Sonic Space: Mitski

(03/10/15 3:27pm)

Finals are grim. In these dark times, I usually turn to sad, slow folk-rock à la Simon and Garfunkel — there is something weirdly soothing about wallowing in morose lyrics while pouring over four weeks of backlogged readings and weeping silently into my KAF cider. So when I heard the words “folk” and “rock” being thrown around in describing the latest album by Mitski Miyawaki, the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter who goes by the handle Mitski, my ears perked up. Of course, this classification underemphasizes the intensity of the drums and distortions that pop up in almost every track of her new album “Bury Me At Makeout Creek” (2014) — but it’s technically not inaccurate.

Sonic Space: The Blank Tapes

(03/02/15 1:15am)

California native Matt Adams smokes a lot of marijuana. This is something he wants you to know, or at least it’s something you wouldn’t be surprised to learn after a simple perusal of the track list for his newest album “Geodesic Dome Piece” (2015). With titles as subtle as “Way Too Stoned,” “Magic Leaves” and “4:20,” the album seems like it’s auditioning to be the soundtrack to “Pineapple Express" (2008).

Sonic Space: Viet Cong

(02/24/15 4:56pm)

At this point, writing about Viet Cong’s new album “Viet Cong” (2015) is practically unavoidable for me. The Calgary-based band, who first came to attention with their EP “Cassette” (2014), is comprised of bassist Matt Flegel and drummer Michael Wallace —both from the now-defunct indie rock outfit Women, who broke up after an on-stage fight and the death of a band member —and guitarists Scott Munro and Daniel Christiansen. Their new debut album, which has already seen strong reviews since its January release, continues to captivate and process the grief found in their initial offering.

Top Ten: Green Key Artists We Wish Programming Board Could Invite

(02/17/15 12:17pm)

We’re a practical bunch here @Dartbeat, and clearly we understand that our dream of having Beyoncé perform for Green Key was just a tad far-fetched. That said, we couldn’t help but be a bit disappointed with some of the options Programming Board blitzed to campus a couple of weeks ago. So, in order to make sure the Green Key voting process is as equitable as possible, we’ve compiled a list of additional suggestions that we’re confident Dartmouth could bring to campus this spring. Comment or tweet @dartbeatblog to cast your vote or to suggest an additional name!

Sonic Space: Beach Day

(09/29/14 2:05pm)

The number of adjective phrases I could use to describe Beach Day and their sophomore album “Native Echoes” is a little ridiculous. They’re sweetened punk-infused ’60s garage surf rock for a start, and their infectious sound is perfect for anyone who likes their beach days to end in huge, salty hair and late night burger runs. On the flipside, the album, while easy listening, can tend toward being a little too easy to forget.
