Sounds like: Cari Cari, Wolf Alice, Warpaint, Wye Oak Song: RiotHorse - Rabbit Hole What's so good? Simple string work, pulsating rhythm and beautiful vocals. It's a recipe that can oftentimes come across as thoroughly boring, but not...Show More Summary
SBTRKT featuring Ezra Koenig “New Dorp New York” Ezra Koenig’s lyrics here are brilliant – he’s evoking very specific images in New York City, and contrasting them so that middle class Staten Island blurs with big money Manhattan. He’s playing a little game with the listener, but he always is, to some extent. I think […]

Another month, another round of MAP! September’s submission for Aus is ‘Life Tourist’ from Foreign/National; proof that this country still wrings a good guitar hook out every once in a while. If you’re local and... The post MAP September 2014 appeared first on Who The Hell.
David, Devindra, and Jeff get aren’t fans of the new Batmobile, still love Party Down (now on Hulu), and praise The Killing on Netflix. Plus, David tries and fails to defend the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes films. You can always e-mail...Show More Summary
Blonde Redhead - "No More Honey" Edmund was breaking into Alison's house. They hadn't spoken, not face-to-face, in a year-and-a-half. They'd seen each other in the sides of their eyes, in the peripheral run-off of looking at their son Frank....

I wrote about Billy Pettinger a few years ago when she was duetting with Joe McMahon as Billy + Joe. Since then, she’s forged forward with her solo career as Billy the Kid, releasing DIY long players each of the last few years. Even with all that momentum, this year’s Horseshoes and Hand Grenades still registers as a major step [...]
We are fortunate here at ninebullets that we have many artists submit their music to us for review. Often the submittals are accompanied by a brief bio about the artist. When I read the bio for Novak that she was a petite spitfire that happened to be a former boxer, well I was intrigued. A [...]
Things are getting messier...

Caribou “Silver” “Silver” is one of those songs where I have to assume the lyrics were written in some way as a response to the musical arrangement – everything in the song is moving in these slow, sad circles, so Dan Snaith sings about being heartbroken like it’s just being stuck in a painful loop. […]
The following is a guest post by Laura Allmon, whom I met due to 9B and have shared many a drink with since. Cyrus’ new album Dreamers of The Day fully embodies the sounds that one would expect from a typical Texas honky tonk. When I heard Cyrus’ first album I instantly thought how his [...]
Hopefully, you’ve already got 10/28 circled in red a couple of times on your mental calendar. That’s the day that Run The Jewels, the duo of El-P and Killer Mike, release RTJ2, their second album as a duo, and this thing is practically guaranteed to swallow up the universe. After sharing the monstrously intense first [...]
Rob Schwimmer - "Stormy Weather". In places, Schwimmer's solo piano version of "Stormy Weather" feels easy-breezy, comfortable. At other times it is full of disquiet: a life, a song, undone at the seams. A storm rolls in, streaked with...
Hyuna “Red” I’ve come to really love the K-Pop version of rap, which to me is both a more interesting version of the typical K-Pop aesthetic, and a bizarre reflection of American hip-hop. I love the way an artist like Hyuna can go out of her way to approximate the cadences and lyrical forms of […]
