Re: “Malachi, Mourning Days: Volume II

Josh Gross's review of Malachi gives one the impression that his attention to this musical group's work is somehow incisive and important. The artists in question are reasonably talented and musically competent, but this reviewer is not content to break it down on this level. In fact, he seems to pan the band on the basis of personal taste!
Reviews of local art should not rub out the curiosity of the public audience. Local proto-critics working for little local weeklies and the editorial boards that inhabit them do little to serve The Cause of local art if they dissuade readers by critical overreach. Encouagement of public curiosity should be the watch words of these publications so that the people can go see and hear it for themselves.

Re: “Taking a (Fat) Chance

2/24/2013 -- Believe me, folks, Steve is much too modest. I've found him to be one of the most talented and versatile performers anywhere in the Country -- and I've been a musician for a long, long time. If you ever have a chance to hear Steve play and sing, by all means, do it! He and his long-time sax player buddy, Phil Garonzik, are really hard to beat! -- Johnny Downing, Boise, Idaho

Re: “Lonerism by Tame Impala

this is such a disappointing review. This album scored 9.5 out of 10 on Pitchfork. It is so well written and put together. Did you actually listen to it?

Re: “Local Album Avalanche

Hi, Mike from Hummingbird Of Death here. I feel compelled to point out that we didn't actually make our new LP available for download. (Wouldn't want to sabotage the investment Deep Six Records made in putting our record out!) But you can stream the album at Thanks for the shout-out!

If anyone's interested in attending our record release show December 28, but doesn't know the location, feel free to email us!

Re: “Jake Shimabukuro to Wage Peace on Boise

My guitar skills are average and basic at best. Good enough to support my writing interests from guitar lessons, but in no way good enough to provide anything other than basic rhythm.

Re: “Beltane, Self-Titled

I don't understand how comments on a simple review turn into a thread almost entirely devoted to Josh's penis. But here's what I think: If (Josh's penis) "...resembles a puppy tucked into a blanket" then that puppy is a Great
Dane and the blanket is a California king size down comforter.
