My First Day At The FYF Fest, Saturday August 22nd 2015 Review

By Alyson Camus | August 24, 2015

What are you thinking FYF fest, do you want to compete with Glastonbury or Coachella? … you were this cool DIY fest and now you are all grown up and so big. How much did you pay Kanye? More than Frank Ocean? I would like to know, as I was amazed to see that 2-day tickets were still available a few days before the festival,… which didn’t sell out?

Not With The Band: Stage Or Not Stage Diving?

By Alyson Camus | September 29, 2014

I don’t participate to this sort of behavior – of course! – but I would never imagine a law against stage diving, as a matter of fact, if I see a sign ‘No stage diving’, like in some unnamed clubs on the strip, I have a tendency to think the place sucks… yes I got really scared a few times, like in the pit of the Bad Brains at the Sunset Junction fair, at a Trash Talk show at the El Rey where bodies were flying over my hea

FYF Fest Day One, Part 1, Saturday August 23rd 2014

By Alyson Camus | August 26, 2014

I continue to go to music festivals despite my hate and love relationship with them, it’s probably the worst place to see a band, as it’s gonna be hot and very crowded, and you are gonna be tired and thirsty… My first day at the FYF fest this year was a perfect example of all this, I struggled the whole day and it was (almost) no fun

Endless Sleeper – The Raveonettes – If I ever ran into this band I would apologize for mistaking them for a tasty movie treat and ignoring their body of work, which like this randomly chosen track off their new album, is uniformly excellent.

Joyce Manor's CD Hunt In Los Angeles

By Alyson Camus | July 27, 2014

I feel special and a bit wily… There was a guy who was hiding envelopes full of cash all over the place in the same area a few weeks ago, and I have never found one, but a CD? I have no problem finding it, go figure.

Joyce Manor At Amoeba, Thursday July 24th 2014, Reviewed

By Alyson Camus | July 26, 2014

The four Joyce Manor guys took the Amoeba stage in the most casual way, and right away started playing their punk anthems in front of an ecstatic crowd; it’s simple, the bunch of dark-haired girls behind me instantaneously morphed themselves into a choir of chanting-screaming females as soon as the band played the first note

10 Songs: Thursday, July 24th, 2014

By Iman Lababedi | July 24, 2014

Free Your Mind – Cut Copy – The beat pattern is quite clever and the howling at the “moooon shines brighter than the sun” is a good hook, but the vocal isn’t there and the rest of the track doesn’t pay it off – B-

Joyce Manor "Never Hungover Again" Album Reviewed

By admin | July 23, 2014

The album as a whole is short and sweet, and upon first listen, I thought definitely too short. However, upon further listening, I realized that if it had been any longer, it would’ve been repetitive and simply not as good. I feel like I could never get tired of having it on repeat, which is a quality Joyce Manor’s had since the very beginning

Joyce Manor "Schley" Track Review

By admin | June 19, 2014

It’s pretty bare bones and laid back, but when the lead guitar kicks in, it gains even more depth and the riff is unique and unlike anything the band’s ever produced before, but I love it. It’s so odd and shows them expanding their horizons, which is awesome to see.

Joyce Manor "Catalina Fight Song" Video Reviewed

By admin | May 15, 2014

The tune itself serves as perfect background noise for this intense (and intensely silly) video. It’s quick, strong, angsty, catchy, and leaves you wanting so much more. I didn’t think it was possible for the guys to get any better, but I was wrong.

Joyce Manor New Unnamed Song, Reviewed

By admin | May 13, 2014

The tune is short and sweet, fast and the melody is complex and wonderful, and feels like a classic punk song. “You wonder how long something can last- pretty sure most people don’t think about that. But who the fuck is laughing now?”
