"Tereu Tereu took a murky, dystopian love song and made it a murkier, more barren planet even less fit for human habitation."
Twenty-four years on, Maryland-formed post-rock outfit Trans Am is a vocoder band in a post-Auto-Tune world, but they’re still a lithe and propulsive machine, churning through several generations’ visions of the future. On Volume X, dystopian funk melts into Kraftwerkian synth workouts; there’s a robotic mouth solo that would make Peter Frampton jealous. As always, the [...]
As far as most indie-rock rock critics know, D.C. has two Ians, a Henry, a Travis, and some dude named H.R., and they all got discovered at the 9:30 Club or in the DMV—but how bands get noticed by tired folks waiting in line to get their drivers licenses renewed, well, who knows.

The kookiest track D.C.-founded indie-rock band Deleted Scenes has made to date, "Stutter," now has a kooky (and great! And quite dark!) music video. The star? Dustin Diamond. Yes, Screech. A miserable, gets-the-crap-beat-out-of-him Screech.
Deleted Scenes' full-length Lithium Burn, the followup to 2011's Young People's Church of the Air, is out April 15. Fingers crossed for more insanity.

The Dismemberment Plan's first original studio album in a dozen years, Uncanney Valley, isn't likely to end up on too many end-of-year Top 10 lists. But while it's hard to see that album as anything other than a product of an aging band, The Dismemberment Plan's live show is basically ageless—at least judging by the [...]
From the "slept on" file: Pitchfork premiered a new song, "Stutter," from D.C. indie-rock quartet Deleted Scenes last week, and it's kind of wackadoodle. That's not a negative assessment. The crazy, shrieky "Stutter" feels like a natural extension of where the band was headed on its last LP, Young People's Church of the Air, and [...]
The trickles, they keep coming: Today, Dismemberment Plan released another song from its anticipated forthcoming album, Uncanney Valley. "Daddy Was a Real Good Dancer," a kind of blue number about a guy who gives up cuttin' a rug when he becomes a father, takes on the same sneaky complexity of any great D-Plan song: While Travis [...]
