Tash Sultana continues to amaze with new track “Murder To The Mind”

Gahdem! This new Tash Sultana track “Murder To The Mind” is straight up fierce. From its smooth soul to that riveting guitar solo, Sultana has upped the ante with “Murder To The Mind.” The track opens with a sound that reminds of early Erykah Badu. Sultana’s vocals are soft and alluring at first, but they […]

Stream Lana Del Rey’s new song “Lust For Life” ft. The Weeknd (it’s an instant eye roll)

Lana Del Rey has revealed the title track off her forthcoming album Lust For Life featuring The Weeknd. We gave the song a few spins and just couldn’t get down with it… To be quite honest, it’s pretty boring. There’s no unique structure to it. Like many Del Rey songs, it’s straight from the pop […]

Are Our Gods Best? Ruminating on Emay’s New LP, Ilah

Often we treat records as developments to an artist’s career or a response to their previous work. It’s become a game of would-you-rather: Contra or Vampire Weekend? Visions or Art Angels?

Los Angeles duo KOLARS drop fresh debut album — it’s a must-listen

After catching Los Angeles act KOLARS open up for Smoke Season at the Echoplex, we kinda fell in love with this badass husband and wife duo.

Hair-raisingly haunting, Charlotte OC makes her debut with Careless People

There exists a bit of a trope in music that deals with the haunting wails of a generously ranged vocalist singing over blackened synths, eerie atmospherics, and those tell-tale drum machine claps. A few names immediately come to mind: Lykke Li, Phantogram, Lapsley, etc. Every one of them very much different than the other, but […]

An Interview with Crystal Fighters: using music to fuse differences in an ever polarizing world

  Words: Steven Ward Boasting an original story worthy of its own television miniseries, folktronica band Crystal Fighters owes its very name and early inspirations to the unfinished opera penned by vocalist Laure Stockley’s grandfather in the last years of his life. Recovered by Stockley when cleaning out her grandfather’s reclusive home in the Basque countryside, […]
