  BRING HER BACK. Crystal Castles fans are a passionate bunch. This coming from a superfan that cried for 3 hours in a Bangkok internet cafe when they broke up last October. Heartbroken was not the proper adjective. I wrote this. And then I felt like the world was saying ‘untrust us’ and a knifed […]

 Last fall, Alice Glass suddenly announced via twitter that she would be breaking up with Crystal Castles “for a multitude of reasons, both professional and personal” to branch out as a solo artist.

[MONTHLY] Ghost Heart Gets Bedroom Eyes: Best Sounds 04. 2015 [FREE DOWNLOAD]


  PLAYLIST DESCRIPTION: When you put yourself back together. What did you think would happen? When you hammered all those pieces back into place.

[DARK DANCE] XYLØ – America (Vasta Remix) + Astrid – 2AM (Shagabond Remix)


  CANNOT RECOMMEND ALL THE OTHERS’ INSTAGRAM ENOUGH (PHOTO CREDIT). America, I’m never coming back. On a Delta flight to Tokyo, I paced my way up.down.around the sides of the body of the plane. Would have walked across tray tables like hands carrying me away from my seat. Locked myself in the bathroom instead. Over […]

  PHOTO CREDIT// ALL THE OTHERS 5 years of touching. I felt nothing. Your hand dances on my nipple. To guide me. Not to the promise land. Heaven has taken up shop in an entirely different bathouse altogether. I was there once. I lost it all to a man with no face. Rebirthed, I was. […]

[FUTURE/R&B] LION BABE – “Wonder Woman”

[FUTURE/R&B] LION BABE - "Wonder Woman"

  Combine the sexy female empowered vibe of Destiny’s Child, Survivor, with a sultry-smooth Erykah Badu tone, finished off with a head bopping Pharrell induced mood (who helped produce the track) and you have the new track by LION BABE, “Wonder Woman”. If you’re not familiar with LION BABE they are a male and female […]

[STATE OF SOUND] New Artists Soundcast #8: Supercharged Experimental Pop Edition


  STATE OF SOUND is coming out of a long hiatus. Months, if you will, while the writer was spending time literally trying not to die of cancer. Success, motherfuckers. STATE OF SOUND is a really special (to me!) Sights and Sounds feature where I select new electronically focused bands of stratospheric level quality that’ve […]

 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


  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 […]
