The Healing Sound of TwiceToasted

It’s pretty common for artists to have passions beyond the music. But it’s not that common for this passion to be medical science. It’s also not that common for a song called “Shawarma” to win the Best Hip-Hop Serenade 4 Valentine’s Day. But the musician-physician Tanaka Mupinga a.k.a.TwiceToasted is up

Review: Young Thug — “JEFFERY”

Review: Young Thug — “JEFFERY”

Before I start this review, just want to say — this might be one of my favorite trap projects of 2016. The Atlanta rapper, Young Thug, brings catchy lyrics, smooth melodies, and strange flows to the table on this work. Young Thug has always reached my expectations, for as long

Song review: Dinosaur Beard — “Dialect Drum”

There are a lot of cafes & restaurants these days that sound like law firms, Smith & Daughters or Colonial era trading companies. Then there is Dinosaur Beard. Not a cafe, although it would damning rule as the name for one. Dinosaur Beard, musician, entity, and pseudonym for Melbourne based

Review: Jandek — “The Ray”

Review: Jandek — “The Ray”

A Jandek studio album in 2019 — it’s a surprise, to say the least. The last time the Representative of Corwood Industries released an album, it was 5 hours of piano/theremin duets that tested the patience of even the most dedicated fans. The album had a sense of solemn closure

There are times when I stumble onto recordings that contain certain elements borrowed from my favorite musicians, all packaged in a cohesive whole. The latest EP from a Polish industrial metal band Whalesong is an example of just that. The first side of the EP starts off with huge chunks

Review: White Denim — “Side Effects”

Review: White Denim — “Side Effects”

Since White Denim’s fantastic and criminally underappreciated 2018 release “Performance” I’ve considered myself a pretty massive fan of the band’s music, even if I was late to the party. These guys have an invigorating blend of swirling, electrifying Psychedelia experimentation and accessible, chorus-heavy Classic Rock revival jams that I haven’t

Review: PUP — “Morbid Stuff”

Review: PUP — “Morbid Stuff”

PUP’s morose and delectable blend of The Menzingers and Pinkerton on this album is nothing short of pure candy to my ears. In my opinion, the strongest release they’ve come out with so far! These guys have quickly proven themselves as one of the most interesting and memorable bands of
