How All Our Noise Became One of D.C.’s Best Music Blogs

At first, Victor Alejándro Aguilar and Raul Zahir De Leon didn't mean for All Our Noise to take on its own life. "We had this DJ night we were trying to promote," says De Leon. "We had this idea we would have this blog mostly to promote this night." Their Marquis party at Napoleon may not [...]

Here are some things I might do this weekend!

Endorsed: All Our Noise’s Very Watchable SXSW Wrap-Up

It's true: This year's South by Southwest feels like it ended 48 months ago. I already briefly pondered the South by Southwest postmortem, which is surely its own codified form by now. It's several weeks later, but the content bomb that All Our Noise just dropped—which includes over a dozen videos the site's Denman C. [...]

They also voiced a few rankling opinions about the [...]

Child Ballads Covers Dean Martin, Performs at Velvet Lounge Tonight

When it comes to reinterpreting the music of the past, Stewart Lupton has a pretty expert touch. In Jonathan Fire*Eater, he got some real mileage out of Mick Jagger circa '69. Child Ballads' Cheekbone Hollows EP made clever connections between Bobby Charles' rootsy schtick and Royal Trux-style decadence. But Dean Martin? Seems like a [...]

And they're rocking out. The band's past couple of releases–History of Cut Nails in America and 2008's Covers EP–had some grit, [...]

Jesse Elliott @ All Our Noise

These United States' new record, Everything Touches Everything, landed yesterday. It's a little bit more rocking than the bands prior releases, as evidenced by the various singles that have been posted on this blog.
