[DARK INDIETRONICA] Hozier – Take Me To Church (TEEMID & Jasmine Thompson Edition) [FREE DOWNLOAD]


  My nose nuzzles into a field of your chest hair. Each hair like a UN peacekeeper, giving me asylum. They wrap their way around my face as I wrap my arms around a 40″ chest, legs around a 32″ waist. These hairs, as I nestle they carry me to refuge. Me, this refugee from […]



  What happens when two techno veterans put their twist on new indietronica talent? In the case of John Digweed and Nick Muir‘s new remix of Odesza‘s “All We Need,” it’s a mesmerizing and groovy ride through tech-y space and molten vocals.

  I wrote a letter to a friend. I’d just woken up from a coma. Literally. And I took this notebook I’d used when the tubes were down my throat to flash things in front of nurses like icechipsplease. icantbreathe. gottapeegottapeegottapee (kidding, catheter. lolz) because I wanted my hand to reclaim power. I wanted to […]

springworlds - featured

  We live in an age when– I’ll stop right there, because I hate when people claim a clean break of continuity with the past. “We live in a technological age,” “These days we’re busier than ever,” and so on. It’s lazy thinking. There’s always the past present with us; it’s never a clean rupture, […]
