Indie Rock Bad

Best of 2014 Pick 9

Traams: Cissa (FatCat Records, 2014)

18 minutes of sharp, melodic, brisk Brit rock.  Classic drums, bass, guitar, vocal alignment — I was particularly impressed by the melodic bass playing and the driving drums although there is strong musicianship at all points. 36 more words

Lana Del Rey -- mediocre musician/dick straightening magician!

From the Daily Beast:

Lana Del Rey and her brand management team are blazing trails in public relations and cultural studies.

If it’s true that Lana Del Rey can make a gay man straight, wouldn’t you think she would become a massive hit/go to artist for the reborn Christian gay hating crowd? 38 more words
