I was a teenager in the 90’s so it’s safe to say I was part of the generation most impacted by Nirvana’s music. I never idolized Kurt Cobain, but I knew a lot of people who did.
His life has been picked apart in books, movies and more over the years, but I can’t imagine any of them got as close to him as Director …

We hosted longtime favorites like Beck, Pixies, David Gray and Roseanne Cash and the live radio debuts of …

After 25 years of grinding, Minneapolis’ underground hip-hop kings, Atmosphere have proven against all odds, that survival (and relevance) in (or outside) the game is absolutely possible, if not …

The LA-via-DC group first caught my attention through their consistently great stream of free releases on Soundcloud, each one wildly different from the last, but always super catchy.

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 …
