Rheteric Ramirez aka  Neitzsche Cortez | Hellfyre Club
Interviews are one of my favorite parts of being a SYFFALeer. The reason: intimacy. Album reviews, video postings, column additions? None come close to the interview on the scale o'sensh. So you know that if we've interviewed a band it's because we've usually reached out and begged and stalked and pestered them until they acquiesce. It parallels our love lives.  I had a chance to chop it up...

I was asked to interview Rival Sons a couple of weeks ago and I had no idea who they were. And because I don't want to interview a shitty band I requested to preview their latest album Great Western Valkyrie before committing.   Holy shit on cornbread! The hot and dry sound on this album has evaporated the pleather pants off my hairy legs. I...
Morbidly-O-Beats, FilthyBroke Records, Interview
Morbidly-O-Beats is the dude. My friend and fellow Southern Cali emcee Kid Presentable first turned me on, and then turned me on to Morbid's genius. That was soon co-signed by the indelible Syffal enigma Employee, and by Portland rapper/connoisseur of all things titular Bloodmoney. If that's not a virtual one-two-three punch, call me Little Mac and send me into fight Sodapopinski. ?(Whaaat?...
Andrew Milicia, MLBeatz, Red, White & Brew, Interview
One of this year’s pleasant surprises was Red, White & Brew – the delightful new album from Andrew Milicia x MLbeatz. Honest and sensh, Red, White & Brew was the perfect way to usher in spring for a fellow like me. MLbeatz’s production was all sorts of warm and humid, yet breezy so you don’t sweat too much, thus avoiding the chafe in your inner thigh. For his part...
ratboiler, EP, metal, punk, Baltimore, Interview
This shit feels like razor burn coupled with $5 shot and beer combos bro bro. ratboiler burst into my world with some guitars that were like death by 1000 little slices. Some ancient torture techniques written in the code of perfect riffs, drums that haunt your dreams and vocals that sound like So-Cal punk with the attitude of Norwegian black metal. It was Sabbath meets the...

WeWereAstronauts drop EXCLUSIVE SYFFAL SINGLE "Music City"!

I know nothing about WeWereAstronauts.

Bro, I only know what I know bro, and what I know bro has nothing to do with WeWereAstronauts bro.

Welp, I should mention that lately I've been waking up in the middle of the night with a need to look out the...

Kauf - Labyrinth Ear - Lorna (Kauf Remix)

I'm a complete fanboy for Kauf.

His electro steezo caught me completely the Fuck off guard and I was soon addicted to a mere FOUR songs for over a month.

Every opportunity I had to walk slow, I threw on the Kauf, bro bro.

Tom's SYFFAList for August 2014

If you recall, or were even paying attention we decided it was time to do away with our weekly group features because writing was becoming an assignment. Due dates and procrastination lead to half-assed scribblings. When writing and listening to music becomes less fun, we are not...

One Song: Christopher Owens - It Comes Back To You

I just came across 'It Comes Back To You', a track that was released 5 months ago by Christopher Owens. I'm not sure how this didn't come across my Ow-dar because although I wasn't 100% hard for his last release, the EPs and LPs Owens' released with ...

DAMEHT - Girl Jeans

Whoever the Fuck DAMEHT are, they're fucking KILLING me with this "Girl Jeans" track.

At first I thought I was listening to a smooshwich of The 1975 and The Neighborhood, but without the "the...

You probably already know that a bunch of us SYFFALITICS are/were musicians. So we fucking get it, it’s hard out there for a musician bro. Not only are you constantly dealing with your parents questioning your lifestyle choices and telling you...

Wildcat! Wildcat!, Marfa, Downtown Records, No Moon At All

One Song: Marfa by Wildcat! Wildcat!

Wildcat! Wildcat! just released their debut album No Moon At All and it's pretty fucking good. I'm probably going to review it soon, but because I prcastinatez, I needed to get up this track for 'Marfa' ASAP.
