[420 PLAYLIST] The Sights And Sounds Picks Their Favorite Stoner Tracks

  Happy 4/20 everyone! The only date in the calender year where everyone who doesn’t smoke weed claims to and we all go along with it. National Stoner Day, as it’s infamously touted, April 20th has become a counterculture holiday that is celebrated in a haze of glory the world over. Shit, I’m celebrating right […]

[ELECTRO/SOUL] Gramatik ft. Raekwon and Orlando Napier – “Native Son” (Free Download)

Gramatik Coachella_zpsyiuojjml

  Late nights are nothing new to me. I’ve long since made friends with the moon and the stars shine to illuminate my desktop. The world moves a little slower at night and Earth’s vibrations slip under their covers and settle into a deeper rhythmic syncopation. Naturally I need my music to follow suit. I’ll […]

[CONCERT RECAP] The Abbey Hosts Kinetik Groove, Stylust Beats, Kaminanda & Vibesquad

kinetik groove

  It was my first time at The Abbey; don’t be fooled by the look of the Irish pub. I couldn’t fathom the idea of an electronic concert being held at this venue. Fuck was I wrong. Walking up to the entrance there was line of youngsters crowding into the street. Doors opened at 10:30 […]

[HOUSE/INDIETRONICA] – LEO ISLO – FEELINGS

leo-islo-feelings-artwork

  We’re no stranger to sharing the amazing, genre-bending dance tracks that come out of Los Angeles Music Project, known to locals and aliens-alike as L.A.M.P. They’ve really been bringing the heat this year. With weekly mixes, DJ sets, and exclusive premieres from emerging producers and DJs in the game, there’s no stopping this train. […]

[CHILL/ELECTRONICA] Inventions – “Escapers”

Inventions-band-2015

  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/PSYCH/SURF] The New Investors – “Atun”

Atun cover2

  It’s getting warmer and the mood is changing. It can be felt all around. As the seasons change and people spend more time outdoors, there is a certain energy outside and between people. The perfect backdrop for such a picture can only be done by blasting some of The New Investors, one of my […]

[ELECTRONIC/TROPICAL] Autograf – “Dream”

AutografDreamDrawing

  Chasing your dream is hard as shit. Don’t let anyone fool you, going off on your own and working to create something in this world is not easy – if it were then no one would hate waking up and going to their 9-5. This sentiment is extremely poignant for me today, as I […]

[AMBIENT/EXPERIMENTAL] Benoît Pioulard – ‘Sonnet’ Album Review

Screen Shot 2015-03-03 at 12.43.12 PM

  Sometimes the cliche “got what it takes” doesn’t even approach your doubts: what if you have no idea what it takes in the first place? What if your target was wrong altogether, and all this invested time has now been squandered? You throw back a few bourbons, if you’re me, decide you’re a multifaceted […]

[ELECTRO POP] For Esme – Just Yet

10633710_857022817670834_8900284910683643628_o

  It’s not pretty a damsel in distress, don’t let me, romanticize the mess. Detached says the rustling of the voice behind me as I struggle with last nights inventory, it’s not the first time I hear that accusation. I feel the burning of his eyes on the curve beneath my back begging me to stay, […]

[INDIE ELECTRONICA] Kat Vinter – Sooner or Later

kat vinter 2

  I am a million pieces, I don’t know. How to put them back together; even though, I tried every combination, but never got it right. The azure name tag around my neck burns from 8 to 5 telling me to focus on my mission, Colgate didn’t win the morning war against Grey Goose and […]
