If you like it, please go buy it.
Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.
Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

I promise to listen to everything, but due to the large amount of material I receive, I can not guarantee review. Thanks!

The latest release from the Locust cannon (Locust 76) is the LP, The Secret Miracle Fountain, by Function. Based on the tracks I've heard from the release, this is a must own. Function is the communally based band headed up by Australian native Matt Nicholson. The Secret Miracle Fountain is a "lush & transcendental rock album" recorded in over 10 countries during a 3 1/2 year period. Ambient sounds mixed with subtle vocals makes for a nice blend of other-worldy folkish post-rock that feels so organic it hurts. Function is definitely a band to keep your eye on.

i heard this on the radio last week and immediately picked it up. It's dense and quite the marathon but there isn't a moment where I don't feel like I'm being elevated out of my element. Beautiful is too cheap a word to describe this record. I heard they are playing in the North East so hopefully they'll come to Boston.
