WATCH! Bully Rock the Bolts Off a Rotor Ride in “Trying”

WATCH! Bully Rock the Bolts Off a Rotor Ride in “Trying”

Oh, man. I remember this one summer in Maine, my girlfriend’s little brother convinced her and and I to get on a rotor ride at some dumpster fire of an amusement park by the shore. They called it the GRAVITRON! and it was pretty much totally terrifying (though not near...

WATCH! The Geometric Unraveling of the Third Eye in Black Wing’s “My Body Betrayed Me”

WATCH! The Geometric Unraveling of the Third Eye in Black Wing’s “My Body Betrayed Me”

Dan Barrett is Dan Barrett is Dan Barrett is Dan Barrett and there are a whole lot of rabid little bedroom lunatics (like me) who hear the name and quiver with anticipation at whatever’s coming next from the elusive Connecticutian. Once a hardcore heathen, he then became half of the...

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – The High Country

We’re in that brief frame of year – between tank top and flu seasons – when New York doesn’t feel like such a terrible place to live. The sun shines long and bright and the hateful, hateful cold is just shaking loose from our bones so we can forget all...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – Bishop Nehru

We all know I don’t know from hip hop except for what Kwame tells me and the Death Bomb Arc frenzy and B L A C K I E and Ratking and the bleak art noise insurgency because I am a man who has consistently finds himself lacking in both...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – Strand of Oaks

Sometimes, early in the morning, when the coffee’s first stirring its kicks in my prick there’ll be something on the radio that isn’t all somber condescension or doom-laden post-gender leftist political invectives. One day, it was Strand of Oaks and the sound was so fresh and flamboyantly exhilarated on it’s...

Bottle Rock Napa – Day 2 – 2015

Bottle Rock Napa – Day 2 – 2015

The second day at a music festival is always the best, right? After the initial burst of Day 1 anticipation, Day 2 is the day to forget about all of your prior obligations and embrace your personal version of hedonism. Day 2 at the music festival is the day to...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – The Picturebooks

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – The Picturebooks

Dipped-down, stripped-put, dirty, dirty methane blues pumped up on gasoline and cooled over with sun-sweetened amphetamines, The Picturebooks are the band you want when your teeth are sore and your mind his hungry for the narcotic future or, you know, you’re just so fucking blisteringly hungover nothing makes sense in...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – Charlotte OC

You know who’s awesome? Annie fucking Lennox. And yet, we never really talk about her like we do Patti Smith or Grace Jones or any of the other venerated sirens of postmodern androgynous inspiration and that’s a fucking sin because her prowess is STILL astounding and her influence infinitely wider....

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – J. Roddy Watson & the Business

I wasn’t shit-faced yet when we saw J. Roddy Watson & the Business play Willie Nelson’s ranch but I was damn close when I dragged Danny and Aimee from the shoreline ease to see the last few songs of their set in Philly opening for the ‘Mats recently so I...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – White Lung

No one does the whirlwind quite like White Lung and that definitely makes them the odd ducks of the Gov Ball Lineup but I have a sneaking suspicion they couldn’t really give a good, gut fuck because they know that they’ll do more to slack the jaws of the pretty...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – Charli XCX

Listening, I know most folks won’t need me to sell them a load of crushing on Charli XCX (who pretty much MADE every hell-yes party jam of the last few summers) but I’m going to anyway because I never get to talk about Charli XCX in these pages and that’s...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – Priory

Sometimes neon pop does a man good. Sometimes, it’s all he needs – frankly – to get out of his day job funk and homespun routine and out into the world like it’s all just one big, fat aphrodisiac begging to be turned into stories worth telling over and over...
