It was a sloppy weekend at Silverstone, site of the 2012 British Grand Prix. Friday practice was wet. Rain also interrupted qualifying, but after more than 3 hr a starting grid was established featuring Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) at P1, Mark Webber (Red Bull) at P2, and Michael Schumacher (Mercedes) continuing his resurgence at P3. Other qualifying notables included Pastor Maldonado (Williams) at P7, Nico Hulkenberg (Force India) at P9, and Jenson Button (McLaren) fa...

Power pop. Pop rock. Whatever you call it, you know you love it. Even if it’s not your main musical pleasure, it’s a great go-to B-team, the music you can call on when whatever it is you mainline burns you out for a spell.

Pull up a seat. It’s heavy.

My hat goes off to Southern Lord Records for putting together an amazing package tour with Enabler, Burning Love, Martyrdod, and Black Breath. The label itself has carved a very cool niche for themselves in terms of the bands on their roster and the style of heavy music that they deal in. And on Friday 6/29/12 the aforementioned bands graced the new Walter’s location in Houston with wave upon wave of crushing, caustic, bleak, and claustrophobic musical tonnage.
