With, in Pearl Charles fashion, a breezy twang to boot. I may be stepping on our resident twang expert Amber’s toes here but this album deserves

New Music Flavor – Dante Elephante “Mid-Century Modern Romance”

I am a bit partial to Ruben Zarate (the human behind Dante Elephante) since we share the same hometown, but don’t let my bias fool you, Mid-Century Modern Romance is a must listen no matter where you’re from. The title of the album heavily prepares you for what you’re about to hear and experience, everything

Hello and welcome! Here we are two weeks into 2021 (even though it feels like it’s already been several months) with a new entry of the Tuesday Time Machine: January of 2013.

Finally my immense knowledge of antipiracy is useful for the blog: King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard shares torrents to their masters

I was reading the antipiracy trades for my other job which has literally never yielded any useful music-related information, until NOW.

Gotta clear those samples Nicki! This is one of those behind the scenes things you don’t think about, but that can seriously hinder a project. A great example of this is Cartoons and Cereal by Kendrick Lamar, that song was supposed to

I’ve been taking a little vacation from indie music, so here’s my top ten musical theater songs of all time

I did the last playlist update in December and took a little break (sorry to all of the Twitter and Instagram submissions I have yet to get to, I will, I promise). Well, kind of a break. I spent most of my so called break putting together my top 50 tracks of 2020 playlist (blog
