[CONCERT/PHOTO RECAP] See You In The Pit: The Black Mass Tour

[CONCERT/PHOTO RECAP] See You In The Pit: The Black Mass Tour

  The most beautiful thing that can ever happen at a show is when you go in with absolutely no expectations whatsoever. And while I am huge fan of some of the bands I saw on this particular night, I was blown away by the experience I had when I went to the Black Mass […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Born Gold- Until You Heal

BORNGOLD2

  I was to start this year at war.  I swore I needed it. Really.  It’s been Baghdad inside me, at least since the year genocide donned a cocktail mask and rode bombs into the downtown core cooing ‘Don’t mind me, I’m freeeedom!’. 2003. Fuck.  A whole generation of baby memories grew up in that time […]

[FESTIVAL PREVIEW/PLAYLIST] Life Is Beautiful 2014: The Artists You Can't Miss

  This weekend, Life is Beautiful returns to Vegas with all the grills, guitars, and gusto.

[MIX SERIES] ALAYA – ALAYA. ISSUE 01 [FREE DOWNLOAD]

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 […]

[DARK POP] Real Lies – North Circular (Local Hero Remix)

fggg

  Solitude sinks its teeth into my stomach. It’s got me twisted up in knots, shooting glances at my gut–not trusting it knows how to get me back to humanity.  So, I pacify it with whiskey.  Shot after shot across every bar stool I can find in Thailand.  And I sit in silence and stare […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Little Daylight- My Life (Golden Pony Remix) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

Little-Daylight-My-Life-2014

  It’s my life, but I couldn’t let anyone in it even if I tried. I’m always the asshole, the one bad link in a daisy chain that grows arms and starts cutting at all the linkages to his left and right until he’s blowing around in the wind. I don’t really care if I […]

Light-Painting-Fashion-dresses-5

  STATE OF SOUND is a feature on The Sights and Sounds where we select new electronically focused bands/artists (either Soundcloud/Facebook followers < 3000) and bring their best songs to light. Getting traction on blogs can be a pain in the ass if you don’t already have a connection in, but we happen to think […]

[DARK POP] Flight Facilities-Two Bodies feat. Emma Louise (HNNY REMIX)

flight-facilities-two-bodies-feat-emma-louise-official-video-youtube_thumb

 Just because we’re fucking doesn’t mean it’s some exhilarating experience. It doesn’t mean I’m just waiting for the cumshot either so our time together can start to circle the drain. This misnomer that when we touch it’s a rush of endorphins is inane. Sex as electricity or some shit. We’re two humans, two bodies with histories […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Young & Sick- Ghost Of A Chance (Act!on Mix)

Young-Sick-album-cover-608x608

  Only here to watch you slay me. Moonlight shines through onto that little space on the floor in the kitchen where you first made me cum. I can look down at it now, here as I prepare for battle, and smirk. I remember the ways our bodies practically melted together into the oak floor. I […]
