New Music - Blue Jean Queen Explodes Our Hearts With "Wild Wild Woman"

New Music – Blue Jean Queen Explodes Our Hearts With “Wild Wild Woman”

Between Stevie Nicks on "Edge of Seventeen" and Deana Carter with "Strawberry Wine," now there is an equal which somehow manages to draw comparisons to both at the same time. "Wild Wild Woman" is powerful, perfect, and rises into the realm of greatness by transcending forever beyond the person who created it to represent a...
Album Review - Half Dream - Monsters of Needing

Album Review – Half Dream – Monsters of Needing

Monsters of Needing comes in voicing an introspective grasping of one's own anchored soul by the weighted center of life whose ever-presence has always been known but never embraced and, at best, vaguely named.
New Video(s): Lord Friday the 13th - "Bigots Beware"

New Video(s): Lord Friday the 13th – “Bigots Beware”

Marking the first single from their Irrational Anthem EP, Lord Friday the 13th are celebrating with the release of THREE(!) videos for "Bigots Beware." Hey, with this extra time on our collective hands, at least they are putting it to good use. All we have been doing is refusing to put on pants while watching...

Album Review: Frankie and the Witch Fingers – Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters…

Once everyone has settled into a spot around the backyard, toss out a square to everyone and get the jawing out of the way waiting for those eyelids to get a bit heavy, those feet to get even heavier. Vibe.
Ten Essential Horror Films We Love To Watch Over and Over

Ten Essential Horror Films We Love To Watch Over and Over

"Horror films are meant to be cathartic, we put ourselves through the terror as a means of symbolically overcoming something we're afraid of."
Singled Out: ISS - "Too Punk For Heavy Metal"

Singled Out: ISS – “Too Punk For Heavy Metal”

Singled Out ISS – “Too Punk For Heavy Metal” by Jay Armstrong There are maybe four bands giving me feels beyond pacified as of late. ISS are one of them. Working on the review for the new Spits album, this forty-five  Total Punk Records put out in June is what I find myself playing on...

New Video: Loteria - "Rhythm Revue"

New Video: Loteria – “Rhythm Revue”

For those who might be unfamiliar; when someone says "Austin music," either with acute awareness or down on the collective subconscious level, they are talking about Loteria. 
New Video: Dena Hope - "Stay"

New Video: Dena Hope – “Stay”

Mentally synth. Viscerally glam. Dena Hope's video for "Stay" is one hundred percent pop in as comfortable and relaxed sense possible. It is all looks and lighting on this Samara Simpson directed experience.
New Video: Calliope Musicals - "Color/Sweat"

New Video: Calliope Musicals – “Color/Sweat”

As with the 2019 album in which this is the title track from, we witness here yet another moment where Calliope Musicals prove to us they have an acute grasp on their collective output; stunning us by their growth and intriguing us along with their familiarity. Truly the band, their music, and this Jerry Sparkman...

Happy Birthday Seth Gibbs: A Tribute Album

Happy Birthday Seth Gibbs: A Tribute Album

If what we create in life were to be more than a whispered glimpse of our true selves, we would rejoice in contentment looking back at our lives having done even a third of what Seth Gibbs did. Boldly broken with the absolute honesty of one working through the darkness in search of their better...
New Video: Flower Graves - "Ociin"

New Video: Flower Graves – “Ociin”

I see Sheila Vand in that scene of perfection; all stylized and rhythmic, imagining had A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night been made six years later. She places the record on to fill the silence and space, love is precarious after all, possibly this could have been the song washing over the uncertainty between...

Exploration, Optimism & Fashion: An Interview With Jackson Montgomery Schwartz

....to exist creatively in a way which inspires those around him to aim not high with their ambitions but instead to look within themselves to embrace the joy which comes through finding an artistic vessel worth pouring oneself into again and again on the path of self-exploration forevermore is as beautiful as the work Schwartz...

Mixtape Monday: Holy Sex by JXNART

In anticipation of our featured interview with Jackson Montgomery (JXNART) coming out tomorrow, we asked if he would be up to put together a playlist for us this week as well. With usual optimistic energy Jackson said yes. We love it! Hopefully, you do as well!

Artist Spotlight: Virginia (Vajaja) Meza

Artist Spotlight: Virginia (Vajaja) Meza

Meza's paintings are centered on familiarity while bathing the viewer in invoked emotion. One piece can be heavy, another whimsically optimistic; all are alive and memorable in a naturalistic expression of the best kind.
Album Review: Sailor Poon - Sailor Poon's First Album

Album Review: Sailor Poon – Sailor Poon’s First Album

Immediate, upfront, hitting perfectly the notes of reminder the band everyone fell in love still retains the perfect balance from when their gang first took over these streets; facetious cynicism crafted with acute skill.
New Music: Kay Odyssey - "No Birds Sing"

New Music: Kay Odyssey – “No Birds Sing”

So maybe you were thinking this mood to put on some Mazzy Star in your search for self-motivation while floating across the sea of emotional confusion called for something more of the moment; escapist memories made attached to something of your own. Kay Odyssey cries out from the wilderness for you to do just that—near...
New Music Video: The Sour Notes - "Peak"

New Music Video: The Sour Notes – “Peak”

The Sour Notes continue earning believers with their heads down and hearts full. Their latest single"Peak" has a warmly fitting video directed by everyone's favorite familiar face Matzoh Ball to go with it, sending home completely the Slanted and Enchanted post-Go-Betweens aesthetic they have embodied since moment one. For all those thirsty for the beautifully...
Album Review: Andrew Cashen - Guava Jazz

Album Review: Andrew Cashen – Guava Jazz

This album is about as jazzy as Morrisey's personality is tolerable but on the scale of listenable it leans decidedly more towards "highly" than it does "Jethro Tull." We recommend putting it on repeat while going toes up in some sunshine for a few hours, it was meant for being stuck at home looking for...
Punk Rock Aerobics by Hilken Mancini

Punk Rock Aerobics by Hilken Mancini

Strap on your ankle sweatband, run that cassette adapter between your audio output and that boombox, and let's get sweating to something your mom's zoom instructor would never have the spine to do.
New Video: Louisianna Purchase - "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"

New Video: Louisianna Purchase – “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Fresh, inventive, inspiring; no one has hit the fashion world with the passionate, affecting, force of Jackson Montgomery (JXNART) in as long as our eyes have been looking to its lighthouse to keep us from crashing onto the tired shores of ανιαρός.
New Video: Dry Guy - "Something To Do"

New Video: Dry Guy – “Something To Do”

Disaffected. Restless. Malcontent. If the collective unconscious had a talent beyond stoking the coals beneath our neurosis and honing in on the malaise of our be-here-now reality—learning bass perhaps, possibly figuring out how to structure a few minutes of noise—then no doubt in this foul-year-of-our-lord-Lemmy, "Something To Do," the quarantine inspired video from Dry Guy,...
Mixtape Monday: Coronuhhhhh

Mixtape Monday: Coronuhhhhh

After keeping our heads down for a few weeks while learning to cope with our current reality, here is a mixtape of songs which have stood out along the way either lifting us up or introspectively settling in an oddly fitting way. Do what you can to try staying positive. Remember we are going through...
New Music: Billy King and the Bad Bad Bad - "Tiger's Den"

New Music: Billy King and the Bad Bad Bad – “Tiger’s Den”

Billy King and the Bad Bad Bad are not a band solely hyping us on where they are, nor is it the unexpected notable progress we feel from them at every show played, it is where they are going getting us excited to be in proximity of what they are doing.
Mixtape Monday: Desert Island Playlist

Mixtape Monday: Desert Island Playlist

Coffee in hand. Watching my neighbors from the back window, "so it just rained and they are running the sprinkler...while mowing the yard.... as one kid screams in the corner and two others jump on the trampoline. Guess it's do-whatever-you-want day next door." This is what the quarantine has come to. If music can't save...
Artist Spotlight: "Bloom" by Brat Baby Beauty

Artist Spotlight: “Bloom” by Brat Baby Beauty

I began this project wanting to show off the incredibly creative people whose work I love. To come up with a comfortable place where we could be vulnerable together, a place where we could speak openly about our dreams and excitement for the future. Hopefully, there, in that place, we would create something truthful, reflecting...
Artist Spotlight: Cyril Ely & Anatoly Pavlov

Artist Spotlight: Cyril Ely & Anatoly Pavlov

Using photo manipulation Russia’s Cyril Ely and Anatoly Pavlov create white empty spots and corruption with the use of a heat lamp to transform their photographs. On this Illume project, there is an equal balance between chaotic destruction and the crisp emotive truth of black and white film. You can find more of their work...

New Music: Country Legend Roky Moon – “Choo Choo”

It seemed impossible to love Roky Moon any more than we already did. We were wrong.
Artist Spotlight: Yuka Kobayashi

Artist Spotlight: Yuka Kobayashi

Abstract in a Brakhage sense with defined simplicity of underlying confusion, Yuka Kobayashi (aka St. Discipline) has a ghostly presence of future and past speaking directly to the unsureness of our place, her place, in the now. Originally from Tokyo, currently creating in Berlin, Kobayashi's voice through the breadth of her work carries a warm...
Mixtape Monday: SXSW SPIRIT

Mixtape Monday: SXSW SPIRIT

"Don't ask me why I obsessively look to rock 'n' roll bands for some kind of model for a better society... I guess I glimpsed something beautiful in a flashbulb moment once, and perhaps mistaking it for a prophecy have been seeking its fulfillment ever since. And perhaps that nothing else in the world ever...
New Music Video: Holy Wave - "I'm Not Living in the Past Anymore"

New Music Video: Holy Wave – “I’m Not Living in the Past Anymore”

...nails their simplistic aesthetic in craft while still feeling orgiastic in creativity. Basically, business as usual for this band who have been around just long enough to start being grandfathered in as the torchbearers of the Austin ideology.
New Single: Half Dream - "Strange Lover"

New Single: Half Dream – “Strange Lover”

As if experiencing intimacy were not already a heavy confusing mess of emotions, "Strange Lover"—the new single from Half Dream—is a humble crying out to the wilderness of introspection. Where sadness and nostalgia is often reserved solely for the looking back while optimism and positivity come in looking forward, there is that moment which lies...

Artist Spotlight: Alex Paradox

New Music Video: Lo Country - "Black Cloud"

New Music Video: Lo Country – “Black Cloud”

Lo Country have been keeping their heads down for far too long, this first bite out of their upcoming full-length definitely has us interested. Then again, anyone who has spent ten minutes around Lo Country in the flesh already knows they are about the nicest buncha dropouts you could kick dirt with which should already...
New Single: Cafe Racer - "Faces"

New Single: Cafe Racer – “Faces”

Like digging boxes out of the closet and finding that leather jacket we thought lost all winter, slipping this one on makes for a good walk around the block with the cool comfort of familiarity. One can imagine "Faces" representing the band turning down the sheets for us to climb into bed with them; I...

Love Begins With Self-Love (10 Steps Toward Positive Change)

Love yourself, you are worth it! Love yourself for who you are. Love yourself for what you have been through. Love yourself for who you will become....Love is a language. How long and how much effort would it take you to learn Dutch? Nothing in life is easy. If going to the grocery store and...
Album Review: Attic Ted - "Kafka Dreaming"

Album Review: Attic Ted – “Kafka Dreaming”

Kafka Dreaming is a love letter to the possibilities of defining one's own boundaries over succumbing to expectations; even if those expectations are self-imposed. This album is a testament of the distance covered and growth felt on their journey.

Video Premier: Pelican Johnny - "Givin' Up On You"

Video Premier: Pelican Johnny – “Givin’ Up On You”

Shot straight to tape by Andy Gately, the new video for Pelican Johnny's "Givin' Up On You" is a visceral slice of hot n ready nineties reverence. The single itself is a solid balance between the sounds he often finds himself swaying between making it as good of song as any at allowing those new...
Justin Waters Takes On the 2020 Oscars

Justin Waters Takes On the 2020 Oscars

Are we so limited that we cannot simply love two separate movies? Sometimes I feel like watching The Godfather. Sometimes I feel like watching Predator. Oh, one of them has an Oscar? Guess I am the idiot for finding both great in their own way. Thank god someone was there to tell me which was...
New Music Video: The Sun Machine - "Drugs"

New Music Video: The Sun Machine – “Drugs”

"Drugs" from their upcoming Schizo Pop, is resigned in all the good ways. A vibe over dance massaging of the same nerves as "Higher" from The Memories. This fitting lighthearted video was directed by Chandler Jowell.

Film Review: Color Out of Space

Film Review: Color Out of Space

Color Out of Space is as much the defining statement of progression in the sci-fi realm as it is a nostalgic walk through the greatest moments of eighties horror. After thirty years of near-silence, Richard Stanley returns to the screen with a brave, bold, risk of a film which is nothing short of genius. Not...
Mixtape Monday: Bearclaw's Stash by Alex Barclay

Mixtape Monday: Bearclaw’s Stash by Alex Barclay

This week we asked Alex Barclay of Texas Psychedelia to put together the mixtape. Those of you unfamiliar; Texas Psychedelia began as a communal space online for those in this corner of the world to dig the shared taste in music and culture of a certain vibe. It has quickly grown beyond that becoming a...
