Don’t you know your creator is running out of ideas

In Choice Cuts, Song Reviews, Worldwide on March 24, 2011 at 4:43 pm

The AV Club always does a great job with their interviews, getting people to talk about what inspires them in a way never comes off as pretentious. Good things (in fact, sometimes great things) have come from these interviews. Their recent interview with Kurt Vile, who’s becoming one of my favorite artists of late, turned me on to an awesome song by Bert Jansch called ‘Poison’. Read the rest of this entry »

What We’ve Been Neglecting To Tell You

In Choice Cuts, Gigs, Montréal, Song Reviews, Worldwide on February 14, 2011 at 1:34 pm

Get ready.

I’ve been snowed-under (get it?) in work lately. Or at the very least, buried in what I should be doing.

Yesterday I stumbled upon Earl Sweatshirt’s old (and out of character) blog. My fellow Odd Future devotee read that, and one upped me with Tyler’s old blog. Read the rest of this entry »
