She & Him’s latest is more of the same, but that’s a good thing

By Eli Boonin-Vail
First, I’ve got to get something off of my chest. Volume 2, She & Him’s latest creation, is practically the same album as their 2008 debut album appropriately titled Volume 1. Both albums reek with the duo’s quirky cheerfulness, dazzle with ‘60s retrospective, and end with a breathy vocal number. For anyone who wasn’t at least 50 percent in love with the last She & Him album, Volume 2 adds nothing.

Salvador Santana's 'Keyboard City' has bright spots, but mostly annoying

By Eli Boonin-Vail
The best thing about Keyboard City is definitely the album packaging. The album itself doesn’t suck – it’s just that the creativity harnessed in the design that surrounds the disc would’ve greatly benefited a handful of the tracks on that disc.

Adam Green's 'Minor Love' feels poetic

By Eli Boonin-Vail
"Minor Love" isn’t a terribly complicated album. No song lasts more than three minutes, no song attempts a more than traditional rock instrument set up with the occasional wind instrument or horn section, and no song is devoid of Adam Green’s low, apathetic, not-quite-a-drawl-but-getting-close-to-it vocals.

'Eyelid Movies' is worth the wait

By Eli Boonin-Vail
Wikipedia says a phantogram is a form of optical illusion that uses something called “perspectival anamorphosis” trick your eyes from seeing a two-dimensional image as a three-dimensional one. I say Phantogram is a kick ass upstate New York Electronic Indie psychofreakout that tricks your ears into listening to something unique and endlessly fascinating.

'Ya-Ka-May,' Galactic's latest, is a blast

By Eli Boonin-Vail
Just like the album’s cover, "Ya-Ka-May" by the New Orleans band Galactic and released on Anti- records is a stunning combination of so many unrelated things that they all become related just by how random they are. It’s safe to say that the power that pulsates from this album is nothing short of great.

Lissie’s new EP: Strong start, weak finish

By Eli Boonin-Vail
Folksy bordering on irritating at points, newcomer indie singer/songwriter Lissie's [Lissie Maurus] EP Why You Runnin', out Nov. 10 on Fat Possum Records, makes an unstable but positive debut with her new label.
