What We Talk About When We Talk About Fischerspooner

fischerspooner

Earlier this week writer Tricia Romano wrote a piece for Red Bull Music Academy chronicling the surreal rise of early aughts artpop phenomenon Fischerspooner.
It’s a dizzying trip to down memory lane to a pre-9/11 New York art and music scene that I remember fondly experiencing from several hours away in Philadelphia.
A portrait of the dawn of the digital age rubbing up against the end of the analog …

I’ve always been particularly drawn to how, of any of the art forms, music has the ability to coexist and expand upon the other arts, from the visual to the literary to the cinematic.  And for me this is one of the great pleasures of our Guest DJ series. 
Getting to understand how music affects and influences non-music-based artists is always enlightening, whether their …

Nick Hakim: Artist You Should Know

Nick-Hakim-main

I don’t like “neo-soul.”
Not because I don’t think it can’t be as good as “traditional” “soul” or “RnB,” but rather because as a genre, as a name/label, it’s just mad goofy to me.
I mean, I understand the concept and the reason for it, but honestly, it’s just wordplay, like “grass-fed” beef or how everything is suddenly “organic,” even if it’s not.
You know it. You can feel it. New or …

Shelby Lynne by Jeremiah Garcia

Jamestown Revival have been on the road all year, touring behind their debut full length.
With stops at Bonnaroo and other big festivals under their belt, it was time the adopted Angelenos (native Texans) brought the show back home.
Instead of being road weary, they seemed thrilled to be on stage and their energy was contagious.
There were a bunch of fans in the crowd singing along …

Audego: Artist You Should Know

Posted July 28, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,544 views]
audego

About a year ago, I discovered a future soul duo based in Melbourne called Audego.
I was immediately seduced by Carolyn’s airy, ethereal vocals & the beat heavy, progressive production courtesy of Pasobionic.
Audego’s music is nostalgic yet contemporary.
The duo clearly has taken cues from early 90′s R&B from the likes of Aaliyah and En Vogue and infused those styles with modern sounds as you would …

I’ve been a fan of New Zealand-based duo Electric Wire Hustle for some time.
I can’t quite put a time stamp on it, but it was definitely before the release of their self-titled 2010 debut release.
The minute I got my hands on the album, it was on repeat every Monday night.
This was a band that captured synths, sexy bass lines and vocals that just consoled …

Seekae – Test & Recognise (Flume Re-work)
In a fairly short period of time, Australian beatmaker Flume has established himself as one of the most consistently exciting artists in electronic music.
I was already a fan of his work, but seeing Flume’s energetic live set at FYF Fest last year made me a true believer.
There’s definitely a “Flume sound” but it’s a spectrum: he can lay …
