MUSIC ON, WORLD OFF: Thoughts Of The Random Kind

Random thoughts… The Emmys happened last night: shows and people won, other shows and other people lost. Not really sure about the details but, if you really care, go HERE. You know that we’ve entered a brave and weird as fuck new world when Insane Clown Posse Juggalos outnumber pro-Trump supporters when both decide to march on Washington, DC. Moving […]

Cobi Opens The Door With Songs From the Ashes (Pt. 1) EP

There is much to appreciate about Cobi, the least of which is his grasp of symbolism. “Songs From the Ashes (Pt. 1) is an introduction to the album to come. As a symbol of purification, ash is the essence that remains when all else burns away.” he explains. As introductions go, we’ve heard far, far worse, because – as introductions […]

Some days you wake up and find that the gods and goddesses of rock and roll are smiling their asses off. First Foo Fighters announce that their upcoming new album, Concrete and Gold, is due out on September 15th. Cool. We’re into it and all of the rock guitar goodness that will come with. But they had to push the […]

Carrying On The Memory of Chris Cornell With Photofantasm

At this point in time, many¬†are still at a loss with the loss of Chris Cornell and that is more than understandable. The best that I could do in editorial form manifested in the piece¬†Euphoric Mourning. Because music and loving it is such a personal act, every music fan of a band or an artist has a very particular and […]
