If you thought 1993 was a good year, take another look at 1985. Back to the Future was the highest grossing movie at the box office, and Chrysler had just turned Grandma’s grocery getter into a menacing torque monster. We had Nintendo, New Coke, the Cold War and lost Route 66. What a time to […]
A couple of electro pop weirdos based out of Tacoma, Washington called “Clay Beds” make their recording debut on Hush Hush Records with thick beats, ambient undertones and washed out vocals. At only six tracks, this cassette only release is densely packed with intricate sound layers spanning R&B, hip hop, dream pop, and rock. It’s […]
The debut album from Canadian DJ and producer Jayda Guy on Ninja Tune is smooth downtempo dance music for any crowd. Actual orca recordings followed by an arrangement of string instruments on “Orca’s Reprise” is a beautifully sad piece that underscores the artists interest in biology and conservationism. Preserving the natural world is a theme […]

In 2019 alone, the 48-year-old has worked with Robyn, The Lonely Island, Jenny Lewis, and Cage the Elephant. With his 14th album on the horizon, Beck has returned with a new single, “Saw […]
Much like the ocean tides that their name suggests, Circa Waves are going with the flow. Shifting away from their usual guitar-centric sound, the band chose to embrace elements of pop, in turn, escaping the trap of monotony that an indie rock band might find themselves in by their third album. After re-discovering an old […]
On Arms Akimbo’s new EP Seven Dollar Paycheck, the band taps into the post-emo garage rock, a genre at its apex when the members met at Loyola Marymount University. Having opened for bands like Walk the Moon, The Animals, and Said the Whale, much of the record focuses on the duality of being a touring […]
