Let The Great Experiment Begin: Music Condoms!

Written by Nick Leitzke
We take many things in life for granted. An endless supply of essentials seems to surround us. We will never deplete the resources that are necessary for our survival, and we can live our lives knowing that everything is in the black. My car is always on …

Something Old, Something New, Two Reviews for the Price of One: Wolf Parade and Arcade Fire

Written by Nick Leitzke
2004 and 2005 were big years for music. Both years saw the release of any number of albums that I return to over and over again. I try not to let my musical tastes be defined by a few albums or a few bands, but it’s hard …

Vibrations In The Air: Summer Mixtape 2010

Written by Nick Leitzke
With one more month of unbearable humidity ahead of us and nearly two months of rest and relaxation behind us it is time to look back and reflect. Although truth be told my summer hasn’t borne much rest and relaxation. It was Homer Simpson who said, “When …

First and foremost, for the band and for those of us who may have heard the wrong thing, I believe the gentleman in the crowd shouted, “We were better last time,” not, “You were better last time.” I will touch on this later, but I wanted to …

Spring. Rebirth. Rejuvenation. Thawing light at the end of an especially frosty tunnel these past few months. The strength of a good mix comes not from including songs you love but from listening to each song and understanding what needs to come next. A …

Album Review: Besnard Lakes – The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night

Written by Nick Leitzke
On March 9 the Besnard Lakes release their third album, ‘The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night.’ A benefit of pre-ordering albums is the free digital download, and I have been listening to ‘The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night’ so much that I can’t remember when …

Brevity is not just the soul of wit. It is an indication that in as few words as possible you can wrap up an entire night’s worth of experiences, emotions, and memories, and in those few words you say all that needs to be said. Brevity is …

Sex, Drugs, and… overdose: Jay Reatard Is Dead, And For What?

Written by Nick Leitzke
I hate drugs. Trading clarity and cohesion for a few moments of hallucinatory gratification – and risking life and limb in the process – is a deal I’d rather not make. I don’t particularly want to get hooked on something that in all likelihood will kill me, …

Album Review: Delphic – Acolyte

Written by Nick Leitzke
This is where I first heard Delphic…
