Review: The debut album by Trent Reznor's collaborative project 'How To Destroy Angels' is a flag planted in his new creative path.

Joseph DiDomizio, lead producer: "President of What?" by Death Cab for Cutie (1998)
In 1998, Death Cab for Cutie released their first LP Something About Airplanes on Barksuk Records, the current home of Ra Ra Riot amongst others.

Review: Syracuse-based band The Vanderbuilts released "I Wish I Was a Saber-Toothed Tiger" Feb. 14 via their website and YouTube.
"I Wish I Was a Saber Tooth-Tiger" starts out slow and melodic, a guitar progression accompanied by a few plucked banjo notes. But much like its accompanying video, it quickly morphs into something imaginative and upbeat, fluid vocals layered over guitar riffs, piano and violin.
If it's any indication of what's to be expected on The Vanderbuilts' second album, we can expect something great.

The 120-year-old Carnegie Hall has an imposing presence that tends to hang over many artists who perform on the Ronald O. Perelman Stage. The decade-old experimental rock group Dirty Projectors was no exception, and stood in stark contrast to the aging venue during their show on Friday Jan. 11.
