Halftime Reviews: Too by FIDLAR

By:
09/10/2015

LA-based punk band FIDLAR takes their name from the skate mantra “f*ck it dog, life’s a risk,” and true to those words the band takes many risks on their sophomore album, Too. The band consists of frontman Zac Carper, bassist Brandon Schwartzel, and brothers Elvis and Max Kuehn on guitar and drums respectively (fun fact…

Metal and Satanism, blues and sadness, rap and da club—some music genres and subject matters just seem to go together. With their new album, Beat the Champ, the Mountain Goats attempt an unconventional combination of folk rock and professional wrestling. Led by guitarist and vocalist John Darnielle, the Mountain Goats successfully use the storytelling format…

After two top ten albums, The Cribs may no longer be a British cult band, but they still have a major challenge in upholding their long stretch of great music with For All My Sisters, their fifth studio album. Formed in 2001, the band consists of twins Ryan and Gary Jarman on guitar and bass,…

Skepticism is often the response when a college band promotes their music, but that shouldn’t be the case with The Ripples. The Georgetown band just released their eponymous second album, and the band members’ artistry combine to create plenty of catchy tunes and soothing melodies. Tyler Pierce (COL ‘15) and Zach Fore are technically astounding…

Millions of people across the country watch the Super Bowl halftime show every year, and Katy Perry’s recent one was no exception. However, once you got past the robot lion, elaborate costumes, and left shark, the performance was really just a woman singing over computerized beats. That description sounds more critical than I mean it…

By:

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and couples everywhere are preparing. Guys are making dinner reservations and buying flowers, gals are getting fancy new dresses, and I’m receiving angry comments for conforming to gender stereotypes. Still, not everyone will be looking forward to the holiday. Plenty of people won’t be venturing out for romantic walks or…

Sterling Malory Archer, everyone’s favorite socially dysfunctional spy, is back in a big way. Airing every Thursday at 10, season 6 of Archer takes the show back to its roots. Season 5’s Archer Vice disappointed some fans with its change in style, as the cast left behind their spy careers for a taste of the…

Though I once thought that Dr. Dog was a solo artist, the band consists of six members, two guitarists, a bassist, a drummer, a keyboardist, and a sixth member who plays various instruments. Their style is best described as psychedelic indie rock, though they have a touch of folk and Beach Boys-esque surf rock as…

By:

The Memories’ Hot Afternoon could not have been more appropriately named. After three self-produced albums from the Portland-based band, Hot Afternoon, their first studio album, contains exactly the kind of relaxing, jangly stoner rock that you’d expect to hear while relaxing at the beach. While The Memories have some success with this style, there are…
