[DARK POP] Foster The People- Coming of Age (Wolf Saga Cover)

Countless hours, countless times, Torches-era Foster The People altered–no, saved–my life. When my head was spinning into stormcloud suffocation, it’d tame the skies. When I’d urban bike at night lost in thoughts with less than a casual eye paid to traffic—I thought I could outrun my thoughts–their songs grounded me, and kept me from more […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Tourist- Patterns (Ft. Lianne La Havas)

The patterns are in front of me. They shoot from my eyes, projected like old movies–running memories, reel by reel, blink by blink.  And they keep me up at night, because they keep forcing my eyes open. The movies are disjointed, they hold no connecting link, not one even barely apparent that some asshole esoteric […]

[EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW] Geoff Weers, Lead Singer of The Expendables Talks Tinder, Touring and T-Rex’s

The Expendables live and breathe music. It’s evident in their endless touring schedule, their seemingly infinite number of SoundCloud uploads, and in their conversations. They are a group that comes around rarely, sticking together as a band of buds through the insane ups and downs of living lives as professional musicians, only growing stronger as […]
