COACHELLA: DAY 2

by Scott Iasillo Day 2, a day that really did not have the affirming promise of live acts as day 1 and day 3 gave me. With that said, I was extremely surprised at what I witnessed. Perhaps going into a music festival with no demanding expectations is the proper way to enjoy such a [...]

WEDNESDAY MINI-MIX

by rala Here’s a mini-sampler to get you through your hump day. Varied by genre, all these tracks have some movement to bust you out of any temporary web coma you might find yourself in. Whether it’s Balkan Beat Box remixed by RJD2, Hot Chip featuring Bonnie Prince Billy, or a warm alternate version of [...]

FISTFUL OF DOLLARS

by marisa brown Got some hot shit for you this edition of Fistful of Dollars, and no, that’s not an allusion to Hot Chip. A little disappointed in One Life Stand, I have to say. Single’s all right but the record feels so…slow.  And people, it’s cold, it’s dark, it’s miserable out, we do not [...]

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 29 (JAN 18 – 24)

by bmac No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful. If I should ever die, God forbid, let this by my epitaph: THE ONLY PROOF HE NEEDED FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD WAS MUSIC Kurt Vonnegut [...]

BIG DAY OUT IN SYDNEY

by eliza czander After a train ride that seemed to last a goddamn eternity, we finally arrived at the festival grounds for Sydney’s Big Day Out around 1 PM. I was noticing a theme on the way over, sandwiched between bikini tops and backpacks – Aussies get fucking tanked man. We thought we knew how [...]

NO BOOTS BIG ENOUGH FOR LITTLE BOOTS

by john cole After spinning multiple DJ sets and performing her own songs at this year’s CMJ Marathon in New York City, Little Boots, hailing from Blackpool, England just released her impressive debut Arecibo EP on November 18th.  The A-side includes “Stuck On Repeat,” a track title which aptly described my obsessive behavior towards the [...]

EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER PLAYS ON 10/4

by gil toza Yo I know that New York is show heavy and this barely qualifies as “news,” but do you realize the lineup you could fly through if you had a time machine, but were confined to NYC during the night hours of 7-12 this Saturday night? Hot Chip, Nick Cave, The Kills, Fleet [...]
