Eels / Chelsea Wolfe. Gothic Theatre. 05.21.14

Say what you will about Mark Oliver Everett, the guy is consistent. No matter how bright the sun might shine, Everett will escape to the darkest shadow of doubt – never believing that everything might actually turn out alright in the long run. It’s only been a year since he released Wonderful, Glorious to...

Class of 2013: The Overachievers

Class of 2013: The Overachievers

2013 was a great year in music. I’d argue it was among the best in the past 10 years. The diversity among the overachievers was remarkable. Representative artists from hip-hop, pop, rock, metal, hardcore and electronic music all brought their best to the table, but it was those albums that obliterated genre definitions that...

‘felt like a solid ghost’

October 7, 2013
RFBFE

Back in December of last year I threatened to shut down this blog, or give it a break at the very least, and although certain aspects of life have gotten in the way of regular updates, I have somehow found time to keep it alive. I might not go to quite as many shows...

Chelsea Wolfe. Larimer Lounge. 09.24.13

Chelsea Wolfe. Larimer Lounge. 09.24.13

Stability and contentment have never been easy for me. Staying in one place for too long would cause the air to turn stale — my senses would stagnate and I would feel as though I was drowning in a sea of apathy. The only cure for this state would be a major decision, even if...

‘along the street lately the stories are bound’

Q113

As I mentioned back in December, the time I have available to dedicate to this blog has become less than years past. A new job and other real-life responsibilities have taken precedence over my daily ingest of music and pop culture. I have been working long (full) days for the past few months, and although...

2011-Performers

I’m fairly certain I attended my final show of 2012 last night.  It was a year of over 200 acts at over 50 shows and 5 festivals in 3 countries and 6 states — and it all comes down to these 15 most memorable moments. * Alabama Shakes 02.04.12 Fox Theatre, Boulder, CO Brittany...

notes from the coast: Wolves in the Throne Room.  Chelsea Wolfe.  Echoplex. 01.26.12

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll already know we’re big fans of Chelsea Wolfe and Wolves in the Throne Room. Both acts topped most of our lists last year in almost every category. So it’s with extreme jealously that I present Genji’s review of the joint bill at Echoplex last Thursday night. There’s a...

CHELSEA WOLFE, WHITE HORSE, PAC & BIG

CHELSEA WOLFE, WHITE HORSE, PAC & BIG

I am literally running out the door to catch a flight to San Francisco, but couldn’t help sharing the latest from the Chelsea Wolfe camp.   A few days ago Chelsea tweeted that she was ‘living inside an XXL biggie smalls t-shirt‘.  What seemed an odd statement at the time now makes sense.   Full time...

Class of 2011: The Soundtrack

ILSUDH2 still prefers to listen to albums in their entirety, which makes it very hard to put together a list of ‘best tracks’ at the end of each year.  This year was no exception.  Therefore, what follows is a massive soundtrack to the reality show known as 2011.  To say these songs represent the...

Class of 2011: The Overachievers

There were countless releases in 2011 and ILSUDH2 got through over 600 of them.  Although it was very hard to decide what would make the list in this uneven year of music, these are the albums that defined 2011 for this blog. In order to give a clear picture of the past year, this...
