Thankfully there are still bands around that refuse to be defined by any one genre. On Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words With Tones), Intronaut proves that they are defiantly one of those bands. Despite mixing genres effortlessly with some metal here, classic rock there, jazz over there, and a little prog for good measure here, Intronaut’s music never sees the band being anything if not consistent. Opening with “Killing Birds With Stones” and a killer riff that menaces immediately Intronaut quickly […]
Apparently, motherhood has not made Beyonce soft.
Easily one of my most anticipated 2013 releases, Filter blasts back after an almost three year absence with a song that brings the heavy and surprisingly, the electronic aspects of the band back to the forefront. On “We Hate It When You Get What You Want”, there’s a synthetic thump to ease listeners back in until the guitars just explode along with Richard Patrick’s raspy howl bellowing yet another brilliant chorus. If this is any indication of what the rest […]
Five years! Longer than many marriages, yet Popdose is still here and still going.
Who needs any stinkin’ Crosby, Stills or Nash??
Thom Yorke steps away from Radiohead…but does he sound any different?
Raine Maida is back with his sophomore solo release, We All Get Lighter, slated for release on March 26th and recently chatted with Popblerd via phone about what fans can expect from the upcoming record. Seeing that We All Get Lighter is significantly different in tone than Pachamama’s I & II, how are the two EP’s and album all tied together if at all? The EP’s are just kind of fun. It was just stuff that I was doing whenever […]
There’s always that one song on an album that doesn’t get its just due. This column is devoted to those songs.
P-Funk. Uncut funk. The bomb. We can’t have a best albums of the ’70s list without ’em.
Matt Nathanson returns with a brand new song. Give it a listen here!
When David Bowie released his previous album, Reality: Senator John Kerry was challenging incumbent George W. Bush for the presidency; Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube didn’t exist; The war in Iraq was but six months old; Michael Jackson was alive; So were Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein; TV broadcast signals were transmitted through the airwaves; Eminem won an Oscar for 8 Mile. It seems like a long time ago in a pop culture far, far away. And in some senses, […]
Will the second installment of our list of the ’70s best albums leave your knickers in a bunch? Don’t worry, the Popblerd team won’t take you on the highway to hell!

Some new sounds for all you Bostonites.
You’ll be seeing a lot of these two men over the next few days-check out the beginning of our list of the top 100 albums of the Seventies!
Calling Clutch’s latest album, Earth Rocker, the best album of their career and hands down the best rawk record of 2013 would at first seem to be a disservice to their peers in the genre who have yet to release albums this year. Then again when it comes to Clutch, genres are a moot point as the sounds this band creates is unparallelled. Take the first track “Earth Rocker” for what it is: a tease. Yeah, it’s great. It’s grandiose. […]
Hello, Mr. Jones. We’ve been expecting you.
