It doesn’t happen nearly often enough. That moment when you first hear a song, and you can’t fight the beginning of a smile.  Uplifting music has sort of become a lost art, at least to me.  I’m always searching for the next earth-shattering revelation, as if a song is going to help me understand the […]

Greetings fellow Sputnik users, The first month of 2018 proved to be a little slow for under-the-radar releases, as it typically is for any music in general.  When We Land’s Introvert’s Plight was a pleasant surprise, offering up a very consistent indie-rock record that contained moments of lush folk amidst more sprightly, upbeat melodies.  I initially gave […]

50-26  |  25-1   (25) Manchester Orchestra – “Lead, SD” A Black Mile to the Surface   Imagine the heart-wrenching emotional reach of a track like “Colly Strings”, only blasted through the sleek production of an album like Simple Math. This is Manchester Orchestra in peak form. –Sowing   (24) Lorde – “Hard Feelings/Loveless” Melodrama   2017 […]

50-26  |  25-1   (50) Frank Ocean – “Chanel” Chanel – Single   Frank’s been labeled (by me) a Modern Day James Joyce, 12 months ago, when “RAF” and “Slide” weren’t even a thing. Truthfully, he exceeds his own influences, and renders himself as his own auteur. “Chanel”, a song that juggles sexuality and 21 […]

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably done by now with the same tired-sounding retreads of Christmas classics.  That’s why, like Rudolph, I’m here to save the holiday with alternative versions of the tunes we all know and love (and a few originals).  This is just a brief 10-track, 35 minute collection that I spin every holiday […]
