Five Poems: Christopher Savage

Five Poems: Christopher Savage

One of the more exciting parts of putting together each print edition is getting to sort through the submissions in awe of the creatives we share our small section of the universe with. One of the more disappointing parts is having to narrow down those submissions to fit within the...

Nick Allison and the Players Lounge – Album Release | Tour Dates

There was a time when this band would have been solid simply by making noise here beside us as a word of mouth, "have you heard them yet," experience. Their hushed confidence was born for it yet now they stand as one of the last buoys of hope, a reminder...

Andrew Cashen - "Frank Sinatra's Yacht"

Andrew Cashen – “Frank Sinatra’s Yacht”

Kerouacian in the finest most brilliant sense, "Frank Sinatra's Yacht" reads somewhere between coming down out of the mountain in Desolation Angels and saying goodbye to the mice in Big Sur; every line, every note owning us as Andrew Cashen cries out to eternity, "what I do now next? Chop wood?."

Gooch Palms – New Single “Are We Wasted?” – SXSW 2019 – Tour Dates

Gooch Palms new single "Are We Wasted?" further solidifies our suspicions towards the Aussie tradition of baking up tasty snacks that are the perfect blend of colorful sweetness we somehow manage to look cooler by eating. Something weird has been going on down in Australia for a while now, something is up we can...

Album Review:  Harlem Puts Us To Sleep With Oh Boy

Album Review: Harlem Puts Us To Sleep With Oh Boy

Had this been their first album it would have been fine, a stepping stone not so much listened to by anyone but still exists in the background, a reminder of where they came from. As an album this far into the game, as something they have arrived at, Oh Boy sounds about as good as...

Fanclub: All The Same EP and Instagram Takeover! By Jay Armstrong   I meant every word I said back in August gushing over Fanclub. What I did not know then, even in the light of such positive feelings, is how much getting their latest six songs would hit when playing it. This All The Same...

Missing Pages: Long Way Down and a Love Letter To Stephen Svacina

Willy Vanilla – “American Neck”

Willy Vanilla – “American Neck” By Jay Armstrong Willy Vanilla’s American Neck is lighthearted as hell. If only talent were allowed to speak in a space devoid of ego-maniacal ambitions more often.

Borzoi’s “Big Pink”

Bandcamp || Facebook || Instagram   In today’s bombardment of social media and endless clicking and scrolling, creativity often gets lost amidst the mass of noise, apparently missing its mark if it’s not promoted while it’s hot.

Arthur Moon’s Single “Standing Wave”

Website || Facebook || Instagram Photography: Lissy Elle Photography   Excitingly disjointed and pleasingly jarring, Arthur Moon first caught my ear with her track “Room” off her 2017 EP, Our Head. Consistently experimental in her technique, award-winning composer/singer Lora-Faye Åshuvud constructs dynamic and moody textures, presenting a refreshing spin on electronic-pop.
