Photos: Iceage, The Men & No Joy- Culture Collide

As part of Filter Magazine’s annual Culture Collide Festival, Danish punks Iceage shared a bill with NY’s The Men- afterwards Canadian shoegazers No Joy played across the street inside of a French restaurant. Iceage’s sophomore effort, You’re Nothing is out now / The Men’s latest, Campfire Songs just dropped via Sacred Bones / No Joy’s lovely...
Sacred Bones is Having An End of The World Party

Sacred Bones is Having An End of The World Party

Sacred Bones Records are a Holloweyed favorite. Safe to say we pay attention to each and every release (Zola Jesus, Psychic Ills, The Men, Cult of Youth, etc.) they drop. To celebrate the NY imprint’s 5th year alive (woo!), the label is having an apocalyptic (well, because it falls on 12.21.12, the supposed Mayan end-date) party in the...

Exciting news. Raucous NYC cyberpunks Pop. 1280 have just announced the details of their debut longplayer for Sacred Bones. Entitled The Horror, the release drops January 24th. We’ve loved this band for while; since their fantastic The Grid EP (review) and their recent “Thirteen Steps” b/w “Dead Hand” 45rpm single for Blind Prophet. I’m anxious to hear the...
Case Studies Fills the Night

Case Studies Fills the Night

I played Leonard Cohen’s Songs of Love and Hate for someone the other night. She had never heard it. The seminal 1971 release, equally provoking, isolated and chilling exists on delicate footing. Now, 40 years down the line, after just minutes of The World Is Just a Shape to Fill the Night, I’m reminded of much the...
