Album Review: Justin K Comer — ‘Undustrial Devolution 1 & 2’

by Kent Williams, Jan 10
Justin K. Comer and his friends who play on Undustrial Devolution 1 & 2 are on the vanguard for free improvisational music in Iowa. That means they’re somewhere out in a cornfield where the other footprints stop, striking out in random directions.




Book Review: ‘Sound Fury’ by Mark Levine

by Sarah Elgatian, Jan 9
Things not to do: read Mark Levine’s Sound Fury while battling a nasty rhinovirus. Here’s why: Levine (deftly) uses so many literary devices simultaneously that one really needs the full use of their faculties to experience Sound Fury (University of Iowa Press).




Album Review: Goyf and Bodiah — ‘Goyf/Bodiah Split’

by Jack Howard, Jan 9
You don’t have to spend much time digging to discover talented contemporary artists in Iowa. Whether you’re a hardcore, a hip-hop head, an indie-folker or a stoner-metal enthusiast, you’re bound to find something to satisfy your particular niche in one of the state’s population hubs.
When it comes to searching for electronic music in this state, however — particularly the lesser-listened-to styles you won’t hear in Court Avenue clubs or college town bars — you’ll need to put in more time to scratch that itch.
