Whew! What a weekend. Wait, was it what a weekend? I don't even remember what I did Friday night! I know I worked late…but after that…Oh, right, I stayed in. That wasn't at all exciting, was it? And last night I went across town to cash in on a dinner bet and hang out in [...]
Esmerine... "New" is a bit of an elongation of the truth seeing as their first record was released back in 2003, but the three-letter word describes my recent relationship with Esmerine just right. Formed by (now former) members of both Godspeed You! Black Emperor ( Bruce Cawdron ) and Thee Silver Mt Zion ( Rebecca Foon ) over ten years ago, the Montreal explorers of cello and percussion limits have released a number of illuminating [...]
It's been a long weekend. I'm gonna go watch Game of Thrones and then hit the sack. In case you were wondering, I only got a couple of the RSD exclusives I was hoping to find, including the Chelsea Wolfe 73 (apparently no one in Silverlake likes her, as we still have 2 of the [...]
Our metal writer Phil Johnston caught up with Andrew and Rachel from NYC based sludge/doom band Archon and chatted about their new album Ouroboros Collapsing and other things.
Despite the last episode airing in 2004, Friends was on Channel 4 until 2011. The six cast members went on to form a black metal band called Venner . By the way, one of those sentences is not true. Whatever, we reckon Rachel looks the most like a pretty Norwegian man.
Loaded with a slight Jean Michel Jarre and slender Chicane tendency, Adam Berger sees off the fellow competition with his personal ode to ‘Rachel.’ 95 Royale & Yazid Le Voyageur go into immortal disco overdrive with ‘Star Voyage’ (so you might need your audio sunglasses for that) while the blindin’ collaborations continue from R3hab & ZROQ and the emphatic Mat Zo & Porter Robinson. Throwing all characteristic notions from out of the 31st-floor window, all camps enclosed are products of their own environment. And that environment is Party, Party, Party !!!! ADAM BERGER - Rachel [...]
Night Panther - Fever In a thrift store, I found a white, hand-painted mug for 99 cents. The front read Meg in loving, loopy, lipstick-red script. The back: Rachel April 16, 1994 Meg and Rachel met at a bar when Rachel caught Meg’s eye from across the bar and sent a bourbon-and-coke her way with a wink and a kiss on a napkin. They met in the middle and danced off-beat to The Cardigans and The Go Gos. Meg was trying too hard. Rachel asked for her [...]
Si os hablo de Faris Badwan seguramente os venga inmediatamente a la cabeza unop de los grupos más exitosos de 2011: The Horrors . Los británicos continuaban en su tercer trabajo el buen hacer de Primary Colors , y, eso sí, dejaban un poco atrás su época más dura, aunque a cambio nos otorgaban el que es seguramente su mejor trabajo. Y en ese trabajo Badwan tuvo literalmente mucho que decir. Y ahora vuelve a tener mucho que decir, aunque en otro campo. El de productor discográfico, o [...]
Yeah, I slept last night. I slept the shit out of sleep. And this morning I awoke in a much better and well-rested mood. It's amazing what a handful of over-the-counter sleeping pills and a cold room can do for a man. Well, I'll not dawdle here. Enjoy your mix tape. RULES for uninitiated noobs: [...]

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Jeff Mueller's three seminal bands Rodan, June of 44, and Shipping News. So it is with great sadness that I report the death of guitarist/vocalist Jason Noble, who played in both Rodan and Shipping News (as well as Rachel's). Noble had been battling a rare [...]
I lettori più fedeli di Soundsblog probabilmente ricordano l'articolo di dicembre 2011 nel quale veniva raccontata l'eliminazione di Rachel Crow, 13enne concorrente della squadra di Simon Cowell. La sua uscita dal programma provocò, nell'ordine 1) una crisi di pianto della ragazzina 2) una crisi di nervi isterica di Nicole Scherzinger che si sentiva in colpa per aver fatto decidere al pubblico della sorte della giovane ( cliccate qui per vedere il video ) Ed ecco Rachel Crow tornata in auge con il brano "Mean Girls", del quale potete vedere il video ufficiale in apertura post. La storia narrata [...]
