    It's All Good: Holy Fuck, "Latin America"

    ​Did I just say that all the bands coming out of Canada these days sound the same? I was wrong. Witness the video for the recent single from Toronto-borne electro-jam outfit Holy Fuck, "Latin America" and get a lesson in sound economics. Holy Fuck give credence to the adage that says "when others ... More >>

    Record Review: Holy Fuck, Latin

    ​The Hype: It's been three years since critics lauded Holy Fuck's wild onslaught of electro improvisation on their 2007 album LP. In that time, Canadian keyboard duo Brian Borcherdt and Graham Walsh welcomed bassist Matt McQuaid and Matt Shulz to the party and slowly traded some unbridle ... More >>

    Street Scene Favorites This Weekend....Any Thoughts?

    ​It's not much, but consider this meager post the first preemptive stitch to our coverage of the Street Scene '09 festival happening in Sand Diego this weekend, Aug. 28-29. Before you say anything, we know that San Diego is not in Orange County. Though it could be argued that some cities at the as ... More >>

    Coachella, Day 3

    Funking Up the Future

    Day 2 of SXSW In my last post, I predicted Holy Fuck's set would be very hard to surpass. Well, I think it was at least equaled by a few artists on the bill at Barcelona—all instrumental hip-hop artists, in fact (Nosaj Thing, Free the Robots, Gaslamp Killer and Flying Lotus). Who would've thought ... More >>

    Holy Fuck: Now Even Better Than Their Name

    Thursday afternoon belonged to Holy Fuck. Yeah, yeah, indie-rock royalty were busy kissing Lou Reed's ring over at 4th and Brazos and that's all lovely and stuff, but I'm more interested in championing the second best band in the world right this second. (Best? Boredoms. Thanks for asking.) Holy Fu ... More >>

    Looking Ahead to South by Southwest

    The annual sonic bacchanal known as South by Southwest goes down March 12-16. Every year, several thousand music-biz types, musicians and ordinary mortals with more money than sense descend upon downtown Austin, Texas, cramming five months of musical activity into five days. I'll be blogging about a ... More >>

    Holy Fuck, Free Moral Agents, The Prospector, September 16, 2007

    Holy Fuck, generating more aural ecstasy. Photo by Jalapeño I raved about the Holy Fuck live experience (no, it's not a nun/clergy orgy, but isn't that a pretty thought?) before in this Heard Mentality post, but that show was a mere warm-up for what transpired last night. From start to finish at t ... More >>

The concert happens at 5 p.m. in the Brooklyn Bridge Park, New York, and is free, but you need to RSVP; it's probably a moot point n ... More >>
