Did you miss Pelican as much as I did? As much of a fan as I was of last year’s Ataraxia/Taraxis EP I’d rather a full-length so the announcement of Forever Becoming being released, Pelican’s fifth full-length, definitely caused some dancing around the Popblerd offices (On my part at least). Speaking of the EP, it was a great indicator of what was coming as Forever Becoming is all around a little looser production-wise (With What We All Come To Need’s [...]
It’s New Release Tuesday! No, it’s Monday. Why is there a New Release Report out on a Monday?!?! JT has an album out and he deemed Monday was the day it was going to be released? Oh, okay. That makes sense then. So yeah, here we are on a Monday talking about some new releases because Justin Timberlake has that kind of power and, frankly, who are we to argue? The second half of The 20/20 Experience hits today (Appropriately [...]
Hiatus be damned! We are back, baby! In week two of WWFC we’re checking out the premiere of Marvel Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and letting you know if the comic giants first foray into network television demands a return visit. First, the bad: -The score is over”Bear”ing (Yep, I went there). I know this shouldn’t be an issue but as a film music nerd (and major) it’s really in your face during the pilot. Bear Mccreary (Eureka, BS:G, The Walking Dead) [...]
The 4 1/2 Mikes (minus the half) get into the time machine and head back into the nine-trey for their latest podcast…whoomp, there it is!
Antlered Man preview their upcoming October release with a heavy new track called “GDZ” and Popblerd has your review!
“Californyeah” is already an incredible song. Now it’s an incredible video. Popblerd has the deets.
On their second album, Sweden’s Holograms spearhead a new wave of post punk revivalism with an album that’s a more focused affair then the still equally brilliant Holograms. Forever drops barely a year after their debut made waves and unlike most expedited sophomore albums, this one doesn’t suffer from the “Quick! We have to get a new album out” syndrome. There is absolutely no other band making music like this today. If you combined the gothic overtones of The Cure’s [...]
Welcome to another new column I will attempt to write on a weekly basis (If you’re keeping count, that makes three total!). I have been into comics longer than I’ve been into music (Going on 30 years now) so this is a no-brainer for me. Going forward, we’ll have some chats about the latest comic news and maybe a review or two on singles issues (like today) or hot trade paperbacks. Maybe I’ll rant about my hatred of the Spider-Man [...]
