Gold Panda – Half Of Where You Live

There’s simply no way to avoid wonky music at the moment. Chillwave is a big thing right now and it’s a welcome refresher for sweaty summer nights. Compared to Lucky Shiner; the new album Half Of Where You Live by electronic wunderkind Gold Panda has a lesser pop approach, but is way more chilly and dreamy and stimulates every single […]

Mr. Oizo – Amicalement

Expect the unexpected, kids. You never really know what Mr. Oizo a.k.a. Quentin Dupieux‘s up to when it comes to a new release. Except that it’s gonna be electronic, trashy and yet geeky as fuck. Amicalement‘s got every ingredient disposable that characterizes Mr. Oizo‘s sound and there’s still room for a surprising collaboration with Marilyn Manson on the second track Solid, which […]

Justice – Access All Arenas

There’s no better way to start the festival season than with a live album by one of your favourite bands ever, in this case Justice‘s live performance on Access All Arenas. As a matter of fact, I’ll be rocking this year’s Rock Werchter festival once again and I’ve been able to experience the sheer power of Justice‘s live sets on […]

As the ambience and emotions caused in that track were far more […]

The Dillinger Escape Plan – One Of Us Is The Killer

What’s the sense of Parental Advisory stickers, nowadays? I mean, seriously; is cussing really that kind of big deal to society? Wouldn’t you prefer to hear your beloved daughter cursing in pain than seeing her preggers? One of us is the killer by The Dillinger Escape Plan is the cursing therapy against all odds. But one should still rethink the […]

Daft Punk – Random Access Memories

First things first; don’t expect me to start this review with a quote like “They’re back!”. Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo had never been away and this is not an ESPN sports announcement. There’s been a lot of talk and anticipation about Daft Punk‘s upcoming release Random Access Memories. It first started with a 10 second […]
