Whitehorse – Leave No Bridge Unburned (album review)

February 16, 2015

Here at HearYa, we enjoyed Whitehorse’s last effort, The Fate Of The World Depends On This Kiss, just fine. A couple guys from the HearYa crew caught them at SXSW ’13 and said they put on a real good show. But while good, the album seemed to lack a certain punch to it to make [...]

January 30, 2015

Like Ryley Walker, I first heard of Courtney Barnett on a Best of 2014 list (see there is some use to those pointless exercises). Her double EP, A Sea of Split Peas was on the Paste list at #10. This track rocks with fuzzed out guitars, great lyrics. Fuck, even the video is awesome. I [...]
