Under the banner of Off with Their Heads, Minneapolis songwriter Ryan Young and a constantly rotating cast of area punks brought life to his prolifically churned out songs of angst, anxiety, self-pity, and general hard living. Keeping to a rigorous touring schedule, Young never had any lack of complicated emotions and opportunities for bad decisions to fuel his songs, and he brought a grim soul-searching to raw, amped-up melodic punk songs album after album. Be Good marks the project's fifth proper album, not including a slew of singles, EPs, and lesser projects. Their first album of completely new material since 2013's Home (2016's Won't Be Missed reworked older songs in new acoustic readings), Be Good is all anthems of searching for hope in misery. Young's hardened growl is just as weathered as ever, but there's a sense of redemption that was missing in earlier songs. The long span of time off the road and a move from his longtime home of Minneapolis to Chicago might account for the ever-so-slightly lighter shades on Be Good. The album starts with "Disappear," perhaps its clearest and most present tune. Young sings a straightforward melody, lyrics dripping with disappointment, loneliness, and sentiments of feeling lost in a new place. The song erupts into blinding force, an unrelenting punk rock anthem mourning the loss of a former self. This meeting of blazing instrumentals and clearheaded self-inspection defines much of the album, with songs that beg for a deeper truth from both Young's internal and external worlds. "Take Me Away" looks for a savior and "Tear Me Apart" demands respect from a destructive relationship. Produced by Young, the album has some of Off with Their Heads' most driven performances. "Let It All" boasts production so red-lined it feels like the song is threatening to burst into flames at any moment. A more mature and introspective take on the bands' depressive pop punk is refreshing. Their always energetic songs rank with Against Me! and Alkaline Trio in terms of sheer force and dour emotional connectivity, and Be Good offers the strongest impact the band has made to date. ~ Fred Thomas

Daniel Johnston, A Troubling, Troubled Icon

No one ever sounded like Daniel Johnston. The little known depressive artist found fame thanks to his peers’ recognition. He passed away on September 11th, 2019, at the age of 58; his discography has slowly become the symbol of naïve, lo-fi and hyper-emotional music. It’s never too late to (re)discover this bona fide underground genius, and his heartfelt, authentic music.

Elvis, Still The King?

40 years after his death, Elvis Presley remains an unparalleled precursor. But even if his most important performances of 1954/55 for Sun Records remain the cornerstone of rock’n’roll, the aura today of the King seems to be fading in favour of younger generations such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys among others. And yet…

Woodstock: 50 Years Later

Woodstock wasn’t the first gathering of its kind dedicated to music. At the time, Newport was already a regular meetup for fans of the new rock & folk music that had come crashing upon the youth (American and otherwise) like a tidal wave. Festivals such as Monterey (California) or the Isle of Wight (U.K) had been all the talk of the previous summers. But Woodstock was by far and large the most memorable of them all, due to its unbridled, spontaneous nature, as well as its long list of famous performers. Case in point: 50 years later, eyes still light up when it’s mentioned.
