this album is amazing!
What a weird combo. ‘The Last Picture Show’ is a great film.
This movie so rocks. I loved it.
It’s weird, “That Beep” sounds so much like Annie. AIH have definitely changed up their style.
It’s all about vinyl: http://arstechnica.com/media/news/2009/01/music-sales-up-10-in-2008-thanks-to-downloads-and-vinyl.ars
A lackluster DVD so mediocre that it’s been reviewed twice on this website!
Can I get a comment on the music of Conor Oberst and not his comments or who he dedicated songs to. Please. It’s not too much to ask from a music website is it.
I still haven’t seen this movie. I’ve really admired Aronofsky’s previous films though.
What a terrible DVD cover. WOW. Terrifying.
I’ve never been a big fan of Silversun…meh.
“The material isn’t always up to par the way earlier between-the-records EPs were, but it still beats the hell out of Plans.”
THANK YOU. and agreed.
great review! both shows rocked!
This reviewer really transported me to the show! Great writer for a great performer.
Hello Kyle lemmon, Really very nice information on Buraka Som Sistema. Really very nice and fantastic info on black diamond. Thanks for your nice info.
I just wanted to say I really liked your review of House of Mystery. It was good to know how it has developed over the years. Keep up the good work.
This is an ok ep. I have to say that none of their recent material is even close to their earlier albums.
FYI just watched this show, sucks! Wished it didn’t but it does. Haha all wealthy people are dumb, evil, and think they can buy anthing… jeeze lets just stereo type everyone. Wealthy people just don’t deserve to live I guess according to all these shows that exploit wealth as evil.
Rockband for real. It’s realy kicks ass) I hope the part two kicks ass as twice)))
The lyric in “James Blues” is:
“James incurred the wrath of jealous woman
And not long after that
Was spending all his weekends
Trying to relearn
How a young man yearns after a nurse”
It’s about castration. I have little more of a sense of humor than your interpretation suggests.
“have a little more of”. oops.
Great review, Frank.
This picture represents a huge leap forward for its director..a very nice post Chris.
Wonders never cease, Coachella’s when this both fabulous performers start the event with a great start it is great to watch..
The rock band which we can say alternative is My Bloody Valentine..This is a very nice post
She’s so hot/cute/adorable….....She is so cute…
Wow! Marcus, This is a very nice post…Depeche Mode are fabulous..
Some styles are more casual while others are meant for going out on ...poofing up skirts is very good
When Bruce Springsteen finally broke through to national recognition in the fall of 1975 after a decade of trying, critics hailed him as the savior of rock
The bonus features with Doubt on Blu-ray start off with From Stage to Screen, a series of interviews with the cast and crew about…
I’m one of the fans of The Killers. They’re cool.
I saw them play in Austin a few weeks ago. The new stuff is awesome, and they played beautifully. My favorite track is “Slow Fade,” a single tear streamed down my face when they played it. So good.
Thanks for such a detailed review. You’ve very keen observation for the details that should be there, indeed.
Hi Chris, you are so right about the borders - the top one is incredible. Great thinking!!!
Bonnaroo has always placed an emphasis on local and sustainable ways of making music. ..Nice Blog.
I was actually hoping for a really good Doubt as a Blu-Ray comp….and it is able to prove itself….
I totally get what you mean when you say “the sound of best friends making music together.” I think their sound is really warm and strangely intimate. I don’t know. It feels like music at a house party and the band is having beers and talking between songs—I like it; but the production is really thin, as you said.
Thanks for the review, Laura.
You have to be kidding me Lily. This show does suck and bad. Totally unrealistic specifically in how these characters behave. Stupid crap.
Saw Bruce in Philly April 28th and April 29th. ALWAYS a great show! I went with a friend who had never seen him and she said it was more than a concert, it was an event—how right she was.
It is really a nice post, its always great reading such posts, this post is good in regards of both knowledge as well as information. i like stuff like ghostland observatory, the hush sound, the kills, indie music, black moth super rainbow, radiohead. anything that sounds weird and funky and has good sound to it. i do not like the teen boy singing the song. generations i like are indie, visual, experimental, psychedelic. along those lines. thank you in advance for the helping me on my music quest.Thanks for the post.
Nice Cracker reference!
A full album is set for release in September 2009. The confidence, wide range of obvious natural talent and exceptional promise of these songs is undeniable. The future for First Aid Kit feels star bright.
thanks for info.
The “barely” is everything in Wendy and Lucy. The sparse dialogue and lack of plot was the film’s message. Its panoramic moments said so much without saying anything at all. Wendy appears sedated much of the film but in a single moment, a bathroom meltdown, her story unravels. A story no one is sure of. In most every shot of the film we follow Wendy but learn little. We leave her without closure, but feel satisfaction without the closure nonetheless, amazed that such simple experience could be so captivating for two hours. I only wish I knew what her bandage was for and why her sister rejected her. Why else was she hurting and why was it so important for us not to know?
oo fantastic film
This was SO good!!!!
Why are you so LATE on the tallest man UTR? I’m disappointed and mad at you for it. I hope you do a feature on him when his next album is release!
Counting down…freaking out. Come on Friday!
thanks for article.
I downloaded a few songs from this collection, I like it.
I really love it, play it on my laptop regularly.
I love “Tracy’s Waters” , it’s a wonderful mix of Psych folk and Dream pop
I loved Grizzly Bear! It was so calm and intimate in that space
So, if I understood this correctly, they are Australians making Brit pop? I’ve seen a lot of this lately. Looks like UK nostalgia never died out.
I think I’ll get this from the library if they have it… I know nothing about this band.
Wow…you totally missed the boat on the Jane’s review…Claiming you were there to see the one song that was a commercial smash led me to discount your review immediately, but I read on to see if you redeemed yourself. Nope. Fans of the band would absolutely disagree with your take, as the band’s true genius was displayed over and over during the set, Perry’s prancing aside. He’s a consummate front-man, great voice, showmanship, and control of the spotlight.
And, yes, ugly girls DO have to be sluttier than the good-looking ones. Stick to reviewing bands you have a clue about.
You are, of course, referring to Alexander Mccall Smith’s series. There are so many witty observations in these books regarding male-female differences and the impact that these have on relationships.
Mma Ramotswe believes that women are best suited for detective work because women notice details, are observant, listen, and have more insight into human psychology than men.
Gives Thanks, Very fascinating read, you should be dramatic of your web logs. I’ve been genuinely delighting developing up your situations from meter to time. Looking forward to understand your future positions
Many wonderful selective information, thanks for partaking. Testament definitely be back more often….
i thought it was a good movie
This game looks just as terrible as the movie!
At first I thought Hester and Parks were just biting ‘Ghost Rider,” but I’ll have to check it out sometime.
They are COOL
wow! that was a lame review. I think they are great. Apparently thousands of others do too. They love them in Europe as well. U.S. is always the last to recognize real talent.
The looks very pretty :)
Thank you for the post and photo.
Agreed. This was a dope show. One of the better I’ve been to in ‘09. Check out their performance of “Jump In the Pool” from the show.

This high of a review score makes me question how you call yourself a journalist. I read the initial issue and it was utter trash with no redeeming value whatsoever. This title could have done for Greek mythology what Fables did for children’s stories and fictional characters. Instead the writer decided to go for the disgusting, unimaginative stories. I agree that Peter Milligan can be hit and miss in what he writes but this 1st issue made me want to throw up and regret spending $1.00 to give it a try. I have read Vertigo comics for about 10 years and this comic is truly the worst executed idea with no redeeming value I have ever had the misfortune to read.
I would’ve loved to see Henry Rollins. He cracks me up!
Thank you for your review. If this show was a decade earlier, I would’ve been there! Also, I empathize on your anger, when people leave before the show is “over” [the encore]. A band like MEW deserves an encore!
“Comforting Sounds” is awesome to hear live. My husband and I were privileged to see/hear them in D.C. a few years ago.
I love this show! Can’t wait untill next summer to pick up the New Shows.
Whats Fray for the uninitiated? A buffy spin off comic from a few years back, which I understand never got its story finished. So Joss has decedied to combine it with a buffy story to finish it.
So we have a back history a number of fans may be unaware of and time travel etc thrown in? sounds like an awful idea but it works excellently.
The art is by Korl Moline who i believe did the original Fray comic, he is fairly similar in style to Georges Jeanty who usually does the book so its all pretty familiar.
The story is complicated and takes a little while to see where it is going but the end result and character writing are excellent. Not a good starting point for new readers but a great read none the less.
I became interested in this topic and tried to find additional information. Much of it I downloaded from http://www.ebook-search-queen.com.
As I visited the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair it was interesting for me to read The Road to Woodstock (http://www.ebook-search-queen.com) and to compare its contents with what I saw. Great!
The overarching plot, revolving around the secrets buried underneath a clandestine basement, fares much better. Head writer, Matthew Sturges, is learning at a fast pace as the series[..]
Did anybody watch this film? Share your impressions, please.
Have you ever considered adding more videos to your blog posts to keep the readers more entertained? I mean I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since I’m more of a visual learner,I found that to be more helpful well let me know how it turns out! I love what you guys are always up too. Such clever work and reporting! Keep up the great works guys I’ve added you guys to my blogroll. This is a great article thanks for sharing this informative information.. I will visit your blog regularly for some latest post.
I’m in the middle of reading this book and was stoked to see it reviewed in one of my favorite mags. The review is pretty strait up, as is the book. Interesting for those who know about Steve Kilbey or not. For those who have been in or are in music groups, with it’s drama and challlenges, No Certainty Attached of particular interest.
“smashing success” = 6/10?
It’s a fine record, but not quite worthy of a 7 or 8, which are reserved for top twenty of the year candidates, which this honestly isn’t for me. But if you’re a fan of Polvo, you’ll like it, and even if you aren’t, it’s an excellent invitation to explore their great back catalog. And “smashing success” is removed from its context of “As far as unheralded reunions go,” as many are downright insipid, and this one is anything but that.
Who designed Stephanie’s Jacket in science of sleep and where can I get a similar coat?
Science of Sleep is a movie and her military jacket is cute
I concur my friend.
The hype machine sold Sweet Tooth #1. It was pretty good, but I’m hoping we’ll see a little more happening in issue #2.
Then again, I ought have a little more faith in Lemire, he’s pretty damned good.
Will there be a second season of the No 1 Ladies Detective agency?
find public record
Can’t wait until this year’s concert. Fantastic stuff. Sooo hot though. Bringing plenty of water this year
Ok this is by far the best series ive seen so far its got great story line, Animation, and good art work…. But one problem is the disc has trouble reading on a Xbox. I putted in the disc once and it worked 2nd time it got defective. Great series to watch a must see
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. It’s got a great soundtrack too: Jens Lekman, Tilly & the Wall, The Go! Team, Radiohead, and others.
wow, San Francisco’s Girls must have been very bad. It has been a while since I have read such a damning review of any band
Jenny Lewis is a babe. I also like the killers. I think they are class
The track wasn’t used and in fact went unheard for two-plus decades, but Gordon and Mingus occasionally unpacked it live. In any case, one can only hope that when Mingus finally flipped the calendar past the greatest year in jazz, dude hit the mattress for a well-deserved nap.
Great reviews. Loney Dear has been my favorite band because their music touched my soul and makes me feel good. Live they are incredible. I saw them in Fortaleza, Brazil, and I’ll remember that day for a long time.
I like bands what make good musics. And banana splitses.
Did UTR ever do a review of the Rhino San Francisco nuggets box set?
As a fan of the series who buys it month-to-month, I guess I’m biased in that I enjoyed it. I would be interested to see if non-Fables readers enjoyed it.
It’s great to see my favourite magazine cover my favourite comic. I check for a mention of it in every printed-issue of Under The Radar, and so far have only seen it in there this month!
Wow! Sounds like a fun show. Now if only we could get him to come out west…
mellow but good/interesting mellow, not boring mellow. also check out whitest boy alive (same singer)
Where can I buy waterproof trousers not over trousers?
who the hell says “blogosphere” anymore?
its a Grower not a Show - er!
I wish this had been posted earlier. They had a show where I live tonight, and I could have gone ... oh well.
This is a fantastic review. I’m one of those people that consumes all things Pearl Jam (50+ live shows). You nailed Backspacer perfectly. I want to tell you how great it is but it isn’t - it is a step in the right direction though. Nice job.
The overarching plot, revolving around the secrets buried underneath a clandestine basement, fares much better. Head writer,
