The SXSW festivities were in full effect when I sat down with Australian singer-songwriter Jarryd James for an interview. For some artists, it takes an entire career to make it to the top of the country’s music charts; however, for James, that success came a bit quicker in his home country of Australia. Peaking at […]

Is Deep Cuts’s aesthetic pink silk because it’s in their most recent cover photo on their Facebook page? Or is Chase Harris wrapped in pink silk because it’s their aesthetic? Either way, Deep Cuts sound the way it feels to roll around in pink silk while incense smoke swirls through the air along with thoughts […]

Their futuristic dream-pop sound, layered with synthesizers and low frequency, creates a “vintage drum machine sound and Motorik brim.” They don’t confine their sound to any rules or norms, but instead decide to create something new entirely out of the box within the electronic […]

His music is rooted in the classic genres of Mexican music such as bolero, but Rafael Meza, also known as Pehuenche, is adding a modern new flare to older styles.

If you know me, you know my disdain for StubHub. I will admit, there is probably no logic reason for me to hold such ill-will towards the ticketing giant, but alas, I never said I was perfectly logical. With that said, when I saw the line-up StubHub had set up for their second night at […]
