Interview: The Julie Ruin’s Sara Landeau

Randomly catching my ear a few weeks ago, “Ha Ha Ha” off The Julie Ruin’s brand new EP , Run Fast is punk with 60’s retro influences at its finest. Determined to discover who was behind this infectious tune, I uncovered the culprits were legendary Riot Grrrl maven Kathleen Hanna’s band The Julie Ruin featuring […]

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.

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 […]

Hearing during our interview that so far on the tour, they’d noticed […]

Every Monday, I will weed through and compile a list of some of the most intriguing press releases to come across […]

Interview: Souls of Mischief

As we mark hip-hop’s 40th anniversary, few would debate Souls of Mischief’s influence and impact repping Oakland, West Coast hip-hop and the MC craft in general. Commemorating their own milestone this summer, they’re celebrating their landmark 93’ Til Infinity album , which some say defined a generation and sits atop several top hip-hop album lists, […]

Interview: Tristan ‘Mack’ Wilds

If Tristan ‘Mack’ Wilds looks very familiar, he should. He’s lit up the big and small screens as a rising talented actor over the past few years with prominent roles in shows like “The Wire” and “90210” and critically-acclaimed movies like “Red Tails”, “Half Nelson” and “The Secret Life of Bees”.
