    [DARK POP] Drake – Furthest Thing (Yaarrohs Cover)

     Photo Credit Anna Marcell. You saw me there in downtown Saigon, shouting. At a wall. All sorts of weird shit. If I have a defense, it’s that I looked up from thoughts that fired pieces of me out the fringes of a frown. They were all over the walkway. And it was goddamn stressing. All […]

    [DARK POP] Jamie xx (ft. Romy of The xx)- Loud Places + Official Music Video

      Photo Credit Levi Forester. My heart is Baghdad. My mind, Kabul. ‘Bout as long as bombs have lit the sky like music, the new national anthem; my mind’s been bursting with rivers of sound. Emotion, carried on rivers of blood. That rush through my head. That erupt, out my ears like a boombox. When […]

    [SHORT SHOTS OF SOUND] FKA twigs- Glass And Patron (Music Video Analysis)

      My pussy isn’t yours. Hands may traipse their way down my sternum. Might lead you to the promise land like a rope ladder. Rung by rung your expectation grows. Fuck me, I can hear your gasps through the screen. My fingers may flick sensually down my skin. Reach my vagina and I forget about […]

    [FESTIVAL COVERAGE] How CRSSD Restored My Love of Music Festivals

      I knew I had severely outgrown EDM festivals when I stopped wanting them to go on forever. Instead of a longing for the next show, I was left with a guilt-ridden anxiety that lingered far longer than the inevitable ringing in my ears. I thought my festival days were done when I wanted to […]

[CHILL/ELECTRONICA] Inventions – “Escapers”

  Like ocean waves, that kind of pulsing, thrumming, rushing, dull roar that fills your brain as much as your ears. It drowns out thought like it drowns out all other sound – peace. This track, like the rest of the Inventions album, allows you to either tune in or tune out. It can be […]

[INDIE/FOLK] Of Monsters And Men – “Crystals”

  Starting in with the catchy, heart-grabbing drumming that I’ve come to expect from, Of Monsters And Men, “Crystals”, is the first single from their second album, aptly titled Beneath The Skin. To this single I say bravo, it definitely got under my skin, in a tingly sort of way, leaving me curious for what […]

[TICKET GIVEAWAY] Earl Sweatshirt Releases Surprise Album + Catch Him Live In Chicago

  I’m officially starting to feel old. The youngest member of the eclectic Odd Future troupe is now of legal drinking age (like that’s stopped him in the past), and that can only mean that Earl Sweatshirt‘s live shows will be even more outrageous than in the past. Bursting onto the hip-hop scene circa 2011, […]
