New Music Flavor – Juno Francis “Oyster Love”

Today, the world welcomes Oyster Love with open arms – the new EP baby from retro-esque duo Juno Francis (Angelica Ranåsen and Jacob Fagerstå). Self described as “the lovechild of a 60s gentleman and an 80s lady”, this Berlin based duo first caught my ears on Instagram with their track “Queen’s Anthem”, which yes, I

Metal in the Morning – Ulver’s “Russian Doll”

Ulver is one of my favorite bands in part because they are always evolving and refuse to be pigeon-holed. Their early records in the 90’s such as “Bergtatt” are atmospheric black metal but through the years, they’ve quickly shifted gears into new (yet organic) territory on each subsequent release. 2017’s masterful “The Assassination of Julius

New Music Flavor – Magic Bronson “I Don’t Know Man”

Honestly man, I don’t know either….but this track is pretty dope. Magic Bronson, an LA based indie duo, are unsurprisingly playful and quirky – staples that seem to be crucial to all acts under Handwritten Records.

Admittedly, the first track out of the gate isn’t particularly “metal” but I suspect many fans of the genre will know and respect this artist. Plus, this is just a damn good

Shoes by Jonah Yano and how my friends don’t respect me

So this song is absolutely gorgeous. At least I think, it’s half in Japanese (kind of like me) and I only speak a little Japanese but it sounds pretty gorg to me. You’ll get the whole story from watching the video, but the summary is that Jonah Yano went to Japan to see his father

Interviews with Unknown Artists presents Josh Dominguez: Air It Out (1/4)

The final notes ring out, as Josh Dominguez’s concluding moments of his latest single, Air It Out, quiets the buzz and clamor of the Peppermint Club crowd.  A spell was cast through the track’s confluence of honest candor and lounge jazz, allowing for a moment of silence amongst the audience as Josh delivers the song’s

Watch: Interview with LoneMoon, Luna, and Plasticman

We were fortunate to have an in-depth interview with LoneMoon about her just-released AOTY contender kit@Nai (pronounced kitanai like dirty in Japanese). Here’s what’s up. This album came largely in part from a bad year for LoneMoon, a year full of people bringing her down, some deceptively shallow relationships, and to paraphrase in my own
