GØGGS: Pre-Strike Sweep [Album Review]

GØGGS Pre-Strike Sweep In The Red [2018] Who: Ty Segall, Charles Moothart (Fuzz, CFM) and Chris Shaw (Ex-Cult) record another rousing fuzz punk record. Sound: GØGGS’ second release proves they are no fluke. Pre-Strike Sweep is a force to be reckoned with. TFN Final Take: I am not a huge Ty Segall fan by any means, I have a few of his albums and have followed a few of his side projects with moderate but never rabid interest. I waded...

Patsy Moore What Surprises Us Papa Chuy [2018] Fire Note Says: Patsy Moore brings a very special voice forward on her indie label, Papa Chuy, creating piano-based pop balladry with smart augmentation from African percussive polyrhythms, soulfulness with jazz instincts and artful orchestration that recalls the work of Joni Mitchell.

Wild Nothing: Indigo [Album Review]

Wild Nothing Indigo Captured Tracks [2018] Fire Note Says: Wild Nothing is less chill and better for it.

Each release has gradually moved away from that sound, ultimately giving Indigo a surprising sense of urgency and burst of energy. It’s a...
