Singer-songwriter mxmtoon finds beauty in the mundane on debut the masquerade

A mainline artery to her heart, mxmtoon exists to give voice to all the things that 19-year-old Maia keeps hidden behind the facade of her day-to-day life.

Blood Cultures Wish Us Well in “Best For You,” Announce New LP Due in September

At the heart of Blood Cultures’ new single, “Best For You,” is a lack of trust. Ironically, the band’s own manifesto preaches a vastly different message: to trust yourself. What’s that—a manifesto?
