anne ma

 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

tumblr_n10b4vrNUQ1rezuleo1_500

  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)

screen-shot-2015-03-23-at-12-26-59-pm

  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

Cover photo

  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 […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA/HIP HOP] Grimes- Realiti // Nosaj Thing- Cold Stares

ignacio2

 Cold stares. Laptop LED lights make light of the moment. You are dead. They illuminate our four eyes off heart monitors, IV bags, bars.bars.bars.so.many.fucking.bars making up this bed, windows that look out to lower Sukumvhit as it shines back. Back into eyes of cold stares. We’ll leer over the edges of death Not always the […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Doldrums-Loops

  Flip an 8 on its side. Infinity love. A goddamn numerical Hallmark card. I’ll always skate drunkenly back to you. Even if the ice melts. It’s the fucking physics of love. In Vietnam the 8 is lucky. Bastard number, taunting me. Present everywhere, a visual aid for karma. No matter what happens, it’ll all […]

[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 […]

  2:15AM. I got myself out of bed. I didn’t want to die. Was already. I’d put on these clothes to cover my skeleton. Bones covering a whole lot of nothing. And I’d bike to work. Each pedal. Each half a kilometre. I exhaled my skeleton. Into the void. I’d throw it up, right out […]
