Underground Mondays: James Parenti

There’s always a subtle bit of emotion that goes along with simplicity. It’s a mixture of being able to get lost in the music, or the concentration is transferred over to the body of music and it’s purpose. We subconsciously dissect music to fit our state of mind, making connections to either help us orContinue reading “Underground Mondays: James Parenti”

Melt Yourself Down – Self-Titled Review

When dance music comes to mind, punk rock and jazz generally isn’t the first to make the list of ideas. The UK band, Melt Yourself Down, does just that. Their full-length self-titled debut off the leaf label stands out among the recent releases of music. It’s hard to pin them down to one genre, butContinue reading “Melt Yourself Down – Self-Titled Review”

Underground Mondays: Urr – The Endless Riddles of Sky and Earth

When Dylan Carlson wrote the first notes to his defining album, Earth 2, for his band Earth, I wonder some days what was going through his mind. For anyone unaware, Earth 2 is arguably the heaviest, deepest, darkest guitar album ever written. It’s minimal and droning structure scares off listeners within seconds, and lucky for me IContinue reading “Underground Mondays: Urr – The Endless Riddles of Sky and Earth”

Another groundbreaking remix of Mezo’s “Connected” by DJ MICRO

You may have already seen this track in a past post, but the beautiful track “Connected” by Mezo has just received a complete makeover by electronic artist, Micro. This remix distributed by Dank on his label Funky Element Records , is extremely kick-ass and is steadily climbing the Beatport charts. The track begins as a regularContinue reading “Another groundbreaking remix of Mezo’s “Connected” by DJ MICRO”

MITNG’S Videos of the Week

Deerhoof-Breakup Songs Looking like outtakes from M. Knight Shyamalan’s The Village ,this strange group of images does nothing to reinforce the songs message, but instead takes you on a primeval journey to the 1700’s for some plague-like goings on. It’s an interesting song that needed an interesting video and boy did we get one. MykkiContinue reading “MITNG’S Videos of the Week”

Deafheaven – Sunbather Review

I wasn’t going to do it. The need for me to bring up this album was huge, but I felt so cliché and predictable doing it. I know even attempting to stand apart from others and mentioning this album was impossible. I don’t know if it was the fact that it’s hugely anticipated, or thatContinue reading “Deafheaven – Sunbather Review”

Underground Mondays: Throwback to No Wave with Rosa Yemen

Ironically, a genre that takes so much out of music is on the rise again with influence. No Wave was a short lived art scene out of the dirt cheap New York City downtown. It originated with the rise of constant drug use and visual art growing in the New York downtown area, and withContinue reading “Underground Mondays: Throwback to No Wave with Rosa Yemen”

MITNG’S Videos of the Week

KATE BOY- THE WAY WE ARE This group really is one of those matches made in heaven. With Kate Hurst on vocals and Swedish song writing/production team Rocket Boy (Hampus Nordgren Hemlin, Oskar Sikow Engström, and Markus Dextegen) backing her up, I use that term lightly, Kate Boy continues to astound. Seems they are goodContinue reading “MITNG’S Videos of the Week”

Streetlight Manifesto’s latest album is solid but is not without controversy

Streetlight Manifesto had let me down with their previous release “99 songs of the revolution” which was a compilation of covers that at most seemed forced. To put it lightly I wasn’t very impressed.. so when I heard about the release of “The Hands That Thieve“, a full length original album which was supposed toContinue reading “Streetlight Manifesto’s latest album is solid but is not without controversy”

Underground Mondays: Chase Aden

When a pop star is created, it seems like all integrity of the artist is lost. The internet ends up hating him or her, although their chart topping singles contradict the overall dislike of the said musician. Canada is renown for creating the arguably most hated and loved musician of our time, Just Bieber. They’reContinue reading “Underground Mondays: Chase Aden”
