It’s been a hell of a week, so it would be great to talk about films that make us happy. Unfortunately, that’s not the show we prepped. Instead, we’ve got a dissection of characters who are pushed to the breaking point, inspired by Miles Teller destroying himself to become the next Buddy Rich in Whiplash. Show More Summary

You want the good news first or the bad news on this week's podcast? How about we sandwich the bad news in between some good news to make it easier to swallow? No matter how we present it, we are all going to have to work through the joys of content announcements, the sorrow of layoffs, and the technobabble of more Star Trek. Show More Summary

Andy Stott “Faith in Strangers” A lot of songs that are built around a post-punk type of bass line end up having that part completely overtake the rest of the composition, and every other sound is just some decoration for this huge, thudding thing at the center of the track. But that’s not what’s going […]
I like gut-wrenching songs about heartbreak and whiskey-induced mistakes, sung by a guy with a rough-hewn voice as much as anyone but sometimes there’s a need for a change of pace. Maggie Bjorklund’s excellent new record, Shaken, is exactly the change of pace I need from time to time. Bjorklund takes familiar instruments like guitar, [...]

Gerard Way “Brother” The majority of Gerard Way’s first solo album sounds like Britpop filtered through alt-rock and grunge, and you’d think I’d be the biggest mark for that. But as it turns out, my favorite on the record is the one that sounds the most like his old band, My Chemical Romance. “Brother” is […]
Moss Lime - "Calabria 2014". Montreal's dry-spirited post-punks pay tribute to Enur's club smash. They drain the ephedrine out, steep the tea for too long. It's a little droopy, a little bitter; a song for cracked concrete instead o...

Let’s start simple with Tampa rock band The Tim Version. Their name is probably a Replacements nod (frustratingly so when you’re a teenager with poor researching skills trying to Soulseek search for their albums and getting results of nothing but “Can’t Hardly Wait (Tim version)” from the Mats bootleg thing All For Nothing/Nothing For All, which obviously [...]
Thurston Moore “Forevermore” I’ve spent enough time listening to Thurston Moore over the past 20 years that his particular rhythms and tics are burned into my mind, enough that I can hear a new song by him and accurately anticipate his every move. He’s basically been on autopilot for a long time now, but I […]
Weaves - "Shithole" Lift my head from my body, loose already like a shard unglued, and rest it slanted in grass. Bring sun and wind like wet ingredients, lift it all into the air and let it go. Watch it...

Almost a year ago to the day, I heard the first four-song demo from Anchor Bends and rushed here to Ninebullets to tell as many people about as I could. The band features the greatest collection of Atlantans since Smoltz, Glavine, and Maddox. Band pedigrees include Leatherface, The Weight, All Night Drug Prowling Wolves, and [...]
Foxygen “How Can You Really” One of my friends made a joke that Foxygen’s …And Star Power sounds “like disc 47 of the Their Satanic Majesties Request sessions box set,” and yes, it definitely does. (With a bit of Todd Rundgren in there too, I suppose.) This isn’t surprising – a lot of the best […]
