This is probably one of the most heartwarming things I’ve seen in quite some time. Coupled with the 70 degree days this week in February has brought to Maryland, I’m rolling on a surprisingly natural high right now. Read the rest of this entry »
I’m really proud of the work my Montreal compadres do on all the local news and show information. Unfortunately, as the lone Procrastinator trapped down here in the desolate Washington D.C area (note the capital P, because trust me, there’s quite a few regular procrastinators in the United States’ capital), I can’t really contribute the way the rest of the boys can. Instead, I attempt to make my mark through my (hopefully) clever writing, (probably not that) unique opinions, and over use of parentheses (funny, right?). Anyway, we’re looking to expand on some of the more original content in the weeks to come. Here’s a little taste of what we have to offer, in the form of an old piece Matty and I did on the inscrutable Hall and Oates. Read the rest of this entry »
For whatever reason, the (music) world seems to have forgotten that TV on the Radio were on top of the world just a couple years ago. After the releases of their albums Return to Cookie Mountain and Dear Science, they were generally placed on the same level of admiration and adoration as artists like the Arcade Fire, Sufjan Stevens, and all those other ever present critical darlings. And then, just like that, it seems, they were gone. Well, they’re back. Read the rest of this entry »
I looked through all of their songs in my Itunes and couldn’t come up with a better pun or poor clever turn of phrase for the title then the one I put up, so, live with it. If it’s any consolation, Jeff fucking Mangum is making the rare trek down from the cave which he likely inhabits up on a quiet mountain somewhere to grace us with a performance, both in my home, the lovely Garden State. The most noted hipster recluse since J.D. Salinger is performing at All Tomorrow’s Parties in Asbury Park on September 30, a festival curated by a specific band-in this case, the renowned trip hop group Portishead. He will also be playing a show shortly after, also in Asbury Park.

I’ve always enjoyed describing the very specific feeling I get from certain music. I don’t necessarily mean specific emotions, like “happy” or “mellow”. Some music just brings out weird, almost indescribable descriptions, like “blue” or “walking through the woods”. In honor of these feelings, we at this website are beginning what will hopefully be at least a semi-regular feature, creating and writing about a series of songs meant to be the soundtrack for a very specific scenario.

James Blake (this one, not this one) made a big splash in the electronic music scene with a series of EPs in the now long gone 2010. His first official album, aptly titled James Blake, is set for release in the motherland on February 7, and it’s definitely worth getting excited about.

I’ve always been a casual Gucci Mane fan, mainly because it’s occasionally refreshing to listen to someone who’s legitimately and obviously a complete idiot. Over the summer, I also got into the band DOM after hearing their summer banger “Living in America”, reading the main dude’s (is he Dom?) interview on Pitchfork, and catching their set at Coney Island’s Siren Music Festival. When the news circulated around the internet that Gucci and DOM were collaborating on a remix of the aforementioned track, Matty and I went nuts. Read the rest of this entry »
(We’re hard at work in the war room, making the big executive decisions, but we’re going to be back and better than ever in not time at all. Keep your eyes pealed.)
