20 years on, New York dream pop outfit Blonde Redhead continues to boldly do whatever the Hell they want in their confoundingly delectable way.
Their newest album, “Barragan“, picks up where their gorgeous 2010 release “Penny Sparkle“ left off.
That is to say, they’re still finding new and intriguing ways to artfully explore a slow, gossamer version of a sound that has made household names of artists …

Alright, I’ll admit it; the first time I heard “Club Goin Up On A Tuesday” by iLoveMakonnen a few weeks ago, I didn’t quite know what to make of it.
The beat by Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin with its whirring church organs and beatdown bass was undeniably on point, but Makonnen’s quirky delivery threw me for a loop.
Then, one night, having not heard heard …

The Black Madonna: Artist You Should Know

Posted September 4, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 992 views]
blackmadonna

As aliases go, I can’t quite think of a better, more awesome name than The Black Madonna.
Evocative in a dozen different ways, it befits Chicago DJ/Producer Marea Stamper.
Apart from being that rarest of mythical creatures, “a woman DJ/producer” she also just actually happens to do it better than most (regardless of gender.) Her style rips through a whole spectrum of sounds from disco to techno to house with …

Four Songs You Should Hear Right Now: The Drums, Odesza, Robert Plant, Redinho

Posted September 4, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,816 views]
The Drums

The Drums – “Kiss Me Again”
The Drums have consistently released great music since they first came on our radar in 2009. They’ve always had a surf-pop vibe but, on their latest single, their love for bands like Joy Division comes through.
Singer Jonny Pierce has us hooked with the infectious “Kiss Me Again”. It will be on their forthcoming album “Encyclodpedia”, out later this month.

ODESZA …

Jamie-Lee-Curtis

Very rarely do I care about the personal lives of celebrities, but I’ve always wondered about Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest.
Such an interesting pairing of incredibly talented people.
I finally got to hear how they met when Jamie joined us as a Guest DJ this week.
The story goes that she was flipping through the issue of Rolling Stone with Cyndi Lauper on the cover …

Sinkane: Artist You Should Know

sinkane

I knew next to nothing about Sinkane before Labor Day weekend started.
I’d casually heard a few songs on our airwaves and saw his name on our charts, but it wasn’t until I dug in that I realized what I had been missing.
I had a few hours to kill during a leisurely vacation in Colorado and streamed “Mean Love”, his latest release out this week …

Joel Hood: Artist You Should Know

Hailing from North Yorkshire, producer Joel Hood creates blissfully melancholic electronic pop that is both as big as a sunset and personal as a whisper. His work sounds like the work of a person who listened to nothing but Air France for months, because he did. The CD got stuck in his car player and what was probably initially really frustrating became an immersive experience …
