Just a little bit of every kind of everything ever.
Here’s a few new things to listen to - first up, the new Massive Attack song, which was just released a few hours ago. Tripped out and druggy as hell!
Marni Nixon, possessor of one of the greatest voices you’ve ever heard without knowing it was her voice you were hearing, died this past Sunday in NYC. Breast cancer got her at age 86.
This is Choice Sides. Brought to you by Chick Counterfly and myself out of a love and passion for music. This post stems from a prior Open Thread I wrote a while back which was basically a music review of singer/songwriter Chelsea Wolfe. And people who are often silent kind of came out of the woodwork to talk about…
I’m currently listening to Say So, the new album from a band called Bent Knee. On first impression, it sounds like 2nd-and-3rd-album-era Alanis Morrissette hired King Crimson to be her backing band...only the songs are better. Way better, and it’s not like her 2nd and 3rd albums sucked. These cats are just in a…
6 months. 12 releases. Capsule reviews and songs to stream.
Now I’m not talking about festivals, but just normal, everyday shows with a headliner and 1 or 2 openers. Any you’ve seen that still strike you as weird?
Oh. My. God. Today there is news of a release of new (old) Curve music being released! At some point in the history of Curve, J.G. Thirlwell (Foetus) remixed some of the first Curve songs ever to be released. Today, Dean (bassist and founder of Curve), released these remixes. Words cannot convey my level of…
The new Radiohead record blends the sophistication of their years here with their quintessential, timeless elements. New videos. New sounds. New Moon. May 2016
If you like it, its on iTunes for $0.99
Today’s creative challenge is inspired by this passage that WinnieTheWoot shared from tumblr with us last night. Crime Noir as written by Hemingway. (It’s best if you read it out loud to get the full voice over effect.)
I have been a wreck lately. Hella heartbroke. Searching for salvation in another and doing a lot of falling on my face. So Lemonade, the passion, the power, the realness, it has been hitting me hard.
Don’t hog it all for yourself - we want some, too!
I came across this nifty little tool courtesy of boingboing. Fulfilling the internet’s promise of the atemporal and post-geographical, Radiooooo allows you to pick any country on the map and any decade from 1900 on, and then proceeds to play you a string of popular songs from that particular region and era. There are…

Country/Americana music legend Merle Haggard died today on his 79th birthday. Born in Oildale, CA, he rose from a petty crime-committing kid to one of the biggest stars in country music. Viewed both worshipfully and with great suspicion by the Nashville music establishment, he stayed true to his own vision ‘til the…
Are y’all getting sick of all that bro-country crap clogging up country radio? Well, so are some of the guys that sing it.
Tancred’s new record is here to assure you that spring has sprung and there is no time to waste. Power pop sparkles in poison capsules.
Wire is a great band if you’ve never heard of them, probably my favorite band of all time and arguably one of the most influential bands in terms of people they’ve influenced to pick up a guitar to try it themselves. You can thank them for bringing you Minor Threat, The Cure, REM, The Melvins, Sonic Youth, Black Flag,…
Sisyphus. Beak and Claw. Then reality bites.
