Do Enjoy, I’m really happy with it. More to come in the form of a brand new album in 2017.
Photography by folk singer Kaitlin Rose, she just released a new record called The Other Side; its a lovely album. Days filled with creative shares, snapshots of these magical moments in a life somewhere, out there. Social media on this level is a great thing.
I’ve been a fan of Detroit Native Daniel Timlin for over a decade. My hope is we get to share these special drawings regularly. Timlin splits his time between Chicago and Detroit doing odd jobs, drawing, and perusing the local fare to inspire, and of course his famous cheap beer and grilled meat parties. A humble entity, yet uniquely gifted as a human, and of course a brilliant Artist.
We owe it to ourselves to make the press realize we’re not little pawns in a “soundtrack for your life” factory. We’re artists, and you shouldn’t get to treat the sounds like ketchup for your french fries. We owe it to the music to stop making our material so widely available for free. The business of music is fake, it doesn’t get much clearer. You have to pay to play, period. The new paradigm is quite disgusting and its killing me a little. Making me wanna be a flower on an empty hill.
Make it Fit (Salt Lake City) is releasing new DJ mixes regularly and playing out like a monster, largely sticking to his ever growing vinyl collection. In todays standard of “auto sync” that should be widely appreciated. Stay Tuned for his schedule in the SLC area and the West Coast. And don’t miss his monthly residency at the Red Door, SLC.
Chicago Producer, and DJ, Adam Stolz just released his new mix, Building Impressions. If you’re into House or Techno music it doesn’t get much better than my boys taste in Dance Music. I’m currently working on a new album with him under the name Hot Butter Lunch. The recordings sound so dope. Hopefully we release later this year. Stay way tuned!
Soft colors, sprinkled through a valley of gray nature. From the tinges of southern rock mostly tucked behind a hazy neo-folk sound. He’s opened a window to modernity for the sake of relevancy and creativity, and that spark is now fire. Matt’s currently touring the East Tennessee area in support of Take Me Home.
About six months ago I started having this reoccurring image of my cousin Nick, dancing with a smirk on his face. He would always get that look like he knew he was on fire. These days that’s all I see when I think of him. And I see him more than ever. His face, handsome like a youth parade, pops like glitches.
I just released the new single “Sweet Hazy” for the Nomadic Firs project. I resisted for years linking this site and my own creative endeavors, but its become clear thats silly on my part. Back in October Mystic Color Faze hit the web. The new single is off that 36 track (B sides) album. Special thanks to Ann Milner for backup vocals.
Big Ears did something fantastical. They organized a concept that starts from a nonconformist mentality. How can you institutionalize experimentation? Tame art with few limits on exploration? AC Entertainment for one weekend tamed the beast, they housed mad scientific magic, without any explosions. All while allowing room for the city to be a part of its wonders.
A lovely cerebral indie flick, the kind with long shots, pondering moments that witnesses the characters self-doubt, or profound discovery.
Like watching street lights above your head, as you drive through the inner city in your old neighborhood. As if to say, I’m home and I remember what happens here, I’m looking for it again.
The Orange Apples have released a new record filled with whimsical flourishes, carpet ride pop thats layered with a large swath of the weird. The new album, Monster Mega Mother Fucker Hit Album came out quietly in October, but a set of decent speakers will reveal the magnitude of creativity from this band.
This album will have you seeing fireworks in your living room. While the records sprinkling you like vinyl dust, tracks like “Kella” blast you away with an 80’s style Pop vocal that swirls time changing wonder dreams on the kit. They just cross you up, check the track “Better Weather” for your weird west coast off kilter thing.
Lovely painted pieces that fit without gaps to this risky, and refreshing music. Its more or less great IDM that incorporates some true blue sounding organic instruments. Spectacularly explorative over all else.
