Music Review: De Stijl music reissues Diazepam Nights, Helot Revolt and Glen Meadmore

There is a greater and greater presence of openly LGBT musical artists today performing in the public gaze and, as the years have gone by, the arrival of a queer artist garners less and less vocal protests. A few decades ago, there were no provocative MTV lesbian makeout sessions or yawn-inducing pop stars teasing their bisexuality. One day, maybe even […]

Shaky Knees Festival: The Strokes, FIDLAR, Viet Cong

This Mother’s Day Weekend I spent most of my time in some sort of crowd, watching some performance in heart of Downtown Atlanta. You see, Shaky Knees brought together a one-of-a-kind line-up in the green leafy expanse of Central Park (a park called Central, in Atlanta). Naturally, I did my best to go to ever show I could manage. Starting from my favorite, […]

Black Denim Blitz by The Hip Priests The Turbojugend way of life is pretty much non-existent in South Florida. The Miami chapter for example currently holds 7 members (yes, Turbojugends have chapters). My guess is that it’s way too cool a movement for such a flaky city like Miami. Don’t get me wrong, some people down here tear up some Turbonegro BUT that’s […]

MOVIE REVIEW: Contracted

Contracted (2013) Starring Najarra Townsend, Caroline Williams and Alice MacDonald Written and Directed by Eric England Horror used to be fairly simple.  There was big-budget horror you could see in the theaters and low-budget horror you caught on video or on television.  With multiple mediums (Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant, hundreds of channels on DirecTV, et al), it has become impossible […]

Corners “My Baby/Automatic Man” Review

Los Angeles’ Corners consists of Tracy Bryant, Billy Changer and Rick Mabery. Let me tell you kiddies, Corners does lo-fi right. Their combination of muted vocals with clean, beautifully loud analog tube amp guitars and minimalist drums is something so many bands fuck up that it never ceases to amaze me. They’ve figured out the perfect lo-fi garage sound. Whoever […]
