Favorite track: She Don’t Care
"Perfect record to get bummed out on babes to. Trust me."
Favorite track: Cruising With God
"This record is drenched in Zuma-era Neil Young, J Mascis and copious amounts of marijuana. Get high and listen to Milk Music."
Favorite track: Health Plan
"I fucking love Pissed Jeans. Another solid release."
Favorite track: Lenguas Largas - No Wrong No Right
"This comp. is awesome, and a good representation of what’s been happening in Tucson in 2013. Pick up this CD/Tape from Topaz.”
Favorite track: Lip Service
"Tucson’s own. This album is a solid representation of what it’s like to grow up in a city at the bottom of the map, far away from any source of water. Make no mistake: Sex Prisoner is Tucson.”
Favorite track: Love Ain’t Strange (Everything Else Is)
"One of my favorite surprises this year. Psychedelic garage jams in the vein of the 13th Floor Elevators, but with a more rockin, jammier delivery that finds three acid-eating dudes from Seattle playing some of the coolest, catchiest jamz this side of 1968."
Favorite track: Man With the Hat
"Utterly disturbing, undeniably catchy, The Coltranes never disappoint. Acquire this record and let your mind go to some dark places."
Favorite track: A City Out of Reach
"Arguably the best release by a Tucson band this year, "Crummy Desert Sound" tops every previous Resonars release, which is saying a lot as every Resonars record has seriously been perfect. Forget what you heard about Calexico, the Resonars are the true sound of Tucson.”
Favorite track: Gun Shy
"Weed are where it’s at. Heavy, fuzzed-out jams drenched in heartache and angst. Apathetic vocals that burst inexplicably into fits of rage. The best of Nirvana, Codeine and Dinosaur Jr. blended together in a way that only living in the Pacific Northwest can do. Play this record loud."
Favorite track: ALL OF THEM
"After releasing several 7"s that FUCKING DESTROY, Hoax put out this full length LP in October only to tour it and then immediately disband, which is a shame, because this record is perfect. Mean, disgusting riffs backed by powerful drums juxtaposed by breakdowns that FUCKING GROOVE provide the disturbing backdrop for some of the most nihilistic, self-loathing lyrics penned in recent memory ("Looking for answers I look at the sky // I look into myself and I want to die // No spirit, no saving grace // No spirit, fucking alone"). Hoax rule. Find this record. Play it loud. Break everything."
Owner of Staring Without Caring, two time felon, rapper (download his most recent release “Иothing" produced by Tucson-native Jacob Safari using only Nine Inch Nails samples), co-founder of indie hip hop collective Machina Muerte.
