As I peruse a sea of December release e-mails looking for last minute entries before I lock down my top 2014 lists for all eternity, the words “Hand Job Academy” caught my attention. Just hearing the name, my first reaction before pressing “play” was “WTF?” but after peeping “Pop (Tumblr Bitches)”, the warped lyrics made me smile and this dope BK hip-hop/trap trio comprised of Clara Bizna$$, Ash Wednesday and Uncle Meg won me over. Touring the UK and garnering nationwide buzz around Thanksgiving after Taylor Swift filmed the actual Lena Dunham dancing to “Lena Dunham”, the #ikeamonkey’s loose. Tackling topics like Aunt Flo, the ridic pics you find on Tumblr (yes, we’ve all seen them) and sex school plus opening for comedians Sasheer Zamata and Gilbert Gottfried leaves no doubt their catchy, odd songs are infectious.

tUnE-yArDs’ “Riotroit” at Sonos Studio

posted December 13th, 2014 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, General Interest, Live Show Reviews | 0


Wedged between a gig at The Wiltern and a TV appearance on Conan’s late night talk show, tUnE-yArDs visited Sonos Studio for an intimate show as an intergalactic quintet. Continuing Pandora’s string of memorable sponsored events in 2014, loop pedals captured Merrill Garbus’ hard, infectious drum beats and several part harmonies filling the air, with the crowd making it inside (the line was quite long) lucky to witness the futuristic synth five (with three additional members joining the duo) in action.

Interview: The Pack A.D.’s Maya Miller

posted December 9th, 2014 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, Interviews | 0


As the days drift away in what’s left of a diverse 2014 musical year, one of my fav releases (‘Do Not Engage’) that stood out from “The Pack” came from this Vancity punk pair. Flying high with “Airborne” and “Rocket” space themes and addressing loner obsessions in “Stalking is Normal”, DNE provides raw, real rock at its finest. Hitting the road again to deliver their trademark vibrant and high energy mosh-filled stage shows, they’re currently traversing their frosty homeland with The Tokyo Police Club and Said The Whale this month. I recently connected with one half of The Pack A.D. north of the border duo, drummer Maya Miller on a tour stop to amusingly discuss annoying “women in rock” questions, touring books in briefcases, the possibility of Diplo and Jay-Z collabos and what we’d be surprised to know.
