Hanni El Khatib, Bass Drum of Death The Casbah, San Diego 10/23/13 Words by Thirst'n Howl III How much better is a double double cheeseburger from In-n-Out than just a plain cheeseburger? I would say at...
I never thought it was possible to be pulled violently into an infinite darkness while being lifted into an expansive elation simultaneously. Apparently it is. The convulsive performance of Crystal Castles...

In this, our final Franz Nicolay Video Tour Blog, the band tries their best not to get emotional at the majesty of Niagara Falls, get trampled by pugs, spend the night in their own beds, and the top it all off with a live performance of their song "Z for Zachariah"!
The entire show was a family affair. Azure Ray’s, Maria Taylor, brought her younger sister, Kim Taylor and Kim’s husband Taylor Hollingsworth, to open the show. Sounding like a modern day Johnny Cash and June Carter, the audience enjoyed the folk-inspired musical stylings of the duo.
It's been years since The Juliana Theory broke up. During the long hiatus fans have been waiting for a new offering from lead singer Brett Detar, but something deep down inside me sure is a thinkin' they won't be expecting the songs that compromise Bird In The Tangle to have musically taken such a direction as this.

Everything about these songs are near perfect, I could see anyone enjoying this album from indie snobs to full blown country addicts.
