Mac DeMarco, Filthy Friends, and other record releases we’re looking forward to

It is hardly a surprise that album release dates are jockeyed and shuffled around so often these days.

Record Store Day is going to kick ass this year

As a resident of this particular corner of the Southwest, I have enjoyed the last few months, one of the most precipitous winters I’ve seen in the two decades I’ve lived here.

’90s nostalgia bands are back with new albums, and they’re awesome

Nostalgia is a funny thing. Just the notion resonates differently with different people, dependent on whom you ask. Some look upon that sort of remembrance of the 1990s fondly, with the soft golden yellow glow and haze of idealized, if not fuzzy, memory. Others may prefer that the past stay the past while insisting that...
