Here we go again! Part wishful thinking, part playing detective while piecing together social media updates, and part actual facts! We could only be talking about our latest crystal ball viewing as we look to the year 2023 and hope for the best that those “confirmed” releases actually come out and that maybe our thoughts and prayers are answered when it comes to those with less concrete plans as of this posting. Join us, won’t you?[Read more…]
2022 is producing a LOT, and we mean A LOT, of unexpected surprise rekkids in our regular wheelhouse of favorites. We had some hopes that this band called Drab Majesty might be back with a new record (And they just might with a recently announced support slot with AFI happening in the fall) but are completely content with the unexpected news of the sophomore outing from sorta similarly sounding VR SEX.[Read more…]
I was going to start this thing off with an additional list of “honorable mentions” so I could add EVERYTHING I wanted to include on this year end list but figured, if you regularly read this blog then you know that whatever gets featured here already has major heart eyes from its’ Editor-In-Chief so without further adieu, here’s the real meat and potatoes (Hyperlinks to our reviews are in the headers where applicable):[Read more…]
Holy hell do we have to nip this thing in the bud before we even start! The idea was to have 19 solid releases that are in various states of development to fill out our list of most anticipated for 2019 (Get it? 19 in ’19) but then we kept thinking about ALL THE REST that are due (supposedly) so we had to add a precursor to said list which, well, got kind of insane. So for your reading pleasure is this stream of consciousness thing we concocted before the actual list which follows directly after. We even put artists in bold so you can skip around the wordsplosion that’s about to happen. Thanks in advance for reading! [Read more…]
It’s that time of the year again! A time of reflection! A time of typing! A time of regretting the decision to pick the amount of best albums based on what year it is.
Review links are attached to the band name where applicable. Thanks in advance for reading! [Read more…]
You ever have a song that completely pushes you over the edge of REALLY wanting to shell out some dough to go to a show? Let me rephrase that: Do you ever find yourself hearing a song that compels you to buy tickets to a show by an artist that you’ll ALREADY be seeing in the same week in a different state/venue? Once you hear the latest by Drab Majesty, I’m sure you’ll agree with my current feels as well. [Read more…]
With a distinct sound soaked in Goth and New Wave, Drab Majesty’s latest album also benefits from subtle odes to bands like Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Gene Loves Jezebel, and Psychedelic Furs. While that impressive list of comparable legendary scene bands should be enough to pique interest, it’s the strength of Drab Majesty’s own songs that will make sure you stick around for more.
