VARIOUS ARTISTS: Nadine Records Sampler Vol. 1: CD

Wow, was I stoked to get this one in my review materials. So many exciting bands on one compilation! I love compilations! Nadine Records is also focused specifically on the Pacific Northwest, so I’ve got some particular interest here. The comp contains a song each from the records released by Nadine so far and it’s […]

VIBORA: Self-titled: CD

This is a four-piece with no real internet presence to speak of. I’m assuming they’re from Arizona since that’s where the record was recorded, but who knows. What I can tell you is they play fast metal with some sharp leads and a heavy rhythm section. But I’m really not into the vocal delivery. This […]

VILETONES: Fleurs Du Mal: LP

This, for those keeping track, is the first legit vinyl pressing (was previously released on CD as A Taste of Honey in 1994) of a collection of demos recorded by one of Canada’s earliest, most notorious, and best punk outfits. The sound quality on this is impeccable, as are the performances. Greg’s remastering makes things […]

The centerpiece of each of the three tracks on this one-sided 12”EP is Gabrielle Dana’s haunting and beautiful voice. The ethereal music surrounding her voice elevates the feelings behind her vocals, making listening to War Honey […]

WILD WINGS: Foil Landscape: 12” EP

This is an odd one. At its core, I reckon, it’s hardcore similar to what gave SST Records its reputation—primal, unpolished, punchy. On top of that they layer on heaps of sludgy psychedelia that sends things careening off in different directions for a bit before they head back to where they started, which adds some […]

Interview with Marc Ruvolo by David Ensminger

“I subsisted on a steady diet of science fiction, fantasy books, and comics. It’s just another way to explore the world, to read about places and things you never knew and might never see. And it gives me great subjects for poems—cargo cults, tulpas, rockabilly sorcerers.” –Marc Ruvolo
