#tbt Violent Femmes / Violent Femmes (1983)
What started out as a joke name, their self-titled debut is their most popular record, achieving gold and platinum status before even reaching Billboard album charts. Gano’s deadpan vocals complimented the natural punky style the band came to rest upon, delivering infectious vocal melodies simultaneously brimming with confidence and insecurity.
#tbt Beatles / The White Album (1968)
I know what you’re thinking, not another Beatles “Remaster” re-release, with promises of new demos and remixed tracks. And while an average fan might not notice or care for the subtle differences in the new mix, when compared with the original remaster, the change is undeniable.
Kubrick or Lynch? A Conversation with BRONCHO
Ah, Pitchfork Festival. This is our favorite fest – it books many of the bands that speak to us the most. I have to admit, I was slow for press bookings this year…I did not secure many interviews, but the one I did get…. boy it was a good one. One of my favorite bands as of late, BRONCHO, was playing an aftershow at Subterranean.
