HEY QT // K-POP

K-Pop is really hard to get into. The sound requires a specific, high energy, super sweet ear that is okay with high fructose beats entering their brain. That requires a very specific type of listener, which is not me. It isn’t many people, really. It’s the same audience that probably drinks Go Girl as if it […]

FANTASTIC // PSYCHEDELIC DESERT DRIVE MUSIC

When I pressed PLAY to listen to FANTASTIC’s new single, I wasn’t sure where I was going to go with it.  It took me on a sound scape of mountains being gently kissed by the sunrise of pink and purple scented clouds just as the last bit of essence of the night sky disintegrated into the morning dew. […]

A NEW CHARLIE & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY // I WANT MY CHILDHOOD BACK

Some things just make me depressed. I have no specific reasoning for said sadness but I watch them or see them or hear them and they make me sad. The feeling isn’t of despair but instead something similar to the end of a Sunday, when you know an inevitable bummer is coming—and there is no […]
