More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks: The Horror

I made a mix for myself to listen to on the bus ride from Baltimore to Pennsylvania. It's composed mostly of songs that I was either digging at the time or singles/albums that I'd recently picked up. There's a pretty respectable hip-hop side. ... But there's also an unfortunate alternative side that hasn't aged nearly as well. ... »»

More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks – My Week in Music

First off, let me say that my Jay-Z album cover theory was flawed. I guess technically it's still sound, since, while you can't see his eyes on the cover of The Blueprint 3, you can't see him at all, so it's sort of outside the scope of my theory. ... »»

Virgin Music Festival 2008 LIVE COVERAGE: Foo-Fest!

The Foo Fighters returned to Toronto on Saturday night and rocked the Island in true Foo fashion. The band headlined the third installment of the Virgin Music Festival in Toronto and played a set that lasted over an hour, mixing old hits with new tunes. Frontman Dave Grohl proved that he was the evening's best showman by teasing and taunting the crowd by jokingly mocking their singing abilities. »»

More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks - Snubs, Part II

In the first part of this feature, I pointed out a group of hip-hop artists who were unfairly snubbed from Entertainment Weekly's recent "New Classics" list. But rappers weren't the only only artists who were inexplicably left off of the list, as I'll be venturing outside the genre for round of snubs. »»

MGF Reviews Supergrass - Diamond Hoo Ha

Supergrass caught me off guard; I knew the name but I couldn't swear in a court of law that I've ever heard them before. Imagine my surprise when Diamond Hoo Ha turned out to be a riff-driven and melody-rich trash-rock gem. ... »»

More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks – iPoorly Planned

Had I have known that I was going to be stuck with the same 1,153 tracks for a month, I would have been a little more discriminating. Way back, as April was drawing to a close, I casually synced my iPod to my computer. It's the type of thing that I do all the time. The music on my iPod is pretty fluid, as there's always new stuff coming and old stuff leaving. My mood is constantly changing; thus, the music I want as my soundtrack is in an equal state of shift. »»

MGF Reviews Local H - Twelve Angry Months

Local H may not be the same band that crafted one of the best, and possibly most underrated albums of the mid-'90s in As Good As Dead, but with Twelve Angry Months, Scott Lucas, the mastermind behind the band, shows he still has what it takes to create twisted-yet-subtle alternative rock music that can be thought-provoking and explosive. ... »»

More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks - Departure

So, just under two months ago I had a pretty bad break-up. The roommate and I went out separate ways. We'd lived together for over five years, in two different states and three different domiciles. Now, most of you probably don't really care (though I can think of one person reading this who's crying his eyes out). And I'll admit that I'm not really all that heartbroken about it. Without getting into specifics, there was a third party involved and things had been brewing for a while. I'll freely admit that I'm not 100% in the right, but I'm also not the thing keeping us from being friends. And sure, I miss her friendship. And I'd really like the hundreds of dollars that she owes me. But what I really want are the CDs that she borrowed and never returned. Here they are in the order in which they were borrowed... »»

Short Attention Span Theater

Come inside, come inside. There's some musical philosophy, a review of a free EP, a rant against posers, fun, frivolity, and a whole heaping helping of snark. Poppin' Off on the Top This week's Top 10 Hot Modern Rock Singles, as per Billboard.com: 1. Foo Fighters, "Long Road to Ruin" Not to offend all the Grohl Trolls out there, but I keep wanting to be as impressed by the Foos as everyone else seems to be and I'm still not getting it. I loved the first album when it came out; I was too young and stupid to realize I was listening to Nirvana's reject bin. Every album since then, they've delved more and more into power pop to the point that I'm a little embarrassed to call them "rock" anymore. Dave is a talented songwriter and musician, and his side projects rarely if ever miss. His voice, though, is just too soothing and sedate to do justice to the songs he's writing. If "Long Road to Ruin" was made by Maroon 5 or someone rather than a band that everyone already respects, it would be written off as the lightweight trifle that it really is. »»
