Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » An Honest-to-God Review

I know, as shocking as this, it’s a real review of the White Rabbits show last night. Brace yourself. It’s not often a band can fool you into thinking their penultimate night of touring is actually their first night of touring. But given the amount of energy the White Rabbits had last night (about the […]

Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » Radio, Radio

Author’s Note: All apologies for the possibly poor quality of this entry. My brain is mush, but if I don’t write this now, I never will. “Hi, this Nora (My last name) calling on behalf of Gloria Minott at WPFW…” “News/Public Affairs Nora (my last name) speaking…” Around the same time I really started getting […]

Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » Music Critics

Music critics are some of the most pretentious pricks known to man. Here is my reasoning: In effort to broaden my horizons while also following the rules of the radio station, I’ve decided to feature one new album a week. For this week I was thinking of featuring Los Campesinos! who are a Welsh band […]

Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » Panic (!) at the Disco

This past summer I giddily read that Panic! at the Disco was no more. Of course the writer’s at Drowned in Sound were just playing with my mind and the band had merely gotten rid of the exclamation point and had not, as I thought, disbanded. Little less than six months later here I am, […]

Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » Soul Revival

There is currently something of a soul revival occurring in the UK right now. Granted this statement is based on data from the imperfect British singles/album chart(s) and only based on this weeks charts. Also I’m basing most of the above statement on the popularity of exactly two artists who fit the classic description of […]

Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » Kinksian

There’s this neat little thing you can do in Microsoft word that’s called “autosummarize.” This nifty little gadget will take the seven-page research paper you’ve written on the Kinks and summarize the thing to your specifications. For instance you can ask the auto summarizer to summarize said paper to less than 500 words and it […]

Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » Festival Season

This past week celebrated the beginning of festival season. Yes folks, this past week/end was South by South West or, as it’s lovingly called, SXSW (which translates to the first name given, which is what everyone says when referring to the second.) Anyone who is anyone, or wants to be anyone, in the indie music […]

Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » Cancellation

In the past few months I’ve rarely concerned myself with the deeds and don’ts of the music industry. I’ve had more important things to deal with, mainly doing well in my classes and trying not to have a melt down. In fact it would take something pretty horrendous (or KC doing anything) for me to […]

Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » Etymology

I was listening to the Proclaimers “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” and I heard a word that I didn’t recognize. I assumed I had misheard the word and so I looked up the lyrics. Here’s the verse and more specifically the couplet I’m referring to: And if I haver yeah I know I’m gonna be […]

Anglo-Audiophile: The Reviews » Oscars > the Grammys

I would like to, very calmly, report that ONCE won an Oscar award last night for Best Song. It beat out three songs from Enchanted and one song from August Rush. Congratulations to Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova for their amazing work and this absolutely brilliant win. I think this makes up for the loss […]
