Trump is still standing, the internet is no longer free and open, and we’re one year closer to the dreaded L train shutdown. But hey, at least we can finally dance… to these twenty-five albums.
Welcome to This One Goes to Eleven’s fourth-annual, year-end metal meltdown. By now you know the drill—I write a blurb about the records I liked best, you disagree, we go our separate ways until the new year. This year, however, there is one major tweak to the formula: Instead of tackling the entire planet’s musical […]
Some of you might be nerding out at Comic Con this weekend, but music nerds of all kinds have a veritable feast of options to rival those reaching a once-a-year climax. It was tough to narrow it down to only five options, so don your most obscure band shirt and take in the nods of […]
Local Brooklyn staple Sacred Bones Records has been basking in the glow of Showtime’s storied revival of 90’s cult classic Twin Peaks. While it’s been a few weeks since the last appearance of a track off Sacred Bones, we can’t help but wonder if we’ll hear any more from our hometown heroes in the 9 […]
Still processing the news that Chris Cornell died today, Soundgarden have always been a huge favourite. I’ll be in Lisbon this weekend on a much needed break but I’m still trying not to be disappointed at missing some of these.

The 2016 edition of MDF kicked off yesterday, which means 50% of the NYC metal scene has packed up and moved south for the weekend. Thankfully there’s still enough radioactive spillover to go around, however, so sit down, shut up (yes, that means me too), and dig in.
Love is in the air, or not, this weekend; I’ll be able to help with the latter. Hopefully it’s a long one for all, however, with President’s Day on Monday. Forget about the potential -18 degrees Celsius temperatures (come on people, let’s stop using Fahrenheit, it’s so unbecoming and idiotic), wrap up warm and get […]
It seems like a lot of the local news is on a bit of a downer this week, neighbourhood bars are closing while Starbucks gets an alcohol licence, and then of course, there is this; it’s enough to make you question humanity. However, just like the fact that we’re actually living in the most peaceful time in human history is a hard […]
