00
    Obelisk Obelisk
    My favorite college theater prof's son is in the band. And we did "Equus" in f***ing western Iowa, so you know enormous balls run in the fam, K? : )

    aghast, anew, anon aghast, anew, anon
    Andrew Falkous pouring yet another serving from his overactive mental teapot while possibly recruiting a friend or two to serve the biscuits. This man is creatively fecund. Ideas seemingly evaporate from his pale skin like illuminated flop sweat. I'm jealous, frankly, but also thankful, because his music expresses exquisite, necessary things. If you love "British" music, particularly the good stuff John Peel used to champion 20 or 30 years ago, you'll feel right at home here..
  23. Murder The Mountains (Deluxe Edition)
    by Red Fang
    00:00/00:00
    Malverde Malverde
    I owned this album for over a year before I realized how good it was. I had to get past the growl of "Malverde" and find the hooks in the later tracks before I understood this wasn't just another sludgey/stoney band with loud guitars and no sense of melody (or humor).. The hooks got me to listen to the lyrics, and the lyrics got me to appreciate the whole KISS-as-nerds dynamic (there's a parallel but no room to explain). I guess what I'm saying is Red Fang is kind of special.
  24. Whales and Leeches (Deluxe Version)
    by Red Fang
    00:00/00:00
    Blood Like Cream Blood Like Cream
    This is Red Fang's "breakthrough" album.The one that pulled them out of the underground (or not-quite underground) and got them on Letterman.;The music video for "BLC" was also highly memorable and entertaining, what with Fred Armisen's cameo and the fun/silly "beer zombie" theme. To many rock fans, Red Fang are synonymous with Portland, cheap beer, safe-to-consume nerd culture and super catchy rock. Not full-on otaku, but more "The Pukes of Hazzard." God love 'em for it.

    Trees Trees
    I've listened to thousands of bands, and for the past five years, Big Biz has been in my top five. Why? I love metal, post-punk and whatever alternative was before it wasn't. These guys sound like a KISS/Cure double header and smell like Soundgarden incense baked at 41Hz/140dB. Imagine Gene Simmons strutting in laceless pink hightops while scrooning you're his dream-pop sugar lolli-bear but warning you that trees die and you can't stop it.

    Nobody does this s***! That's what I'm saying.
