Portugal. The Man – Purple Yellow Red Blue (Rambo Hollywood Remix)

“All I”  can imagine is that we have all had the same big realisations. The big “aha” we feel at various times in life. When you realise you need to get a job to eat. When you realise the amount of time someone was putting in to a project was nothing compared to what you were. […]

The 2 Bears – Be Strong

Some people tell you what to listen to, Spend the whole time saying this and that is cool, You got to follow your own mind and ears, And find a sound that stays inside your head for years. So sings Raf Rundell, lead singer of British duo The 2 Bears (his partner in crime is […]

Banks – Before I Ever Met You

A few nights ago, I was driving home from the airport. The 50-minute drive is one straight, flat highway through Oklahoma’s countryside. How does one survive a drive like that alone? Music, baby. I was all jazzed up from my trip to New Orleans (see what i did there?), where I was constantly exposed to sweet […]

Shaka Ponk — My Name Is Stain

I know you’re all feeling the darkness here today, but there’s no reason to give in. No matter what you’ve heard, this process will not take years. In my heart I know we cannot be defeated because there is an answer that will open the door. There is a way around this system. This is a […]

Mapei – Don’t Wait (The Driver Edit)

Cyrus wrote a post earlier this week about living in extremes, and I can’t help but feel like there’s something in the air that’s making us all somehow exist on the same wavelength in this month. It might be the Spring weather that teased us last weekend in New York, the following weeklong headache that ensued […]

Vok – Before

Part of the problem with being a music obsessive is occasionally (okay, all the time) overanalyzing. It’s too easy to be picky in the face of an endless stream of new music. If a song bothers me in even the slightest way, I may not give it another shot. This is, unequivocally, the wrong way […]

Put It On – Big L (J1K remix)

The people of London walk through the streets, never to look up at the sky which is littered with cranes and clouds and other peoples faces. Why would you look up for that. A solace can be found in the words of hip-hop here though. Maybe it’s something about the clouds, good match for the […]

Lana Del Rey – West Coast

Glamorous, classic and cinematic, Lana Del Rey absolutely crushed her Coachella set like nothing I’ve seen in my lifetime. It was retro future at it’s best. I’m starting to realize that Lana is just as much of a visual artist as she’s a singer. Every single detail and camera angle was flawless. The music was amazing […]

Du Tonc — Surging Memories

“The world is changing. If you want to understand the youth, listen to the music. This is what’s happening right underneath your nose.” —NAS We’re the kind of society that complains in the Summers about them being much too hot and us being way over them, and in the same year complain about our Winters—them […]
