Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:Mutant Mayhem I used to be obsessed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a kid. Probably to an unhealthy degree. I remember picking up the Shell Shocked VHS (or was it Beta?) from the video rental place when I was a kid, and being...

A deeper look at the grooves pressed into the The Legend of Ice-T: Crime Stories 3LP set by Ice-T. It’s hard to know what to make of The Legend of Ice-T: Crime Stories exactly, in part because what the album wants to be isn’t particularly clear. A very...

Blue Beetle Let’s just get to it, OK? Because, this one is a straight up bummer. I’m saying this because I just came off  watching the Flash and being absolutely blown away by how competent and engaging it was. It wasn’t the greatest movie by any means, but...

SPOTLIGHT: Darkadelic
FEATURES

WHO: The Damned WHAT: Darkadelic WHY: Look, there’s no reason why seasoned veterans would still be putting out quality music this long into their career, but Darkadelic is catchy, sounds fresh, and made by a band who’s been around the block. There is no way a song...

A deeper look at the grooves pressed into Volores’ Ages LP. It may come as a surprise, but there’s a reason that I elected to review Ace Of Wands’ newest LP and Ages by Volores back-to-back: the albums feel like the work of two bands who could easily...

OSEESIntercepted Message There comes a point when we just have to draw a line in the sand and say, “This is too much!” I used to think John Dwyer’s Thee Oh Sees/Oh Sees/OSEES was such a prolific band that they’re not giving their audience enough time to...

The Hives Live @ The Sinclair, Cambridge MA [11-01-23]
LIVE MUSIC
