Black Francis – SVN FNGRS – Review

July 1, 2008

Not the concept album of Bluefinger, this album sports at least a leitmotif: Demigods. Features strong, memorable choruses you can picture in movie trailers.

Youth Group – Skeleton Jar – Review

December 9, 2005

As much Death Cab For Cutie as alt rock, Youth Group play emotively lush, atmospheric pop with occasional explosive guitar and plenty of higher-note plucking.

Tracks and Fields – Review

March 7, 2005
