An Interview with POND: the enormity of outerspace, whiskey and jokes

You wouldn’t be able to tell that POND considers their band a tongue-in-cheek affair if you just listened to their music. Throughout their six-year run they have made some of the hardest hitting psych-rock to come out of Australia. Touching on influences as far reaching as AC/DC and Outkast (with some Bowie sprinkled in for […]

Album Preview: Damien Rice’s “My Favourite Faded Fantasy” gets the Rick Rubin treatment

Something as powerful and emotionally taxing as Damien Rice’s first new material in eight years shouldn’t be something that you can access via Spotify. It just feels wrong. Don’t get me wrong, I love Spotify. It is one of the only unnecessary bills I pay monthly. But Rice’s single “I Don’t Want to Change You” […]

Thundercat takes FYF Fest on a bass-filled adventure

Los Angeles-based bass guitar extraordinaire, Thundercat’s FYF Fest set was filled with incredible solos on Sunday later afternoon, but the former Suicidal Tendencies member showed there is much, much more to him than the metal stylings of his former band.
