–Advertisement–SXSW 2012 pt. II I’m sorry. I meant to have more of these “articles” written throughout the week regaling all of my loyal readers with fantastical tales of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but I was busy. And I promise I was busy doing band things and not just indulging. To be completely honest… Continue Reading Broken Dreams and Chicken & Waffles
–Advertisement– Editor’s Note: Because we decided to wear our responsible small-business pants to work everyday for an entire year, we are not making the sojourn to SXSW. Perhaps next year when we have more writers, photographers, and multimedia people to cover such a carnival. Until then, we invited Jordan Bayhylle from DEERPEOPLE to give us… Continue Reading SXSW 2012 Pt. 1: Rocking The Saddest Block Party of All Time
There’s a Hitt Boy #4, 7 and 28. So what happened to all the others? Well, that’s for them to know, and for you to figure out. The Hitt Boyz are a post-rock, math rock outfit based in Oklahoma City. They play instrumental music listeners can groove to and songs about…your grandparents? “Think about… Continue Reading Musical Numbers: The Hitt Boyz

There’s a lot of personal bias that could turn someone off listening to any given song, much less keep them sticking around to hear a whole album. I’m not any different. I know what I like and what I don’t like. But there are times I just want to be surprised by something new. Mostly… Continue Reading Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – What’s In A Name Anyway?
Face it. You only wish the band names you thought up in 7th grade were as cool as Chrome Pony. Steven Battles, also known as Chrome Pony, is a self-described crooner/composer who hails from Norman, OK. Chrome Pony will likely be an experience for anyone going to the 2012 SXSW Music festival, but fair warning:… Continue Reading Chrome Pony Has Three Speeds

There is a SXSW Send Off show for DEERPEOPLE, Horse Thief, Shi++y/Awesome, and… Continue Reading SUITE 204 #1: The New Music Podcast
I must be feeling hand-in-chin nostalgic to subtly, or maybe not so subtly, reference an old Teresa Brewer song with the title of this post. That said, my omnivorous ears have done a little foraging over the past few days. Which albums and songs did they go all “nom-nom-nom” on through the… Continue Reading Music! Music! Music!
Artist: Robert Glasper Experiment Album: Black Radio Label: Blue Note Release Date: Feb. 28th Rating: 5/5 (Disclaimer: I must admit that I have a bias for socially conscious rap and experimental jazz.) My musical interests vary. From The Gaslamp Killer to Cocorosie, I really do enjoy listening to a coalescence of sound that changes the… Continue Reading Robert Glasper Experiment: Black Radio
It is perhaps too strong to say that I was not stoked to attend the body positive feminist art and poetry show last night. I at least knew that there would be cupcakes, which is an immediate and obvious improvement over the hummus and pita platters that characterized the living room poetry of the mid-1990s.… Continue Reading Mariposa=Butterfly=Awesome
