Adventures in Modern Mixology: Chapter 1

An excuse to talk about a bunch of awesome music I’ve started listening to in the past month, or a philosophical deconstruction of mix-making, playlisting, and the plight of the modern music fan? No, it’s the first one. From Ray LaMontagne, Michael Jackson, and British boy bands to lesser known upstarts like Alvvays, The Colourist, and Kishi Bashi, this could be the beginning of a beautiful mix-ship…

Who The Hell Is…Michael Kiwanuka?

The recent success of artists like Adele and Mumford & Sons has created a lane for artists who have a classic sound but are a little off the beaten path, sound-wise.

If I’d compare Michael to anyone, I’d say he’s got a little bit of Bill Withers mixed with an […]

Of Montreal, False Priest (Polyvinyl) Crazy, crazy shit. Of Montreal’s latest album sounds like “Sign o’ the Times”-era Prince meeting Frank Zappa in a dark alley and taking lots and lots (and lots) of drugs. With assistance from left-leaning R&B vocalists like Solange and Janelle Monae, the indie-rock collective made 2010’s most delightfully eclectic album. […]
