Album Review: Dikembe – Mediumship

Leave a comment

Gainesville, Florida quartet Dikembe was birthed in the emo revival of the past few years, but their debut EP, Chicago Bowls, and full-length, Broad Shoulders, owed more to the frenetic, upbeat post-hardcore of Moneen than the moody indie rock of Brand New. They seemed more carefree than their peers and labelmates, The Hotelier and Little Big League, with fast tempos and jokey song titles.

The band’s sophomore effort, Mediumship, sees them slowing down a bit and becoming more serious, trading in their pre-The World I Want to Leave Behind Moneen for some post-Your Favorite Weapon Brand New. The end result is very good, but I think it’s missing a little something. More

A Brief Note on Scheduling

Leave a comment

You probably noticed that I didn’t post a What I’ve Been Reading yesterday. I’m occupied over the next couple of weeks, so expect posting to resume by June 29th. Until then, if you’re living in the northern hemisphere, have a good summer. If you’re living in the southern hemisphere, stop being upside-down.
