ALAYA

  A distant land where the rivers of rhythm never run dry and the melodies in the wind are only the most soulful and powerful. That’s where I want to be. Where the combination of noises are vibrant with life, with tone, with volume. Luckily, this place exists and we’re going to take a sonic […]

logo_2014_sls

  Crafted by James Kabat and Kavi S. Still nursing hangovers from Lolla, Chicago is about descend in droves upon West Loop’s Union Park. Well, maybe descend is too strong a verb.

  There’s nothing worse than being in the middle of a hot and heavy petting session late at night, things moving toward the bedroom, when your “sexy jams” playlist throws a curve ball at you, shattering the moment with an acoustic version of “Wonderwall”. It was the last time I left Pandora to make the […]

  There are two things that will get me to scroll right on by in my Soundcloud feed, the song an already distant fading image having acid poured on it by my desperate photographic memory: love songs and Coldplay.
