    [DARK INDIETRONICA] Born Gold- Until You Heal

      I was to start this year at war.  I swore I needed it. Really.  It’s been Baghdad inside me, at least since the year genocide donned a cocktail mask and rode bombs into the downtown core cooing ‘Don’t mind me, I’m freeeedom!’. 2003. Fuck.  A whole generation of baby memories grew up in that time […]

    [PHOTO RECAP] See You In The Pit: Behind The Scenes With X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons’ Into The Jungle Tour

      A muggy Chicago day. Overcast and drizzling. Just another unpredictable day in Chicago. I walk down an alley next to Lincoln Hall in Chicago and am greet warmly by the guys of X-Ambassadors. For the next few hours I quietly observe as the band sets up their equipment for the night’s show. From load […]

    [DARK POP] Real Lies – North Circular (Local Hero Remix)

      Solitude sinks its teeth into my stomach. It’s got me twisted up in knots, shooting glances at my gut–not trusting it knows how to get me back to humanity.  So, I pacify it with whiskey.  Shot after shot across every bar stool I can find in Thailand.  And I sit in silence and stare […]

[DEEP HOUSE] July Child – “When You Call” (Deepend remix)

  I’ll never quite understand the intrinsic pull that one human being can feel toward another. Science has attributed it to genetic chemistry and pheromones, those of a more spiritual orientation call it finding a soulmate, and people like me…don’t even try to explain it. Some things, in my opinion, are not meant to be […]

[ELECTRO FUNK/SOUL] Manic Focus – ‘Cerebral Eclipse’ Album Review

  I have to admit, music got away from me for a minute. Life can be a crazy bitch and trying to keep up with what she’s thinking will do you in. It’s been a hectic few weeks, and the time I’ve spent with my mistress has been few and far between. Between the reality […]

[CONCERT/PHOTO RECAP] See You In The Pit: The Black Mass Tour

  The most beautiful thing that can ever happen at a show is when you go in with absolutely no expectations whatsoever. And while I am huge fan of some of the bands I saw on this particular night, I was blown away by the experience I had when I went to the Black Mass […]
