Live Review: Touché and Lucius at The Echo

Few can argue it’s always awesome when two of your favorite new acts combine forces to do a show together. After getting to interview psych synch pop band Touché earlier this year and Jess Wolfe of the retro indie pop Brooklynites Lucius back in 2012, when I heard about this show, I was pumped. Selling […]

Interview: Jazztronik

During one particularly lazy weekend summer afternoon, I felt the need to casually virtually “dig in the crates”. That day, “in a sentimental jazz mood” yet again, I found Japanese Jazztronik’s mix of jazz, disco and house with soul and Latin influences fascinating. Fronted by pianist mastermind Ryota Nozaki, this producer’s collection of tracks on […]

Interview: Egyptian Lover

In honor of #tbt (Throwback Thursday), it’s only appropriate to bring up the name, Egyptian Lover. A legendary producer, artist and DJ, getting recent props being named one of the “top LA producers in history”, he’s frequently been called “the West Coast’s answer to Afrika Bambaataa”. Developing a rep for rocking crowds of thousands across […]

Releases: Trying to Conceptualize

The concept album shows ambition by an artist when making a record. The beginnings of making concept albums in rock’n’roll goes back to the Beatles in the 1960s with Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. There the band didn’t go all the way in stringing the songs together with a theme. The first two tracks are […]

Interview: Riot Mike

I can’t think of many other things that are cooler than being able to go around with “Riot Mike” on your business card. OK, being the man behind one of this year’s most talked-about music events is pretty awesome too. His full name is Michael A. Petryshyn, and he has been Riot Fest’s main organizer […]

Live: Souls of Mischief ’93 Still Infinity Tour at El Rey

Recently getting to chat with The Souls of Mischief, a crucial component to the prolific and historic Hieroglyphics crew, I followed up this amazing experience up by peeping their LA stop on their 50 city 93 Til’ Infinity 20th Anniversary tour on Friday. Hearing during our interview that so far on the tour, they’d noticed […]

Contest: Win Riot Fest Toronto Tickets! (CLOSED)

Toronto has already experienced flooding and tornado warnings in 2013, but thankfully no riots…that is until the weekend of August 24th and 25th. Historic Fort York will be an appropriate battleground for Riot Fest, the music equivalent of an over the top battle royal – Unfortunately, there’s no wrestling like there will be in Chicago and […]

Newsted (the new band formed by Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer Jason Newsted) is preparing to release their first full-length album on August 6th. Entitled Heavy Metal Music, it is a powerful hard rock release that is sure to please the millions of fans that have followed Jason since he joined Metallica in the […]
