OK, in all likelihood this will be the last one of these this year. There will be a TOGTE year-end list of some form—and also FREEWilliamsburg’s top albums which I’ll contribute blurbs to—but this is probably it for semi-poetic waxing on new releases and weekly ticket link dumping until the first week of January or […]
In the immortal words of Crocodile Dundee: That’s not a release week, this is a release week.
Welcome to the first weekend of fall, folks. I’d tell you to get out the seance candles and inverted crucifixes, both those are year-round decorations around these parts.
Greetings! The weather is looking fine this weekend and if you’re looking for something to do outside of a show (shock horror!), I’d recommend going to the Vendy Awards on Governors Island.

Doom metal is, for want of a better term, very much alive and well in 2015. That’s in no small part to Windhand, who are riding high after releasing their third album, Grief’s Infernal Flower, just last month via Relapse. The record was produced by Jack Endino (whose credits include Nirvana, High On Fire and Soundgarden) and features all the […]
Everyone still cool with this whole barreling-indefinitely-on-into-the-endless-void thing? OK, great. Then let’s get on with it.
