Drive Me Home Please – Infinite Tsukuyomi

tmhp

Solo artist Zach Hallenbeck, under the name Drive Me Home Please, creates lo-fi synth jams that explore the inner confines of his mind. Channeling the stylistic elements of  Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, and armed with little more than what sounds to be a microKORG and a drum machine, the Rochester-based beats-and-keys bedroom artist has…

Slumbers – Come Over

slumbers

I drove home in the snow tonight (Sunday). And no, not just a dusting, Buffalo’s first semi-legitimate accumulation this December. The roads were mostly awful; it took me about double the amount of time it normally does to get home from work. But amongst all the fishtailing, wheel spinning, and “am I even on the…

Cooler – Phantom Phuzz

PHANTOM PHUZZ FINAL (1)

Through being cool? Well try being Cooler. Buffalo’s emogaze-alternative all-stars return for round two with Phantom Phuzz, a six-track EP of regret, carbonated soft drinks, and that sweet, fuzzy thickness. The album’s carefully crafted tones compete vigorously with lyrical prowess and song structure for prominence, bringing relevant elements of juxtaposition to Cooler’s sophomore effort. Recorded…

Space Cubs – Something For Us

This eight-song release serves as Suzanne Bonifacio’s most recent full length as Space Cubs, the one-woman experimental electronic project based out of Buffalo. With vocals that are pure, direct, and at times otherworldly, Bonifacio constructs an atmosphere around her listener. Each song is a…

Green Slime – Green Slime

14445098_1831362683767797_6906082280321414621_o

Green Slime is a Buffalo duo making an incredible amount of noise. Have you ever heard the acronym KISS? It stands for “keep it simple stupid.” Green Slime is a duo (Eric and Blake Ellman to be exact) who have obviously taken that advice to heart. The brothers Ellman spent a few days with Jay Zubricky…

For You, their newest six-song effort, is a glorious scientific approach to solid indie rock that will make you want to see them live. The first track, “Reversed” starts off with post-punk distorted guitar chords. Then, the…
