Best Music of 2012: The year the world wouldn't end

Best Music of 2012: The year the world wouldn't end
For a few weeks now I’ve been having the same debate with a good friend (I think we’re still friends) over what should be the Album of the Year for 2012. It’s a toss-up between two bands — we agree they’re both phenomenal – but he says I’m crazy for picking the one I’m about to over... Read more »

Soundtrack A Surgery

Soundtrack A Surgery
Hello, friends. This is a scheduled post, as I am having surgery today. Probably right now. It’s on my right hip, much like the one I had on the left side back in February. What I was diagnosed with is Avascular Necrosis — basically, the hip joint bone slowly becomes not-round-anymore, and flattens-out at the... Read more »

Hot Chip’s In Our Heads and album reviews you don’t need

Hot Chip’s In Our Heads and album reviews you don’t need
Writing music reviews is weird business. Often you know what you’re going to get when you read a particular guy (or listen to a particular band). Some people are looking for new music. Some don’t wanna hear what you have to say about their favorite band. What critics do from their various papers, websites and... Read more »

What new album will soundtrack your summer 2012?

What new album will soundtrack your summer 2012?
Summer is an exceptionally good time to rock new music. We’re outside mowing our lawns, dodging bird dung, in cars watching the corn go by, walking dogs, cats, lizards and generally out of our dusty homes, away from the flickering boobs on the tube. Sure, half our collective minds may be on the big new... Read more »

Hot Chip preview June release with "Flutes"

Boy, Hot Chip are hitting their stride. Not only are all members engaged in side-projects (The 2 Bears, New Build), but together they’re releasing an album promptly every two years. I love it when a band seems to be as excited about music as I am. If you click on the large words above these... Read more »

Side Projects Week continues with Pete International Airport

It’s Side Projects Week here in the Jam Room. The obvious question might be — why do all rockers have side projects? If you know any musicians, you know that they’re all wickedly weird, they all have ideas and they’re usually building them in the attic whether you like it or not. When musicians gather...

The 2 Bears - Work

A fold in my brain that has grown exponentially over the past decade has been the one that’s in love with electronic jamming. If you’ve listened to me rant for any length of time (thanks, and) you’ve no doubt heard the names LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip fly by. I can probably give a special... Read more »

Have you met Hot Chip? Guys, Hot Chip.. Hot Chip, guys. They put out this pretty tight little album (their fourth) called One Life Stand in 2010 and I still can’t get some of these songs out of my head. Hot Chip takes keys, samples and a bevy of percussives and makes rock danceable again... Read more »
