Actress – Ghettoville Review

I find that I’ve personally found it hard to sit down and enjoy an album like I would with a book or a movie. It’s not something I believe is the same, as music can provide an overlying emotion on many aspects of our lives. It’s in our cars, while we walk, while we shop,Continue reading “Actress – Ghettoville Review”

Underground Mondays: Sound Strider – Intrepid Travels EP

Turntablism (if that’s a word) has come a long way since the release of it’s arguable epitome of Entroducing….. in 1996 Although that primarily fits in as a hip-hop record, it led the way for future acts such as Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, and even AraabMuzik. Now these latter musicians take a more electronic roots approach by usingContinue reading “Underground Mondays: Sound Strider – Intrepid Travels EP”

Tim Hecker – Virgins review

There’s already been a surprising amount of great electronic music released in 2013, and with the year wrapping up shortly, I’d like to bring up another release that stands out. Hailing from Vancouver, BC and taking his project to Montreal, Hecker has created a name for himself in the experimental music scene since his Imaginary Country releaseContinue reading “Tim Hecker – Virgins review”

Super sexy video for FKA twigs-Papi Pacify

As we grow as a human race  (I use that term very lightly), we are constantly redefining sex through music and with each generation, we seem to be getting closer to the heart of the matter. FKA twigs (affectionately named for the way her bones cracked?) is giving sexiness the much needed makeover it deservesContinue reading “Super sexy video for FKA twigs-Papi Pacify”

Jon Hopkins – Immunity Review

There’s always been a twist with progressive music. Whether metal, jazz, rock, or electronic, the term applies to any one of these genres. The word ‘progressive’ is defined by, “Happening or developing gradually or in stages; proceeding step by step.” I literally Googled the word and found the definition, and that’s what came up. ItContinue reading “Jon Hopkins – Immunity Review”

Synth duo “Math The Band” is high energy rock

At first Math The Band was just a Westford, Massachusetts kid named Kevin Steinhauser screwing around on his computer making funny songs on a program called Fruity Loops or FL Studio. I only discovered him because at the same time I was doing the same thing in a joke band called Laptop Revolution. The amazingContinue reading “Synth duo “Math The Band” is high energy rock”

The Haxan Cloak – Excavation Review

Music creates emotions. Whether its a sense of love, hate, sadness, or happiness, all music gives us a sense of what the artist is trying to create. Some are able to prevail these emotions better than others, but when the writing process comes to life, there is a theme that’s involved. Rarely do listeners goContinue reading “The Haxan Cloak – Excavation Review”

Atoms for Peace rock solid with Amok

How do I open up a paragraph about this group? There really isn’t much to say about the group, Atoms for Peace, when they have a lineup like this. The super-group originally consisted of Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Joey Waronker of Beck and R.E.M., Nigel Godrich who is aContinue reading “Atoms for Peace rock solid with Amok”

MS MR drops new video for “Fantasy” off their upcoming album Second Hand Rapture

Brooklyn based band MS MR (Ms.Vocals Lizzy Plapinger/Mr.Music Max Hershenow) has been one of those bands I’ve had my eye on since they dropped their hypnotic tune and equally hypnotic video “Hurricane” of their Candy Bar Creep Show EP back in July of 2012. The two have since signed a deal with SONY Records andContinue reading “MS MR drops new video for “Fantasy” off their upcoming album Second Hand Rapture”
