King Krule: Not Your Average Alternative Artist

Every now and then a musical artist comes along who completely rocks your world and turns everything you thought you knew about music upside down. For me, that artist was King Krule.

Slow Crush’s Hush: Reinventing The Dreamscape

Let Slow Crush lead your dreams through a highway of a beautifully built progression of sounds. With Hush as their single – an excellent choice for a single, indeed – they make their way to the spotlight in the genre.

A Post-Rock Classic Twenty Years On: Looking Back at Sigur Rós’ ( )

All in all, ( ) is an epic piece of work. As amazing as all of their records are, I have to rate this as my favorite. A must-listen for everyone.

Unlimited Love: Boredom Birthed Via Overwrought Nostalgia

Some things are better left dead, and buried. The past is one of those things, and for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, that age-old adage rings painfully true.

Watch Kurt Vile’s Moves, He is Still Onto Something
