Bottle Rock 2015 Artist Spotlight – Mother Mother

Mother Mother is Bottle Rock 2015’s anti-Arcade Fire. And that’s a good thing. I’m just as into Arcade Fire as any other music fan, maybe more, maybe not. Who knows, I dig them just fine, whatever....

Bottle Rock 2015 Artist Spotlight – The Brothers Comatose

Here in San Francisco everyone knows someone who’s got some sort of tech business stuff happening right now. Meetings are being made with venture capitalists in warehouse lofts, people are blogging about clouds acquiring other clouds,...

Death Grips – Jenny Death

You want to talk about Death Grips? Sure. Why not? Fuckit. Let’s talk about Death Grips because lord knows there’s nothing else to talk about other than these insouciant actionists and their willfully convoluted narrative of...

Mother Mother is Bottle Rock 2015’s anti-Arcade Fire. And that’s a good thing. I’m just as into Arcade Fire as any other music fan, maybe more, maybe not. Who knows, I dig them just fine, whatever. But I do think that maybe it’s time for a different group of Canadians...

Let’s talk about Death Grips because lord knows there’s nothing else to talk about other than these insouciant actionists and their willfully convoluted narrative of filth, riches, fashion, acclaim, assholishness, suicide, resurrection, bondage, domination, cut-up Sea Org theory, synaesthetic...

Fred Thomas – All Are Saved

Fred Thomas – All Are Saved

This weekend, they will bury my dog in Phoenicia. At the very least, they will scatter her ashes along the soft creek that runs behind Humminbird Lane with her should-have-been Labrador lover, Larry and her would-have-been tripedal cat nemesis, Jackie-Do.
