BRASSICA_CIVIL_MUSIC_BY_DAN_WILTON_2000-2

Mysteriously named after the cruciferous genus of plants that give us cabbages and mustard greens, UK producer Michael Anthony Wright creates smart, emotive House as Brassica.
The classically-trained musician has spent the last few years deejaying, playing in bands, performing with the London Sinfonetta, remixing a slew of amazing artists and creating custom software as a foundation for his original series of EPs for the Civil …

shamir

Shamir (Bailey) is a 19-year-old, wilfully androgynous singer/songwriter/burgeoning dance music producer hailing from North Las Vegas.
Why has the music world not been completely consumed by this guy?
Granted, niche media is perhaps at it’s peak right now, and chances are that whatever weird thing that speaks directly to you will be represented somehow, somewhere (and almost certainly in the form of song). Your options for …

Joesph Arthur

On May 13, 2014 prolific artist Joseph Arthur released his first album on the Vanguard Record label, though perhaps not the record he initially imagined.
The release, titled “Lou: The Songs Of Lou Reed” is a collection of cover songs performed solo, stripped away, pulled apart and generally re-imagined as a way to remember his late friend and mentor who suddenly passed away on October …

The time for ghosts, ghouls and sexy anything & everything is here.
Ahhh yes… Halloween.
Of the “holidays” or celebrations, Halloween is one of the few, much like Christmas, that actually has a soundtrack.
For me, my playlists are peppered with tons of great music of the macabre.
Oingo Boingo, The Cramps, The Misfits, Rocky Horror cast recordings, and any other eerie sounding bands that inspire the candy …

jennyandjonny

Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice aka Jenny and Johnny are one of my favorite musicals couples because they are both ultra-talented and compliment each other so well.
We recently recorded a live session with Jenny around her latest solo album “The Voyager” (airing on Monday, 11/3) and seeing Johnathan behind the scenes, clearly providing off stage support, made me want to revisit their session in …

ghost_culture_photo_2014-445x356

Always under the excellent curatorial tutelage of Erol Alkan, UK based record label Phantasy has been around for 7 years but has hit it’s stride in the last 3 years.
Between the rise of wavy space cowboys Connan Mockasin and Daniel Avery, banging solo work by Chemical Brother Tom Rowlands, and Alkan’s own foray into producing original work…Phantasy is doing the damn thing.
And with the recent announcement of a full length …
