Come Back Record

permafrost154

I recall being excited about Wire's 1987 return after a 7 year hiatus, bought this record asap and saw them when they toured it. But when it comes to 80s Wire, there are better examples. Ahead is a Wire classic well worth downloading - go from there.

Who Are…Ruby Pins

By Tobi Vail, Contributor

Ruby Pins is the recording alias of Lillian Maring, best known as the drummer from Grass Widow. On her debut for Portland label M'lady's Records, she layers her voice and instruments with effects, creating a magical, psychedelic backdrop over which she unleashes personal angst and articulates her politics using humor and vivid, nuanced storytelling. The record is an introspective masterpiece that also manages to feel whimsical and free. Maring's lyrics capture the chaos, absurdity and… more »

Who Are…Parquet Courts

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

One of the most thrilling debuts of the year, Parquet Courts' Light Up Gold goes back to the first principles of punk that get forgotten every so often: speed, precision, brains and attitude.

Like other buzzy Bay Area bands, Fortune and her supporting players prove that punk and pop can still come together without going corporate. eMusic's Barry… more »

Icon: Wire

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

One way of describing Wire is to say that they've effectively been three different bands with (mostly) the same lineup: the blazing art-punk mutants of their 1976-80 incarnation, the monomaniacal electro-brainiacs of their 1985-91 renaissance, and the burly time-warping professors that reconvened in 2000 and are still recording now. Another way is to say that every record they've made has sounded like a hard-won consensus. Singer/guitarist Colin Newman, initially the band's voice of punk rock… more »
