Video: Ka - Off the Record

I'm sure this video resonates with those that received their introduction to quintessential nineties rap through vinyl records and tape decks. My first rap album was Puff Daddy's No Way Out, on CD (fml), and it's a shame to Read more

Marmalakes - Dolores

I was in bed reading the The Movie Goer by Walker Percy the other night when "Dolores" came up on a recent playlist I made. I had to put down the American classic and listen a little closer to Chase Weinacht's Read more

Bon Iver – Holocene [The 14th Minute Edit]

On by NBICKLE.E In Remix X Mashup | comment  

No matter where I am in the world, I almost always find myself in the midst of anxious reflection on Friday afternoons. The world slows down, as if urging me to take a step back. To process my thoughts and let the emotions settle in.

Bon Iver – “Woods” (Japanese Wallpaper Remix)

I don’t think I’ve ever posted about anyone younger than the 15-year-old Gab Strum, or Japanese Wallpaper, from Melbourne, Australia. In an email to me Gab wrote, “I don’t really know where I’m going with this music or what I want it to be, it’s just kind of music that I’d want to sit around my room and have looped for hours.” Cool. That sounds like the kind of music I want to listen to as well. Have a listen to Gab’s Bon Iver Remix and check out more of Japanese Wallpaper’s electo/ambient sound over at bandcamp.

Slowing down for a minute while the Wales newcomer Osian Rhys gives a little folk remedy to my soul. His forthcoming EP Long Time Gone should make for a good cry. I’m thinking a more acoustic Bon Iver tear up type set. Who doesn’t love getting sad and eating cupcakes with their computer? I do. We’ve been through a lot, my Macbook and I.
