The Vamp bring retro speakers to life. It's a rare but cool gadget that recaptures the classic sound of well-built speakers. It even provides a power source, making any speaker portable.

Three rugged button-downs with an affliction. Affliction Clothing draws inspiration from country as much as rock and roll to make a more rugged button down for women.

Black Label Society puts out a sedated retro rocker in Catacombs Of The Black Vatican. There aren't any hits or misses exactly, but the acoustic break out Scars is especially memorable. http://www.liquidhip.com/2014/04/black-label-society-in-catacombs.html

FTL: Faster Than Light jumps onto the iPad for more addictive permadeath fun. The indie space opera based loosely on Firefly (with some Star Trek undertones) feels like a slightly slower paced native on the new platform.

Fighting off any urge to mature, Dylan Baldi and Cloud Nothings have tightened up their performance while muddying up their sound.  Review: http://www.liquidhip.com/2014/04/cloud-nothings-are-here-and-nowhere.html

Slingshot is equal parts comedy, heaviness, and guitar licks. Left Lane Cruiser is in review. http://www.liquidhip.com/2014/04/slingshot-taps-classic-left-lane-cruiser.html#.U02xTl5zi0w

The Future's Void is complexly paranoid. And Erika Anderson isn't alone in feeling this way. Review: http://www.liquidhip.com/2014/04/ema-seethes-to-fill-futures-void.html

The Ascendant by Drew Chapman is a different kind of modern thriller, with an unlikeable and arrogant protagonist with gift for complex pattern recognition (who you grow to like anyway). #FridayReads

“Cope, to me, means getting by. It means letting go, and being OK with being OK,” says Andy Hull. “You can cope in a positive way when bad things happen or a negative way, and that blend was a big lyrical theme for me on this album.” http://www.liquidhip.com/2014/04/manchester-orchestra-gives-up-on-cope.html

We cover cool, not popular.
Introduction
Liquid [Hip] is an alternative review site that covers cool, not popular. Sometimes it's new. Sometimes it's retro. Sometimes it's music. Sometimes it's a book. Sometimes it's artistic. Whatever.

It's partly inspired by a little building that once existed at 231 East 47th Street in Midtown Manhattan. The building that Andy built no longer exists, but the idea behind it does.
