Metal Monday Volume 112 (3.4.13)

Metal Monday Volume 112 (3.4.13)

Oh my glob! When will you people start paying attention to the gloriousness that is vocalist Todd Smith and his cohort in crime Jasan Stepp?!? Knives Out! Dog Fashion Disco! Polkadot Cadaver! Jesus, people, they’re giving you oodles and oodles of metally goodness and you’re not paying attention! Anywho, Polkadot Cadaver is back with  a new album entitled Last Call In Jonestown and a new single/video of the same name. “Last Call In Jonestown” off the upcoming LP of the […]

The Carlton Shuffle, 3/2/13

The Carlton Shuffle, 3/2/13

I don’t know about y’all, but this has been a bear of a week. I’m just glad that I’ve got another edition of The Carlton Shuffle to help me unwind. Grab a beverage, kick back, and groove to what’s been in our ears this week.

David Bowie Shoots for the Moon in “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” Video

David Bowie Shoots for the Moon in “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” Video

In early January, we got the news from left field that David Bowie would be issuing his first album in a decade this Spring. My night owl lifestyle has paid off once again, as just moments ago Bowie’s YouTube channel posted a second video from the upcoming The Next Day LP. Whereas “Where Are We Now” harkened back to 1999′s …hours album (admittedly not one of my favorites), “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” is more in line with Bowie’s two most recent albums, Heathen and Reality. And of […]

Metal Monday Volume 111 (2.25.13)

Metal Monday Volume 111 (2.25.13)

In its’ third incarnation, Zozobra is essentially Cave In minus Stephen Brodsky and with bassist Caleb Scofield at the mic once again, there’s no doubt that it’s going to be absolutely brutal and visceral. From “Black Holes”, the first offering from Savage Masters (Due in April), it seems that Scofield is taking a cue from the heavier aspects of the latest Cave In and Old Man Gloom releases and just going for it full force. Guitarist Adam McGrath absolutely shreds […]

Implodes, “Scattered In The Wind”: The Singles Bar Review

Implodes, “Scattered In The Wind”: The Singles Bar Review

Chicago produces some great music and Implodes is a band that is only going to perpetuate that truth. On “Scattered In The Wind”, the first taste of the upcoming Recurring Dream album, Implodes deliver almost five and a half minutes of sonic bliss. Soaked in feedback and a heavy atmosphere that would make Ian Curtis jump back and scream: “Wow, that’s some dark shit!”, Implodes is stepping up their game considerably for their 2013 sophomore release. Recurring Dream will be […]

Note for Note: A Complete Guide to the Discography of New Order

Following the death of Ian Curtis, the remaining members of Joy Division decided to embark on an entirely new project, although it would take some time for the group to find its own voice. Formed in 1980, New Order augmented the trio of Sumner (guitar, vocals), Hook (bass), and Morris with keyboardist Gillian Gilbert (Morris’ then-girlfriend and now-wife).  The band went on to have a fairly prolific career, although the stream of releases slowed significantly by the mid- 1990s, partially […]

The Jukebox From Hell 14: “Crazy B*tch”

The Jukebox From Hell 14: “Crazy B*tch”

As we at Popblerd passed around the latest list of new releases to divvy up albums for review, one particular album stood out like a sore thumb: Buckcherry, the band you’d always hoped was dead, is gearing up to release a new record. This is a moderately startling development, precisely because it’s not that startling: as we all know, rare is the past-its-prime band that has the self-awareness and decency to call it a day when they cease to be […]

Paramore Gets Their Sci-Fi On With “Now” Video

Paramore Gets Their Sci-Fi On With “Now” Video

Seems like it’s been an eternity since Paramore released anything. A quick look at Wikipedia reveals that the release date of their last album was 2009. So, yeah…an eternity. And Paramore doesn’t seem like one of those bands that can successfully return from a four-year layoff (translation: their fans are still likely maturing in musical taste and in all likelihood are listening to something else now.) Nevertheless, Hayley Williams and her rotating cast of sidemen have returned with a self-titled […]
