  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 […]

[INDIE/FOLK] Of Monsters And Men – “Crystals”

[INDIE/FOLK] Of Monsters And Men - "Crystals"

  Starting in with the catchy, heart-grabbing drumming that I’ve come to expect from, Of Monsters And Men, “Crystals”, is the first single from their second album, aptly titled Beneath The Skin. To this single I say bravo, it definitely got under my skin, in a tingly sort of way, leaving me curious for what […]

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 […]

[MONTHLY] #PostCatastrophe– Best Sounds 03.2015 [FREE DOWNLOAD]

#PostCatastrophe

  Photo credit, Peter De Potter. So you didn’t die. Chemo didn’t kill you. Cancer didn’t carve off your head and place it on its mantle. Hooray. Beaucoup jazz hands clouding your vision. A marching band is about to parade into your bedroom and give you an orgy. You’re going to run across that finish […]

[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 […]

[FOLK/ROCK] Mumford & Sons – “Believe”

[FOLK/ROCK] Mumford & Sons - "Believe"

  “I want to believe you. I really do.” I lied straight to her face as I wished I was anywhere but here – a million miles from this behemoth of an awkward situation. The truth is I could care less. Some small part of me wanted to want to believe, and as the actors […]

  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 […]

[INDIE/ELECTRONICA] Who The Hell Is Karma Fields?

finalart

  Debuting an artist can take months of build up and Internet buzz. It’s always a risk and there’s always a chance it will fail. What Monstercat has done with Karma Fields is really impressive, and it seems the label has been able to build this buzz over night, but…who the hell IS Karma Fields? […]
