 - The Other Side of Make-Believe
60
If you like Interpol, you'll love The Other Side of Make-Believe. If you don't, this probably won't make you.

Imitation, they say, is the sincerest form of flattery. Nowhere is this maxim more accurate than in the field of what is colloquially known as "popular music."

Musicians will manifest their influences consciously or unconsciously in their music, and seldom does the musical apple fall far from the tree.

 - Cave World

Conjurer took the COVID-19 pause to come together and record Páthos, their second full-length album, and first coming from the reliable Nuclear Blast label.

 - Versions of Modern Performance

Chicago’s own Horsegirl (Nora Cheng, guitar and vocals – Penelope Lowenstein, guitar and vocals – Gigi Reece, drums) have released their long-anticipated debut full-length recording, “Versions of Modern Performance”.

In November of 2021, they released a single from this compilation, “Billy” that found it’s way to Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of “Songs You Need to Know”.

But the question remains…does the album live up ... read more
