[CMJ]: TOPS @ Arlene’s Grocery (October 18, 2013)

By Will Oliver, October 21st 2013


Last year, Montreal band TOPS released one of my favorite albums of the year with the dangerously good Tender Opposites.

I kept missing them at previous CMJ’s or the scattered NYC performance here and there. So I made it a mission this time around to catch one of their performances, and it ended up being post-Arcade Fire at Arlene’s Grocery as a part of the M For Montreal showcase. Read the rest of this entry »

[music video]: TOPS – Double Vision

By Will Oliver, October 25th 2012

Regret not catching TOPS at all during CMJ, because I’ve been slowly getting into their debut album Tender Opposites, which came out earlier this year on Arbutus Records.

They released a video for “Double Vision” a song on the album that clings to nostalgia and memories of older days. It then makes sense that the video consists of home video recordings. Wish I didn’t wait so long to get into these guys.

Watch the video below.

[music video] All The Damn Kids – The Book Stops Here

By Will Oliver, April 23rd 2010 — with 3 comments

I called All The Damn Kids a band to watch last week, and I firmly stand behind that statement. They are an exciting band from Sheffield who you should expect to hear more on frm me in the immediate future.

For now, check out their music video for “The Book Stops Here”. It is pretty much a nod to the legendary Albert Lamorisse short film Le Ballon Rouge. It is well shot, and the video certainly fits the mood of the song. Watch it below:

ITAL played The Orange Peel which is on tops of lists as an incredible venue in our country. He got Saturday’s party started and got the crowd moving and prepared us for what was ahead for the evening.

Interview: Arctic Monkeys’ Bassist Nick O’Malley

By Will Oliver, September 30th 2013 — with 2 comments

When I started this blog 5 years ago, I never expected it to take me to the places that it has. If you told me I would have a chance to interview a member of my favorite band, Arctic Monkeys, I would have called you crazy. But last week, the stars aligned and I was allowed to chat with Arctic Monkeys bassist Nick O’Malley over the phone. Even though he had to prepare for the band’s show last night in Oakland, he made time for me and we had a great chat.

We talked about their most recent show in New York City, his favorite song on AM, how they ended up cover Drake, and what goes into picking songs during a live show. Nick was an absolute pleasure to speak to, and I consider myself lucky to have had some time to talk with him.

Today’s my birthday, and I can’t think of any better gift that to share an interview that I did with a member of this band. It’s truly an honor. With that said, enjoy the interview below.

2013 continues to be the year that just keeps on giving. Cut Copy have surprised me with their announcement that they will release a new album this year. It’s called Free Your Mind, and will come out on November 5 via Loma Vista/Modular.

Along with the news came the release of the title track as a stream. There’s a very late 80′s Manchester-style rock vibe going on here, with some trippy psychadelic elements that we’ve seen the band playing with as of late. It’s still very much Cut Copy, with their signature “oohs” and feel good dance celebration tactics.

I thought we would get a new Cut Copy album next year. The fact that it’s coming out this year during the holiday season is a glorious thing, certainly worth celebrating. All the new songs I heard at Governors Ball sounded tremendous.

Earlier during the summer they shared another new song with us called “Let Me Show You How.” That is now titled “Let Me Show You Love” and is on the new album. The LP was recorded in their hometown of Melbourne, Australia, and was produced by lead singer, Dan Whitford.

Check out “Free Your Mind” below, along with the album’s tracklisting.
