With David finally out, a new question pops up: what the hell is Fucked Up's next move? A one-track drone record? Free jazz? Abraham doesn't have any answers, especially since he's toyed with the possibility of leaving Fucked Up once David came to life. "I wouldn't be surprised if this was my last full LP with the band," he says. "As you say, 'What are you going to do?' You can't really tone it down from doing a rock opera concept record thing. You've got to keep swinging for the fences each time. I'm very happy with this record right now. That's why I think we should let this be the swan song for this era of the band and hopefully transition into something else."

  •   WILD BELLE PUSH MAGICAL BUTTONS  |  February 11, 2013
    Wild Belle's multi-ethnic allegiances — Afropop, reggae, and rocksteady — fuse into American indie-pop and classic rock. Results are, at varying times, tropical, tepid, and tempestuous.
  •   THE LUMINEERS AIM FOR THE RAFTERS  |  February 01, 2013
    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.
