There’s a nasty rumor going around that I’m a hipster…

Posted January 21, 2011 by Pierce Vernacular

…well let me add fuel to the fire: I love vinyl! I just bought a new record player and a bunch of old and new records and I am a pig in fucking shit! Somethings were just MADE to be listened to on vinyl. Nothing else will give you that perfectly magical imperfection. Cracks and [...]

Sorry, but it’s time for the obligatory.

Posted January 5, 2011 by Pierce Vernacular

I had quite the internal struggle this past week over whether or not to do a “year in review” type blog. Everyone does it. It’s beat to death every December. I tried to steer clear, but I just couldn’t think of anything else to write, so this is my stick, and with it I plan [...]

Hey, remember the earthquake that desemated #Haiti? #Radiohead does.

Posted December 29, 2010 by Pierce Vernacular

  Remarkably, nearly a year ago, shortly after the devastating earthquake that brought an already weak Haiti to it’s knees, Radiohead put on an intimate benefit concert at LA’s Music Box Theater. The capacity crowd of 863 paid $1500 plus each for a ticket. Radiohead raised and donated $572,754. In the words of Thom Yorke, [...]

The Temper Trap, Pierce Why do I like them?

Posted December 21, 2010 by Robbie Danger

As Doug and B can tell you, I don’t have anywhere near the musical knowledge of bands and music that they do.  Pierce too, though he just doesn’t know my ineptitude like they do.  I do have similar tastes as the rest of the guys, but just not the knowledge around it. The other day [...]

Good ole fashion Brit rock? Why, yes I will, thank you.

Posted December 17, 2010 by Pierce Vernacular

Brighton, England gives us a new face in indie/hipster/post punk/brit rock. Fresh off the heels of the commercial sounds of unapologetically English bands like The Fratellis, and Arctic Monkeys, comes a band that’s been hiding in plain site for about five years now. I speak of your new favorite Limeys, Blood Red Shoes. This is [...]

We must stop #Weezer

Posted December 8, 2010 by Pierce Vernacular

Tis the season for giving, and I think I’ve found the most worthy and hilarious cause for all you givers out there to donate your money to.  I’ll admit that I am a fan of Weezer’s first two albums, but I couldn’t agree more with what the charity organizer has to say. Check out the [...]

Gotta love the new Girls

Posted December 3, 2010 by Pierce Vernacular

I’m actually talking about the San Francisco rock duo “Girls,” and their new album Broken Dreams Club. This is some seriously sad, heart-wrenching, but hopeful, brilliant music. They take rock and roll standards and give them, what I hope will become a signature, Girls treatment. It is, at first listen, fairly simple. At times a [...]

Jack “abstrusely” White is a pretty cool dude

Posted November 10, 2010 by Pierce Vernacular

He’s not wearing any make up here, and it’s not Halloween. I think someone is a little too team Edward. Jack White is the most aptly last named person I can think of. The only name more suitable would be “HolyshitIcanseeyourteethwithyourmouthclosed.” But he wasn’t born Dutch, so that wasn’t an option. I would really like [...]
