By REYAN ALI  |  April 2, 2010

Velazquez does drop a potentially alarming bit of info. Having shared the unmixed album with his dad, the guitarist received this feedback: “You can play it on the radio, cool. You can actually hear what’s going on!” The idea of this ebullient, DIY-bred, oddball act cleaning up its wonderful mess is a jarring, deflating notion. Fingers crossed that even if Abe Vigoda follow their tourmates onto the airwaves this year, they’ll keep things sufficiently weird.

    Jeremiah Fraites isn't famous — at least not yet. The drummer of the Lumineers, the folk trio who experienced an outrageously fruitful 2012, is talking to me two days before appearing on the January 19 Saturday Night Live, but he doesn't sound convinced that his band have crossed the fame threshold.
  •   PHANTOM GLUE COME INTO FOCUS  |  January 23, 2013
    Variations of "nightmarish" and "psychedelic" come up repeatedly as Matt Oates describes his band's work — which makes sense, given that Phantom Glue trace their roots back to Slayer, the Jesus Lizard, and cult post-hardcore act KARP.
