The Tough Crowd: Meeting Mr. Liebling

By Christina Kelly

On Saturday I met a real life rock star. A 70’s icon decked out with big long hair, tight jeans and his mother’s blouse. I (and all of my friends) met Bobby Leibling, vocalist of the legendary doom metal band Pentagram. I experienced the whole nine yards: the backstage shenanigans, the sound check, the horrified look on my club advisor’s face. All were priceless memories I will cherish forever.

I was watching the documentary Breadcrumb Trails on the making of Slint’s Spiderland (I can’t recommend either highly enough) and I was totally immersed in the story of these off-the-wall teenagers making music unlike anything before (and pretty much after).

An amalgamation of music genres by musicians isn’t all that uncommon these days. You even have new genres arising from time to time (PBR&B, Chillwave, Slowcore) to add to the confusion when trying to place a finger on someone’s brand of music.

These five songs never fail to cheer me up when I feel down. These songs do just the trick whenever I run into a rough patch with work, school, or the numinous transcendent terrors that rend at the frail soul beneath this meat-wall of sinews and corpuscles.

By Anna Zipkin

Raggedy, full-grown beard: check. Loose fitting, probably vintage flannel: check. Greasy, lion’s mane hair: check. What more could you ask for from a three-piece, indie rock band? Well, besides a hardcore drumbeat to make you jump repeatedly and buzzing guitar melodies to make your ears ring, probably nothing. This past Wednesday night, Ohio based band, Cloud Nothings, proved their indie rock status at D.C.’s Black Cat nightclub and did not fall short of igniting a head-bopping, intensely energetic fueled atmosphere for the crowd.

I don’t think there’s anything greater than an ethereal songstress, strumming softly on her guitar while wheezing haunting lyrics. This, dear friends, is Angel Olsen in a phrase.

As soon as Little Simz‘s latest mixtape “Blank Canvas” was featured on JAY Z’s Life&Times website, everyone wanted to know about the 19-year-old British rapper. Though she has released music before 2013, Little Simz has been getting more exposure just this past year for her more concise sound and effortless flow.

By Jesse Paller

Last week’s pick, Dilute’s second album, was a piece of beauty that embodied rain in its sound as well as its abstract emotion. This week’s Rainy Day Album does away with the abstract and goes straight for the emotion: Hospice by the Antlers. Thanks to our Promo Director Maeve McDermott for this pick.
