    Don’t Call It a Comeback

    Don’t Call It a Comeback

    I started writing music posts on EA’s Brain back in 2008, mostly because everyone I knew had some kind of blog and I wanted a place to talk about my favorite music.  Over the years, EA’s Brain has gone through a few different phases, each one reflecting my attitudes towards music at the time. SometimeContinue Reading

    Atlanta Band “Wolves” at The Masquerade: Live Show Review

    Atlanta Band “Wolves” at The Masquerade: Live Show Review

    As an Atlanta native, there is nothing I like so much as to see my hometown contribute something legitimately good to the cultural landscape.  With so many of my favorite bands coming from Brooklyn or L.A. or remote mid-western locations, I sometimes feel guilty that I don’t know more of the emerging musicians in myContinue Reading

    The Henry Clay People, Twenty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives: Album Review

    The Henry Clay People, Twenty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives: Album Review

    Album: Twenty Five for the Rest of Our Lives Artist: The Henry Clay People Year:2012   It’s been a good summer for punk rock.  Bands like Japandroids, Deer Tick, and to a lesser extent, Gentleman Jesse are proving that hard rock as a relevant sound is far from over.  In the incredible heat of this July,Continue Reading

    Punch Brothers, Who’s Feeling Young Now?: Album Review

    Punch Brothers, Who’s Feeling Young Now?: Album Review

    Punch Brothers calls themselves a bluegrass band, but I think the old-time bluegrass community might disagree. The instrumentation bears a strong resemblance to bluegrass, with the traditional combinations of guitar, fiddle (violin for you yankees out there), mandolin, banjo and bass, but the song structures are much more contemporary sounding, more in keeping with Nickel Creek than Bill Monroe.Continue Reading

    Purity Ring, Shrines: Album Review

    Purity Ring, Shrines: Album Review

    Album: Shrines Artist: Purity Ring Year: 2012   As a genre, experimental rock isn’t particularly descriptive.  With sub-genres including everything from house music to math rock to what is essentially instrumental post rock, albums placed under the experimental heading often struggle to define themselves. Case in point is the trippy and somewhat magical-sounding album Shrines from theContinue Reading

    Dirty Projectors, Swing Lo Magellan: Album Review

    Dirty Projectors, Swing Lo Magellan: Album Review

    Album: Swing Lo Magellan Artist: Dirty Projectors Year: 2012   Dirty Projectors are a band I have listened to for years, but never honestly paid that much attention to, until now.  With the recent release of Swing Lo Magellan, Dirty Projectors have leapt up a few rungs of amazingness, in my estimation. Swing Lo Magellan, like mostContinue Reading

    DIIV, Oshin: Album Review

    DIIV, Oshin: Album Review

    Album: Oshin Artist: DIIV Year: 2012   The Brooklyn-based post rock / indie rock band, DIIV (formerly Dive) is getting a fair amount of attention for it’s debut LP, Oshin, and rightly so. Oshin is a delicate, uplifting little album, the kind of music you play on a lazy Sunday afternoon but then find yourself listening toContinue Reading

    El-P, Cancer 4 Cure: Album Review

    El-P, Cancer 4 Cure: Album Review

    Album: Cancer 4 Cure Artist: El-P Year: 2012   My favorite thing about closely following new music is those rare moments when an album comes along that shines a new light on a tired sound or genre.  Cancer 4 Cure, the latest release from Brooklynite Jaime Meline, a.k.a. El-P, is one of those albums.  Just whenContinue Reading

    Gentleman Jesse, Leaving Atlanta: Album Review

    Gentleman Jesse, Leaving Atlanta: Album Review

    Album: Leaving Atlanta Artist: Gentleman Jesse Year: 2012   The idea of punk rock usually has more to do with it’s anti-establishment lyrics and short, fast-tempo music style than any other genre markers.  This leaves the door wide open for interpretation as to what does and does not qualify as punk rock. Leaving Atlanta, the newest release fromContinue Reading

    Kids These Days: The Up and Coming Talent of Leigh Ann’s Incisions

    I trekked up to Marietta last Saturday to check out a metal-core band made up of high school kids called Leigh Ann’s Incisions at a little Marietta venue called Swayze’s. Admittedly, I was out of my comfort zone in a few ways. For one, I don’t often journey out of Atlanta to hear music, notContinue Reading
