Parkay Quarts Announce New Album ‘Content Nausea,’ Stream New Song

Parquet Courts are back with a new release, and they’re changing things up along with it. The Queens, NY indie punk four piece have undergone a homophonic name shift to Parkay Quarts to coincide with one member completing a degree in mathematics and another starting a family, seeing Andrew Savage and Austin Brown work alongside two friends (Jackie-O Motherf*cker’s Jef Brown on Saxaphone and Eaters’ Bob Jones on fiddle) in their place.

The release, titled Content Nausea, is a 12-track LP that clocks in at 35 minutes and is Parkay Quarts’ second release of 2014. As such, it dials …

Holy shit. We have a hit on our hands.

Big K.R.I.T. has been teasing the release of Cadillactica for the majority of 2014, and early this morning we finally learned when that highly-anticipated record will arrive in stores.

Set for a November 11 release, Cadillactica will almost certainly be one of the most discussed hip-hop releases of the year. K.R.I.T. topped many ‘best of’ lists in 2013, so all eyes are on the young emcee to prove his staying power in this incredibly fickle industry. To get fans hyped, the record’s title track has been made available for streaming, and …

After several months spent working on his debut album, Mod Sun has broke his public silence with a series of major news announcements.

The man behind hippie-hop revealed to fans this week that he has formed an alliance with the good people at Rostrum Records. This is different than a record deal, but will include music distribution in hopes of helping expand Mod’s unique brand of music.

Deep underneath their acoustic strumming and boot-stomping beats is heartfelt songwriting that’s seen more revisions than a dozen hands can count. The three men craft songs that lay comfortably between Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes on songs like “Yours to Shake” and “Another.” Thanks to help from …

REVIEW: Gerard Way – ‘Hesitant Alien’

Artist: Gerard Way
Album: Hesitant Alien
Genre: Brit-Pop / Shoegaze
Label: Reprise Records

For certain people, there are always going to be artists who they check out no matter what type of project their name is attached to. For myself, Gerard Way is a name that I’m always going to pay attention to, no matter if he’s making music under My Chemical Romance, drawing something for DC Comics, or in this specific review’s case, making a Brit-Pop record. Here’s the thing: I’m not a huge Brit-Pop fan. It’s never been a genre that I’ve ever latched onto for whatever reason, …
