Friday, March 4th, 2016 Artist: So Long Forgotten (facebook) (twitter) (bandcamp) Track: “Marahute” The irony that I’d given up on ever hearing anything new from a band named “So Long Forgotten” is not lost on me. The band’s last full-length release was issued in 2009 – nearly 7 years ago. Now, nearly 3 years after launching […]

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016 Artist: M83 Track: “Do It, Try It” It’s the year 2016, and everyone knows of M83.  With their breakthrough record having come in 2008 with Saturdays=Youth, it has seemingly been nothing but constant ascension for this bunch, culminating in the massive double record Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.  For the first time since 2011, we’re faced […]

There are a lot of different preferences and approaches when it comes to interviews, both when conducting the interview and when putting it all on paper. My approach is all about letting the artist speak their mind, and in as much detail as they wish. That’s also why my interviews tend to be on the […]

I’ve been mulling a review of David Bowie’s most recent album, Blackstar, which, if you’re reading this, no doubt you’ve realized was released mere days before his passing on January 10th. He died in peace, surrounded by family, so we’re told by his publicist. Could there be a better way to go for a man who […]


I’ve occasionally come across a particular notion in the music community that the more we listen to the more we build expectations, higher and higher until the bar’s raised unattainably high and we in turn forget what it’s like for that threshold to be met in the first place. I’ve never explicitly agreed with this thought because […]

From an editorial standpoint, the Year-End features are a lot of fun, despite the hectic scheduling and frenetic coordinating necessary to ensure we meet our [perpetually-malleable] deadlines. This is especially true for the Users’ Year-End list, which requires me to rely on the site’s contributing contingent to create the blurbs that complement each album in the feature. […]


I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found late December/early January to be a dead zone for music.  Aside from a few stray finds, it’s typically just a time for me to reflect upon the previous year, look at others’ year-end favorites, and see if I can augment my musical collection with their discoveries.
