I recently turned on the radio on the way home from work. A DJ on 91.7 KTRU was rambling about the songs he played during his show. He talked about a few of the shows the station hosts, including an experimental music show that runs during the week sometime (interesting). Just as I was about […]

September 27th, 2004 · Comments Off on Ten Questions for The Methods
The Methods are a local band that recently released their debut album, Realized Amidst Sorrow (available here). The band’s sound is not unlike early Radiohead or Coldplay, yet is a bit more “dreamy” (if I may be so bold) than those bands.
After catching The Methods live a few times this year, I can honestly say […]

September 15th, 2004 · Comments Off on Your own personal salad toss…
I’ll admit I own Marilyn Manson’s Mechanical Animals album–felt it was some throwback to early Bowie in a way. I know, I know. Must’ve been a phase when I bought it.
Anyway, I was looking to find out when Rye Coalition‘s debut for Dreamworks will be released (they’ll be in Houston in October) and came across […]

September 4th, 2004 · Comments Off on Under The Radar‘s protest auction
As a rule, I like my music separate from everything else. I do not care to hear a musician spouting off about how “the sheep” should vote so-and-so out of office or how much so-and-so blows. And I don’t need some coked-up manic depressive telling me how to cast my vote. Okay? So don’t do […]
