Music On, World Off: Feeling Seen

With the horror that has occurred in Christchurch, New Zealand, it’s been a harsh 24 hours and I hope that everyone has taken a moment to acknowledge the extraordinary loss, recognize its cause and demand better from your fellow man and woman. As for the music, yes I’ve updated my Spotify MUSIC ON, WORLD OFF playlist and while it seems […]

Music On World Off: Rad Masters

Welcome to the first Music Monday of 2019, lovelies! What’s good? Well, since you asked… Let’s get into a shiny, new and updated MUSIC ON, WORLD OFF Spotify playlist because I’m unsure who’s brainiac idea it’s been to get all remix-y on Bob Dylan of late, but the latest incarnation is the “Masters of War – SherGun Remix” and damned if […]

5 Albums You May Have Missed: 2018

Jesus H. Christ, what a shit show of a year. Not musically, folks. No, musically, we were fine and thank God for that because between drowning in the abyss of political news sewage and the faith-in-humanity crushing fucktard/orange beanbag that resides in Washington DC (still at a loss as to how many boneheads voted for that), glimmers of hope were […]

A Not So “Bad Twin” & Living That SLUGS Life At The Echo

Marrisa Longstreet calls “Bad Twin” – SLUGS’ very first single – an “incorrect label” and one that adds to the song’s already present tension. “‘Bad’ vs ‘misunderstood’ is a common theme on the EP.” Longstreet added. Composed of Longstreet (vox/guitar), Sarsten Noice (bass/vox), Josh Beavers (guitar), and Dash Hutton (drums) the Los Angeles quartet are currently smack dab in the […]

Portugal. The Man Are Coming For You, Los Angeles: You’re Welcome

It only took about 14 years for Wasilla, Alaska’s Portugal. The Man to become the badass overnight music sensations that they are but, in the end, it works out for the best for all involved. No, really, it does. In November of 2017, I stood backstage at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles and watched Portugal. The Man take […]
